Can any knowledgable heads shed any light on how certain stores attain Supreme accounts. Obviously Supreme is very selective and probably expensive, meaning the stores that carry the Supreme account make very little on what Supreme they sell, but how do these stores get the accounts?
I was in Detroit last weekend and a store in Birmingham, MI had a Supreme account (mostly picked over beanies from F/W '11) and they've only been in business for a few years, so it can't be that selective.
I think it all has to do with how you present your company to them, I know Commissary got their account by being a high end skateshop, they already sold brands like Original Fake.
No where in Chicago sells Supreme, even the higher end joints like Saint Alfred and RSVP Gallery that sell Original Fake and Christopher Kane and CDG, etc.
That is whack, Jebbia is pretty picky with where it is sold I guess.
I get it tho...the Chicago streetwear/punk/skate scene is severely lagging behind SF, and especially NYC, LA.
