Guess who is back in Town.

Supreme, is back. Pockets about to be emptied, kids racing to their parents begging for money to burn on the next high-priced Hypebeast tee. Gone are the days you can casually pick up some Supreme. The OG days are dead. Yet here I am still into all the hype repping the same brands, loving the scene but hitting the garish side of what they have to offer (you don’t see so many of the kids in the weird sh*t).

So after hitting on the sign up on the Tuesday (not a Monday, just to confuse. Then to make it worse Suptalk on Facebook started some trolling tricks on the unsuspecting) here is me hitting up last Thursdays drop in person. Massive line, and so slow to get in, anything above place 150 was NOT getting in the store, we were told to come back Friday, luckily my number was low enough and I squeezed my ass in. I decided to save on the online pick up this week despite wanting another tee I left it wasn’t easily and took self-control believe me. Pink Palace Triferg had to be mine. My only Palace requirement this season.

So now that Week One has been and gone both in-store and online here is my review and my pick ups. Week One of Supreme Spring/Summer 2018 shows that the season is back in full swing. Hype AF.


Here are my pick ups for week 1, for me it was about decks and tees, disappointed that the Vibrations Corduroy Jacket didn’t drop, rumours were about for this but the blue colour way will be mine this season.

Skulls, Decks, Flowery headwear and Illegal Business. 

So if you have been read any of my blogs you will know that I am all about headwear. The Floral Washed Chino Twill Camp Cap was a must, its smart with a touch of personality, adding this with a dark outfit with little detail would be my advice, this way you can really show off the pattern, I am going to be pairing this with a Carhartt Work Jacket with Gold detailing as the colours will compliment the hat perfectly.

Well decks came in hard and strong (Chicken dinner… not so much, this will be one the ugliest decks supreme will ever do). Skull Pile shouted out to me from my Emo days, anything that is slightest punk will always be added to my collection (ANOTHER BAND COLLAB PLEASE!) and this had to be. Its garish design and glow in the dark skulls will look amazing in a modern aesthetic room. We also seen the return of Illegal Business Controls America, in the form of a deck, this one is for you collectors. It is a piece of art and going to be highly collectible. I might buy the other colour ways but since two was the store limit and only one IBCA it had to black. 

‘Re-light my fire.’ While I garden in the dark… 

ZIPPO, just had to cop this. In the style and colour way of the Louis Vuitton collab this was always going to be a hot piece. Always up on my list and amazingly my first lighter from Supreme and I can tell you it won’t be my last. For the bargain price of £10 I can now do my gardening like a Hypebeast. One of the weirder accessories but I had to add this into the collection for no real reason. Another real bizare one the Luminaid, I don’t camp, I won’t ever need this but my god I felt the need to have one of these. Weird and amazing accessories to kick off the season. F*!k$ng top work ‘Preme. 

Fuck the World. 

Fuck The World in red, offensive subtle and a classic wear. Jellyfish Tee was the best graphic of the week and for summer vibes I went with a clean white. Both of these will be paired with either blue or black denim and some Vans as part of my regular rotations. Necklace Tee, I had to have as a Saliva fan from my OG Punk Rock days. I seen and fell in love with this Peach colour way and thought black jeans and under a black jacket this will look fresh so this was a 100% pick up for me. Also how perfect is this colour for a Spring/Summer range? Just to keep to the classic colours I did pick up the Cards Tee in Black (not pictured) purely for the back print of the dates for the season.


SO, it was time for all to flex it out and crack out the finest garms. The culture lives around a Thursday so it is vital that you wear something you love or something to impress and make another Hypebeast look and go DAMN.

We had TNF’s, box logos, we seen Nike, Off-White, ACW, Carhartt and of course a lot of various Supreme pieces.


Catch you on the flip till the next drop guys. Keep an eye out for some What did You Wear Today posts, apologise for the neglecting these it has been a busy few weeks, I will be catching you all up soon in a lifestyle blog!

What Did You Wear Today?

20170812_134124

 

Hat: Supreme Camp; Brown White Camo, Red bogo

Top: Patagonia LS White

Trousers: All Saints Chino

Footwear: Vans X Thrasher Sk8 Hi

 

Grey Britain today, what more could you expect from September? No more Summer, not quite Autumn. That time of year which feels like limbo. Bright side is, perfect long sleeve weather, any streetwear wardrobe is incomplete without Patagonia, always keep mine stocked with a LS White and LS Black.

For you Supreme Fans, can you believe that this hat is FW16? Longing for time to calm itself down a bit. The cow camo has been a firm favourite in my rotation since. I remember buying this while in a field at Leeds Festival, how I managed to cop while that intoxicated, no idea. Flooded tents, loud music, urine flying in pint cups, and that smell that can only be described as disgusting yet blissful freedom of no responsibility… Festival season 2018 is calling already! 

Vans X Thrasher

Sheeeeee, these beauts are still sitting online at Vans (perplexes me). With the iconic Thrasher flames wrapping around the Sk8 Hi silhouette, these are an old school dream. The subtle release of these created quite a stir, now been out a while, the apparel sold FAST, yet the footwear has sat. For me these were the piece to get, these have become part of regular rotation.

Week one finally arrived.

SO FINALLY, my week one cops arrived. Once again the size of week one was something else. Always a large drop, always too much I want. I copped all I wanted (taking a massive L on the Nas Tee, but we can just ignore my BIG L).

What did I actually cop then?

#shovellingshit #cleanteethgang

SHOVEL

Time to start digging.

SO who is part of the clean teeth gang? Following up last years incense matches, this years free gift of a Toothbrush had all the Hypebeasts talking. Could hear the murmurs in LDN about how fresh Pete’s breath was after getting a new brush.

Did anyone anyone else cop the shovel? I certainly dug myself a hole with the other half after that landed on the door step. How could I resist this though, absolute FIRE.

Michel who?

MICLAGLO

Michelangelo, who else. Anyone remotely into art knows this name, even if you don’t you would recognise his naked David (Cheeky, depending on angle). This year supreme have brought his art to a LS Top, burgundy was fire from the offset and this piece was a must in my collection. The fit is nothing short of perfect, baggy in all the right places and a LS Tee with loose fitting wrist. This piece is 100% my piece of the week.

Made Possible With Your Support. The Venus tee was teased before the season even started, slight change to the bank print on actual drop. Always a sucker for a front and back print, nothing wrong with being the person who takes their jacket off cause the back print is too good to hide.

Pack your bags.

BAGS

Does anyone remember those HEAD Sports Bags? I remember members of my family carrying so much trash around in those, these feel like a throwback to them. The way SUPREME is wrote across the top, all the way down to the material used. This has sat now for 3 weeks in the black why I don’t know. cause Supreme threw a curveball with something different. Keep an eye out for posts to come and you will get to know I look to be different while everything now is mainstream. I’ve seen people say it’s like a bin bag, personally I love these new bags. I did always rock bin bags as a kid at halloween and was always the freshest bin bag monster on the block. #TheFoxHuntersPub #HalloweenChampOf1999 

Did you even start the season if you didn’t get some new headwear?

Mandatory hat. If I’m out of work you will find me with a hat on my head turned backwards and most likely Vans on my feet. Pink Camo? Yeah, sorry no way I was holding back on this LIT piece. The wardrobe will feature the single block colours, but once you’ve built your base it is time to push the boundaries, get some wavy patterns and snazzy garms. This hat combined with Vans Vault X Brain Dead Era LX or Vans X Stussy Chukka Boots in Pink make for more Iconic Duos than Kanye West and Taylor Swift . . . Wait, what? #shovellingsomeshit
