For anyone looking for NicelyNice(c)-style pants, these attachment jeans on forward fit the bill. Roomy upper block, strong taper, stretch fabric. Sizes 4 and 5 in stock; 4 is about a 50, 5 a 52 (5 was too big for me). At 156$ they're pretty snazzy - denim didn't really seem any better than uniqlo, but if you're looking for that particular silhouette, there you go.

Or, and I am going to do this, get a gi bottom, and overdye it blue, then black.  That's what I am going to do.

Please let me give you my money I just want to look cool for internet people

I hope this is a gateway drug to you overdying a judo belt, twice, and wearing in lieu of a normal belt in life-settings like work and clubs.

I don't have a judo belt, but I have a few others I could use.

I'd have to get a white gi though. I've worn a blue one for the longest time.

I just have this sudden urge to see overdyed belts become a trend. So if someone could be the originator of such a trend, in this moment, i am very much enthused for such a reality and someone stepping up

i am sure this will pass quickly

What's a gi?
post #102415 of 109053

gi=kimono, it's the uniform for training judo or jiu jitsu. 

not going to lie I kind of was hoping for a fashion-y version of DBZ pants and boots that looks almost socially acceptable. 

...and I actually do have a black gi (shoyoroll) which has pretty impressive fabric on the pants. must resist...

Hi guys. UK resident here. This is a rant. lol. 'Firetrap'.....What the hell?!

 

Im the kind of person who doesnt like buying stuff that next man is probably going to wear. The internet has been a lifesaver. Ill explain.

Wherever you live, if you shop in your local High Street, its a guaranteed fact that a large % of men are going to be purchasing the same items, therefore theres a large possibility that when you're out and about in your local area you will see someone wearing the same garm you've purchased.

This, for me, is quite annoying. Yes the guy has great taste...BUT....its still annoying. lol.

 

This is why the internet has been a lifesaver. I can shop worldwide. The % of men wearing the same garms in my local area gets reduced considerable. I like. I like alot. lol.

 

Now I decided to do a bit of online shopping the other day and thought Id have a look at some old brands that I use to wear. One of the brands that I use to love back in the day was Firetrap. Back in the day it was mid range priced. Cool designs, good styling, quality workmanship, etc. Very nice brand.

 

So I decided to hit up their website. Saw a nice polo shirt, and a sweater. Thought, "sweet, ill have that". But before I did I decided to do a bit of hunting to see if I could get it cheaper.

So punch the letters into Google and find my results coming back with......'SPORTS DIRECT".

 

Sports Direct!!??? Wtf!

 

If no one knows what Sports Direct is. Its a sports shop that you will find in every single town up and down the country that sell sports clothing items for a lot cheaper than other sports clothes chains. Cheap, throw away consumables. They have these massive bags that you see the less fortunate using all the time. They have a place in the retail world, absolutely, but its very much the lower end of the market.

 

 

So when I see that Sports bloody Direct is selling Firetrap items my first emotion is confusion. What the hell is this brand doing on a cheap sports shop website? My 1st thought is, "theyve sold their soul" and then its just disbelief. So anyway I go on the site to see what else they're selling and low and behold I find theyre selling the sweater Id just seen on the official Firetrap website. My next feeling is....gutted.

 

Firetrap use to be one of those brands back in the day, for me, that was new, fresh, bold. It said something about you, about your taste, about your lifestyle.

 

Now its turned into a 2 bob note of a label that every tom, dick and harry can purchase without even knowing its history of its past standing in the UK retail sector.

 

Its.....cheap, its lost that respect and now its everywhere. 

 

Disappointed.....it goes to say I didnt purchase those items and wont be ever again....unfortunately.

You can buy death metal band tees at SportsDirect though, which is kinda neat.

Plus they have those giant mugs for when you're really hungover and need a massive tea.

Haha. Dont get me wrong, Ashley has carved himself out a nice portion of the sports retail market and what you mention are good. Ive shopped in there once or twice and got myself some real bargains.  But Firetrap was and is never a sports brand. Why muddle what was a mid range street label in with sports/throw away consumables. It doesnt make sense.

 

He's sullied the Firetrap waters. Its all well and good him buying the brand by the looks of it, but keep it as a separate entity imv.

 

Its like meat being sold in a fishmongers. Whats it doing there? lol.

1. Shit ,they have some ugly stuff.
2. High street brands get sold on the high street, so if you want to look different, don't shop on the high street.
3. Polo's are a no no on here.

Oooo, look at you, bit tetchy arent we today. :p

 

1) Horses and courses. I dont know how old you are but back in the day (1990's) they were an excellent mid range brand. Had some real nice garms.

2) Check my original post. I rarely shop on the High Street.

3) What are you, the polo bouncer? lol. The clue is in the thread title. Its not all about what you purchase but a random thought. That was a random thought. How a premium brand (per se) gets taken over and then loses its whole identity.

 

Peace :fonz:
