how would HQ downgrade Visvim/Kaws/CLOT/? It would only "downgrade" the brand if it was sold at like Plenty or some other chain retailers... But HQ is still like LS/GF/SD.. they are independent runned stores that sell exclusive brands that you can't get at "regular" malls/stores.
I never said HQ will downgrade those brands. Infact, it makes more sense if HQ were to sell those brands. I said if RC (richmond centre) was to sell those brands it will downgrade it.
