    yeah, and they will fall apart in a week. not saying supreme is reasonably priced, but the quality is much better than that.
    They get their products from the same Chinese sweatshops as everyone else is manufacturing in china. Production costs for using slightly thicker fabrics and materials is not going to significantly change the final production price. The majority of the cost is in the labor and that stays pretty constant. Quality control is something the large companies can have a tighter control on but beyond that it's not like they are not going to be magically made far superior. If you took the time and energy to get in contact with different factories, and get sample orders produced and find the quality you are looking for I am sure you could produce the same quality that Supreme produces a lot of their products at for a much cheaper cost if your MOQ was high enough and you invested enough time in the pre-production process.

    I know that Supreme has collaborations with companies who produce within the US or Canada, and use higher quality fabrics from time to time like Woolrich wool or CYC Fleece (Canadian), but on average their garments are produced in China anymore, and as long as you're tight on CC and have a good line of communications with the factory you can get some very nicely produced things out of China cheaply.

    yeah, and all intel cpu's are also made in china, but that doesn't mean they're all equally powerful.

    Yep, Supreme doesn't make anything in China.

    Regardless, I'm sure their stuff is just fine quality, but in my opinion nothing unbelievable or worth $350 for a long sleeve shirt if you're judging that purely on quality or design.

    Second one from the bottom is a shirt. From what I gather their hats are US made, their hoodies are often Canadian made but not exclusively. None of what I posted are collaborations, they are all normal supreme products. TNF colabs are made in Bangladesh, Schott colabs are made in New York (Because it's Schott, not Supreme's doing) Many of their products are made in China, that's all I was saying.

    which is true, but ajaks is right, some jackets are made in china, and they are super expensive, too much for being made in china, but really, most everything they make is made in america

    So how would I go about asking for some help on wardrobe? I've been trying to dress nicer recently, because honestly, the band tee's, jeans, and sneakers everyday has really got to go.

    Well it depends on what kind of style you're looking for. You can start by simply replacing band t-shirts with simpler t-shirts, avoid anything plastered in obnoxious logos. If I was starting from scratch and was new to everything I'd find someones style I like, who is roughly the same build, and figure out why I like it, and go from there.

    Im looking for a pair of dark brown pants that are as *forgiving as jeans.

    *forgiving as in they can get beat up and have **shit spilled and stained on them without it looking awful/too noticable.

    **shit as in oil paint (sometimes doesnt lift off completely), charcoal, guacamole, and coffee.



    Regular chinos have are too proper. they got no texture or variation in tone so the smallest stain stands out too much.

    Edited:

    Are brown jeans a thing?

    Canvas chinos?

    Maybe i'll get some slim-fit camo pants.
