SHOW ME, because I've ben checking since forever, I remember pieces released etc.
All you have to do is look 3 pages back and tell me the gucci stuff in that big post there doesn't make you cringe. It's all gaudy and tacky and screams attention !!%*%. I HATE people that buy "high end" stuff just for the branding and justify it as being hot. I'm much more happy with a hermes wallet or john lobb loafers no one well recognize than the monogram all over tacky look at me, i'm wearing a name brand! crap. And if you claim to work in fashion and don't notice the difference between gucci then and gucci now, no pics i find you will help you. RFX is right in that gucci simply puts out so much that they can't miss all the time. Get drunk, close your eyes, and throw enough darts and sooner or later you'll hit a bull's eye. The only place that the louder=better argument seems to work is in the hood. I never see it anywhere else.
Yeah I'm just not buyiong NOTHING you saying. You talking about an era of gucci that passed, and realy that only speaks of the fake stuff from i. Its funny you bring up tom ford because he went the craziest with the OVER the top branding stuff. Like 98'/99 the had mongram canvas rain coats, jogging suits etc. You are attibuting allthat with "the hood" but really rapper are what reall brought gucci back 2-3 years ago, especially to people here, because 90% of the gucci in here is green/red stripe detailed stuff which the rappers jumped on IMMEDIATLY. Gucci has only released like 4 or so mongrammed clothes items in the last few years, and all with tonal prints anyays.
The only pictures you referenced are like 90% accessories, all clearly bought by homie to have the most showy gucci #*#! possible. Thats HARDLY representive of the clothes gucci has put out lately. All dude got is two shirts, one being the most hideous polo gucci ever did, and the other being a fairly reasonable piece. But honesly if thats what you are determining from its like you're just out of bounds from jump street. You clearly just talkin about straight accesories
I'm sorry the whole "if you don't get it you dont know" #*#! anit gonna work on me because I have gucci #*#! from 99 and now and there ain't no difference. You really just proving my point and contradicting yourself. Cool you can name drop some plain old shoe brands that charge high prices, but that ain't SHOWING nothing. You talking aout such a DEEP familiarity then show something. If it was so STYLISH and QUALITY where its at, you should stil have it. And beyond that without their branding LV and Gucci wouldnt be gettin no love. Even the people here speaking AGAINST the branding have collections of gucci sneakers with it blaring out.
whatever though, I know your next move, typing and NOT A SINGLE picture to prove nothin... aight cool
With clothes and the ratio, Gucci just has too much clothes released that doesn't appeal to me, like real short shorts and shirts and jackets that are a bit too feminine. LV has some stuff liek that too but not as much. Like you said, they make 3 jackets season or a year and out of those 3 jackets, I will mos tlikely wear all 3. While with Gucci, out of the 15-20 jackets they make, I'll probably only consider wearing one. I also believe that it goes with quality as well, less clothes, the more focused they are at making it at a much greater quality. This is also synonimous with the high price and never going on sale, they do not have to compromise making it cheaper to cover the clothes that go on sale.
I dunno, I still dont agree. I think it also plays into the fact gucci makes like 3 more collections a year then LV. LV makes two pairs of swim trunks a year and gucci makes a whole cruise collection with like 5 pairs of euro swim trunks. It wild you say you like the LV jackets more, then why you own so many more gucci jawns? Cool you'd WEAR all three styles, #*#! I'll find a time to wear em if they just there, but why you BUYIN the guccis? I'm not gonna knock LVs quality, but again I just don't see whats so amazing about some SUPER DUPER DUPER plain jackets.
and RARE23 dudes frontin, it aint even worth addressin his opinion on that. Gucci ain't on no super crazy branding #*#! nowadays anyways. Dude would probably pass a kidney stone tryin to convince you a 4 millimter green/red ribbon on the epulet of an all navy blue gucci military shirt washorrendously over branded. Truth be told most green/red stripe gucci aint even OVERBRANDED, people are just now hypersensitive to it now because t wome of the most desired clothes from the last few years
