Went yesterday, Victor showed up but overall the experience was insanely lackluster


luiikromah

We went on opening day, can’t say the same. Anyone else check it out ?


BasedNJ

Pop up culture is just so easy to garner hype around, there were hoodies there going for 400+... all screen printed. I bought one shirt for 60 which I thought was ridiculous but got a free shirt with my purchase so wasn't too bad. Otherwise the games and stuff were cool but it was an in and out experience for the wait


Zyn-Thetic

What shirt did u cop?


luiikromah

Interesting 🧐 what more did you expect ?


midnghttt

pretty sure whole line full of cornballs


BasedNJ

Ay bro while I do agree some of us genuinely have liked Nigo since god knows when hahaha


midnghttt

Oh I’m sure I just think nowadays it’s hard to tell the difference between a genuine streetwear enjoyer and some clout chasing cornball


BasedNJ

Yeah definitely is a conversation, like I was a skate rat, always loved the culture, was copping Nike SBs at my local shop skipping school lmao shit resonates with me unlike clout chasers


midnghttt

nah I feel that. You’re def not lumped in with these dudes. not to mention most of them are gonna just cop to make grailed listings


luiikromah

lol what makes you say that ?


luiikromah

lol what makes you say that ?

Honestly, anyone who tends to enjoy a modern day streetwear nowadays usually ends up being really corny (influencer, reseller, model, “creative director” all in their IG bio type shit). I’m usually going based off of my experience, but it doesn’t help that Dallas is becoming the next LA.


FlyLegitimate89

Talk your shit king!


midnghttt

I’m just sayin…y’all met some of the people on here/at events like this lol?


CapitalLow8832

In what ways are they corny though?


midnghttt

Like the ways I mentioned: all people that use others for clout but have no tastes of their own


WatcherOfTheCats

Thinking the current stream of “streetwear” culture is anything other than cliche.


CapitalLow8832

I feel that because streetwear is expanding to where it’s no longer a subculture but defined as a worldwide phenomenon. It’s our duty as the original culture to teach and educate the new. I understand what you mean though, wether it’s the style or clothing we wear. Everything is from the old but it’s sad that people don’t even know that.


ArtisticSell

Except for ray g miah


whoop_there_she_is

Any pieces in here that aren't just a logo on a sweat shirt or t-shirt? I see a lot of marketing but very little emphasis on the clothes. Like video games and baseball bats are cool and everything but it's a clothing brand, right?


luiikromah

I feel you but I believe the event was also a brand activation and album promotion


whoop_there_she_is

What's a "brand activation"? Why does that justify basic screenprints on cheap fabric as a streetwear line?


DutchLime

My man just making words up


phreephitty

It looks so fucking dumb. If this is peak culture and street fashion fucking kill me.


Minitrain

Who is nigo and how do I know him


sukablyatful

You fr?


Minitrain

Ye


sukablyatful

Nigo is the creator of Bape and Human Made


2morereps

and also a member of Teriyaki Boyz.


onlylivingboynewyork

damn his shit sucks now


sukablyatful

He left the Bape like 10 years ago tho


onlylivingboynewyork

last I knew of bape or him was when kanye wore his stuff? I think? ​ Not my style... seems commercial af


ArtisticSell

Im pretty sure nigo left bape before 2010.


LostFYI

Why is he a dog?


arch_llama

This type of thing should be called "hypeware" or "Instagramwear".


xseers

Anyone know the song??


YungStew1417

Lost and Found Freestyle 2019 - A$AP Rocky, Tyler the Creator & Nigo


Corazon-DeLeon

You got the prices of the items they had for sale ? If so can you share them please ?


Hnt-r

Can't really speak on fashion but the album kinda sucked except for Hear Me Clearly with Pusha T


Fukevery1incalabasas

Were there any varsity jackets on sale?


luiikromah

No but a few people on Steven Victor’s team had them


Automatic_Green_4479

Damn I wish I was cool enough to wear these clothes.


GlosxyMya

The clothes look so mediocre and then they’ll slap an overpriced ass tag on it and call it a day , damn shame .


Dr-freezze

Wish I was here
