So then what happened?
Did the owners decide to fire a bunch of cute girls and replace them with dudes that a) have never skated or have no ties to any culture that Alife relates to (except for hip-hop), b) used to wear LRG (probably still do), Enyce, Girbaud, etc and c) are simply transplants for Dipt.
Either way, it doesn't make sense. One of the reasons I haven't stepped foot into Dipt in close to five years is because the staff was wack as fuck, and I can't say I'm thrilled to have that same vibe carry over to Alife...
u, sir, are the definition of a emo hypebeast if you let the style of the staff of a store (not the service) dictate whether or not you'll purchase some gear. its not rocket science. you walk in, buy your shit, walk out. what the fuck does a "vibe" have to do with anything? how long do you really spend in that tiny store for it too matter? do the salesmen really need to be skaters for you to feel like Alife is still part of your little hypebeast emo culture, therefore you can feel comfortable buying from their store? Considering you havent stepped foot into dipt in 5 years, i get that your not young. but damn, i guess ignorance isnt something one grows out of easily.
