As a person who makes clothes I feel compelled to come to their defense. It doesn't seem like a mistake on Ronin's end simply looking at the specs of the shirt. It's a split tee with white ink (plastisol im guessing) so theres no way it can stain itself. Plastisol ink will usually just crack if it's improperly cured. I doubt that the black part of the tee bled out unless it was dyed but that doesnt seem to be the case. 

In any case thats unfortunate that happened to your shirt. If I were to guess I think it's detergent being applied directly to the garment which is why I put my "beater" clothes on top in the laundry when I put the soap in. Or it could be something else in your laundry load that bled out

appreciate the defense fam smokeyface

We washed our two tone sample before the drop to test the quality and it came out without any discoloration. Like Hidden Characters said, it might of been the detergent.

Sucks that this happened though.
what size did you get? If it's a small I can exchange it for a new one.

Did you wash it with any other clothes with those colors? It looks like another article of clothing bled out and stained it.


Also, a Til Death hoodie in the olive color way would've been so dope, that would be an instacop.

phillip lim x target months ago before the ronin treatment

its not like target was the first company to make a split t-shirt
Yes but we would have expected more from a Brand that we believe has a lot of potential. When you see collections released with some of the coolest designs you've become attracted to, to collections that look like recycled stuff you've seen other brands been doing for awhile - it's get's a little aggravating - you buy into a brand like an investment, I personally buy into small indie brands because I like what they are doing, I support what they are doing and hope my funds go to the continuation of cool stuff - and I really wish Ronin stepped up their creativity for this last season as it seemed as if the brand almost took a step backwards, rather than forwards.


All I'm saying is S/S 14 Better have some serious heat like last year. There are big hopes for Ronin's next season.
o yea color swap of supreme then

i agree this brand is about to off itself before it even has a chance to get big

its true that split t shirt black/white has been done by literally every company already....yall blindly dickride ronin not realizing they are becoming just like every other brand..which is straight up ripping off current trends.....

for what its worth that target philip lim split t is a lot nicer/cleaner and less expensive

hopefully you are. not meant to insult. and hopefully, if their actions have spoken and been heard similarly, theyre both creative enough to make something worth the cop.

Are you high? Both draw influences from video games and anime, both aren't afraid to do what they want in terms of designs. I think they are perfect for each other and will instacop the collab.

I honestly feel like Ronin is beginning to sell out. Been with this brand since the beginning. I hope they have good shit this year
Jan 18, 2014 @ 18:03
^what makes you say that?

to me, selling out means we lost integrity of the brand and started selling at karmaloop or UO

if we're all on a similar page, we mean "selling out" as in your design.
look at your recent line. its almost too clear that the text, "RONIN," is the main focus of most of the pieces. the designs are decent, but nothing different than what we've seen in the past. yes, this is being almost overly critical, but its because your brand is on the pedestal, for a good reason at that, and people are starting to see the telltale signs of letting the popularity get to your head. in my opinion, the only noteworthy piece is the parka. that was fire.

do something different than the past. show some more passion. no one gives a shit about how well you can argue about how youre not selling out or how we're all over reacting to one occurrence. show us.
this brand is ill. dont become a lil wayne.

I've always thought ronin was like triumvir. little brand that started off online that blew up into a local cult, almost. 

triumvir started off with their gimmicky sneaker designs, then moved onto the core image of the brand - the roman/military/historically inspired themes. And each collection they'd have like two or three pieces directly dedicated to that theme, but then they'd just release other cool graphics.

I think the samurai stuff is getting overplayed. Cut n Sew like the split tee was definitely a good decision and a good direction to go in. I didn't like the font on the back though.

My favorite pieces have been the wolf tee from the OG drop, and the levitation tee.
