Sold Out

I am very sad about Threadless deciding to sell shirts at the Gap. One of the cool aspects of owning a threadless shirt was you had to know where to get it to get it. You couldnt just walk into a yuppie shop and buy one. Not that you can I dont think I'll be making anymore purchases here.


Will continue to hand out my zeroes, but you have gotten my last dollar threadless. I'm sure your Gap sales will well offset it. But you are a sell out now.

i mean, theres only 26 designs at GAP... And, Threadless is a business...

I filled this jar with my sympathy for you:

you do give out lots of zeros

loorrrd

I really think they won't sell out every design at Gap.

but in all seriousness, i don't see it as Threadless "selling out". yes, one of the unique things about Threadless is being able to get these sweet graphic tees that not really anyone knew about. great, that's awesome. but that's selfish. Threadless is a company, and in a perfect world, it would stay on Threadless. But they want to expand and share it with a larger population. More money, yes, but more exposure and reception is probably the end goal. They can't do that without partnerships. And it can't just be any partnerships, it has to be a popular label like GAP. Will I buy anything from GAP? Probably not, I can't even afford Ramen atm. But, its also exposure for the artists that come and submit everyday. Threadless is by no means a way to make a living, but instead a microcosm of the art and design world. #preach

Threadless will now go bankrupt because you stopped buying there shirts, thus leaving all the artists out on their asses, starving, shivering around trash can fires, eating whatever the dumpster behind 7-11 offers them, showering only when God deems it appropriate to have acidic rain. Soon, they'll start sucking dick for art supplies. But the art suppliers have also taken a hit, causing prices to skyrocket, thus meaning infinite more dicks that need to be sucked.

SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE?!

so..um, whats the big deal here exactly? i mean threadless was pretty big before they did a bunch of shirts with GAP anyway so i don't get what the issue is..it's not as if you can go into a gap store and buy all the shirts you can get from this site anyway.

I was prepared to come in here and say "There's a button that allows you to request a reprint of a shirt that's sold out."

But nevermind.

I used to think the GAP was a yuppie sell-out.

When I was in high school.

do you even read the blogs at all?? or even threadless' posts? Seriously? Or do you just bitch first?

The designs that Gap printed are JUST FOR GAP and not sold here. And in all honesty the design printed for Gap are for the most part more generic looking stuff that probably would not have printed for regular threadless comp

The "Threadless" stuff is still for sale at just threadless and their retail store. Although they've allowed smaller retail boutiques and web stores to carry their stuff for years... these smaller places never have a great selection though just whatever stock they bought.

So yeah there really is NO difference with what they're doing now than if Gap just did those designs themselves since the designs are exclusive to Gap. The ONLY difference is that there is new exposure for Threadless... the opportunity to make some money and help the artists get more exposure. Do you think the people who submit to Threadless are amatures? Some are.. some do it for the fun.. but MANY of them are professional artists and exposure like this is great for their resume and portfolio.

Think of the alternative to what's happening now. Threadless is less successful, they release two shirts a week, only on white, printed in one colour. Prize money is $200 and everyone laughs at you for wearing a shitty white see through shirt.

shirtflirt

not sure about yuppies, but GAP is synonymous with caucasian in my mind. GAP is capitalized to show the importance of that gap, between the white gap lifestyle and them. mwhahaha

shirtflirt

and i like how this dude isn't allowed to have an opinion but since he did, it's immediately ridiculed. i love our communal mob.

shirtflirt

haha qbf....that's definitely teh only alternative out there isn't it? ;)

I don't really know the perception of gap in the U.S. In the U.K., certainly in my experience, it sells a lot of kids stuff, a bit of guys stuff, chinos and the like. It's certainly not exclusive in any way, maybe a bit overpriced, but not much.

I just feel happy for Jake and the rest of Threadless that they are reaping the success of over 20 years of hard work. Especially in these times of economic instability.

Nobody outlawed him from having his opinion, though someone probably should have BECAUSE IT IS STUPID.

i guess so, toopersent. as long as there's a majority who think so then it has to be true.

Power in numbers, Majority rules. They are cliches for a reason.

shirtflirt

cliche's about "democracy" maybe

toopersent
toopersent profile pic Alumni

No, I'd say they are applicable to society in general.

shirtflirt

so then why doesn't the 99% have power over the 1 %?

Johnny Baboon
Johnny Baboon profile pic Alumni

tar and feather him. don't question threadless ever. EVER.

toopersent
toopersent profile pic Alumni

Becuase the 1% has the majority of the money. And Money = Power. I wasn't simply referring to headcount.

Though, interestingly enough, majority can refer to headcount. The Bolshevik revolution is a pretty great example of headcount overpowering bank account.

shirtflirt

but if a minority owns a majority of the money, then technically, it's the minority that is in power, and the minority is ruling. money doesn't do anything on it's own so i'm not sure how that is creeping it's way into this discusssion, other than trying to give more credit to your assumption, which i don't think it does.
