you do know eddie owns supreme LA right? supreme was suppose to open in sf but from what i heard they changed they mind on the location.
I didn't know that, but I still assume that James has control over the brand and not Eddie. Regardless of whether he owns the store, Eddie still messed up UNDFTD and Stussy by expanding, he should have known what would have happened if he had sold out and went for the quick buck, instead of keeping it limited and being like Supreme in terms of selling practically everything they sell, out and having a bunch of consumers fiending for the product. James is very good at what he does and imo will never sell out just like taps, NBHD, and Original Fake. And what's most odd about what Eddie did, was that he apparently looks to James for every business move he makes (I read that in an article), so why would he expand the brands?
Nigo made the same mistake with Bape.
Ubiq and I think Huf lost their Supreme accounts when the online shop opened, so it really wouldn't make any sense why a store would open in SF. I know they were planning one though. To be honest, I and many other people in the Bay Area not to mention the world (practically everyone on SS), really wouldn't want another US Supreme store opening.
