After 3 successful seasons of Making the Band, Diddy has the 4th on the air right now. I just got word he is dropping the music title for next season and has a show named "Raping The Brand". We all have seen the rip that Sean John did to Ten Deep last fall. Little did we know while that was being surfaced we were getting ripped. There happens to be a big coincidence that Diddy's personal buyer shops at one of our prestigious accounts in Brooklyn. The shopper has picked up a few BSKY pieces to date. Funny how one of his new tees is very similar to one of our old tees....

Damn Diddy!

this is what he did to 10deep a few seasons ago.

Ha ha I remember hearing that 10 Deep sent Diddy that shirt in a clothing package and he just stole the design right from them.

damn...sj did u dirty...have u tried contacting them?

but on the other hand I've seen that design on some hood shop's shirts, and on a new era hat...so while it sucks it's one of those things that would be very hard to legally pursue...

and lmfao @ the 'raping the brand' comment haha

You mean you are the only one that have done the freshner shirt?

I used to see em all the time when I was 11 years old.

and the last of a dying breed... come on now that's everyone's quote.

No one. I mean NO ONE is original anymore.

theres no doubt that NOTHING! is new under the sun. Im not that upset nor am I surprised. I actually thought it was kind of funny. Im also anxious to see whos next.

True say that design maybe simple/done/lame it was one of those ideas that came about organically and worked.

So what. Bottom line. Not like someones who buys Sj is taking money out of the pocket of 10Deep.


10 deeps came out first and probably sold entire stock. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

when a streetwear or "underground brand" bites the mainstream brands, no matter how subtle or blatant, no one says anything. when it's the mainstream brands copying the streetwear or "underground" brands, it's a crime.

nah not true. we've heard our share of comments about the Crooks/Versace, 10Deep/LV, The Hundreds/Starter etc etc....

Its just that the mainstream brands have more resources than any indie label. Im not going to front I use mainstream labels as a fuel for inspiration. Things they do that I wont do or things they wont do that I can. Not do exactly what I do. I wont do exactly what they do cuz then whats the sense of creating, just accept whats available on the market.

i think he was referring to the fact that even the string is identical, not just the fact that its simply an air freshener.

Wow sue these nuckle heads. Really thought its most likely just the fault of someone in the design department. Not necissarily a higher up.

if anyone should be sueing its the car air freshner company since everyone is knocking off their artwork....

either way there is nothing to really sue on....nobody has a trademark....nobody has a copyright.....
