My bad.

With fashion unfortunately sometimes you have to make a compromise to keep doing what you love.

A true selling out would be like... Naked & Famous in Urban Outfitters and shipping production to China. You expect N&F but you get shit quality and pay a high price. At least with Brandon's Unbranded brand, you know exactly what you're getting.

edit - Huf @ Karmaloop is no biggie. As long as quality stays the same.


Learn a thing or two about fashion son....go through your stock and tell me what ISNT made in China or another third world country! Very little is made in America and their is plenty of reasons for that but I would have to type a 10 page paper to explain why.

You can sell what you love without being a lame ass store you just have to pick and choose your brands wisely and not become another "streetwear" store that sells the same thing every other store does. Tell me what you got that is exclusive to you and you only?

Oh wait NOTHING.....actually build with a brand. Brands right now have no loyalty to no one because they care about money and staying alive rather then building their brand on solid ground and picking and choosing real stores and not one per every 10 miles, more like 10 per every continent IF even that.

Not all brands. Some brands honestly value their customers more then money. Sometimes the feeling of having a community of people who actually respect the brand & know what they stand for is more important than making as much money & just throwing shit out there for people to wear.

But really I wouldn't say selling to Karmaloop is selling out though.

Haha but yes it is something to be proud of to get attention. Why people would call them a sell out? I don't know. Just cause they got their brand on tv or on the radio doesn't mean they're a sell out. Jealousy perhaps?


I can agree on some level but you are a little off the mark.

It's more like brands value actually good product and real quality, real materials, real tailors, real custom fabrics and I mean REAL quality and then next is if the consumer values the product and guess what? When the price is high you will have less customers. It's the trade off but if you do it right you can make great product, have longevity in your brand AND make money but you wont be selling 30 dollar tee shirts, 80 dollar jeans and 80 dollars hoodies thats for sure.

You think Visvim, Acronym, Engineered Garments, Garbstore, W&H's, Reigning Champ, White Mountaineering, Bedwin, Deluxe, Neighborhood, Wtaps, Common Projects, and 50 other brands I could list would sell to the likes of a standard streetwear store or KL for that matter? Fuck no. Thats like being a Bentley/Daewoo dealership. You think Bentley would sell to you when you told them you were a Daewoo dealer or that you wanted to share your Daewoo dealer lot with your possible Bentley dealership next door?

People would look at you like you are stupid...it's a bad look man, bad look.

Lol honestly, I don't go to the city much but the popular tourist destination seem to be:

The Bean
Sears Tower Sky Deck
Magnificent Mile
State St.
Museums
Navy Pier

None of those you probably won't be interested in, lol.

If you want to fade get APCs, I think they're about $165 now, so its just right at your budget. N&F are awesome quality for denim but if you want fading they're not the ones to go too since you can't find deep indigos no more.

I saw a WDYWTD of you once & you seem like a mad skinny dude so you can probably cop a pair of APC NC or PS. N&F Weirdguys would look dope. Best way is to just go to Untitled talk to UNCMN & he'll see what's up.

Anyone here can honestly help you out.

Nudie Thin Finns, Obey Juvee, and the Cheap Monday Staffboy would all be good cuts as well. We got a pair of Skinny Guys from Naked & Famous that I think would work.

All depends on what you want.
