I personally haven't bought a single piece of bape since 1999, but you still can't help but admire what Nigo has achieved over the years regardless of what some people say or think.

bape has gone downhill

i see all the emo kids and goth kids in that baby milo jacket... with the camo
January 12, 2009 @ 21:14:18
agreed i dont think the quality of bape has declined but it hurts to see emo kids rocking it / the blatant fapes
January 12, 2009 @ 21:48:49
i'm gona agree with you guys. i think the quality of BAPE has continued to get better and better but it has lost its mystique and rare appeal. I'm sure Nigo is well aware of this but its hard to change that up completely when he is making money hand over fist

get your normal size they fit a little smaller than american companys do but not enough to go up a size. if youve worn bape or bbc before they crews run just like the ts do

I personally love bape. I've been admiring the brand since I was 12, and now that I'm 20, I've been able to establish a pretty good collection. I just purchased the blue fire camo from the spring 09 collection. I can't wait for it. Although, some of the things they produce is a little off the chart in a bad way, you can't help to see that Nigo is trying to make his brand more innovative than it already is. I give props to him and to his success.

09 woodland camo sharks retail at 322 plus NY state tax which comes out to abt 351
January 16, 2009 @ 13:36:29
No way it's 270.
January 16, 2009 @ 15:58:56
i heard it was 317 at bws ny and la and are sellin for 495 on cliffedge. but i think the way to tell the price from the website is like times it by .0119 or something like that not just convert it, i saw something like that on bapetalk a wile back. but if you really want to sell it you should look at bapetalk or bapetalk2 but you gotta have 100+ posts to sell there. And you are definatly ganna take a loss

Yup thats what happened to me I wore BAPE before all the kids started watching TV trying to immitate with some bootlegs then I stopped for that same reason and now that its not around as much im back on to my ol' Love.
January 16, 2009 @ 16:28:06
about a year ago, i saw 12 yr old kids wear bootleg bape on the bus. it was then when i sold my bape/bbc pieces. now the same kids are all over the hundreds. i think its time to move on to another brand....haha

but i give respect to nigo for building his dynasty in japan/usa. the guys opening cafe's and shit all over japan. i almost waited in line for his book signing in LA a couple months ago.

they just closed the cafe
January 16, 2009 @ 16:45:24
yeh. not doing as well as it was in the past.

I might go to the la store soon, maybe pick up a polo or a shirt. Nothing loud though. Since it's dying down again, I'd be happier to wear it.

haha....i guess bapes going downhill then.

anyways, i heard someone said that lil wayne killed bape. i somewhat agree.
