Words

"Inspired by founder Nigo’s love of fine tailoring and his time spent with some of the world’s finest tailors on Savile Row (including Huntsman and Anderson & Sheppard), the debut range is a tight capsule collection of suits, shirts, ties, and shoes made to the highest design and production standards. The range embodies two key looks – British classic, and American classic – with all items showing a distinct influence of one or the other."

Oh sick I was just trying to figure out how to look more like an asian rapper.

No thanks I'd go to Savill Row instead and have classic taylored stuff without the dumb gimmicks.

RastaMonsta or Haterade? Tough call.

Either way: you know my thoughts.

But also: does anyone else find it funny when monkeys are dressed up like humans?

PG Fucking Tips.

Asian rappers wear blazers and loafers? That must be that new steeze.

Amusing to see that Bape has turned into a brand that people hate on principle.

Saw the real things in person and have to say the fabrics and cuts are top notch, but then, you hate Bape you hate Bape, maybe it's had to tell from the pictures but this line has some pretty fine products.

It's not about hating Bape, it's about how far can you stretch an image/brand. It's pretty obvious that streetwear/Bape is dead.
February 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBob
I don't reckon streetwear is dead, it's just blown its load for the time being... it's 'played out' as you yanks say. The saturation is partly down to brands like Bape who hyped the fuck out of it.

I personally wouldn't go anywhere near anything associated with Bape and it kills me to see them on the same blog as Viberg, Duluth, MHL et al. Pathetic opportunism.

Streetwear is dead? LOL. For who? Hipsters? Is everyone doing the cheesy work-wear thing these days? Are the going for the technical apparel look wearing such brands as Arcteryx Veilance? High water chinos?

God forbid someone actually like Bape! It's all Woolrich, EG, Visvim, White Mountaineering, wearing hiking boots in the city....Etc.

We all know it's just about hype in the fashion world. Woolrich and the likes are now what Bape was a few years ago.
And now we see streetwear brands jumping on board the next big thing train trying to tell us that they have been doing outdoor, trecking, preppy and heritage stuff for years. Just look at Element. Or Carhartt Europe paired with A.P.C. trying to ride the preppy wave. Everyone is going for their crappy interpretation of the suede buck. At least in Europe it seems that a lot of streetwear associated brands are abandoning ship.
Sure people are still buying streetwear brands. But a shift in focus is still noticable.
