Black scale was tight 2-3 years ago. Now its gonna fall like crooks and castles and other brands for trying to do too much in their designs
I just personally wasn't impressed whatsoever with any of the pieces this entire year. Spring was cool, i did buy the Antwerp leather pocket tee, a ton of graphic tees, the A$AP hoodie, and a black henley, the cashme- I mean acrylic hoodie, but everything else just doesn't have the same soul that the brand had once before.
I mean fall/winter of this year's cut and sew just looked nothing like the black scale that I fell in love with. I dunno if that's because Rob Garcia left or if there's a different design aesthetic, but i'm not feeling it like I once did at all.
STOOPS ROB GARCIA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR CUT & SEWN.
ROB DESIGNED A FEW SEASONS.
WINTER YOU HAVENT EVEN SEEN YET?
I know that he has nothing to do with his cut and sew and it sucks. He made the best shit you guys ever had imo. Pentagram leatherback was him right? Studded letterman that was him right? Those are classics you guys put out.
All i'm saying is that Rob's shit was edgy and mysterious. The shit now looks like every other streetwear brand. Those Stingray henleys look just like something Crooks and Castles would do. I just miss the unorthodox shit you guys did. I don't see what makes black scale in black scale anymore. It's too clean and too conventional now in my opinion.
Leather pentagram my design
Studded letterman my design
Lol. You don't even have a clue.
Then why aren't we getting those anymore b? What happened to that demonic shit?
You will get them again very soon.
We are telling a story behind Black Scale.
The graphics started those stories and that's why the graphics always remain the same.
The outerwear is also telling a story but its not as easy to do like the graphics.
When we release the Black Scale book hope you will get a better understanding.
You can't always do demonic outerwear because not everyone is demonic.
For instant if you look at how I dress everyday I change it up. For the most part yes I'm in black but when I mix it all up people always get thrown off.
Another reason we don't go all out dark in our pieces is because we want to show the different things we can do. That's the nice part about growing. Some people remain loyalist and they grow with the brand but some might not agree with what we do and we can't do nothing about that.
In America people are very spoiled with trends and they follow. In other parts of the world they love what we do because they can't get it.
It's a hard balance but as long as we are developing what we like because its our vision then I can't really say anything else.
