Well agreed, it's just my main point was that the reason they'd partner with a company like Qilo is that their future is less certain than a company like Chrome Industries, which has a pretty established brand image and target demographic (I think). The 'fashion investment' has more potential for their customers the smaller the brand.
But I mostly used your comment as a platform for my thoughts about people who kind of baselessly hate on the 'fashion' clothing that Drop offers.
If shitty clothes keep popping up, it's not because Drop is malicious and meditates on how best to screw their customers. It's because the number of people likely to buy them makes up for the initial product investment or because the profit margin is so high that it's a relatively low-risk investment for them (especially if they're hanging on to the left-over product). The blame is then on the people who use this website without knowing anything about fashion (which is perfectly fine) or value in clothing (which is also fine but this is more of a social than individual issue). It seems that Drop's goal is growing a platform for everybody to use, but that their current struggle is a marketing strategy that seems to focus more on specific communities, especially communities with lots of gatekeeping.
But I hope Drop is reading this bc I'd definitely be on board with some Chrome Industries drops...
