Nowadays copping Supreme for retail has become increasingly difficult as the brand continues to reign above all other streetwear purveyors.
One lucky Reddit user, cokeslurpees, managed to cop some blank Supreme tees in a Kmart for $4 cash each.
First off, how did Supreme tees even end up in a Kmart? They weren’t even in New York, the Kmart in question was in Idaho.
No one is really sure how this happened but this is how the theory goes, according to Vice i-D.
Supreme has never said where they get their tee shirts from so people suspected various brands like American Apparel. Since American Apparel was going under they sold their stock to Kmart.
Stores like Kmart usually buy out inventory from companies but always rip off the tags. For whatever reason they missed these tags and the rest is jawn history.
There’s a theory about what collection or line theses shirts could have been intended for but we can never be sure with the amount of tees Supreme has in its assemblage.
The yellow is believed to be either from the Mike Hill collab or their Nun shirt while the teal and dark green are thought to be from the Thrasher and Araki collabs respectively.
Theses shirts are one of a kind and with a history like that I wouldn’t be surprised if they had some sort of crazy value.
