The Supreme Brand


If you look at some of the goods this brand puts out year after year you can't but end up with one question, why are these guys so successful? The idea of a 'GOAT' brand, like Coca-cola,Nike, Alife, and alas Supreme has bewildered me for a bit. What makes these brands so special. They all exist among other brands vying for who will knock them off their pedestal first yet manage to control the hearts and pockets of the majority of their consumer base EASILY.

Many of these companies have been around forever so I guess age could be the secret ingredient to their success. Or maybe their street marketing team has been so dope for so long that you and I can't help but get swept up in the hype. Legend brands like Supreme inspire me because the way they never do things status-quo. Anybody could release the same hooded jackets they put out and still not get 1/2 as much recognition.

None of their products are off the wall bonkers either. 90% of their stuff carries more weight and street cred than any of their competition could dream of, without the flash or gimmicks. So here's me giving respect where its due. I hope one day I can figure out their secret, learn how to duplicate it, brand it, and mass market it so I can die filthy rich. lol.

Check out the line here: Supreme NYC

Supreme will be releasing their new line online september 8th @ 11am (4 days after its release in supremes official stores), and will be sold out of their entire remaining inventory minutes after, so don't sleep.

Hundreds merchandise available wholesale!!!

The hundreds have finally released their fall 08 line online, check it out, check it out!

Nas rockin undrcrwn gear is a good look.

Lol at the tee and its inspiration.

Bombs over Africa !!!?

This is the single most shallow post I've ever seen bobbyhundreds put up. How on earth does this benefit anyone other than thehundreds. I wish I were in Rosewood LA right now so I could find him and kick his face in.

Papertrail and Akoo

Its always good to see one of the brothers making it. So far the line doesn't look half bad, you can definetely see that the clothing line has some streetwear influences. See tube (he's got a guy frontin with a skateboard for god sakes). Akoo is basically a toned down Billionaire boys club, now lets see if he goes limited edition on us. The line will be released (and I quote) 'october, november' of this year. I do wonder though what the idea behind the wolf is.

Swagger like us

I know everybody else has a 'swaggerlikeus' post, so here's mine. LOL.

You can pay for school but can't buy class. (CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THESE NIGGAS MADE A VIDEO and Jeezy/nas made a cameo-DAMN!)

Young millionaires: Greg selkoe

Every year a little magazine by the name of ENTREPRENEUR publishes a list of young millionaires doing it big early. Outside of the blogs, I make it a point to read certain papers and magazines, Entrepreneur happens to be one of the latter. As it turns out, this year Karmaloop creator Greg Selkoe is one of those young go-getters who the magazine finds worthy enough to put a spotlight on. The article on Selkoe is brief but is interesting enough. Lucky for you the guys over at entrepreneur put even more stuff from the interview on the website than in the mag, so click here to check it out.

Kanye reveals his Pastelle line

Kanye has released some samples of his new clothing line in Vman magazine(???) recently. The clothing isn't what I expected, I expected something more along the lines of BBC. Tees, hoodys, and really tight jeans, and maybe a couple of shades, but I guess he flipped the script on us.

Randomz: Audioslave gasoline

Audioslave is what's in.

Corporate Takeover has a new page

These guys always put out really interesting posts but have been of the scene for a while now, redesigning their webpage. Hit up 'Corporate Takeover' in the links section to check out their page.

Favorites: Drake interview, Corporate takeover of Jay-Z, and Great minds think alike (Malcolm Gladwell is one hell of a writer).

Why not to get into streetwear: Reason #4

New Era's eagle tee

Crooks & castles illuminati collection

You'll get ripped off by the most unlikeliest of competition. Both tees even go for the same price of $40, lol. The game has changed.

Randomz (Bow Wow madden rant)

A hundred thousand????? Man, I hope Bow wow can back that up...

Reason for video below:

That can NOT be game with the 50 and 4. Impossible. Regardless though, game is doing his thing. I just might cop that LAX.

Pineapple Express

I saw tropic thunder 2 days ago and it blew. There had to be only 3 people in the audience who laughed the entire movie and one of them had to be drunk or high (or both). Then I thought maybe I wasn't laughing as much because I was watching the movie alone (duh). So tonight me, my ex-girlfriend, and a couple of friends are going to see 'Pineapple'. It looks hilarious and I figure the jokes will be a lot funnier since we're all gonna get wasted first. Hooray for keystone light. lol.

Lil wayne's Lollipop by Madison?!


Don't ask me why I posted this video, ask me how on earth I found it. Realtalk, this will have me laughing for days.

Just in

Nike+Ipod is the shit.

Don't believe the Hype!

I know the preseason doesn't really mean much, and isn't taken very seriously as far as wins and losses go (compared to the regular season). But the cowboys have lost every game they've played this pre-season and the packers just got blown out by the 49ers??? Are the 49ers that good? What do you do when your team has all the talent in the world and you still can't win games?

The Cowboys and the Packs (and recently the Jets) are the teams I watch, but I would hate to be the coach of any one of them. The start of the season will be here before you know it and from the looks of it your favorite teams might just have to rely on that infamous phrase "there's always next year".

So go Jets, Pats, Chargers, Colts, and vikings.

Milorad Cavic: the one who almost had it.

California-born swimmer Milorad 'Mike' Cavic was the other guy on august 16 who came the closest to beating our own (Michael Phelps). According to an article on Cavic, who swam for serbia, is a name that is not unfamiliar to many of the worlds greatest swimmers. Heres an interesting quote: Ian Crocker, the world record holder in the 100m butterfly who placed fourth in Beijing (and whom many thought would be Phelps' biggest threat on Saturday's race) said, "I know Cavic very well. My senior year at Texas he was the world record holder in the short course 100m fly. He had me sweating the whole year."

Mike is the guy to the right of phelps.

The meet was one of the few olympic events I was able to catch, needless to say it was pretty amazing. A lot of people are calling phelps the greatest athlete alive and for a swimmer who came into the race looking for bronze to be that much of a threat to phelps was interesting to watch.

Read the full article here.

Nancy Erminia

Of course I've gotta have the lame intro pic, its procedure. Who is she? She's appeared in several Maxim magazines. Still don't remember her, that's alright, neither do I, and I didn't think she'd hold my attention, till I saw these that is:

Saving the best for (second to) last, couldn't be helped. Maaaaan, I so wanna put my face right in there. KanYe is stupid for posting this chick. Massive ups.

Diz Gibran

Smoking section landed an interview with Diz Gibran (the dude who's always poppin up on thehundreds blog every now and then). Apparently he raps and isn't half bad. Its a really good interview, check it out below. Also get acquainted with his work if you aren't already.

This week the Levi's brand is running a "unbuttoned" campaign to market their iconic shrink-to-fit 501 jeans. Most of the marketing is done exclusively online and 'unbuttons' a cast of some of the coolest artists (and athletes, and entertainers) today. Below are some of the stand outs.

Kobe: never not working

How to Drift in an M3

I had a chance to drive one of these bad boys and impressed wasn't the word. I'd kill for a BMW E46 M3 but I wouldn't complain one bit if I could get my hands on a brand new 08.

Champion by Kanye west

A throwaway

Whatever 'they' like

T.I.- So what type of record should I put out as a single?
PSC (in unision)- A track for the ladies, like that lil nigga weezy did.
T.I.- Like lollipop
PSC (in unision)- hell yeah man, we need to eat while you're gone, u know.
T.I.- Sure right.


Hype (above)

I think the whole adding new challenges and making the game harder for 'pro' players is complete blasphemy. A 5 year madden player should not win by any less than 28 points against a madden noob. ANything else is straight bull.

Oh and yes I do have the game, and its sweeet. It will take a little time to get used to it, but lets put it this way, in my very first online game I ended the game with a score of Pats 28 Chargers 7, guess who I rolled with? T Money baby.

New Skool memories: champ is here

Charlie Rose interviews Ralph Lauren

Watch the full interview above. Needless to say RL is a true American genius.


The first thing I was gonna do when i saw the post on hypebeast about the new Nike X NewEra fitted collabs was to hate. Not that I hate at all, I just inform in a not always rosy way. Anyway, the AF-1 insignia on the front is cool and all, but the Nike Air trademark on the back of the cap with the whole New york colorways theme is stupid TOUGH. Yeah, i need me a threesome. Prolly the jets version, the browns, and the nightrider black. Ya digg.

more pics:

Couldn't post this without Hypebeast of course.
