No, those clothing lines like that usually go to department stores when their buzz is done.



On their own so people aren't in their pockets? Ecko, G-unit, and Sean John didn't start in Macy's. Once they were wack and everybody was off it then they went to a department store and you see everybody in it.

What do you mean on their own ?? None of those brands just popped up on the scene with their own stand-alone store. Even Sean John had to get established first by being sold through some type of third party retailer. Department stores are where the money is at, anybody trying to make million off their brand is gonna want to get carried by someone like Macys. What you call having "buzz" is called bubbling up on the underground and I guess what you call "dying out" is have enough brand recognition in the mainstream to get carried by a store like Macys where the big money is at. This is Macy's we're talking about not K-Mart.

I think you have Macy's confused with TJ Maxxx or Marshall's or something.

You can't compare Polo being in Macys to Sean John, rocawear, etc. Polo has its own section and has been around for decades. Most Streetwear brands go from their own exclusive sites to online sites(karmaloop,zumiez,etc.) and then to physical stores that carry more exclusive stuff. Thats why you've never seen Hundreds,Crooks and Castles, 10 Deep, and other Streetwear brands in Macys. I don't even think Akoo has carried on to Macys. Rocawear and Sean John are large Urban Fashion brands that carry everything.

So? Polo has outlets too.. You think Polo went straight to Macy's when they first came out? They wouldn't still be popular to this day if they did.

They started out just like Versace, Burberry, Gucci, etc. Overpriced and everybody wanted it. Then they made it more affordable compared to the others and accessible. Actually pretty smart.

They should have took the BBC approach and I'm sure they did and realized nobody wanted to buy this garbage so they went straight to department stores while they still had some leverage.
 Yinz N Burgh said:
Usually they create a buzz or demand before they go to department stores because then people see it as a sale or cheap compared to what is use to be and it sells more. When everybody can afford it and is wearing it, it just becomes whatever.


Polo started off in Bloomingdales which is a department chain owned by Macy's back in 1969.


Are you seriously trying to bring in Versace, Gucci, and Burberry into this ?? You're comparing high-end european fashion design houses to American urban wear ??

I think you need to understand what a company's target market is. A store like Macy's is the highest retail platform you're gonna achieve for casual wear and urban wear brands like Sean John. There is nothing higher to move up to with any company that specializes in jeans and t-shirts. You think this stuff is gonna be able to be sold at Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus ???


I think you're a.ssuming that these companies would start off selling in independent high end fashion boutiques which is also ridiculous. Sure it's been tried and it has failed with many companies like BBC as you mentioned, it's just a stupid idea. Boutiques are for those that want to be fashionably exclusive, you dont that shyt with anything even remotely related with a t-shirt and jeans.

Either that or you think they would have their own stand alone store which also historically usually doesn't happen until a company proves they can be successful occupying floor space inside of another retailer.


I think you're a.ssuming that all department stores are the same. Macy's isn't JCPenny's , Sears, or K-Mart. Those other stores are considered low range discount department stores. Macy's is considered mid to high range.

Trukfit will die out quick being sold at Macys bottom line. Most streetwear brands start selling at independent streetwear boutiques to keep it somewhat exclusive. Sure Trukfit will make a lot of money for a little time though, but you gotta remember it's just skater wear I don't have the variety like Rocawear and Sean John and it took a longgg time for LRG to be carried by Macys. Now, you don't see as many people rockin it.. do you?

Urban wear is not poppin period right now like it used to be. I dont see LRG much but I dont see Rocawear or Sean John either. Sean John and Rocawear were already fading away when LRG was at prominence.

The urban fashion industry is similar to the music industry, the vast majority of people dont start off independent because they want to, but because they have to. Then once you bubble up and make a name for yourself the major labels (Macy's) will agree to sign you.


This whole "exclusive" facade that you guys are trying to paint is similar to those indie fans who say " Oh so and so isn't on a major because they dont want to be " when 9 times outta 10 it's bullshyt. Especially in the fashion industry, particularly the urban fashion industry where most of the guys behind those brands just want to blow up and make millions and see their shyt everywhere. They'd rather make 100 million off a 3 year run than 100 million off a 20 year run selling at some stand .


The way most American fashion companies do exclusivity is by pricing, If your price is too high, most stores wont carry you anyway, but Ralph Lauren keeping their shirts around $70 ensures that you wont see it on absolutely everyone. Alot of Urban brands have a tendency to die out based on them prospering off trend. It has nothing to do with Macy's , Macy's sells brands that have been considered classic middle class brands for years and years and aren't going anywhere. Brands like Polo, Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, Tommy Hilfiger, Izod, Perry Ellis, DKNY, etc.

Urban brands like Rocawear, Sean John, Ecko, etc dont fade out because they're at Macy's they fade out because just like the musical climate they hail from they pop off trend and therefore are a.ssigned a 15 minute window similar to how the rap industry works in it's current state. Whether a urban brand is at Macy's or a boutique it has a high chance of fading out after the same amount of time. You remember Miskeen and Rich Yung dont you ???
