    Nobody buys Rick at retail. Look at the attention that Gilt sale got over there. Humorously I think Fark might have paid retail for a lot of his stuff given how quickly it amassed. Dunno bout RFX

    That bomber is from Gilt, no denying that.
    I can't say I always pay retail but I got no problem paying retail, it's the only way to get authentic LV. [​IMG]

    there's a couple there who do, but the people who are oh so offended that john meyer wears their precious ccp don't have the money to buy it in the first place.

    Stop mmisrepresenting a position (that I don't agree with) and trying to guess people's bank account (you don't know any SZers and who cares about that anyway).

    how is it misrepresenting? there literally have been posts about how certain people don't deserve to wear the brands. im not talking about the fark aesthetic discussion, but when pictures of people like john meyer wearing ccp come up, etc.

    dunno
    I don't think SZ is particularly sold on the DBSS sneaks. You would be better off with CCP or Julius boots. Fark is a dude who went on SZ, bought the shit out of everything they hyped and started posting some often pretty damned solid WAYWTs and had the SZ faithful predictably shit all over him for essentially buying their aesthetic... "you don't understand the background / history / conceptual underpinnings of your clothes", that kinda crap. Apparently it offends people who use their taste in clothing as a means to tell themselves they're artistic and better than others when you do that [​IMG]
    I think its actually the fact that he was blindly seeking approval. Have you seen the video he made of himself? Some of the hate was because he bought a ton of shit they probably couldn't buy in such a short amount of time, but still. Not to mention whenever people would suggest ANYTHING he would do it immediately. He shaved his whole head just because a handful of people told him to...at face value it certainly seems like he is seeking approval. Dunno bout now, because he is changing, but I definitely think he does hold their opinions very highly.

    Oh I ordered from ForwardForward, they have a free overnight shipping and in the same state as me. It was actually suppose to arrive yesterday (ordered Wednesday) but it got delayed.
