Problem is, everyone is too busy kissing his ass to let him know that the quality and consistency needs to be stepped up.
I've seen it even in this forum. Everyone is too busy proclaiming themselves to be a fucking "Diamond Lifer" instead of just keeping it real with the guy.
I mean, there isn't anything wrong with still really liking the brand, the designs, and what it is all about, while at the same time letting the guy know that we've all noticed that quality and consistency is seriously lacking, especially on the most expensive items.
But what happens is so many fucking people are just begging for a retweet, while kissing his ass, that the few people that are willing to speak the truth are just drowned out by all of those other clowns.
I don't know about everyone else, but I can't keep affording to take my chances on ordering $80 fleece hoodies when the sizing, quality and arm length vary so fucking much from season to season.
You can go on the Stussy website and order 80%/20% fleece pullovers for like $50 - $55 dollars. And you can't tell me that those pieces are so much different than these $80 Diamond hoodies. But at least with Stussy, I can at least know what I'm going to get ahead of time - but if for some reason it doesn't fit like it should? They at least have a return/exchange policy.
I applaud you, heisenberg.
Lately the quality has been sub-par, and you are exactly right. I'm not going to risk $80 +$10 shipping for a hoody that might fit like shit when it arrives. I'll stick to buying some of the better designed T's, and that's it until Nick can prove he can put out fleece on a consistent basis.
cosign, and cosign.
i'm just disappointed in diamond overall... reusing designs(different colorways of same shirts for two seasons), lack of originality(smoke ring pt. 2? c'mon son) and diminishing quality(thin ass crewneck sweaters, multiple threading mistakes on shirts not to mention uneven graphic printing, and a carabiner that doesn't even close properly).
While I liked the second smoke ring design, one thing I HAVE to agree with is the carabiner. I bought that and was thoroughly disappointed. I haven't had a problem with anything else though.
