Hey guys, so what's being released? 'Streetwear clothes.' No, specifically, what's being released, some sort of exclusive? 'Oh, uh, nothing. Supreme was closed for a week moving stuff around and now they have new merchandise.'
We're impressed by the controlled shopping in skate- and streetwear shops. You look inside and the place is busy but by no means packed. Is this to make sure there's no five-finger discounts or to create hype to the public? Either way, we don't think we'd have the patience. [RackedWire]
