There's a lot of talk about The Hundreds selling out...
What's everyones take on this?
I Personally think it they haven't sold out but expanding just like any other person would...


let me start off by saying im a huge hundreds fan and supporter.

however i do think there selling out in a way. At the lecture bobby talked about "being forced to expand to stores in the mall"...i know times are tough, but are they really THAT tough. correct me if im wrong but i thought a big part of the hundreds was it being exclusive. not just collabs and the 5th collection etc just exclusive in general. I cant say its a fact but i highly doubt the hundreds losing 5 or 6 accounts is going to have a critical effect.

i would think staying true to youre roots and original goal is worth the loss.

The Attic coupon doesn't work on Fall Stuff because The Hundreds doesn't allow the current season to be discounted I believe

why would any company want to start incurring a loss?

ok.

im not saying any company WANTS or aims toward a loss.

its just that taking a small loss is better than selling out in my opinion.

I was actually at that lecture where he spoke about expanding to mall stores...
I saw a store called Boarders carry them at the Glendale mall, I was disappointed when I saw it because it seemed like it wasn't exclusive...but in a way you have to expect it when your trying to run a business and don't have other accounts to expand to other than mall stores..I never buy anything from other stores other than TH stores..It makes me feel like the product is more exclusive and put together plus you get a pretty cool bag along with the purchase..Its all about the shopping experience to me

i agree 100% about the shopping experience.

im just saying, look at brands like supreme (its garbage imo, just an example.) they manage to stay exclusive forever.

Boarders is a skate shop that is owned by 3 Korean guys jay chris and mike who happen to be friends of Bobby and I'm sure that's the only reason why they allow them to carry TH. I used to work at Xtreme when I was younger which is also owned by the same 3 guys and they carry the brand as well.

^no. they drop thursday.

and yeah xtreme was about 6-7 years ago. i had to get a work permit from my high school to work there so i was probably 15-16 lol. that shit was super cool back in the day. i would just hang out talk shit watch skate vids and help peeps from time to time. sundays were the best cause there were no bosses so we'd do nothing eat all day and play skate inside the store and shit. i miss it. plus the discounts never hurt cool

Why every time a brand is carried at a local mall people consider the brand to be selling out? Like people have stated before, it is not like they carry the whole line. A couple shirts here and there some shoes and a hat or two. That's why they have store only items and the Rosewood collection, for the hardcore devotees. Wear it because you like and "SUPPORT" the brand not just for the exclusivity. Yeah it's "COOL" wearing something no one else has but serious saying a brand is dead or selling out because they carry it at the mall. Grow up.cool

Haven't heard the term 'selling out' since i was in high school.

and that's the type of mentality you have to be in to worry about 'selling out'.

support your favorites.
