^Supreme is a basic brand for sure but they are subtle with their designs. Instead of focusing on "how loud can we make this?" they focus on using different materials and patterns. What specifically annoyed me about their logo was how basic their font was, the font just looked off with what they were trying to pull off.

Supreme has been around since 94, staying successful & relevant is harder than you all think.

sometimes its not about the money,you guys is herms

i see where cam is coming from,them dudes put blood sweat and tears into crisp

I feel like ben is going to do the right thing and say forget nancy and yoshi

cause he going to roll with his homie

you guys are wack,if you believe in something and love something money is not mandatory,its a bonus


I see what ur saying but it doesn't apply to this show. I said this last week, but Ben and cam really haven't Invested that much into crisp. It makes no sense for cam to be so loyal to it. Really, they've been working on that shit for like a year at most? They made a tee and some hoodies to fill one lookbook? And everything just kind of fell in their laps. From the deal with the japanese guy to meeting yosi. It was all like "hey lets talk to this person and see wht happens." I didn't see any blood sweat or tears... Or at least the show doesn't convey that.

This is their first venture into the fashion industry and Cam thinks he can run shit? i like how Yosi said "come with me, I'll teach u the industry." it makes so much more sense to take the deal, get the experience, and make the money to start a new brand on their own money and their own terms.

Cam is a fucking idiot. I wanna just punch him in the face.

Why would you try to sell the rasta monsta spray? How much money are u gonna make off that? Assuming they have 500 bottles, and they make $10 profit off each bottle, they get $5000. How are they gonna manufacture 5000 hoodies at $1 each to sell the Gadzooks?

And the whole weed spray is linked to rasta monsta thing is because they are using the same name and logo. Ppl like the weed spray because of the name (according to Dom). Just make a new fucking logo for the weed spray! Isn't that what Ben does for a living? With a different logo Rene and Cam can make the case that the name is a coincidence and is unlinked to the drink. Then Rene can tell the Caribbean league and Skate shop to take it up with whoever makes the weed spray.

Heh. This show...


Bro you doing too much with this analysis man. Its an HBO 30 min show. Take it for what it is.

i liked this episode and I'm really liking this season. All the events really fit in with the narrative of the story line. Look back at the hate this season got on this forum from the first few eps. Look at all the discussion the past few eps have created on this board.

So much passion up there ^. I like the amount of analyzing that Boogz did. Considering it's true. C'mon they are basically implying there's no blood sweat or tears being put in at this time. Just random come ups and pitfalls.

People just hate the fact that this show makes "Making it" look too easy. The writing imo is on point and keeps me watching for what's going to happen next.

Don't badmind me.

That "Fuckin Crisp" reminded me a lot of those Supreme x A.P.C. jeans they did a few years ago. Same color stitching and placement

I have a horrible feeling that HBO won't renew for a third season.

Sad. Second season was actually good and watchable compared to the first.

Finale was the first episode I actually laughed out loud. Which is a good thing because I never found myself laughing at Entourage.

That's because it is, lol.

Solid finale. I had a feeling Ben was going to bail on Yosi when they showed him slaving away doing design work.

I don't know, HBO is pretty good about letting shows get off the ground and build a following. I think it'll be back.

I liked the finale other than the stuff with Rasta Monsta. I would have liked to have seen Domingo get fucked up. I can't see Rene just forgetting about that especially that it caused him to lose his fiance.
