Thom Browne x Supreme [FAKE!!!]

with 8 comments

THIS JUST IN…THE THOM BROWNE FOR SUPREME COLLECTION IS FAKE, I REPEAT FAKE. This is NOT AN OFFICIAL COLLAB. Thom Browne came to speak this evening at the Katie Murphy Amphitheater located on the Fashion Institute of Technology’s campus and quickly denied the collaboration. He specifically said that there was no official collab and that Supreme simply bought Thom Browne oxfords wholesale! We are interested to see what becomes of this…

NOTE: Urban Takeout is not taking sides in this matter, we are just making sure that you the Urban Graduate stay informed. Urban Takeout, we got you covered!!

  4. How do you sound? Do you even understand the meaning of a “collaboration”? Both parties have to be in favor of the idea, both parties have to approve of the concept and products. As much as supreme-heads and Thom Browne-heads would’ve liked it to be, this sadly isn’t the case (spoken by Thom Browne yesterday). It’s just a poor move on behalf of Supreme — accept it, and move on.

    I’ll close with a quote from a profound cartoonist, Aaron McGruder. ‘Real recognize real…and you’re looking kind of unfamiliar.’

  5. The idea of a “collaboration” is false, however the shirts are real “Thom Browne” shirts that Supreme purchased in select colors, so in that sense the product is totally valid- just the PR hype is entirely misleading.

  6. Exactly, that’s what I am saying is fake…the collaboration. It’s not an “official” one. While the shirts are indeed Thom Browne oxfords that Supreme purchased, the idea of it being a collab in the sense that it is being advertised is completely false…therein the product as it is being presented is false.

  7. Just because Thom Browne doesn’t consider Supreme buying some of his shirts wholesale an “official collaboration”, he still would have had to agree to let them do it in the first place. I didn’t view this as a collaboration (in the design sense) anyway; why would it be? It’s still just a regular, unchanged Thom Browne shirt. His suits and shirts all come with his signature patch showing who it is for and when it was made. Where the interest comes from is the fact that Supreme (a streetwear brand) chose to associate themselves with a well-regarded menswear designer, which is unusual and in some peoples’ opinion, a pretty interesting idea. In the end you are still getting the same product – an exceptionally well made (therefore expensive) Thom Browne oxford shirt, co-branded and sold by Supreme. Whether that is worth the money or not is obviously up to you.

  8. The best way to categorize this piece is as a “custom/tailored” shirt for Supreme. Supreme came up with the Chambray theme and put it on a Thom Browne shirt. Plain and simple. Can that constitute as a collab? to some people it will to some people it wont’ depends on your perception.
