[Ronin] – 2012 Official Discussion Thread

September 10, 2012 @ 00:01:01
I haven't copped anything from Ronin yet, been meaning to but haven't gotten around to it, but I get what Jarvis is trying to say, I am sure they will begin to express their own personality and ideas more and more through each drop as they find their footing.

Also just by reading through this thread, their customer service seems to be on point, it seems they genuinely care about customer satisfaction and that's a lot more than I can say about some of the other brands when I shop around.

So best of luck Ronin and I look forward to seeing some of your more unique designs in the future.

everything and anything can be used as an inspiration.


yea, but to what degree? they have a few pieces that blatantly resemble other brand's designs. this doesn't change the fact that it's dope and ill still wear the stuff i ordered when it gets here, but i definitely lost some respect for them.

^^ Yeah it is definitely a little disappointing but honestly I would just wait until later drops and if we see the influences from other brands receding than more power to them and they have truly grown. If we see a continuous cycle then we know to walk away.

But as of right now although a bit disappointed I would say they implemented the designs pretty well and at times better. Because us versus them gets pretty tacky sometimes and I would rather wear the design by Ronin than us versus them

i agree, im still planning on following them. from what ive seen they're pretty chill dudes and i want them to succeed. i just hope the next seasons to come they come up with more original designs and prove us wrong.

valid.

i just don't want to be looked on as someone representing a brand that bites other designs, all of which i didn't even realize until now.... jarvis if u do happen to do the same, could you at least be open about it? u didn't think that this would never happen, did u? keep up with customer service, cause that's what is bringing me back

As I said in my previous post, we created Ronin as a side project, nothing big. we did not anticipate for it to become of anything.

for the record we did not take anything from Us Versus Them. the Highlanders tee was created entirely on it's own. something as generic as crossed swords and saying we took from them, I'm starting to feel thats going too far.

I have been nothing but honest when confronted about our brand, and have always held our customers in the highest regard. I don't get how thats not being open. This will be the last I will be posting about this.

Thanks
Jarvis

i'll take your word for it but as i've said, i noticed the similarities pretty early on, but thought nothing of it. i only brought it up when other questionable design resemblances came to light.. im sorry but you can't blame me either

jarvis, you misunderstood.

Creating Ronin as a side project is aside from the point.

And look, did I ever claim that you weren't honest? No. What I meant by be open was before we make a purchase, give us a brief description on each design so we don't feel like we are hit in the back of the head if something like this were to happen again. If someone didn't post a pic of Squad tee and Cruel Hand, would we have ever known? No, and this may or may not be true, but that might have been what you were hoping for.

As for the Us Versus Them and the Highlanders, if it were just the crossed swords, ventura probably wouldn't have mentioned it. Every placement of the logo and whatnot, how can anyone not say they don't look awfully similar.

^ bruh bruh. maybe you should write that over to supreme too then.
and every other brand.

why is that bruh bruh?
September 10, 2012 @ 01:11:24
i always thought the highlanders tee reminded me of this us versus them tee too, but thought nothing of it before.. but now not so sure

its still dope, but my expectations are lowered now to say the least

are you serious? you act like Us Versus Them came up with the crossed swords thing.
This whole thing really isn't that serious at all lol
September 10, 2012 @ 01:15:09
@jarvis

easy one of the most unique brands on the forum.
not only is your brand so narrowed.
but it's almost narrowed to the perspective a specific person I can figure.

ive been on the forum for quite sometime and there's always that one guy that tries to ruin the brand and blow it out of proportion. ur that guy bruh.

To be honest, it's just clothes. How do you feel like you've been hit in the back of the head because of similar designs? Like you said yourself, if no one would have posted the Cruel Hand tee then it wouldn't have mattered anyways. If anything I would say that Ronin implemented the designs better than the originals. Also, it wasn't like they did a straight copy & paste; they took a design that they appreciated and crafted it in their own way. I don't see how there can be any disappointment.

ima keep posted for that hoodie restock. how much are they?
September 10, 2012 @ 02:27:06
^^ I think it was 50?? correct me if I am wrong
September 10, 2012 @ 02:27:13
@tokey

$50
September 10, 2012 @ 02:30:45
thanks. no wonder why they sold out so fast
September 10, 2012 @ 03:23:25
Can't you guys just enjoy the clothing? In the end, if you don't want it, just don't order it. No one on the street is going to point out a similar design, be real. It's clothes.
September 10, 2012 @ 03:52:10
if you guys dont want your "not so original clothes" send them my way

All my friends are black but my wives are white

picked up the kusunoki tee on the day of the drop. super impressed and the tee is dope. thanks guys.

Still selling shit. Got banned for not wanting to sell to some mod on this site lmao. PM Me for pics of what im selling.

September 10, 2012 @ 04:59:50
I had no intention of ruining the brand... I guess it all depends on how you take it. Obviously it wasn't just straight copy & paste but it was really similar and Ronin's personal take on it wasn't so apparent.

Damn, pretty disappointed in the quality of the Kusunoki tee.

Print is pretty off-center:


Anything you guys can do about this, Jarvis?

Highlanders tee is on point though.
