Read this the other day and forgot to post. If you were like me when you heard 90% of Bape was sold for something like 2.4 million, you wondered what the fuck happened. Remember when the colorful hoodies and shiny knock-off sneakers was all anyone wore for like one summer???! My how the mighty have fallen. Anyway, this dude that did his senior thesis on Bape in the year 2000 (*Conan voice*) just wrote a farewell letter, so to speak. He's the founder and chief editor of Néojaponisme. If you care, this is a good read. If not, forget I mentioned it.
