Title: NOAH
Post by: Scott Chegg on October 15, 2020, 12:23:16 AM
I donít really know much about this brand but it appears to me that itís a fake skate brand and more of a fashion/hypebeast brand.
The video was sick but not even Kyota and Bobby dekeyzer can get me to spend £60 on a regular T-shirt with a dumb name on it. What do u guys think? Has anyone actually seen someone skating in Noah gear?

its made by supremes former creative director.
listen when it comes to clothing fuck skateboarders. trust people that know fabrics not some highschool dropouts investing money in printing tshirt in china with their name on it.
it amazes me that people think spending 60 dollars on a nice shirt youll have for years is the most outrageous thing to do when at the same time grown ass men play 60 dollar videogames or buy beer and alocohl for the amount of that many regulary. this isnt a 600 $ dollar tshirt, its a 60$ decent quality shirt.
read an article in the last days where they tested gucci lv and other fashion brand shirts and talked about whos quality was the best and the most decent one was by Noah. even though it costs like 5 dollar in prdouction i dont care.
take my money.

I don't have any problem with it. It's been around for a minute.

The owner worked high up at Supreme for 15+ years. He still skates and even had a couple of clips in the video.

They make almost everything in the US and the shit is expensive to produce and then sold at prices people like myself, and most skaters, absolutely scoff at. But it's their thing and it works for them, and people like buying things they know were ethically produced onshore.

I like how they support younger guys in the industry and let Greenberg & Mark take all creative control of the videos and media output and the whole skate side of things. They pay everyone on the team really well from what I've heard, along with covering everyone's trips to NY to film for the video.

I'll probably never be in the financial position to buy their clothes but I'm backing the way they're going about entering the skate market/scene. Having a superteam obviously helps. Their approach is infinitely better than throwing one cool guy in your clothes and buying a double-spread ad in Thrasher.

never in the financial position? wtf are you guys talking about. im just earning the amount of money to make a living. sometimes i dont have money at all and a 60 dollar tshirt or 150 dollar sweatshirt cant be this hard to get if you really like to. just get your priorities set may be? i mean wear whatever you want and dont bother what people think and if youre broke there are way better alternatives but 60 dollars isnt that much money, even the crackhead on the streets will have that much by the end of the month

Although I think their designs are hit or miss they are one of the only streetwear brands that focus on using quality fabrics, not using shitty factories, and making sure their employees top to bottom are paid a decent amount. 

When was the last time you seen anything remotely related to skateboarding this transparent:

Same. If I want a generic plaid/collared shirt, they've plenty good ones without logos, for never more than 10 bucks. Supreme on the resume isn't appealing either.

I own a hoodie by them and its the best quality hoodie I own. Will last me years. I don't want to wear some shit made in a sweatshop in bangladesh. I want ethically produced, environmentally minded shit that I look good in. Yes its expensive, but it will last for years more than your h&m flannel will.

Noah has been around a while and has always been a little bit involved in skating. They've done frog gear i think a couple of times. I have a noah frog hat. their general aesthetic isnt really my bag but their runner hats are my favorite hat to skate in. super cool and breathable, doesnt get all gross when you sweat in it.

Agree. I didnít know much about Noah, but after reading up on their focus on quality fabrics, production and labour, itís growing on me for sure. With Supremeís Carlyle financing itís not a hard choice where to put your money for quality street wear. Each to his own. The logo aint great, but Iíd pick up a sweater or rugby on special. Supreme is just trying too hard itís just a mess to me.

The times i've seen people wearing Noah in the wild, usually their outfit is alot more mellow/modest than that of your average supreme/bape hypebeast guy. The dudes i've seen wearing Noah dress similarly to that of Bobby dekeyser or Casper brooker for example, whereas usually when i see someone wearing supreme, its usually very logo/branding heavy product paired with tight ripped jeans and some Yeezys as well as some heavily branded Bape product

Why would fashion designers pull this crap?
Pleated mother fuckiní trousers?
Again?!?
Please, child; Iíve lived through them shits twice already & still remember what a fuck up it was the prior time around, so donít even try to bring me that tired ass noise.
Besides, if youíre fortunate enough to have a good one, why not support ďyour localĒ by buying one or two of THEIR shirts? Isnít that the droning mantra repeating in SLAPís collective mind of late anyways?
Having rambled on thusly, I am a proponent of buying quality gear & keeping it for as long as it lasts.
I have some Filson jackets that I will likely be able to wear for the rest of my life & then pass on to my kids, so I get it, when it comes to forking over a little $omething extra.
And as Sus pointed out,
i'd rather buy a noah shirt knowing that the upcharge is because its made in the US and is made with better materials than buy a Supreme tee for the same price that's printed on a triple a tee or gildan tee that was made overseas
But seriously, quality or no, dude isnít going to get Ęent one of me by running high waisted, pleated fronts & shits like them. Lost me with that.

I think my statement may have went over your head a tad.  Paying $60 for a t-shirt is like paying $125 for a deck. A skateboard is a mode of transportation. That shirt is just gonna make it harder for you to pull a ďhey misterĒ down at the lq. Someday when youíre older than 14 youíll understand.

Not gonna lie, that Mondrian fleece that Gonz is wearing is actually pretty dope, but I don't touch anything supreme because of Carlyle group.
That dude at the end of that vid needs a new mask. Imagine if your dick fell out of your underwear every two seconds, you'd buy new underwear.

In terms of quality and cost, I pretty much live in the Carhartt k87 pocket tee. I have a bunch in different colours. There's two white ones that I've skated in for two years, taking many falls, skidded ten meters down a parking ramp on my back in one, grazed my shoulder and hip real good, and I can't even tell which tshirt it was. That's quality, and they're half the price of a branded skate tee printed on gildan or triple A, at least here in my country.

americans dont get sarcasm i see. im not 14, it actually would be cool to be that young again.
it fills myself with so much joy to buy and wear good clothing. wearing a nice fabric with a good cut is such a good feeling.
there are also plenty of those in second hand shops too. dont just buy expensive shit.
i actually look and feel what fabrics theyve used and how they spun it.
i dont own a car, i only ride the train or bike.
and i dont have lots of clothing. i have a few shirts and a few sweashirts.
whenever i really want one i get it when i get my paycheck, like everbody has their hobbys.

I was hyped for a Noah Salasnek thread.  How disappointing
Noah Salasnek was an amazing skateboarder and snowboarder.  RIP

the stuff on there website all looks pretty nice. i love minimally / non branded clothing, with a clean aesthetic. i would definitely wear if it were priced more appropriately.

imah just stick to Brixton / Carhartt shit

u wont catch me paying over 100$ for a flannel/sweater anytime soon.

seems like a cool brand tho. if they wanna keep skateboarders as there main consumers, i would recommend them dropping there prices. however it looks like there trying to appeal to a more "fashion focused"  group of people....which is cool too....

that makes no sense bro.

carhartt fabrics porbably one of the best in that price area. supreme has some good things too,
but i wouldnt buy anything that doesnt keep you warm.

h&m got some very good heavy cotton shirts here in europe too.

i remember buying a 35 euro lrg shirt one time and after like two washes the back of the shirt was shorter than the front. looked totally ridiculous.

so i think the dumbest thing you can do is buying a skate shirt for like 30 dollars because most of the time its a gildan shirts, bad quality and cut printed with a logo. but i think thats dying out too, like i havent seen anyone wearing like a almost tshirt or a grizzly griptape tshirt in a while because we dont have shit like zumiez.
i think what are even far worse are companys like fourstar or matix, that ONLY are specilzied produce clothing, but are making bad quality stuff for medium high prices. like parents paying a little to much for their kids and getting too less.

i used to beg my mother for buying skate clothing that wouldnt last a year. so i kept buying low price non skate clothing for a better price and never returned to mid price skate clothing companys. i rather either wear 5 dollar tshirts and 300 dollar jackets or a 50 dollar tshirt and a 300 dollar jacket than a 30 dollar tshirt and a 150 dollar jacket that looks shitty in retrospect and will only last 1-2 winters

since im grown now i have split my wardrobe into 5 dollar tshirts and carhartt shirts for work and skating and higer priced clothing for when im going out or having a dinner.
id never buy anything for the price alone and wear it in the wrong context just to flex. thats dumb

Support Noah 100%. Haven't pulled the trigger on anything but definitely plan to in the future.  Source some of the best fabrics across the world, tons of US made goods, try their best to be sustainable and transparent about it, supporting skaters, dope collaborations with The Cure and Depeche mode.

I'm a little late to the convo here but I remembered seeing these cost breakdowns that Noah put out a while back. inserted below

I used to work in menswear design for 2 major surf/skate/lifestyle brands in Australia that were producing their product in china/india/bangldesh for stupid cheap prices and not focusing on quality or the working conditions of the factories or their staff. I even visited a few in Guangzhou and most of them were not pretty.

Out of India you can get a t-shirt made and landed in Australia for around $4-6 and china around $5-7. Then they sell to department stores/skateshops etc for around $20-22 per piece. then the shop sells it to the customer at around AUD $49-$59. all that for rubbish quality that wears fast, warps, fades in the was etc.

That why when I look at a brand like Noah I can back it. they're doing things right. I'm not a fan of the nautical shit but the simple stuff is nice and you know its made well and all the people involved in making the garment from start to finish are getting a fair wage and working conditions.

This makes me feel much better about the gore-Tex gear I buy to be warm and dry when outdoors and it is below zero without wind chill index. 
Title: Re: NOAH
Post by: fs180 on October 17, 2020, 10:11:34 AM
thats what i was saying. dont buy this stuff that is not keeping you warm and is expensive.
gore tex is definitley the way better option in this price bracket, but its cool that they show and break down how the price is being put together.
if youve got the money, buy it, im not going to hate on you. id much rather buy the leather the cure jacket because its real leather and shouldnt be much pricier. always check the fabrics, sometimes theyll put all jackets at almost the same price even if they have big differences in fabrics.

I don't have any problem with it. It's been around for a minute.

The owner worked high up at Supreme for 15+ years. He still skates and even had a couple of clips in the video.

They make almost everything in the US and the shit is expensive to produce and then sold at prices people like myself, and most skaters, absolutely scoff at. But it's their thing and it works for them, and people like buying things they know were ethically produced onshore.

I like how they support younger guys in the industry and let Greenberg & Mark take all creative control of the videos and media output and the whole skate side of things. They pay everyone on the team really well from what I've heard, along with covering everyone's trips to NY to film for the video.

I'll probably never be in the financial position to buy their clothes but I'm backing the way they're going about entering the skate market/scene. Having a superteam obviously helps. Their approach is infinitely better than throwing one cool guy in your clothes and buying a double-spread ad in Thrasher.

This is a great take. Never understood people who complain about the prices of clothes. There are a million companies that make affordable clothing, find what you like and what works in your budget.

I think my statement may have went over your head a tad.  Paying $60 for a t-shirt is like paying $125 for a deck. A skateboard is a mode of transportation. That shirt is just gonna make it harder for you to pull a ďhey misterĒ down at the lq. Someday when youíre older than 14 youíll understand.

hes not in highschool but he acts like it if he thinks a skateboard is still for transportation porpoises.

baker decks in europe cost 75 euros and so do many other american brands like habitat, aws. thats 88 dollars.
skating is expensive as shit, those decks have good wood and a nice shape, but get soggy after 1-2 months. yet people wont understand buying things that will last years.

Heres a life hack for ya, Let the people with the cash buy the shit brand new and sell it when its 3 months old. I have a noah zip up hoodie I got for $75 shipped which is no more money than your average skate brand hoodie. Quality is way higher and i see that shit priced reasonably on depop all the time. You dont have to pay $60 for a tee shirt to reap the benefits.  That said I fuck with noah and I think their business model is something skateboarding has been lacking

$76 is an awful lot to be paying for overseas manufacturing. A garment simple as that shouldn't be more than maybe $45 sew, in NYC. Rich kids pay more though, factory managers can smell them coming a mile away. Interesting to see people's reaction to reading these kinds of breakdowns.
