[Quote] It's in full effect in every city on the East Coast. Dont know abt the West Coast though....usually they are years behind in trends. I think the whole thing just didnt pop up suddenly - it gradually grew into the minds of people starting with wearing tight jeans like ksubi, then the popularity of the neon Supre and Cotton On tees for girls and then it spreaded like a wild fire.....

The problem with us is that our geographic location is limiting the stuff we get over here and the time it get's delivered. The UNDFTD x WTaps stuff came out 2 mths ago and we only just recieved it in December. And thanks the the Customs, it takes much longer just to clear some stuff out quickly. Cant really blame Supply, FreshIn and anotherinch getting stuff late coz hey, at least we have them here. UNDFTD is pretty much everywhere in Sydney. Even some of my mates who arn't that deep into streetwear are rocking it, just becoz SP1 had it on sale a while ago. For those who doesn't know much, they will think it's a good brand but to us, we're over it ages ago. Neighborhood ain't that huge anymore in Japan. People only clean out the stores to resell it in the consignment shops or get it sent overseas to places like HK and South East Asia where demand for NBHD is still pretty high. Streetwear and street culture in general has peaked 2 years ago, and they're starting to slow down and go back to the level in 1999 before this who ura-harajuku craze started. Thats pretty much why Neighborhood, W)Taps, Nexus VII, Unrivaled, Devilock and Visvim are starting to expand into the global market by working and releasing stuff overseas coz they know it doesn't appeal to the Japanese anymore. The current favourite of mine would be FHI (Futura Heavy Industries), a collaboration between Maharishi and Futura. Really well constructed, designed and pretty rare too. Another favourite would be Chapel of Dawn from HK by the guys at SiLLY THING - really like the construction of the shirt and the soft cotton they used. Also i'm starting to buy alot of European stuff - just laid my hands on a few pieces by Maison Martin Margiela, Topman and H&M. Im still pretty big on Supreme, Visvim, Head Porter, Stussy and just abt any brand that HF put's his golden touch on..... I get most of the stuff locally since I can get hooked up by pretty much all the stores in Sydney, they would put the stuff aside for me so I dont need to go through the hassle of waiting in line in the early morning of the launch day and to find out the guy in front bought the last one. If it's something I know none of the stores would stock, then I would check where else would they release it around the world and see if I have any contacts there. If yes, i'll get someone down to cop it but if not, then i'll either resort to eBay or online shops.

[Quote] No matter who produced it or how well it is produced, it's still FLURO, and thats where the problem really lies. But I guess if it's from a really respected brand (eg: Ksubi), people may accept it easier since they could just say "these are made by xxx....they are not stevie!" but deep down they still look pretty much like shit....just that their shit is more expensive. each to it's own I guess.

Well what's your definition of 'cheapish'? Give us a budget. SP1 has a range of quality denim, from cheapish Lee and Wrangler (probably less than $200) to the more expensive Levi's Vintage Clothing (LVC) and Edwin (starting at about $250 and could go upto $400-500). [another]" also has LVC, as well as the Australian-operated Imperial Denim, which are made in Queensland using quality Japanese denim. Also they have the WESC (WeAreTheSuperlativeConspiracy) jeans from Europe as well. Imperial's starts at around $270 and im not too sure about the rest.... APC, Nudie, Ksubi and Paper Denim are probably pretty expensive to the average Joe who goes to uni so they wont get a mention....but if you really do want to save up, then Jeans West and other good fashion store would stock normal/generic Levi's 501 etc, also Mooks and Mossimo woulod probably have something that fits your budget and wallet.....

[Quote] same. cant believe these people are now the 'face' of Australia fashion. this thread is now tainted by the ugliness of their fluro colour t-shirts and mullet haircuts.

[Quote] FreshIn would actually be a pretty good place to sell your brand since Nick has a pretty good eye catching out niche brands and bringing them into the country. I still remember the good ol' days where General Pants would pick up indie brands and give them product placements in their catalogs and front window display. Guess it ain't happening anymore. People are saying to support the locals....but then we don't even have a medium to do so. Contradicting isn't it? And speaking of Ritchie, I need to catch up with him on something i'm planning to bring into the country too...

[Quote] Remember, we're the minority and they are the ones out in droves wearing the same thing, and since 99% of the bouncers doesnt know anything, of course he would let them in and kick us out! But keep in mind we need more of them to make us special blushing

[Quote] well it's not that bad for me at least. Im really down with the way we do things in Sydney (all relaxed and shit) but then I had no problems getting used to work in HK for 2 mths prior to coming back. I dont see Naked Pimp having any problems as well tongueface

[Quote] You cant be pissed with them, they're only wearing it coz it's 'HOT', not becoz they purely appriciate the graphics, or they know the history of Bape or even anything about the brand at all besides seeing Pharrell rocking them on MTV. They're not into the culture like we do. When I see people like that, I just shrug and feel sorry for them. But if I see someone who 'claims' they like street fashion and rocks Fape, then i'll probably say something.

[Quote] Is there a website for your brand coz honestly, I haven't heard about it before |0 PREVIEW PLEASE! Luckily I generally pick things to wear that doesnt go dated as the years go by coz i'll be really broke if I need to chase wot all the brands are producing every season over in Europe/US....
