Just got hot as fuck in SoCal so hoodies will have to be put on hold for another week or two. I'm sure some east coast heads can comment on it as their weather should be colder.

Damn, can definitely see the "influence" haha.

1. Shading/Lines in the eyes
2. Ear shapes
3. Sides of nose
4. Scrunches on noce
5. Whiskers
6. Eyebrows
7. Front teeth.

Good find though!

I don't see what's wrong with taking inspiration from another piece or brand. There's other brands like Supreme who blatantly just puts 'supreme' instead of the original text and people are fine with that.

ya there isn't anything wrong when a brand does their brand spin-off of inspiration. but look at those pieces... honestly, anyone could have done that. and in details, they don't give credit when it's due...
September 09, 2012 @ 23:45:30
brand is still dope af
September 09, 2012 @ 23:48:52
well, here it goes. we won't front that the design from cruel hand and our squad tee is strikingly similar, that is because that is where we got the idea from. but while we were designing our first drop earlier this year, we didn't anticipate for our brand to become of anything. it was just a small side project that we did in our spare time, just to see where it would take us. it wasn't a big deal.

but now with our second drop, we grew more, to the point that we think Ronin has the potential to become something bigger in the future. so as we grow, so will our responsibilities and ethics.

in regards to the term warrior division, as i've said in the first page, we were inspired by it's term, and decided to give our hellhounds design it's influence with our own twist, if that makes sense.

I understand this might be a disappointment to some of you, and we're sorry about that. But we truly are grateful to our customers and fan base that we have here at hypebeast, and we hope that you will still be with us down the line as we grow.

Many thanks
Jarvis

I mean no design is original so I dont see why everyone's making such a big deal..

everything and anything can be used as an inspiration.

Haha really? I'd say the vagabond tee is my favorite outta the 3 this release.

Also honestly every brand will eventually encounter a similar design or slogan. Influences can be clearly seen, but I don't see it as copy and pasting but rather their own personal take on it. Even cited from the first page.."we incorporate personality and a unique touch into everything we make in hopes to share our experiences and stories with anyone that is willing to listen." Maybe Jarvis and the crew are huge fans/influenced by Cruel Hands and Triumvir..we may never know, but I'd say they have executed it better then most out there that try to incorporate the whole Bushido feel.
September 09, 2012 @ 23:58:24
well, thanks for the inspiration. i ma go make my own clothing line. doesn't seem so hard afterall. anywho, who came up with the term biting? cause it is useless and irrelevant in this day and age.
