Y'all are triiiiippin.

All it takes to get those early release emails is to make a purchase. Buy one thing. Like any thing. Support the brand, like even a lite bit.

Could ALD make more quantities? I guess, but you also have no idea what their manufacturing is like, order quantities, or their prediction models. Also, all of these product orders were placed over a year ago, and with a pandemic, who knows if the factories were able to successfully meet them, or what demand ALD predicted. Don't assume they just wanna create hype, damn.

I'm sure it's a lot easier to sell sweatpants with KITH on the side than a full cut & sew line with as many pieces per season as ALD. Y'all forget just how many SKUs come out every drop.

who's this "y'all"? I don't see anyone crying about not getting EA emails lol.
btw I've made a couple of purchases on there in the past few months so it's not just 'one thing'. I'm not complaining though, as I didn't expect to be given EA after just spending a few hundred bucks.

I've bought stuff from ALD and didn't get an ER email.

I think they’ve been playing around with EA emails starting last season given the increase in popularity. For this recent 550 drop my sisters email got an EA email even though the only thing bought was a pair of 827s from last year.
For the Clark’s drop from Reddit it seemed like a lot of ppl who normally got EA didn’t get email but then drop after that it seemed fine? Clarks were also most readily available in terms of multiple retailers carrying them (and I think you probably could’ve scooped at discount depending on retailer).
No idea on criteria they use to determine if you’re EA or not but I expect to be rolled off soon since there’s definitely a lot more interest now and I don’t spend as much.

thanks.

The apparel felt very Kith-ish tbh, but the sneakers I like.
What I be saying. One bus stop from Kith at this point.

well the discord def knows a bit more when it comes to blanks and manufactuers. was hoping someone in there could give us the hookup on the leather goods provider but no dice.

not an official on just made by fans like the reddit. They were able to sleuth out the manufactures of some pieces and then did a bulk buy at cost.
