from 10 Deep

THE FEEDING FRENZY BEGINS... So a few months back, Puffy had his personal buyer come through the office pick up some gear for his trip to Miami. We heard he was strutting around wearing the Red/White Bully Rugby on Making the Band. Next thing we see is him in Nylon wearing our Knuckle Up jeans, with the brand being credited as Sean John. No matter, accidents happen, mistakes are made. Puff was running around repping for The Deep. We thought that was cool, but then we see THIS (NOTE: this was one of the shirts he'd picked up earlier).


Man, Puff! We thought we was folk! Let it be known that there are sharks in the water! Let the feeding frenzy begin!


SMH!!

ehh, it's really a matter of "WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND"

When a big named brand bites, there's mass hysteria over it and people calling it a "dirty" move, but the irony is that when all these smaller (hypebeast-type) brands do it, it's noted as "cool" or "ACCEPTABLE."

I mean come on, look at all these "copy and paste" type brands and whatnot.

I'm NOT saying 10 deep is guilty of being this type of brand or deserves this to happen, but OVERALL in the whole "STREET WEAR" scene, shit like this happens all the time. But now since Sean John bites, everyone gets wild.

Something's not right with that

If 10 Deep, Hundreds, Mishka, Might H, etc. did a SJ graphic and slapped their logo on it people would be mad too. If SJ wants to take an idea and flip it, cool but dont bite shit.

I don't know, Dum. I'm kind of skeptical on that. If anything, I think people would be moreso angry or shocked at the fact that those kinds of brands are even associating with SJ or catching creative ideas from them, rather than being mad at them for just biting SJ. Cause I don't think they'd care, I bet a commonality amongst responses would be, "Oh well, who cares, Diddy is rich anyways"

I feel the main reason why Puff's clothing line is held at a different standard is due to the fact that they are at a higher level. They have the funds to get new ideas and have designers etc. So for them to bit as blatantly as they did is different than if a small time line did. You are put to a higher standard when your company makes millions as compared to companies that make far less.

Plus SJ sucks anyways.

I've been down with 10Deep crew for some time now but this comes as no surprise - this is exactly how the fashion world works. The big commercial mainstream guys bite from the smaller cutting edge guys. This is pretty fucking blatant, but imitation is the highest form of flattery after all. Puffy shoulda just invested in 10Deep or asked them to do designs for him but he's a business man first, and a really sucky emcee second. This is the same as his approach to sampling in a way...

But swaggerjacking is the name of the game...just look how Triumvir are eating off of BAPE's success...

10 deep should just bite 50's title and come out with a shirt that reads "New Breed" like that dvd 50 had a while back.

I understand the recycling of concepts...thats to be expected on every level
but they didnt even change up the lay-out. Im surprised they used a different font. If they'd used the same phrase, but laid it out differently, I woulda shrugged my shoulders and kept it movin, but this is wrong.

I saw this shirt not to long ago, I think it was at department store at the mall but I really can't recall. It really doesn't bother me though...now if I started seeing a bunch of "urban" brands doing it now that's a different story. I can see it now, the new Enyce paisley or Akademiks using the Murko mascot.

10 Deep should make a T shirt to retaliate the SJ bite like a shirt that says "Swagger Jacker" in the Sean John script.
