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 heard the owner of Commonwealth in VA built personal relationships with some of the higher ups of Supreme and thats how they hooked up. I think he used to work for Zoo York or something. They had some kind of falling out though, needless to say C'mon no longer sells Supreme
Make sense, I'm curious if some stores are just buying from the online shop and reselling or if they're connected with some ebay cats that always have a supply.
Most likely reselling. On the supreme website it only list two other stores (commissary and Leilow) that sell supreme other than their flagships. I remember Commonwealth being listed when they had their account
