Hardly, theres a massive difference between 'stocking' and 'sourcing'...a shop which sells a handful of items at select periods does not count as a stockist...you couldnt walk in there at 11 on a thursday and expect to find the latest releases. The stockists are supreme stores (as shown on the website), where they outsource is completely irrelevant to anyone who expects the latest as they will only handle a handful of items a season
You're wrong, but anyway in turn your basically saying if a shop doesn't stock every single garment from said season then they don't actually 'stock' said brand ?
Yeah as i said before...i could think of a handful of stores in England that 'stock' supreme, but the items are few and far between..its a source not a stockist. Bottom line is if you want a specific item the most likely stockist is the shop itself because the other shops have pretty much no access to the items. Thats why supreme isnt your everyday brand, or it would be stocked in skate shops and not be limited in the slightest...if it was easy to get hold of from numerous shops there wouldnt be this much hype
I completely agree that if you want something specific then your best bet is heading to the store! Supreme London is the only place that stocks Supreme in Britain now. HIP Leeds and The Hideout were removed as stockists when it opened.
I understand what you are saying, i used to go to hideout and pick up supreme when it was impossible to get ahold of and even then they had max 4 t-shirts and the odd sweater. I just dont count a shop that has like 5 items every 6 months a stockist but there you go
