News of a new Supreme shop is always exciting; obviously for the locals, but also for fans of the brand all over the world as we see it expand and grow to be something extraordinary. Surprisingly, if you didn’t know already, while the store’s origin begins in New York, the country that has the most official outposts is actually in Japan, with more than two-thirds of the total store amount around the world. Here in the U.S., Supreme can be found at both it’s New York home and with a brick-and-mortar in Los Angeles, while over in Europe, the newest addition in Paris will accompany the London shop that’s been open since 2011.

I feel you, but no. Anytime Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga is wearing it, you Know that's a no no. It looks like a glorified Ecko. Nobody is really saying that they have to get their hands on anything Supreme.

These pics aren't really helping your case. NOBODY is walking around wearing Supreme in the places I've been to. I don't even here people talking about Supreme. Honestly, if Atlanta rappers aren't endorsing it, nobody really cares about it. In 2017, where trends and brands can gain notoriety almost instantly, I still haven't heard people talking about Supreme. As I said earlier, it's a glorified Ecko.

You do live in Baltimore after all. I think Cross Colours just made it there around 2014 or so.

Huge lines, once endemic to its New York flagship in SoHo, now form at satellite stores in Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and other cities. The current issue of British GQ Style, a men’s fashion bible, hails Supreme as “the coolest streetwear brand in the world right now.” And the Berlin culture magazine O32c called it “the Holy Grail of high youth street culture.” The Business of Fashion site called it “the Chanel of downtown streetwear.”

On the red carpet, Supreme has become a certifiable thing for rappers and pop stars. At the recent Paris Fashion Week, Kanye West arrived at the Céline show wearing a green-camouflage pullover field jacket by Supreme. In September, Frank Ocean performed on “Saturday Night Live” wearing a Supreme hockey jersey adorned with a Southwestern-style thunderbird.

But I guess one guy's experience in suburban Baltimore invalidates the above.

So dated...

No other clothing brands command this kind of devotion. Ralph Lauren had its "Lo-Lifes," a group of guys from Brooklyn who spent the early 90s stealing as much Polo as they could. Sneaker-heads tend to be Nike lifers. However, by Supreme standards, these are all middling brand obsessions—their followers the fair-weather fans to Supreme's ultras: the kids who wait in line, the adult men who'll pay silly money for vintage Supreme-branded incense sticks.

Supreme’s fanbase is huge now, and the brand hasn’t changed its less-is-more business model, so copping stuff online is really, really tough these days. According to Comscore, Supreme’s website has an average of 660,000 unique visitors per month. Six hundred and sixty thousand. That’s roughly the population of Boston. Naturally, the hoodie sold out in a matter of seconds on both EU and North American webstores when it dropped last year.

@splay, Supreme’s head of all things internet, reported that the brand’s server had a staggering 1.9 billion requests on the day the hoodie dropped last year. “That’s a lot” according to Highsnobiety‘s in-house tech squad.

It’s not easy from a retail location either. Lines stretch on for miles, and last season Supreme NY attempted to introduce order into proceedings via a ticket system, but that seems to have failed miserably, as hundreds of kids looking to buy a Supreme Box Logo hoodie swarmed security.

Migos wearing Supreme. I thought NYC fashions were dated.

Even jokes coming from someone from NYC are outdated. You probably put a lot of thought into that corny joke.

NYC city fashion is dated. I'm not talking about a brand that is based in NYC, I'm talking about other places wearing like someone from NYC would, or because NYC said it's hot. We all know that most clothing companies are based in NYC.

Face it, NYC is old news.

Then you live in a basement.

Supreme is the largest street brand currently in the US, please tell me what other street brand collabs with the likes of Jordan Brand, Lacoste, Louie Vutton, The North Face, and etc.
