The original Shark Hoodie was so next level, and unlike anything anyone had ever seen. In fact, after this came out, everyone else in the game started dropping full zip hoodies with some crazy shit on the hood. It got way out of hand. Still, no one had the level of quality that Bape had.
Part of the appeal of the Shark hoodie was how limited it was. Even though the demand for them was through the roof, Nigo kept the drops few and far between. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. Hong Kong’s I.T, Bape’s current owner, throws a shark face on everything.
