If there’s one thing we know about kids these days, it’s that they love Supreme. Wait, most people don’t know that? Okay, well, go with me here. Supreme is a skateboard brand that launched in 1994. The type of people that buy Supreme are hipsters and kids that read Frank Ocean’s ‘zine and lose their minds over Yeezy releases. Supreme has become a cult sensation due to their “drops” which differ from larger retailers who release all of their clothes at once. Supreme, however, does weekly releases of small batches of their clothing and accessories. It creates hype. It creates urgency. And it creates a robust market for resellers.
An awkward situation unfolded today when one Supreme-seeker found a hat online that apparently looked *quite* similar to a hat that was stolen from him at a music festival. When he went to find more information about said hat, he found out that the hat being sold online was actually his hat. The conversation between the seller and the victim was gold, and thankfully, it was also documented on Twitter.
The most absurd part about this entire situation, though, might be that the hat was selling online for £12,245. If you’re dumb enough to pay that much for the hat, you deserve to have it stolen from you. Fortunately, it never came to that.
“I’m not gonna lie to you, I took it off someone at reading fest when I was waved,” the seller told him. I assume “waved” means under the influence of something (and it’s a phrase I’m immediately adopting for myself). Luckily, the theft victim found humor in the situation and clarified that he was solely asking because it was his hat. In the feel-good story of the week, the hat is now being sent to the original owner free of charge.
See? There is good in the world. Even if the thief was a “cheeky fucker.” .
