The funny thing about all this is the newer faces Diamond has brought out. I like how you guys call yourselves "Diamond Lifers" yet you didnt know anything about the tees with a hip tag a while back. All of a sudden you guys are calling everything heat and Voila! We have you guys.
I was with a few of the real Diamond OG heads earlier and we were laughing at all this. Its a brand, with a following and youll be over it (like us) in a few years. Props to Nick, dude has been doing real shit since 1998. Sometimes i know we all wish we could go back in time and trust me this is one of those times....Some of us, and boy do i mean some had to go head over heels to find shit. I had to beg Willy Santos to save me any Diamond tees he could at the shop. Or when Digital Gravel and GreyOne had shirts online, that would sell out in a day. Caliskatz too, yall dont even know. Hell even Diamond 3Dcart store was shittier than it is now!
Just ask Tones, dude didnt know what diamond even was when he came out with his Cousin to a drop and kicked it... and now some of you dudes are on your knees asking him shit...
Your all in this vicious so called "streetwear" circle. You start here and end there. Weather it be finding LRG at Macys, connecting to The Hundreds, then finding out what all these shops on a 2 block radius have to offer, its all the same. Lifestyle clothing. And at the end you just say fuck it one day.
The best is when your on fairfax and you see people dogging eachother and wearing the same clothes... All that should be videotaped.
This. I remember shelling out 100 dollars to get CAI cause I slept. Or paying a ridiculous amount of money to get the DG X Diamond collab. Even the riding Neons were hard as shit for me to cop, back when a drop for a WHOLE season would come up, and be gone by like 3 in the afternoon. I remember last Memorial day when I drove my ass from Salt Lake to L.A with wife and kid overnight just to get 50% off of stuff. Waited in that line for hours with my son cause they'd only let 10 heads in at a time. That was fun. This is not. So no disrespect, but you fuckin new heads need to get the fuck off your high horses, and whiny fucking asses. No one cares where your shipment is just be greatful you have the opportunity to purchase 24/7 and get service like this. >
