yo, no way dude camping this AM would have left sometime this week between when he got there this AM and on Saturday.no way..not at all..not a chance..not even close.. I'd put money on the fact that he'd have chilled the WHOLE time. last year, I was working at concepts right around this time of year, (may/june) and the first lobsters were dropping then. there was cats lining up the Wednesday before the shoes dropped; so, today's instance isn't all that far fetched. PLUS, as of 6/7 PM tonight, there's about 10 or 12 people straight posted up outside concepts right now..haha.. I mean, don't get me wrong, I used to have to wait for shoes. I hit the old tannery/concepts at like 4/5AM to scoop the first J-Rod's and the Tiffany dunks. got hit over the head for the cost of the kicks (that had to be paid in cash) but loved every second of it. I remember being so stoked on the Tiff's.. hah, SMH at me.. at that stage of your sneaker liking, shit like that is fun. I grew up wearing a lot of heat (thanks Pops,) but at one point, not too too long ago, everything changed and now, it's close to impossible to get any of the good stuff that they drop for box price.. I had to wait up for the DMP's too.. me and my man hit Champs on Wash St --downtown crossing the night before.. got there about midnight, twisted a few Ls, scooped the kicks at like 8/9AM when they opened, had to straight beef with about 25/30 cats in the immediate area to grab the index card (each card had a shoe size on it, so whoever got a card with a certain size on it, got that size,) almost got jacked walking back to the train with the HUGE gold boxes, hit the crib and slept for a week, haha..but me and my dude held it down. we hopped the turnstyles at Park Street station and the cops immediately stopped us...the dudes chasing us did the same exact thing trying to catch us, so it was not hard for the cops to see what was happening.. they let me and my man go and wrote the pack of goons tickets...LOL either way, my point is.. cats straight LOVE waiting in line. for some dudes, it's obviously worth it for them to chill outside a store for 24, 48, 72, 96, shit... I guess in this case, close to 110 hours to then pay 2 and a half bills on a pair of sneaks. at least, they've justified doing that in their head somehow, and if that's the conclusion they have come to, word up, let em rock with it, whatever. and for some cats, they have made the conscious decision that it is NOT worth their time to camp and chill outside a store to have to legit be posted in the same spot the whole time to hold the spot down for a night, two nights, three nights, damn...four nights. dudes straight camped out for some SB's for a straight crazy long weekend's worth of time, right?. a normal long weekend would be either Monday OR Friday off in addition to sat. and sun. obviously. these cats waiting from Tuesday morning to Saturday afternoon, pretty much 5 days and 4 nights (like a hot damn cruise ship advertisement..) shit is crazy, yo..but for real, good job to the fam over at concepts... THIS IS WHAT THE FUCK IS UP RIGHT HERE... straight holding it down... be on the lookout for some possible new NB collabs also. T've only heard a rumor, but I heard there was some heat on the way... we'll just have to wait and see now won't we...? blushing

[B]thongstealer[/B] [Quote] what if dude lives in boston? and you're wylin if you would trust any random tailor to tailor your clothing. i can reccomend, Newbury Tailoring. I think it's 91 Newbury, or right around there. kinda towards Arlington st. as opposed to the Mass Ave end. they are kinda expensive, but they do a very good job.

e money, e money, emoney, SMH once again.... first of all, as i said, MAYBE the newbury st location... but you gotta remember, in kangs history, that newbury st location aka kangs pop up store was just tiny tiny tiny tiny piece of... "Kangs" the gainsborough was open LONG before, will remain open LONG after and has always waaay more and waaay better of a selection. the newbury street MAY have had the particular grits you were looking for and DEFINITELY did NOT have the L you had been searching for either... at gainsborough, not only do they have EXACTLY what you were looking for, but they also have an abundance of it, AND for way cheaper than you are going to find it elsewhere... so.... kangs gainsborough > kangs newbury in any and all senses/ways/fashions/forms.... all around... matta fact, im glad the newbury one closed.. it was giving Sir Kang a bad name. smokeyface

rip kangs? NAH... maybe the newbury St location, but the last time I was at the Gainsborough location, it was business as usual.. SMH E MONEY, I expect more from you.. BUT, kangs doesnt really sell all that "head shop" stuff.. they got hella Ls and all that, but for pieces and stuff, they dont have it. sugar daddys is cool, stuff is marked pricey, but if you go with cash, the herbs will definitely work with you on the #'s. but who needs all that? hit the local 7-11, scoop a swish for $.69, and youre good to. smokeyface

drifter, how are you not hating? it sounds like that is exactly what you are doing. it is fine with me, i couldnt care less what you hate on or dont hate on on this forum, but do not say you aren't doing something that you blatantly are... and i think he might take offense to: [Quote] and you can say that you are just stating your opinion, and not hating, or whatever... but even if that is JUST your opinion, youre still hating.. but this is an internet forum, no one said you cant hate here... so do your thing.. but i can see why he might take offense to that. "screams knock offs?" that could make a store owner heated. not only did you hate on the shoe, a product which his store is selling, but you also said they..."scream knock offs" i could see a store owner getting mad at that. and yo, drifter, i hope this does not warrant a really brash response from you, sir. i know you take a lot of this internet stuff personally, so let me be the first to say... don't. its not that serious.

those 670s were from a friend with a UK NB connect... they are fire... probably impossible to cop these days.. what size you wear? they are DS, maybe we can work something out. also, i know this is a new era thread, but i mostly see dudes matching or trying to match their fitteds with nikes... dont be afraid to match with other brands yall... NB got some HEAT, trust.
