Its simply the people who buy it, I mean Shepard's art use to be good and still is, but its all the people who like it, now days you can really like something and know everything about it and still be called a hipster, its fucking retarted.

Every kid who wants to be "hypebeast" is wearing it now. Plus, it isn't unique at all, you can go to your local mall and find it without any problem.

Very stupid box logos and shit, they can't pull off box logos and they're political message doesn't appeal to me, also to much "I have swag fags" (yea right) wear it. In recent times diamond has become the same, two years back I would be the only dude wearing a diamond SnapBack in my city. (a little exaggerated but you know what I mean)

damn, i'm good.

That has nothing to do with uniqueness. Unique means one of a kind. You're talking about exclusiveness.

I'm also not to keen on wearing something everybody else is wearing you know? I like wearing something a lot of people won't wear like a zebra print button up, a tie dye shirt, a postal stamp aloha shirt, or a trench coat and a supreme beanie.

damn, i'm good.

Shit is corny as fuck , its what all high school kids trying to have " swag " rape , plus their designs aint shit . All the stuff they drop now is so weak.

The people that rock it now are just killing the brand basically . You can see it on tumblr everywhere lol .

i dont like the fact that kids can walk into their local zumiez, pick up an obey snap and a diamond shirt and call it swag

it diminishes the integrity of what i believe streetwear is supposed to be.


streetwear has moved on from those brands, get with it nikka

Never was a friend of this brand from the get go. Always hear bad things about them but I have some proof. Girlfriend dragged me into Zumiez and saw an Obey 3/4 sleeve raglan (Alstyle blank). You could still see a piece of their old tag and their own label wasn't even on the center of the shirt it was off to the left. I understand they have such a big production but really though? Looked like shit.

Not a big fan of obey , but in reply to this why does age matter again? What if i bought a kid a 'supreme' hat ? you stop buying supreme ? probably not because its still 'cool'

The only Diamond shirt I had was when they were strictly a hardware brand. Mostly every brand that started as exclusive or "small" got big and opened up their accounts to be held in way too many places. I get it they want their money it makes sense, just feels like your brand loses it's quality and integrity. You won't catch me rocking something that some kid on the street could go to the mall and duplicate my fit. Luckily the brands I like have still remained outside of malls and outlet stores...

Obey been whack since way back. The fuck happen to ALIFE is the real question. ALIFE was real as fuck, had that box logo steeze(albeit borrowed from LIFE magazine and not Supreme). Alife usually had that nice, clean, simple aesthetic, something OBEY doesn't have in my eyes. Fairey is a hack, always has been.

Only problem with Obey is their recent designs have been rip offs.. I could give a fuck less if a lot of people wear it.

I don't like the brand because the guy who created it is a sell out. Plus it's too gay. The designs aren't bad, truthfully. I just don't like how kids always wear that shit for swag.

I have a pair of Obey pants and they're dope, but I never see anything else that I like and a bunch of herbs wear the snaps which is lame.

They are overplayed, overhyped, and Shephard Fairey is a douchebag.
