Supreme t-shirts are the brand’s most popular product for a reason: They represent Supreme’s style clearest. Supreme t-shirts are immediately recognizable for their minimalist designs, printed photos of celebrities, and embroidered “Supreme” white on red logo. There’s a ton of variation within their collection too, so the simplistic design-sense never seems too limited.
In addition to men and women’s t-shirts, Supreme has also designed iconic sweatshirts, jackets, and hats, some of which were created in collaboration with famous artists. The collaborative designs sell out fast, so if you’re at all interested in buying Supreme clothing, you should check out our store now before your favorites sell out.
What Makes Supreme T-Shirts Unique
The most unique quality of Supreme t-shirts is their ability to appear both classic and modern. Anyone with just offhand knowledge of streetwear brands can identify a Supreme t-shirt by its logo. The minimalist designs, which often incorporate pop-culture iconography, have been amongst the most popular streetwear for many years now. Today, Supreme is a part of the popular culture it pays homage to.
Supreme not only pays homage to pop-culture icons of previous eras, it also highlights icons of today’s popular culture. Actors, musicians, and other artists appear on Supreme t-shirts, usually in the form photos printed onto the fabric. Considering Supreme’s own influence on popular culture, this is kind of a big deal. Supreme is essentially determining who and what is popular right now by including them in their collections.
Supreme T-Shirt Sizing
Supreme changed their sizing for t-shirts a few years back, confusing long time fans whose usual sizes no longer seemed to fit quite right. A common complaint has been that the chest of some fans' Supreme t-shirts is properly snug, but the sleeves and body are a little too long. The new sizing hasn’t affected every Supreme wearer, but to ensure that your new Supreme t-shirt fits you well, here’s some information about the latest sizing.
The biggest difference between how Supreme t-shirts used to fit and how they fit now is that they’ve gotten slightly longer and more baggy, especially in the sleeves. Some shirts have also seen a decrease in collar size, meaning the collar will fit more snugly around your neck, however, this change is not consistent across all of Supreme’s t-shirts for men and women.
If you think your Supreme t-shirt is too large, you can shrink it using your washer and dryer (at your own risk). To do this, set your washer to its highest temperature and, after a complete wash cycle, immediately transfer your Supreme t-shirt to your dryer for a complete dry cycle (use default settings). Repeat the washing and drying cycles until you’re happy with the size of your Supreme t-shirt.
Supreme T-Shirt Pricing
Newcomers to Supreme clothing are often surprised by the unusually high price of Supreme t-shirts. In spite of their simplistic designs, Supreme t-shirts sell online at a far greater price than other streetwear brands. Here are some reasons why:
Due to high demand, Supreme t-shirts sell out FAST. So, for anyone looking to buy a new Supreme t-shirt, they will need to refer to third party retailers. Unfortunately, third party retailers raise the price, sometimes far higher than Supreme’s original price. A $40 t-shirt can cost $140! Worst of all, that $140 t-shirt could be fake. Supreme t-shirts have had many imitators over the years.
Supreme is known for collaborating with famous artists and even other streetwear brands for limited-time releases. Some of those collaborators include North Face, Dover Street Market, Vans, Nike, Stone Island, and Comme des Garçons. Demand for these releases is extremely high, more so than the already high demand for normal Supreme releases, which means that resellers can jack up the prices even higher than usual.
The Supreme name means a lot these days. The brand is instantly recognizable, has a rich history in streetwear, and a loyal fanbase. Many people buy Supreme t-shirts because of what they represent, more so than how they look or feel. This is nothing new to streetwear aficionados who understand that a brand’s authenticity means everything, and that authentic Supreme t-shirts are always worth the price, compared to other generic brands.
The high price of Supreme t-shirts has almost nothing to do with their quality. That’s not to say the quality isn’t high - Supreme t-shirts are made from 100% cotton and contain high quality printing and embroidery. Quality just isn’t as important to fans of Supreme because (1) Supreme t-shirts are always well-made, and (2) their style and historic value are more important.
What to Wear with Your Supreme T-Shirt
After finding the perfect Supreme t-shirt for your style, the next step is build the rest of your new outfit. Supreme sweatshirts are too iconic not to buy, whereas a Supreme hat can add a splash of color, or a distinct pattern to your overall outfit. Supreme bags and accessories can be useful utilities, while also being stylistically consistent with other Supreme clothing. And Supreme underwear and socks are simply comfortable. It never hurts to have more underwear and socks!
Combining different clothing to create a unique new outfit is part of the fun of buying streetwear, and Supreme completely embraces it. Supreme t-shirts, for example, will go well with other styles and brands due to their minimalist designs, but they can also be worn with other Supreme clothing for a more specific, on-brand look. It’s entirely up to you.
Supreme t-shirts are popular among young adults who are inundated with pop-culture of both the past and present. However, Supreme appeals to people of various ages, genders, and experiences. For people who were young adults in the late 90s or early 2000s, and who spent a lot of time around skaters in Downtown New York, Supreme may resonate even stronger than it does with young adults now.
Whether you’re a young adult now, or you were a young adult during Supreme’s inception, Supreme’s t-shirt collection for men and women is worth browsing. It includes some of the most iconic streetwear designs ever made, and a wide variety at that. To complete your outfit, you might also be interested in browsing their collections of hats, sweatshirts, underwear and socks, bags, and other accessories.
Due to high demand, many of the Supreme clothing in our collection may sell out, so you’ll have to order fast. Happy shopping!
