^I would have done nothing different, Bape lasted a long time and is still popular in Asia. However nothing last forever. I'm sure Nigo has been ready to move on for quite some time.

Bape wasn't or isn't just a trend. It has quality clothing. The "hype" has died down from where it once was because of all the counterfeits they had. Also more street wear brands came along with a lot more reasonable prices. Bape is really expensive. $90 for a graphic T-shirt is bull shit.


word. Bape never lost any popularity, the hype just died down for it. That goes for every brand. It sells very well. Most people don't care about the "hype", they buy something because they like it.

I would never drop $100 on a tshirt or $200 for a hoodie. Shit is so ridiculous, only rich asian people buy it.

Simple.

They're high end, reaching a small demographic of those available in affording authentic Bathing Ape items. Only a small percentage of the world population are wealthy which is why the majority of us will just stick to buying other Streetwear brands even though our interests lay towards Bape. I guarantee if prices decreased to The Hundreds level for example, purchases would rise hella craze! But then again would get played out like Urban. Thats another story though lol

I respect Nigo, he's ma chigga.

i agree with this. If Nigo was to lower his prices he would see more income in his apparel. But I don't think the hype would rise, for the simple fact most kids are into what is the hype and what celebs are wearing, and not many rappers are wearing bape other than pharrell and asap. I love what Nigo did with streetwear but he needs to understand these prices are ridiculous. I still cop bape but only about once or twice every 2 months. Also his book; BAPE ARCHIVES BY NIGO is a great pickup if you wanna know the history behind the brand.
