Supreme x Comme Des Garcons… wow this is hard on the eyes:
I just posted a few of the pieces, but they are all equally as hideous. You can check out all 29 pages worth of pictures in the lookbook over at Supreme. I feel that the two solid color dress shirts with the sleeve accents are the most wearable, but you wouldn’t catch me spending Supreme capsule collection money on those.
I’m not the biggest fan of digital camouflages on streetwear in the first place, then they go and put contrast polkadots on it? *Pusha-T Yeeeeechhhh*
In my opinion Supreme is really coming across as a “Tryhard” brand lately.

Because all of us hardcores are worried about giving up our position when we un-glove our hands to text or answer a call. Never be caught without some sort of disruptive pattern covering your skin at ALL times when you’re out in the wild.
What you see there is a re-issue of Victorinox Swiss Army’s first watch (*cough* timepiece). Notice that classic leather band, with the extra piece of leather behind the watch band itself just to lay nice and comfortably on the wrist. This is where the game gets changed… see that innocent looking leather dome beside the watch? Well that’s to cover up the entire watch head, making you look like you have some sort of round leather brick on your wrist, and to likely protect the mineral crystal too. Check a screen shot of the watch in cover-up mode below:
A promo video featuring the watch:
A definite predicament of style and stunting. Sure we’re talking Swiss Army money on the wrist, but as long as your not one of those herbs that I constantly hear taking that “man I have a cellphone, what do I need a watch for?” shit, then flaunt it if you got it. I’m torn on this once, because I’m one of those guys that spent compact-car money on a watch (Rolex Submariner), and although I do have face-covering straps I put on it occasionally just to switch things up, ultimately I find myself drawn back to the factory steel bracelet. Why? Because it’s shinier and the whole world knows what’s on your wrist. Actually that last part is a lie… I realized that 99.99999% of the people I encounter on a yearly basis couldn’t give two shits about an expensive watch, and they would probably be more impressed with a fluorescent band G-Shock… even if they were shown them side by side. So I guess I’ll just default back to the “because it’s shinier” statement then. It’s the small pleasures in life like catching the glare off of it while I’m driving, or temporarily blinding a MILF in Starbucks as I do one of those “Look at the watch but not actually the time” type checks, just because.
Even the goat in that video screenshot is peeping the old man’s steeze in his peripheral.
More info and pictures on the Victorinox website. The price on the watch isn’t shown online, but it will be available in select stores soon. I’m guessing ~$300 territory.
The bad thing about the internet is it makes you realize that you need more money, and it finds good ways to quickly get rid of the money you do have. At ~$530,000 USD this isn’t even remotely in my price range, yet I feel as if I can’t optimally operate in operations if I don’t get one. *sigh* haha
The thing about the Mercedes G-Class is that it has always been nice for off road, diesel versions even being used world wide by various militaries.
haha Payless isn’t actually involved in the collab, but you’d never know it by looking at the shoes. Come on Nigo!… Jeeeze. This is when you know a higher end brand is struggling. They begin to collab with low end brands who focus on pricing and distribution strategies aimed at the masses. Sure millions will be made as the high end brand deviates from its original self, but at what cost? Thought anything BAPE you had was unique? Wait 6 months from now when junior high kids are getting their moms to pick up the AAPE rebranded / low end collab version of everything you own from stores like Zumiez, Payless, Target, and Walmart.
No word on the price of this shoe yet, but I’m sure none of you care anyway. I sure don’t.
