i seen a brand called corteiz or crtw all over twitter, i checked out the site and it's a brand from england, uk

£110.00 or $133 usd for a pair of sweatpants... how is that purchase justifiable?

another brand is called Separate Collection

who the fu*k would pay for something like that? most of the underground streetwear brands are made by dudes who buy gildan products in bulk off aliexpress and stamp their logo on it and mark up the price, not to mention most are fu*king ugly and people just buy them because its a trend

the independent fashion / gear game is a joke

Well when its black owned and from authentic street dudes and dudettes its cool or when its from people who are stans of the culture and respectfully contribute their ideas on the style. I see where you're coming from though. Some people just in it for the money grab because they're vultures, others have love for the culture and want others to see the beauty they see. Sorry for the essay.

FTP drops some pretty dope stuff, if it’s something that sells out it’s pretty much a collectible so that makes people more drawn to it

good point

how many of them are in it just for the money and clout? it has to be a lot of them because of the prices

also, none of these brands are targeted at inner city youth

I know. Hopefully thats why they fail. When street wear comes from the creatives who are authentic to the culture, you'll see it in the clothes. Like Miskeen before they sold it. As well as all the street wear from the late 80's and 90's early 2000's etc. It was created out of love when that doesnt exist its trash. Thats why I hate these euro-peon brands getting named dropped in rap. We used to create the brand.
