Not too happy about my bag...the only good thing was the fitted I wanted actually came.

Got a pair of Boris Denim Jeans, but they sent me the wrong size...I specified 36/30...ended up with 36/34...and these are SKINNY jeans...I'm not a skinny dude or else I wouldn't have ordered XL grab bag...

Two white T-shirts which neither are really tight.

The snap dress shirt is okay, I'll probably rock this...same blue/green one in the above photo.

That's all I got...if anyone wants to trade for the jeans...I'll trade for just about anything since I can't even wear them.

Honestly you guys are all complaining too much, which is part of the reason why Mishka stopped doing Grab Bags for a while. Yes the grab bags aren't nearly as dope as they were in the past, but that was before sites like Plundr and Jackthreads existed which is a more profitable way of liquidation.

Point being, grab bags are cool. In the end you're always going to come out a winner dollar per dollar, although you're taking a gamble and might now like what you get.

As for the denim issue above, I agree having a slim fit in 36 or above is pretty dumb... But as far as the length most smaller companies stick to a scale where the inseem gradually gets longer in relation to the waist size. Some selvedge denim manufacturers only make one standard inseem size that requires it to be tailored to fit the owner.

This is pretty much why I didn't cop. I'm a XXL, I can't be fitting in any Mishka pants. And it looked like every grab bag got pants. Plus all the keychains, pencil cases, stickers, patches and whatnot. Not really what I'm looking for in a grab bag.

I understand your point, but I gotta disagree. I got a Black Scale $50 black box on their last sale and got 4 tees. The Diamond $100 mystery boxes were either 4 fleece items + a bonus or 7 tees + a bonus. Throwing things like pencil cases, wallets, keychains and stuff like that in there in order to make up the price is just kinda wack to me. And I love Mishka...

^ the reason id never cop a bag

the fuck am i gonna do w pencil cases, keychains, magnets, wallets, trading cards, etc...might as well throw candy in there......

not only that but mishka just comes off too cartoony and kiddish to me these days

they used to be one of my favorite brands but i guess i outgrew them

no hate against the brand they stayin true to themselves and thats whatsup

they serve an audience just not one im much a part of anymore...w/ the exception of a piece here or there

Mishka only makes 34" inseams. That's written all over the product descriptions. Skinny jeans are trendy right now, that's what people are buying so that's what they're making. Their straight alternative are the Alexeis that retail at nearly $200, there was no way you were getting those in a $100 box, you have to be realistic at some point.

I understand your point, but I gotta disagree. I got a Black Scale $50 black box on their last sale and got 4 tees.

What else would you expect? Black Scale makes 90% tees. Even if they wanted to they couldn't give you anything else.

Fleece printed on blanks, at 4 for $100 you're still not getting your money's worth; and out of those 7 tees, 4 are throwaway from Pac Sun.

Accessories are not making up the price... They're the bonus. With pair of pants and a button-up you're already getting over the retail value of a $100 box. You're breaking even at Plundr prices. Added to that you get tees and a hat. And stickers/magnets, which - by the way - if you don't like stickers I'm not even sure why you like the brand.

Also, most of you guys got $100 boxes, what did you expect, a goldbar in there? I want to see a $500 from someone, and tell me that guy didn't get hooked up way more than anybody else here.

Accessories are just accessories. They're cooler than whatever wallet/keychain you already had, and you got it for free - if you have keys or money, I'm sure you can find some use for them. Shit, if you have a cousin or a little brother, you have their goddamn Christmas present already figured out.

And if you got a trading card, holler at me because I didn't even know they made those.

I didn't get any stickers though... smh

October 15, 2012 @ 15:23:49


My $200 came today. Really pleased, despite the fact that I'll never fit into the shirt or be able to pull off the cardigan.
If you can't make it all out:
1 Fitted
1 Snapback
Dmitri Jeans
3 tees
1 polo
1 shirt
1 cardigan
1 polo shirt
1 Hoodie
pencil case, wallet, keyrings

Thanks Мишка!
October 15, 2012 @ 15:37:15


Love my bag! Totally worth it in my book, I got way more than I paid for. Thanks Mishka for the hook up, I will def be grabbing another one next time.

Gnou,

First, I said I can't fit into the pants, so once I found out the bags had pants, I immediately lost interest. That drops the value of the bag in my opinion. In addition, all of the hats that I've seen posted (the fitteds anyway), I already own. I'm not talking about anyone else. I'm talking about value FOR ME. Like I said, I love Mishka, but the bag didn't appeal to me, once I saw what kind of stuff was in it. Pencil cases, wallets, key chains...those are fine, they're not for me, but like you said, they're bonus items anyway. Stickers, sure...but I don't think anyone got any stickers.

And honestly, I like you Gnou, because you always bring the good info about what's happening with Mishka. So I'm not going to get into a pissing contest about the coolness of Mishka vs. Diamond or Black Scale or any company that offers bag bags/boxes. But there was no need to diss Diamond shit as Pac Sun throwaways. You may not like their brand, but if I get something in a Diamond box I don't like, at least I can resell it. I can't resell Mishka. And let's not act like 90% of the stuff sent out in the grab bags isn't available on PLNDR or Jack Threads or wasn't available from Mishka itself for 50% off just a few weeks ago.

If you like everything that Mishka makes or if you can fit into their pants, or if you don't have a lot of stuff, then the grab bag is a great deal. But for me, it wasn't.
October 15, 2012 @ 20:45:23
Damn that 200 grab bag is sick! Cant wait for mine

your grab bag is nice. I wasn't feeling the others

The comparison just doesn't stand though. There's 400 pages of chatter for both Diamond and Black Scale, only 16 here. I wasn't so much dissing them as pointing to the fact that Diamond unload their unsold merch the same way Mishka do, and considering how many more points of sale and appeal they have in the first place, it seems unfair to condemn Mishka but not Diamond.

Sure. My point was that you kind of knew that in the first place, didn't you? You probably perceived my message more harshly because I responded to every one in one foul swoop, but you have to acknowledge that you get a lot more than your money's worth. And you get Mishka gear - that means both classic tees and weird leopard print cardis (which I own by the way @thefauxbot, and it's not as hard to rock as you might think it is). I don't feel like there was any false advertising - maybe just bad luck, but that's what happens with grab bags.

Hey man, no flame intended. Never said there was false advertising. You definitely get more than your money's worth. But no more so than grab bags/boxes by Diamond or Black Scale or Flying Coffin or Bloodbath, etc.

Point being, I didn't intend to condemn Mishka, just stating a comparison. Mishka is available on PLNDR and Jack Threads. They also have 50% off sales. There are cheaper ways to get Mishka product. The same can't be said for Diamond, for example. So those 7 tees you get are worth $210+ retail. Those 4 pieces of fleece are $250+. Just as much, or more, than the Mishka box. And for me personally, I mostly want tops, so a $100 grab bag with a pair of pants that I can't wear or probably can't resell just doesn't appeal to me. I can wear the Diamond product or sell what I don't like. If I can't wear the Mishka product I'm probably stuck with it.

I'm not trying to defame Mishka in any way. They are one of the brands I rep hard. I'm wearing a Death Adder shirt right now, actually. Just stating why the box didn't really appeal to me.

How many lbs did your 200 dollar grab weigh?
