homophobia.... is uncool. You cryin about a guy winkin at you? how many times have you made some chick feel uncomfortable in a single day? And throwing rocks at people's heads? Come on man? Are you retarded? You sound like those old racist white crackers who would damn near lynch a black man for saying hello to their white daughter. It's 2007 bro, not 1957.

LEMME clear some of this shit up. FIRST the 30 and OVER club members ARE the ones who SHOULD have stashes of that gear. not kids born in 1989. Second of ALL, pretty much everybody but KANE in that pic is like 21 or younger. Another reason why rocking that gear/haircut/stonewash jeans is bad... makes ya look OLD! YES having new ideas is the shit to be on, and I am pretty sure major just worked something out with those guys at CrazyWear. I'd rather see more people doing stuff, than people not having avenues to do shows or one day sales or whatever. I do believe in maintaining a certain level of integrity, lest your store shelves or show spaces be filled with crap... but those Crazywear cats are pretty young and pretty polarized from the reality on the streets and party scenes of major cities... so they are gonna grow, if we give em soil. Those guys need criticism and probably really want to hear what others think of their line. While I wont be endorsing the use of celebrity images on clothes without permission... It is interesting to see how much stuff they are churning out. I can't stand slogan shirts on a personal level, but some other people are really into it... so they have a reason and right to show and be carried. I can recall, not 2 years ago when if you had on some colorful shit, and I'm not talking this new L&D flashback stuff, I'm talking like a purple Rocksmith jacket or maybe a vintage columbia joint, maybe you had on early Futura Dunk Hi's from Nike Skateboarding, you were pretty much Captain Homo. Especially to the whiteys. Hood cats seem more adaptable to a little flashy shit. Obviously younger people in the tri-state are becoming more comfortable to wear colorful and fun fashions, a big sign that men and women are finally getting the conservative stick out of their asses around our area, even in the depths of the rural and ghetto areas. Very good news. So to me, that is a positive that allows me as a designer to feel less restricted and more encouraged. But here it is now, about 2 years after the Lafayette and Broadway street walkers have been steadily bombed with BS generic "all over" crap; from every boutique to every Dr. Jays and Michael K, and People down here are just getting it into it. Mostly via up against the wall, DTLR, even finish line at Van Dorn mall looks crazy fruity. and of course, the local indy shops. I blame Nigo. Basically, if you find yourself about 3 years ahead of the game, you wont sell direct right now in DC/VA/MD for the most part. You gotta go to the BIG trade shows, Agenda, Magic, Pool, ASR, B&B, etc... and go outside your local southeastern/mid-atlantic market. I think that was a big reason for the Nike SB explosion. Sandy Bodecker was pimping it ahead of the curve and NOW, every single shoe company makes super goofball rainbow puke and diarrhea direct from Rainbow Bright's asshole. At least with the EARLY pre 2006, SBs there was more of a rhyme and reason to the zaniness. But now it seems to be a corporate formula of just puking out any nutjob colorway. Probably the biggest culprits now are Adidas, Asics, and Reebok. Anyway... I have so much inside my mind. It's why I do Stock Exchange and hope to one day bring out DeadStock in its proper form. Maybe even get our Deluxe Apparel label going. until next time DC.

as it turns out the Crazy Wear event is one day only and Major is not carrying their line beyond the one day event. That is kind of cool how major can promote them... The flyer led me to believe Major is having this big party on their behalf, so this should be interesting.

whats up with Ben's Chilli Bowl?

Replied in VA/DC/MD, 2 Weeks ago in United States

oh man. those kicks he has laid out on the stairs tell the tale. he is about 6 months into the new fruity sneaker drops. I couldn't mess with that stuff. All those really cheesy slogans are really really bad. thanks a lot Maryland. hahaa Woot! PG county baby! [Image] besides. These kids in NY already played out the corny 80's look. but it's one thing when ONE group of like 10 kids is being 80's/loud African Salvage yard fashions/Fresh Prince around NYC. It's another when People start MASS Producing this crap from an Era of crumby fashion they weren't even born in.

that flyer is just REALLY poorly done. It doesn't seem like something MAJOR would endorse... much less sell. Also, did they PAY to use those various celebrity's images? I have grown REALLY tired over the last 3 yrs or so, of every start up just robbing and stealing images from whoever to make their profits. So I hope they got the licensing to do this apparel.
