    Very true. But now i dont have to deal with resellers face to face. Like this one dude that sold me size 9 chicagos. When i met him he was lik 6foot 5. I was like why did you buy size 9? He said it resells well and he had 4 pairs. Wtf?? F..k them. Take thier money.

    So is the Jordan not touching stitching the main way to tell?

    The main way I tell if they're fake or not is the Frankenstein stitching that's near the lace hole, authentics have it stitched real tight together whereas reps do not
    then I look at the swoosh, authentics' swoosh is really big, sharp, cleanly made and sit higher than typical jordan 1s

    I agree with above. In the blue stitching, not only is it bunched together tightly as willy describes, but it also changes separation as it curves. It shouldn't be regular, consistent spacing throughout that zigzag. I hope the fake-makers don't see this and take notes to improve, ha.

    At first, I preferred the Storm Blues, but the more I wear the Black Toes, the more undecided I become.

    Those sweats are sick @echau. I saw them in person at DSM, peeped the price tag, and walked away backwards slowly.

    Yeah, I'd be like.. Buy these sweats or add a little cash and buy another pair of BT on StockX.. Would def go for the black toes since I don't see anything that really sets those joggers apart other than the tag on the left leg... But I also understand brand loyalty and can see myself paying outrageous money for something from a brand I really love.. Like BT's at resale.. lol

    The man @echau always finds deals, so don't be quick to assume he paid retail & laugh at him for doing so even if did.

    Also, NT is a place where most believe it's foolish to pay for clothing. Most people think shoes are all that is needed for an outfit to be great. :smh:

    For those sweats and other HE items, the fit/materials/quality/unique measurements often make the item worth paying for.

    Nonetheless, it's his choice how he wants to spend his money, but I personally think it's a wise decision to look good. :lol:

    Yeah, I think most of us here agree it's a wise decision to look good.. Is it wise to spend $600 on sweats? I just don't know.. If you can afford it, then just do it I guess. It is a subtle swag, for sure, which I like. I can't talk too much crap because I paid too much for some Nike/Lapstone Hammer mud dye sweats/hoodies (resale).

    Guys...most HE goes on sale 50-70 percent off. Sometimes more . Sometimes less.

    Not to mention discounts if you work at store or know employee on top of said sale price

    But 600 for TB swears sounds about right for their pricing if you look at their other items. Not a big deal but I also know how you guys dress and wouldn’t even dare pay $100 for jeans :lol:

    Personally for sweats my max would be
    $2-300
