Addict Clothing (What Went Wrong?)

Addict Clothing, lil record for you down below and some feelings on the manufacturer

We have carried Addict garments sine we opened in 06, was our key brand at the time, the solution was refreshing, very good pricing, excellent graphics and the forward ranges appeared truly powerful.

Now you search at Addict and it appears a little bit stuck in a timewarp, looks to be seeking to tricky to duplicate Carhartt, and not doing a great career at it, Addict see on their own as large as MHI or Stussy.
They had the potential a several decades in the past to be there but they have trapped their charges up to promptly and by to much, no regard for who their buyer is just now, just to focussed on who they want their shopper to be in a number of many years.

For begin Addict used to do a great denim retailing at £50, now the equivalent jean is £75, and the charges go all the way to £125, for an addict jean, you should be acquiring a chortle. Foundation jackets that had been £75 are now £100, fundamental T’s were £20 now £25 and the list goes on.

SheOne produces fantastic parts of function and his have t/shirt label was excellent,addict have grabbed him and bastardising his operate, Sheone on thongs for Christ-sake, i have a SheOne print and generally been an admirer of his things, but Addict have develop into to reliant on employing his allover print on each conceivable garment.

SheOne referred to by Refill Journal as “a main cultural Artist”, a planet renowned artist who has been painting and creating graphics for twenty yrs, exhibiting in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Sydney, Singapore, Berlin and Milan. Al this means that it was an east decision for Addict Apparel when they approached SheOne to layout camo form them. “My first intention to generate a metropolitan defence sample, a camouflage that positively positioned the wearer in the society weighty landscape. The cloth really should functionality as a protective layer although concurrently emitting its silent graphic signal and feeding appropriate back into the present-day social climate.” SheOne what a lot more can we say camo summed up in two sentences.

They have shown a absence of creativeness and vision, with no a Jago, Sheone Sterling camouflage the range does not stand up, seems boring, unexciting & worn out.

From a retailer position of see i loathe it when brand names let merchants make it up and then commence undertaking item only out there on their internet site, direct to consumer, consumer assistance does not exist, except for James, hes the dude at Addict, man about city, hes received his own blog and employed to routinely telephone us and chase re-orders, but this season, 1 Get in touch with.

For future time, what do we have, far more SheOne camo and an overpriced selection, the a single startling matter in the vary is the baggage, definitely wonderful, some of the most effective luggage i have seen in ages, for absolutely sure i am going to get myself a couple of. For upcoming summer months, Addict are heading back to basic principles, which is superior news, much less of the moi pushed complex materials at £250 a pop and again to basics, that’s a lesson Addict will need to just take, again to the start, and hold it straightforward.
