Why so limited if they’re raising funds? sh!t sells out in a half hour, I’m at work in a meeting and end up ass out. I guess I’m not hardcore enough to cop this sh!t ????
Oh, the irony of your screen name at this moment...
(Sorry, homie, couldn't resist - you know I'm just pulling your leg, right?)
Ryan and Dave have already covered some key points, but let me expand a bit on those:
Firstly, Thes is still making all of this music and merch as a one man operation, which must be an insane amount of work! (I sure wish he could find someone he trusts enough to delegate and lend a hand with some of it at least...)
And not only that, but in addition he's going the extra mile and then some seeking out out that proverbial needle in the haystack to ensure
- the quality is outstanding and way above your average Fruit-of-the-Loom garments
- everything is produced locally and sweatshop-free rather than by uploading the designs to China and having the shirts etc. printed up there
- the retail prices and shipping costs are as low as possible
- everything is on hand and ready to ship before sales go live
If the bottom line were really mainly about making/raising money he could compromise or even cut a few corners and the result might still be good, just not up to Thes-approved levels of excellence. He's also going out on a limb to finance all of these ventures/products out of his own pocket rather than hitting people up hat in hand via kickstarter or something similar to get his ideas off the ground. In one of his recent interviews and/or IG post he's gone on record stating that a small part of him can't help but worry whether all the product will sell every time, which is why he's always blown away when stuff just flies off the shelves within minutes and that he's definitely not looking to intentionally undercut the demand on some Supreme-steez. Thes has continually expanded his operation (both the # of different items/styles and the amounts produced), he simply can't keep up with the rate the fans are buying it. (Most folks seem to buy multiple different hats, shirts, hoodies and whatever else they can get their grubby little mits on, too... It's a regular feeding frenzy.)
Lastly - and I can't stress this point enough - whatever slim profits Thes makes once all of the above is said and done (I'm dead sure they'd limbo comfortably below minimum wage if divided by the hours he puts in) are funnelled right back into making more music and more merch!
TLDR: Your best bet is probably to keep your eyes peeled for the next round of sales (take the day off, sneak off to the bathroom, ask a fellow fan to scoop a few bits for you if you absolutely can't be at a computer or on your phone at the time... ) There will be further opportunities to cop some goodies...
