That's what i noticed too but people have complained before but they refuse to change it because just it's "soft."
btw, they do use AAA just not the same model as most brands.
Look, Ronin, im a fan. But as a fan, im gonna say how I feel. You guys need to really start using the model of AAA that other brands use. Im not saying this because other brands use it. Im saying this because that's the best model out there. It's thicker, sizing fits a little better and the collar area is tighter so it wont stretch out easier. I know many people are gonna thumbs me down just because they dont want to see any criticism. But im saying this to help you guys out, seriously. Theres a reason why most streetwear brands use the same AAA model. Its because it the best model. Supreme doesnt use AAA so I dont even buy their tees cause their sizing is garbage.
As a supporter of ronin, please consider this. How about for the Spring drop you guys use the thicker model of the AAA and test it out? See how us, the supporters/consumers, like it.

Again, please consider. I guarantee you this will only help your brand.

It is legal because I wish it.

Yes, some people have complained before and its not that we refuse to change it. It was just that we could not allow a few complaints on this thread to dictate the rest of our customer's opinions. We've had valid reasons as to why we kept it as Alstyle 1701, such as it's softness, overall fit, bagginess, and collar thickness. All of these things we've considered in comparison with the other thicker alternative, the Alstyle 1301. But of course we understand that just because we think the 1701 is better, doesn't mean you guys think so as well.

We've never restricted you guys from telling us how you feel, we in fact encourage that. Otherwise we won't be able to grow as a brand. The mistakes and criticisms directed at us are all taken into serious consideration for us to deliver better products to you guys.

Let me break it down for everyone here about this "AAA Model" thing. This is a new account because I cant log into my old one after all this HB renovation. been a member here since 07. Shit, i was here when Ron had fucking hair. I lurk here (fashion brand) every now and then and there are a few brands that impress me that i buy from. Now...

First, Ronin is a strong brand. They made their name and has a strong reputation even outside of HB.
Their shit sells out QUICKLY as we already seen. (But that does not mean they dont have room for improvement)
Now obviously, even though their inspired by anime, it's still a street wear brand. Just look at yoon. This nigga been here for years so he knows whats up with the street culture (shouts out to my nigga yoon.). Im sure many of us do since we're on HB. Shit, i been on this streetwear since people knew about nigo and when stussy was THAT BRAND that basically paved a way for streetwear. HB is a small % when it comes to Ronin. But I think thats what makes it important. Thats what separates "us" from "them."
its cause we know this street culture shit. we been on it. we seen street culture grow and evolve. we seen what works and what doesnt. im not saying the tees ronin currently use is bad, but its what "WE" arent used to. we're used to thick tees cause thats what streetwear been on for YEARS. But like that niggga above said, theres a reason why all these streetbrands use the same model... its cause its the BEST for US. I personally didn't like the thin tees cause honestly, it was just thin and felt.... cheap (wrong use of word but you know what i mean) what im sayin is, i think HB should be a voice that should be listened to rather than outsiders. ITS CAUSE WE LIVE ON THIS STREETWEAR SHIT.

My personal critique may be the minority on this forum. My personal favorite blanks are the ones Triumvir uses. They're soft, slim, and longer than most. I feel like that's the perfect fit. Perhaps the spring or even summer blanks can be something of this sort? Thumb me down, it's just my personal opinion. Been rocking Ronin since day 1. Literally.

Veni Vidi Vici - So have I my man. Been with them ever since the Hellhounds tee. I was actually the first to mention switching tees because I knew it would be a problem. What I suggest is Ronin use the thicker model for the spring drop and see how we like it. Theyll never know unless they try. Plus we clearly see by the votes that people want the thicker tees. All I'm saying is that it won't hurt to try. The tees are the only thing holding Ronin back for me honestly. Even small brands like Divinities, DPI and Sequence use the thicker tees.

Good point. I'm torn 50/50 between the soft and thicker tees. I personally don't like thicker neck tee's. I have an OG supreme tee from like 06 which has a really tight neck, while tee's from this season are perfect and wide at the neck. Not like I'm fat either. Divinities uses awesome blanks though. I'd be down for Ronin to print on something like that.

I def feel you man but Supreme doesn't use AAA. They use some other brand that I don't know.
The one we're talking about are the ones brands like The Hundreds, Divinities, and other brands use.

Jarvis, I think the votes show what the people want. Any conclusions?

I've never had a Ronin tee except the pred l/s, but are the fits of the tees the same, just the thickness is different? (I'm talking about the type ronin uses now and the one everyone wants them to switch to)

i was fearing that. i can see why jarvis and yoon don't favor a change. the fit on those thicker tees and the collar isn't for me but it looks like im in the minority

That's the problem though. Jarvis and Yoon are catering to the minority. Now, it's clear that people want the thicker tees. Not only that, you guys been having your thin tees for the past 3 drops while we (the people who dont like the thin tees) had to deal with it. And even with the thin tees we still supported Ronin. I think it's time for us to have a chance which is why the Spring drops needs to be released with the thicker style tees. The votes clearly show what the people want.

The Spring drops needs to be on the thicker tees. And please, no "Thin tees for the Spring drop then we'll use thick tees for the drop after that." We waited long enough fam. #THICKNESS WE IN DIS.

The "people" you're referring too only encompass people that's been on this thread over the past 12 hours. 
And I would assume that most who view this thread constantly are people who are unhappy or have complaints.

Imo, I'm happy with their current blanks.

The people are also the people who doesnt wants them to change. But would you even mind if Ronin does make the switch?
