From dealing with BBC/Ice Cream products on a daily basis, IMO the quality of the products, specifically the t shirts, justifies the price. The shirts hold their form and design after multiple washes and the prints don't fade either.

We receive new product from them every 2-3 weeks and always have people calling and/or coming in to grab the items as soon as we get them out. Granted its not for everyone, but I can see why the people who are fans of the brand/label like it so much.

very true brudda.i was blown away by the people i used to help with bbc purchases at the store I used to work at.people all ages, sizes, shapes, race, etc..there were kids who saved all their allowances for weeks for that one tee, or sweatshirt, to older rich folks that were looking for some classier, newer, more cutting edge(no homo) shit.People always tended to be psyched on the quality of the clothes too.
Im hoping the footwear really comes around to make it a complete collection.

I really like that in the red also, it looks like a good fit when worn too

yeah, when I tried to order some stuff though they were sold out every time I tried so I have never actually ordered. So I don't know if they just go quick or they don't update their site when the stuff is gone or what.

Check out my sig though, we are starting to get the new stuff in too...

You can't pay through paypal via the phone, however we do accept all major forms of credit cards. Both stores get about the same products from BBC/Ice Cream however sometimes the DC location gets a few items the VA store doesn't. Its always best to call and ask to see what we have.

i used to feel bbc ice/cream a lot.got lots of items from the previous seasons.
but no more since i'm not really feeling most of the designs of the new season.
seems like they're just biting Polo Ralph Lauren and their lookbook looks like a Tommy Hilfiger lookbook shot on tennis fields and shit like that.
now this is not street at all and as far as lifestyle is concerned, this is not my lifestyle.
i'm a urban kid i dont fuck with tennis fields.
the enzo tee is maybe one of the worst i've seen in years btw.
plus i've seen the boardflips for sales at 10 euros (around 15$) in several footlockers here, and this is not exactly what i expect from what is supposed to be a cool brand.
so sorry about that, hope they'll get back to some radical shit.

lol, big daddy.

I don't even like the name "streetwear", but I don't think that BBC is in the same category as everything else in this section anyway.

I think the opposite, for the clothing. I used to think they were doing too much, or trying too hard before when they used to do those gaudy designs. Now that they've cleaned up their designs, they seem to be a more upscale brand. It's like a coming of age in my opinion.

he had a fully valid point and all u did was make a retarded response. stop dickriding bbc/ice cream


retarded response? No, he is pissed that the BBC is progressing as a brand and moving away from the "urban" feel that they were. I have heard so many times that the new BBC line is just jacking RL and its ridiculous. So the brand is getting a more grown feel to it so it appeals to more people and a few people are mad because it doesn't have a metallic shine and make them stand out as much.

At least I had a response, if you don't have anything to contribute to the thread then why the fuck are you posting in it.
