ehh theyd prob ask an employee wholl say ish out of his @$#
i remeber once when i went there and the employees kept trying to push me to buy some supras and told me to check out theyre nike SBs when they sell 6.0s.....
i guess i was trying to say, most people who go to zumiez go to get something that they already know is there you know?
diamond and co, obey, dc, dgk, etc..
in my estimation, especially in the world today, it seems as though its gonna take alot more for a person to really take a chance on rocking a particular clothing brand w/o doing research and/or getting peer approval.
For me, what really caught my eye and made me pay attention was the Bear Mop logo. Its a simple line drawing, but its done w/ a graff twist.
Being a graff nut and then realizing that mishka, like myself, were driven by alot of the same ideals/interests, i was sold.
For me, its like finding that song, or what poem, or that.. whatever, that really speaks to you and really truly embodies some/all aspects of yourself.
I think on a subconscious level too that some of us who dont want Mishka to "fall into the wrong hands" feel as though this brand is OURS, because we "Feel" it to a certain degree.. ya dig?
end rant, and feel free to let me know if NONE of this hits the target, but i think it makes sense. Then again, it could be the guinness talking ;)
