the breakdown of the mystery box.

8 tees + 1 wallet + stickers = $120

to me, the stickers and wallet are negligible. i know the wallet retails for like $40. but i dont need a wallet. and if i needed a new wallet, i'd cop something high end like my current ferragamo one. maybe i can resell the diamond wallet for like $20? whatever...

anyways, if you divide the $120 / 8 tees, it comes out to $15 per tee.

then there was the Black Friday sale, where if u were lucky enough, you could get a standard diamond tee (approx $35) for 50% off. or $17.50 per tee.

if i lived in LA and was able to go to the shop for the sale, it would have def made more sense to pay an extra $2.50 to buy a shirt i KNOW i'd wear instead of leaving it up to chance in the mystery box.

diamond makes awesome tees, but i honestly, not everything they've made is for me. also, i run the risk of possibly doubling up on some shirts that i already own and would have gotten in the mystery box.

i wish they didn't charge tax and shipping so it came out to $120 even. then i could have traded a quarter for 8 tees.

i can't speak for the dude's personal financial situation...

but generally speaking, "more people paying for his shit means more income"... also means more costs for him too. its the variable cost business model. the more customers you have, the more production costs go up, you need to hire more employees, pay for more advertising, etc. basically the bigger your company is, the more it costs to run and maintain it.

so just because Diamond is bigger now doesn't necessarily mean Nick is rolling in more dough than he was a couple years ago when it was smaller. (it could even be less if the required a bigger investment to grow the company to its current size).

again, generally speaking. Nick could be a starving artist or a fat cat. i dont know him personally.

gold, Nick has got some money in the bank. He drives a nice ass BMW and has a dope ass house from pictures I've seen. But if he produces more product, the price to make each product goes down.

Nick said way back in the day that stores like Karmaloop or MLTD would never get the regular line and he would only produce special designs for them. Well we see now that that's not true. I'm sure that Karmaloop is extremely far down the list as to what stuff gets shipped there, which is why shit takes so long to appear on the site, but still.

the online department I know has changed a lot, mostly with more people being added, but IMO they do a horrible job. There is always someone complaining about a lost package or a lost order and getting a hold of them sucks ass. I know this because it happened to me. I had to get in touch with Nick, and even then he was telling me all of the mystery boxes were sent out. Turns out the one I ordered (of course) was somehow still in the warehouse. Took like 2 months to finally get it. Nick also promised he'd send me some more shit to compensate me for the wait but as is usual, that never happened.

So I guess you can say as Diamond popularity went up, the customer service went down. I liked the days when it was just joey putting in work shipping shit out but it would be impossible for that to happen now. IDK why im typing this. Just bored and sick again.


Joey was never in charge of shipping bro. His name was just registered to the UPS account.

I didn't know you didn't get the extra stuff and this is the first I heard of it. I don't pack orders or ship any of our product, I don't even work in the same building as the shipping or sales dept. I emailed the shipping dept & called them to send you your stuff & if they didn't then my bad. You never hit me up again or let me know you didn't get it so how was I suppose to know?

I think the Mystery Box is priced very fair. We honestly don't have to make mystery boxes to get rid of product, we can't even supply our demand 90% of the time. The whole idea of mystery boxes is to hook you guys up with a good deal which is actually a little less than what stores buy the product from us for.
It's nice to see that people appreciate getting product for half off and then their are some that just want to complain about something they didn't even buy. Either way it's all good.

Thanks to everyone for all the support & maybe some of the unwanted tees in the mystery box will make a nice Christmas gift.

I also want to apologize for the delay on the Curren$y collab but the hat manufacturer is bullshittin & taking forever to finish them. The tees & jackets turned out great so as soon as the hats come in we will be droppin the whole collection.

Since none of the items you listed are shirts like that, I think I am rightful to have an opinion. Especially since you said what we're all are waiting for. I am not looking forward to those releases so that fact alone makes your statement invalid. I was pointing out the error in your equation with my opinion. You took it as hostile and now I am very sad.


ight i apologize..

The best is when your on fairfax and you see people dogging eachother and wearing the same clothes... All that should be videotaped.

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.

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. >smh

Yea it's pretty dope I've just never worn it. Seems to be the case with a lot of the tees I've bought. I just would buy so many at once, and shelve the rest, forget about them, and come back like what the fuck was I thinking? So selling off some gems so some other people can enjoy them. I mean i doubt anyone sees the DL3 in Tiff/Red anymore.

Man I remember when I used to think like you guys. Getting mad when "new" fans jumped on the diamond brand. Why I got upset idk prolly the same reason u guys posted this. There is no point in trying to say ur a true diamond og. Man there is a lot of people who prolly have more diamond gear than most of us and they prolly aren't even on this forum. We all at one point or another had to "jump" into diamond at one point too right? Alot of us waited for the cai and sade tees. That dont make us more respectable. Man yall talking about a fuckin t shirt and shit lol The only difference is no one has to brag about being a true diamond og. We know who we are and who isn't. I guess I don't see the point of making it a point to let everyone know u wore diamond before everyone. We all here on this board got some true heat and so if the new cats wanna jump on diamond let em. Who cares? I'm almost off diamond seeing as how I don't like the direction they going with these new tees but in the end we all still like the same brand. Let it go

To be honest with you. I don't care who wears Diamond I got over wearing the same item as someone else when I was 19. My problem is I come here to find Info, and all I see every page is 10 fucking retards crying about slow shipping, or why hasn't anyone called back. This should be a place of discussing new product, drops, and occassionally you can find a nice gem to buy. Not a place for whiny fucks complaining cause it's been a week and they have no package. My point with the old stuff is that I would order and maybe not see shit for a month, and standing in line Memorial was cool cause dudes would come back and show what they made out with at the sale. None of that occurs anymore, Sometimes it feels like a lost brand.
