Adam Kimmel For Supreme

—01. Twill cotton suits in navy & black.

Words

The spring collaboration between Adam Kimmel and Supreme has been hyped up enough, but I think the product does deserve a good look. With simple detailing, nice fabrics and a good fit, the two companies have put out a nice product. Especially the navy cotton twill suit, which works nice separately, would prove to be a great piece to have. Read the interviews below, and you can also catch the Adam Kimmel jacket in the spring Supreme editorial in our latest issue of Inventory.

I've been down with Supreme since 99," and I know you've gotta push the envelope and think outside the box and all but, this has got to be one of the stupidest collaborations I have ever seen. not just from them but, from anyone. To go so far outside the skating realm..... This is still one of their better seasons but, like I said, one of the dumbest colabs I've ever come across.

@ William it totally makes sense why they would do this collaboration. If you read the interview everyone (yes, even skaters) has events that they need to dress up for (i.e. weddings, etc.). Why not design something for their customers that they could use for these occasions at a reasonable price? It makes more sense than a pair of timberlands or nunchucks.

If skaters need to dress up for a wedding they have thousands of options already available. They don't need a special collab bullshit.
Skaters are not a different human specie. They can go to any suit shop, like anyone else.

So You or Me for that matter should spend a grand on an un-tailored suit that won't fit right for occasions that might pop up once or twice a year. I don't think so. You can get a tailord suit for a couple more hundos and a nicer one at that. Maybe you, but surely not me.

The idea of this suit seems to be that you could wear it everyday and it doesn't look to dressed up (and its unlined and undarted and has patch pockets) and looks like the twill would stand up to alot. Someone really needed to do this, if only we could actually buy it and it wasn't so pricey. I was kinda hoping Uniqlo would do it to be honest...

I'm not saying you need to buy it, but it seems as though you don't understand the whole idea of lifestyle brand or the business model of a "one-stop-shop" and the value it provides to its customers.

the product looks good but the way it's sold as a "suit for skaters who can't find a proper skater suit" is a bit weird. That's it.

Understanding is not the issue. There is no such thing as a one stop shop anyways. Especially when your always in the market for quality sake. which, "let's be real, Is what we are all about, on this sight." Just because you can, doesent always mean you should. Look at all the different brands and product Inventory offers. If it was as simple as one brand, one store..... Don't you think that everyone would shop at Supreme and call it a day? I'll just politely agree to disagree.

This suit cost nowhere near a grand, so I'm not sure where you got that from. Plus, the suit is tailored. What you're referencing to is bespoke, which is completely different.

Furthermore, Supreme made a suit because they wanted to. Who cares why? Don't buy it if you have no rational to. Simple.

Stop arguing about what's right or wrong. Keep your home values to yourselves.
This collab will still sell out, so it means they are giving what people want. No one is pointing a gun and force you to buy this. Grow up.

(And yes, this is coming from a guy who is NOT a supreme fan)

These are gorgeous...
OK so people are not alowed to discuss any topic then.
Because something sells well we shouldn't critisize it ? What does that mean ? Are you a Lady Gaga fan ?
