Hmm I'm guessing you don't mean this one?

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a related note I'd totally rock a Future Days parka, love that album

Seriously, Jun, cue us in, what are you trying to do?

Equality vs. subjugation can be difficult to parse.

You sure you're not confusing with some other streetwear label ? (What kind of fashion mag puts guns on the cover though ?)

In any case, there's a difference between using guns to sell a certain image and taking inspiration from military designs (emblems, patches,... and/or technical features) although in both instances the suggested/perceived associated lifestyle is part of the attraction. And then, on a somewhat separate level there's the whole uniform thing.

I must be confusing it with something else. I'll keep my eye out for whatever it was that sparked that (mistaken) association in the first place.

Maybe you're remembering their gun wallet, or some of their ad images, above?

all those raf patched clothes now seem even more trite and commercial given his recent work

I hadn't seen those before, so it's not them; and I wasn't even aware they had a gun wallet. Kinda creepy to be honest, but that's not what I was referring to either. It's gonna take some digging on Tumblr for me to find what's floating in my mind.

This part where you wait for something to arrive is really hard. I don't know how you guys do it.

yeah this right here.

on a related note boulder co was hit with floods this week. bible type floods. it could start raining frogs.

i really hope spope and anyone out on the front range are doing alright cause sz is gonna want to post up in your living rooms for a shoot. but only if the water levels dont fuck with the clothes. cant have that. and since yall are probably evacuated anyway the timing is perfect. the worse your place was hit the better. just remember, its for a good cause.

That's actually rather subdued compared to those print suits DvN put out last season.
