salty

grant is speaking the truth. ripndip has just gone downhill lately. on the website the team section was taken down and the team has been behind ripndip before it even started and the website now says that ripndip was created by Ryan O'connor in '09. It dosent even metion all the other people who helped start that brand. eversince the brand moved to LA everything got worse. ripndip truely isnt what it used to be.

ryan o'connor is a salty man

Totally agree, RipNDip is not the same as when it started, grant has a point but can't deny they still make decent product, Ryan's just more money hungry with the drastic raising of prices in the last few drops.

You guys are way too judgmental honestly. If a single comment changed your perspective youre clearly not a loyal fan. This is like Kony 2012 and that clip of the Asian getting jumped. Educate yourself first before blasting your negativity like a dumby jeez. Loyal fan from the beginning right here. Keep the faith Ryan. Stay true.

Grant Yansura and Johan are the reasons I supported RipNDip when it first started, if they feel this way about the brand then something must've went wrong. I just thought it was weird that the first run of button ups were 35 and camps were 30, quickly changed to almost nothing reasonably priced. I know they're just trying to grow but you gotta stay loyal to your friends that helped you from the beginning. Just saying, hopefully Ryan clears up whatever happened.

this comment didnt make choose to not support them anymore. ive been getting the feeling that ripndip fell off or a while now. Dont just assume that people feel this way because of what grant said (eventhough it is pretty upsetting), because assuming that would be very foolish. dont get me wrong i think ryan is is awesome ive met him before and hes a really chill guy, but he just needs to get his stuff figured out and be more original.

just restock wolf button up plz
September 10, 2012 @ 22:23:29
The brand isn't what it used to be, I agree. I personally thought it started to get a little bit lame after like the 30th nermal restock and the price jumps. Grant is pretty much the reason I started backing this too. I don't think ripndip has fallen off completely though.

I know you guys are saying how Ryan is a bad guy and everything, but I just got my nermal cap and hated the way it felt. I guess I got one from an old release or something recently. I emailed the company and got an email back from Ryan personally within an hour of sending the email. He seemed very concerned that I wasn't satisfied with the product so he sent out one of the caps made from supreme's manufacturer just without the logo on it. Quick and easy replacement of logo for me. I have nothing bad to say about this Ryan guy.
September 11, 2012 @ 04:54:38
I don't know where to stand on this, I remember when the first nermal and wolf drop happened I asked for a promo on twitter and Ryan hooked it up with free shipping . That was months ago though.

Free country? I should fuck you up for saying that

September 11, 2012 @ 05:00:55
@jacobpratt Id have to say your hella lucky then, I emailed them about my nermal cap being to small and asked for an exchange or whatever is possible. All they said are all sales are final LOL.
September 11, 2012 @ 05:01:54
Well.. I did have a bit of an aggressive email sent to him..
September 11, 2012 @ 05:07:29
But don't go thinking that's a good idea.. I emailed right as the hat came in the mail.
September 11, 2012 @ 07:27:53
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..
September 11, 2012 @ 18:12:25
@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.
September 11, 2012 @ 18:16:33
@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.

thats really upsetting then because both the nermals ive purchased in the past were great. sorry to hear it. hope it works out for you......... and for RipnDip in the future.

Funny to see them gain a popularity
And I see why..... kitten hats

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.
September 17, 2012 @ 05:03:15
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
September 17, 2012 @ 06:08:27
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.
