I have been looking for a fit pics, etc of Camp High and can't find them anywhere. I have a few pieces by them and figured I'd start a thread here. Lot's of made in LA tie dye and high end knits and cozy culture wear. A few pics here from their instagram. Anyone on here fans of the brand?

Have a handful of pieces, they have a subreddit which is somewhat active if you have questions or anything. Long story short, I think they tend to oversaturate with releases, and many of the pieces are pretty weak. Quality has also taken a dip on the generic sweat items, and the cut and sew (while nice) isnt really worth the scratch. The brand has potential, but it just seems directionless and focuses on pushing the same stuff over and over.

Looks like deadhead cosplay. Is there a more thorough post/lookbook/etc to get a better idea?

I think you nailed it at the end there - the brand totally has potential but no direction. There clearly seems to be nobody with much business sense behind it. That being said, some of the items are really unique and cool - but again, it all feels super random. Some things are "reasonably" priced for premium active leisure, and then a random drop with a $700+ piece in it. The funny thing is they do nothing to really sell us on why it's so much money. Made in LA... detailed product shots, model shots, etc.

The model shots part kills me - so hard to determine any kind of sizing and styling since it's only the brand creator and (maybe his kid?) modeling the gear.

Again - I love the brand in a lot of ways...but they just need someone there to keep them on rails a bit more.

Yea man - see above. No organized anything. You never know the drops or anything until a few days before. It's part of the brand intrigue, but as a consumer that is willing to drop $200 on some sweatpants, I don't always feel like I'm getting enough love from them.

they kinda reminds me of visvim- not too much detail on website, but something you need to hold and see in person in order to appreciate the product. That being said, ive yet to see in person some of their higher priced items

Founders were creative director of Burton and the other was a designer at Supreme and a buyer for Union. I'd not discount their business sense or cultural sense.

I disagree (https://www.vice.com/en/article/z4daj5/is-burton-snowboards-in-trouble)

It seems like a wealthy person pet project, and those that came from Burton only care about their narrow and selfish interests. I think bald Greg has talent, but my understanding is that most the design is actually outsourced (Erik Brunetti being one of them) and there is no cohesion or organization to their collections.
