Never saw rainfrog camo windbreaker or the travel bags from the Holiday 2 preview on the site. The sweatpants went up around 4 EST

How do the sweatpants fit? I'm 5"5 160lb medium-esque built

Do yourself a favor and don't spend $100 on a pair of fucking sweatpants...
Edit: Don't worry, I know down votes are the same as thumbs up to a hypebeast.

Couldn't agree more with this honestly.
90 bucks plus shipping for a pair of sweatpants is fucking ridiculous.
There's pushing it, like a 38 dollar basic pocket tee, and then there's completely insane, like those sweatpants.

Then again, people are still scoopin that shit up, so I guess Nick doesn't give a shit about what we say.

Nick hasnt gave a shit about what we think since he sold out to zumiez and pacsun. I look up more to the guys who work at the diamond than nick cause atleast they do have something to do with us.
Nov 10, 2013 @ 23:45
98 for sweats seems a little more like max than insane. I'm surprised the rain camo go for more than the heaven and hell tho. But 180 for a cardigan is a little on the steep side.

I wouldn't say he sold out.
It's a business man.
He went for bigger and more money, just like any one else would.

However, I would say in doing that his designs have gone downhill and the creativity of the brand has been lacking, minus the exclusives that have been alright.

have you ever had a pair of their sweatpants? they arent your normal bullshit walmart sweatpants. These are quality. I have two pairs and absolutely love them. They are worth $100 no doubt.

Isn't the shirt matt8567 is wearing from zumiez? Lol
Nov 10, 2013 @ 23:56
You're not being forced to buy anything, if you like quality, which I'm guessing you don't. Then you would know diamond gives you what you pay for. As for selling out to Zumiez and pacsun, you're wrong they've been selling diamond for years, even before diamond blew up.

I know everyone will probably just hop on and say, "Here comes Tony justifying why they are 98 dollars...blah, blah blah." All of our prior sweatpants have been $88 and thats was just basic fleece, the rainfrog camo sweats are French Terry, full print sweats, made locally. Did anyone on here get a pair of the Heaven & Hell sweats? Did anyone notice the quality difference between those and our old sweats?

...and Nick is very well in tune with what's going on in this thread , he's always popping into my office asking me how the Hypebeast thread is going and what you guys are saying.

Zumiez sells most Diamond shit now, so even if he didn't get it from there, you could still cop it from Zumiez.
And I sure as hell would. I do that a lot actually. Saves me on shipping and Zumiez is 5 minutes away from my house.

People will say sold out, I say smart business.
This damn Zumiez shit keeps getting brought up. You're so worried about everyone wearing that shit, just wear the exclusives.

edit:
Zumiez has been selling Diamond for a while now, but not to the extent that they do now.

I'm not sure you've been here long enough to say whether or not Nick gives a shit, and frankly, he gives more attention to his customers than any exec, of probably any company for that matter, I've ever seen. Just because it's not on Hypebeast, check out his Twitter and Instagram. He's replied to me and many of us with our comments. And that's not entirely fair to say that the guys in CA are the only ones helping us out, because Nick's traveling literally every week trying to expand the business, he doesn't have time to constantly check up on us and/or making sure everything's one hunna.

It's not that he sold out either, he just made practical business decisions that we probably all would have made if we were in his position. It's just that we care about the brand as a whole, and not just the "freshest tee" that's on display first thing you see when you walk into the store.

I'd love to see these $98 sweats. I see the $88 ones. If they are made locally it shouldn't have to cost that much unless someone fooled you into buying the fabric at an insane bulk price. Wait, I;m sorry. Your pants are cut & sewn right?? Mark-up methods are non of my business and generally I wouldn't buy them regardless of how soft they are (plus i'm a chick) so my only response is thank god I can sew. And if people are buying them, damn yall are good! Can I get a job with you? I'm 1/2 kidding on that last part.

 *I'm new to street wear so forgive my ignorance*
The comments on selling out??? When Macy's, JC Penny, etc says they want your brand in your store that means you ARE somebody. Take the money and invest it into the company or go buy a Ferrari. If you decide it's not working out, don't renew the contract. If you don't want your company to succeed by making other retailers want you please create the clothes just for yourself. How is Zumiez a sell out company anyway? I see an insane list of street wear brands on their site- same stuff Karmaloop has, or are they a sell out company too???

Aside from all the negativity going on in here, did anyone pick up a Miner jacket? Man thats my favorite jacket I own of all time. Its so sick and all the pockets and stuff.

And as far as hypebeast forums and Nick go I tell him what's going on in here all the time. Pretty much everytime I see him. I keep the guys at the shop in the loop of what's going on in here too. I check the forum every single day when I get to work and throughout the day. I like to hear you guys feedback on things.

Yeah, haha I'm not even sure why he brought that up. Wasn't even relevant.

That's cool too.
I was just saying the whole Zumiez hate is ridiculous cause at the end of the day, Zumiez is very convenient. No shipping, no waiting, just like 2 bucks for tax. So getting stuff from there shouldnt be as big of a deal as people make it.

Also, like you, I do like to support my local stores, cause I have a couple here. But since Diamond's customer service (or whatever department fills store orders) is lacking, my local stores often don't get Diamond till long after Zumiez, which is inconvenient. Actually, one store just stopped carrying Diamond altogether, and I can get why. I've heard horror stories from the workers there. But again, that's a different discussion lol
