No hate, but I'm just amazed you can't DIY that stuff lane.

Someone should start a MTM etsy gothninja basics shop.

you cannot seriously try to argue that the only reason that people pay $300 for a tshirt is because of the physical attributes of the shirt. rick ownes has as much brand cache as versace in a lot of places.

This LIMITED RUN of genuinely authentic heritage white cotton crew-neck t-shirts are proudly MADE OF THE USA of the finest cotton from some fucking place you've never heard of

It's obviously not the only reason.  But you're trying to argue that every single person that owns one of those is some kind of brand whore, which is stupid.

The asymmetric cut, and raw finish allow for the look I want. I like the drape and deterioration, a hanes t sits at a certain length I don't like, has a very boring feel to it, and doesn't serve any aesthetic purpose, merely a functional one.


I bought a julius shirt recently from fw11, and it has a extra long layer that sits behind me like a cape, by the time holes start forming the deteriorating is going to give it character, an individual look for me, its just a t-shirt tearing and forming holes, but its the same thing with worn shoes. People love those creases and tattered look on their guidis. They don't buy cheap shoes that look bad when they are worn, they buy something of quality that builds character as its worn.

I wonder this too. I actually went on Etsy to look for "u-neck tees"

I wonder what is the barrier to entry? Resource?

As someone who was shopping for goth ninja stuff this morning for the first time I def had a hard time believing the prices. Sure I paid $650 for my Aldens but that value proposition is completely different when comparing it to something in the ninja realm. Then I got to thinking that my current style might be a representation of what I feel is valuable and worth spending money, which lead me to reason that I shouldn't be buying goth ninja stuff because It doesn't reflect my beliefs. But I guess at some point your paying for the design no the materials

Anyone make resolable ninja shoes?

Why do you think about cost?

I think Lane has a point. If you are honestly curious and interested, even in love or want to change or add the aesthetic into your wardrobe, price should not set in any doubt.

Pick it up, love it, enjoy it.

because cost is is always a factor? ...

i'd be glad for your friend to make me shirts if he could, id buy them in bulk teger, I dont give a fuck about the rick owens tag as much as you think I do.
