[Rip n Dip] -2013 Official Discussion Thread

Sep 11, 2012 @ 05:01
Well.. I did have a bit of an aggressive email sent to him..
Sep 11, 2012 @ 05:07
But don't go thinking that's a good idea.. I emailed right as the hat came in the mail.

Just received my Ripndip 5 panel in the mail today...the shape and fit is fucking horrible. I wear Supreme, Huf, Tql and other 5 panels fine but this just dosn't fit at all. The strap can be completely undone and it still dosnt fit. I'm guessing I got a one off dodgy one, if anyone else has had similar problems i'd love to know.

Can I have a general feel of what people think of RIPNDIP now? I am having a hard time deciding if I want to support them anymore. I like a ton of their products and have plenty of RIPNDIP that I wear almost every other day but now finding out about Ryan being a salty dude I am not sure if I can really support him anymore. I am at a crossroads at this point. I hope Ryan and Grant and everyone in RIPNDIP can figure things out soon because I miss the fun that came with supporting these guys. AND WEEKENDTAGES ARE THE SHIT!

if you like it, then wear it. out of the few people voicing their opinions on this forum, there are hundreds more that are still supporting the brand. Personally, I bought an aztec and didn't like how it looked (got caught up in the hype i guess) so I'm not sure if I'll be buying from ripndip again. maybe if they come out with something mind blowing..

@32andgrandma was it the noir or leopard, because I wear a 7 1/4 and the noirs fabric fits tight to my head no matter what setting the strap is at the back, i dont even have to have it tied and it fits flush (super weird to me), and the leopard is the deepest camp ive ever got, having wrinkles along the tops of the sides and top corners of the front. I did email and speak to Ryan though and he said it was a one-off because of time restraints and he used a different manufacturer, but he said he won't be doing that again because it didn't work out.

@magmar @mikeyei @jacobos @jacobpratt I wrote to Ryan last night at 1am telling him I was disappointed in the fit of the Leopard, as my maroon suede and noir fit great, as did my roommates nermal and aztec. He wrote back to me at 11am, so 10 hours later, telling me because of some time restraints some hats were manufactured by other manufacturers, making their shapes not what he wanted. He also mentioned he would never be using them anymore, sticking to the better ones that he knows and waiting if need be. I strongly respect people in their industry who show great customer service like that, as well as the genuine honesty that he gave me, admitting that he made a mistake. He even offered to send a replacement since they had 3 hats sitting around, so whatever other people say about Ryan and RipnDip, I do not share your feelings. And as for the problem with sizing, I am hoping it is cleared up from now on, so will be eager to buy from the next drop.

@mbad5669 Its a Nermal dude, the fit isn't just tights it's unwearable. I'm waiting to hear back from Ryan via email.

got a ripndip tee and sunglasses back when they weren't popular
Funny to see them gain a popularity
And I see why..... kitten hats
Sep 17, 2012 @ 02:51
Alright, so going back to my comment before, I grabbed the hat from my mailbox today. Fits amazing, considering they used the same manufacturer as supreme. I was excited to open it and just get the hat, but inside was a bunch of stickers, a personal handwritten letter apologizing about the fit, and on the box it wrote "sorry about the fit". Ryan does not seem one bit like a "salty guy". Just someone who cares a lot about his customers.
Sep 17, 2012 @ 05:03
I got a new blue suede in the mail from Ryan as well, apologizing for the fit of my leopard. Glad he resolved the issues

At this point, my Nermal is not wearable what so ever. It's a nice add to my little collection but other than that I simply can't wear it. It's too swallow and too small overall. I'm not even sure if I want another RipNDip camp if they all fit like this.

They don't, usually they use their same manufacturer that makes them all the same as Quiet Life, Supreme, Huf and those guys. this drop because of time constrictions and numbers constrictions (probably because A LOT of people were trying to get a lot done by that same manufacturer because apparently they are really good), they had to use some other manufacturers last minute. It usually takes 3 runs for a manufacturer to get down the shaping and style each company asks them to make for their camps, plus these guys probably weren't as good, so they didn't come out well overall. When I got my new hat from them because of a bad shaped one, Ryan mentioned in the emails that he was not going to do that again, and instead would wait until his normal manufacturer made them, even if it was late and took a while. I hope this is true and he stays to his word there. SHIT that was a long comment, just explained it out for them I guess. Hope this helped

Hopefully they can get their camps like before, because they got some good camps but what's the point if it's just gonna collect dust from it not being wearable.

Fuck this brand









Sep 18, 2012 @ 04:21
i like how you didnt even include the sup camp they ripped on for the last one.

Free country? I should fuck you up for saying that

Sep 19, 2012 @ 19:24
is it me or was did the most recent weekendtage not have "ripndip" anywhere on it... sucks, that's how i first heard about them.

Well the latest weekendtage has a little bit of an acception because grant and blake and ryan where the only ones from the main crew went to NYC (at least from what I saw). Johan, Bert and Andrew stayed back in LA in the latest weekendtage.

Don't you think that Supreme is recycling their own shit as well? Like back in the S/S 12 release they had the real tree camp cap and now in the latest season they are releasing something similar to it, it was one of the first few hats to be released I just forget the name. But thats just what I think, your opinions could differ.
Sep 23, 2012 @ 00:51
Ryan also sent me a better fitting nermal camp after I emailed him about the nermal cap from the most recent drop being way too small and unwearable. he's pretty alright
Sep 23, 2012 @ 05:39
I know most of y'all really enjoy this brand, no hate here. I got camp a year ago, hated the fit and sold it to a buddy of mine. I only found out about them by the old weekendtage's and a buddy who had alot of pocket tees. Ryan's a very cool dude, just not the biggest fan of this brand. Customer support seems to be on point. That's a biggie with me.

Went back a couple pages and read what y'all had to say. Seems like it's a consistency problem among some other things. Unfortunately, Ryan in this case probably can't reply to every single email he get's every hour or day, I'm sure he tries though. Shit's gotta be hard since this brand has grown dramatically in the past couple drops.

Sep 23, 2012 @ 18:00
^^^^^ right there with you on that, consistency can be important though, you don't want to have to buy 2 or 3 each time to make sure you get a decent one. I'm hoping it becomes more consistent, because I really like the brand, their ideas, and Ryan (since he did reply to me and made it work)

Of course, wouldn't you want your brand to be known for great quality products so you are 100% positive when you purchase something from them? Of course you can't please everyone who purchase's something from you but you can at least make the effort. Having great customer service and quality products tops any "hyped" brand out there, who don't reply to emails, forget about your orders, or straight up don't care bout their supporters and just want the money. Happens way too often.

You think he'd replace mine after a month of just laying there?
