Heya. Anyone willing to do a supreme pickup for me? id pay good. PM me if anyone is interested.

i think the reason why Supreme is opening more stores in Japan is because it's cheaper to lease a store front over there. think about how much it would cost Supreme to open 3 additional stores in the states. it's a good look for the Supreme, but im not surprised others feel pissed about the whole idea. shoot, we don't even have a Supreme store in SF and we're supposedly the mecca of skaters back in the days.

You know rent in Japan is pretty expensive right? The cost of living in Japan is higher than the cost of living in the US. I guess the good thing about opening stores in Japan is that they can charge a lot more. Tees there retail for about $60.

I would have to agree with you on that!


Wu-Dynasty, Im pretty much positive a store front in JP is not even close in numbers as far as a lease goes compared to a SF or NY!

I ordered the grey version of that backpack from the online shop. I can't remember for sure, but I'm pretty sure like everything else I've got from the online store my backpack didn't come with any Supreme tags.

i doubt a prime real estate in japan have the same cost as a prime real estate in the US.
Sep 22, 2008 @ 19:39
if you're talking about price per square foot, nothing in the US compares to central tokyo. If you're talking total cost of the estate, Dubai has the most pricey real estate.

so the backpack was for sale online and the tag on the inside should say made in china correct?
Sep 22, 2008 @ 22:14
NY Update - I walked in for a glimpse. Still no Mont Blanc Hoodies or Caps.

I saw the Supreme Master Locks in stock.

the backpack was on sale online, I think it was either the first or second online drops. I tried looking in my bag for a tag but, I couldn't find one. I might just not be looking in the right places.
Sep 23, 2008 @ 00:09
^^thanks scoober btw how does the rest of the bag compare to yours
would you say legit or not legit
Sep 23, 2008 @ 00:23
^ I can't be 100% since I'm not really an expert but, since its not the same color, but it does look pretty good to me. The straps and everything seems to be in the right place. Make sure that the buckles (I think thats what they are called) are metal.
If you want to be sure you may want to look for someone on this board or another board with the green version to check on the pink zipper. I think that pic shows the inside zipper on mine the inside is black and the zipper is black too, but mine is the grey and teal version.
Sep 23, 2008 @ 00:28
the buckles on the bag are metal sorry for being so difficult guys just trying to make sure of legitimency before i purchase
he also has feedback before for selling authentic supreme merchandise and he has a kermit deck for sale right now
Sep 23, 2008 @ 00:40
^ no problem, I wish I could help you more. Maybe the guys at strictlysupreme.com might have some input.
Sep 23, 2008 @ 03:21
one of the easiest ways to find out if one of the later supreme bags are real is to check out the plastic clip buckles. they should have embossed writing on it. i know my 24th backpack and waistbag that were made in China have this. they say something like washuan industries or something that indicates where the buckles were made, i'll check to make sure when i get home.
Sep 23, 2008 @ 14:24

anyone know when the trail caps drop?
Sep 23, 2008 @ 15:59
thanks hot sriracha,, it just arrived,, and everything looks good!!
