Supreme is wrapping up a few collections but not a few banknotes this week. As the F/W season dies down Supreme is finally giving us the polarizing Scarface Embroidered Leather Jacket, that many expected to drop with the rest of the collaboration in Week 8. The jacket is rumored to be extremely limited with quantity predictions in the hundreds. The scarcity of items in this week’s drop means that everything is going to fly off the shelf.  Other than the screams of joy from bombing it down a hypebeast hill with the Supreme Sled, this week is pretty quiet.

Let’s get it…

Bangers

As the final piece from this season’s Arabic Logo collection, the Neoprene Facemask is this week’s most anticipated item. In the windy parts of the world, this multi-cultural protection from the elements will complete any ninja winter fit you have at the ready. We haven’t received a neoprene face mask from Preme since F/W ’14, and since then this piece has been bootlegged like alcohol in the prohibition. Estimated retail to look as badass as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises is a modest $32.   

Sleepers

Not much to sleep on this week as the drop is nearly dead without the Cash Paperweight. Resellers will be clamouring to get their hands on whatever they can.  The Embossed Logo Hooded Sweatshirt is a nice subtle piece to round out your winter wardrobe. The branded hood is the only portion of the piece that might make a jealous onlooker feel some type of way, but the clean solid colors make this an easy garment to layer during the cooler months. Go true to size for a snug fit that will allow for shirts and jackets to be worn over the hoodie and size up for a baggie look that will make this your everyday outerwear. Estimated retail is $158.

Duds

The Supreme Cash Paperweight is NOT  dropping this week. “Technical Difficulties” have delayed this much-anticipated accessory for yet another week. The question still remains, will this lucite feature a stack of blue notes that will prove that Supreme is the true OG reseller that can sell your money back to you, or will the “paper-weight” have some assembly required? Either way, seeing products like the Scarface Leather Jacket, sled and now the paperweight being delayed is not a good look for a brand trying to justify a Billion dollar evaluation.

How to Cop

Have your Twitter fingers ready before your local Supreme drop time for online acquisition.

If you’re going for an in-store drop you’re probably reading this in line already.

Happy Hunting.

NEVER MISS A RELEASE AGAIN
