I know the weed socks come from Korea, HUF has a partner who handles the money side of things and could care less about american made anything. Also their warehouse holds dudes from 10am to 10pm some days with few breaks and any dispute to that will lead to them being fired because they are paid under the table, and could care less about anyone but the dollahz. I've heard it happen to a couple dudes that worked there

This is what I hate about SLAP ; I have no idea who you are, you have no credibility in my eyes, yet, I believe you and now I'm bummed on HUF...




Just looked in my closet, between 3 shirts I bought all from the same skate shop, one was made in China, one was made in Mexico and the other was made in the US.

HUF is now literally "made with blood, sweat and tears"

Aaannnd naive people's money down for so-called american made clothes/shoes.
When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things.

HUF = the brand

Huf = the person

No shit Sherlock but when your name is on a brand and you happen to be adored by pre and post pubescent dudes then one would expect some level of quality.   But then again he is just a dude who rode a skateboard.
No prepubescent dudes know or care who the fuck he is.  I once saw a bicycle with the name Tony Hawk on it.  I didn't even have to get within six feet of it to tell that it was a complete piece of garbage.  But I suppose "shitty" is a level of quality, and that is exactly what I expected.  So maybe you're not completely wrong.

And his name is Alan, not Sherlock.

Sounds to me like he's saying that the naive part in this whole thing is believing any company that says their product is american made when in fact it isn't american made.

i'd like to see a trend of hilarious labeling. like "shirt was made by dwarf slaves on an offshore oilrig located in international waters. have a good day, sir!" or "proudly made in the usa/eu. just kidding, of course it's made in china, dumbass."

was it ripndip that had that tag saying "made in the usa by happy immigrants"?

I think they had a sweatshirt that had the washing instructions as "don't".

Wait, wasn't a lot of Huf gear made in the USA initially? I remember when they would have drops and everything was kind of hard to get since it would sell out quick.I was pretty sure a lot of the gear was USA made, or at least the five panels.

Do they make anything in the USA still? Does anybody have any O.G. gear that's USA made?


edit:


just realized, 666th post so here

They still make five panels and snapbacks in USA, as well as a couple pairs of jeans. I think all of my HUF clothes [tees, jeans, hats] until the past two years are USA made. After they started blowing up, I noticed a lot of tees were made in Mexico.

I still buy their shoes but not their clothes. The only incentive for paying $30 for a tee was the fact that it was made domestically.

If it's unintentional then yeah, that's messed up. On the other hand, I had a pair of Consolidated Chinos in the late 90's that had a tag that said something like "made in a sweatshop by poor hungry kids." I appreciated the honesty and man I loved those pants.
