ATA’s Humorous Review of Supreme’s Fall Winter 2018 Lookbook Part 1: Outerwear

If the guarantee at Men’s Wearhouse is, “You’re going to like the way you look,” the one at Supreme should be, “You’re gonna have a dope jacket.”

The best thing about the Fall & Winter line up is the wide range of jackets to choose from, and no matter which cut fits your lifestyle best, there’s no doubt you will stand out in a crowd.

If you’re the one in your group of friends that always ends up losing their phone, or wandering off wherever the crosswalk lights take you, this green jacket is for you. It screams, “HERE I AM!” and will reassure your friends and family that they don’t need to put a Missing Persons Report out on you. If somehow you really take the road less traveled and end up in the middle of nowhere,  you can rest assured that this jacket will keep you warm.

If you’re the one in your friend group who has a secret affinity for the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s and always wanted to recreate the scene of stealing children’s toys from the local Five and Dime, this pea coat is a dead match.

Or, if you’re just a big fan of The Denver Broncos, The Oklahoma City Thunder, The Baltimore Orioles, or The San Francisco Giants then this coat might be the one for you.

The new collection also comes with pieces that keep you looking casual, but with some extra goods on the back.  Take this classic letterman jacket: solid color combos, the logo to tout, but what’s that? A bone?

Flip me over, and BOOM: what I presume to be an earless, smirking bulldog.

The same goes for Supreme’s take on the army jacket: nice pockets, the definitive olive green color, but walk behind this on the streets…

Realize it’s been a minute since you’ve really appreciated John Woo’s 1989 film, The Killer. Make sure to set a note in your phone to check and see if it’s on a streaming service so you can really mess up your ex’s Netflix algorithm and preferences.

But let’s be honest with ourselves here: if you’re buying Supreme, it’s because you want people to know it’s from Supreme. That’s how they got away with literally selling Meta bricks with the logo on them, right? Or did you really just need a dope paperweight?

So why choose the low-key jackets you can wear to your 9-5 job when you could be the center of attention anywhere and everywhere you go with the pieces that follow.

This jacket says, “I make bold choices, and this is an artsy enough design that no, it’s not cultural appropriation, but if you asked me which Asian nation specifically drew their dragons this way—well honestly I couldn’t tell you—can we change the subject?” It also says, “this is a sick design that I can not commit nor afford to get tattooed on my body—so thank you, for the easy out, Fashion Gods.”  Conversely, maybe it just says, “I just saw Crazy Rich Asians!” Whatever message you’re sending to the world with your vibrations amplified by a loud jacket, know that it will get compliments. Nice.

But if that wasn’t enough attention for you, try Supreme’s casino faire! All the bright colors of Vegas with none of the American Spirit or Marlboro scents—because if you’re even considering buying this: you’re vaping.

But hey, maybe I’ve been making the wrong assumptions, and you’re actually someone who wishes they were invisible and could blend into daily life unnoticed while still staying warm. If this is you, check out the options you got below:

Old school camouflage.  Don’t stress about this not being the well-known green-brown design: it’s not like you were going into any jungles or woods after hitting the Supreme shop or getting your online order delivered to your 1 bedroom apartment. If you were to wear this on a night run, I would be highly concerned a driver might hit you—so yes, you can still blend in.

Or maybe you don’t want to be seen at the family reunion that’s being held at your Great Aunt’s. This is a great jacket-pant combo to blend into her old wallpaper, or maybe a matted rug under the dining room table. This way you’ll successfully dodge all questions about why you’re not married yet and scoffs at your dreams of becoming an MMA fighter.  At most, your grandmother might squint at your chest as she walks by you, then turn to another relative and ask if “GORE-TEX” is a good plumbing service.

Speaking of good old Grams, here’s a nice little jacket that you can wear to her house, plop down on her love seat couch against her quilted throw blankets, and disappear completely. She’ll search the house all over for you swearing that she saw you come in, as you stifle laughs in plain sight. Ah, you always were the best at playing Hide And Seek at her house as a kid, and now you can continue to do so as a full grown adult! Just try not to scare her too badly when you reveal yourself—she does have that heart surgery next week.

My Love/Hate Relationship With #Supreme - Photoshoot with @ymanibarbee @adore.eu and Essay

/
Like it or not, Supreme will always be the litmus for streetwear.  For old streetwear heads like me, there continues to be a love / hate relationship with Supreme.  About a year ago, I was driving home from work and one of the neighbor kids (usually dressed head to toe in Pac Sun or even worse, Dallas Cowboys gear), cruised by me, riding a Razor scooter, with a mohawk helmet, wearing a Supreme box logo hoodie.  I lost concentration and almost drove my car into the kids playing basketball in the driveway a few houses up.
