Fear of God founder explaining the name:

 

"It wasn’t until I was in Northern California with my mom and dad, and we were doing a daily devotion, and one of the things we talked about were clouds and darkness around the Kingdom of God. For the first time, these ideas of darkness and God coming together felt really cool. Up until that point, Christianity was always kind of cheesy or light-hearted to me. It was never cool. There was always something about it that was a little corny to me. So I just had this vision of the depths of God and the depths of his kingdom, and how cool that was. So I thought it would be cool to do these religious T-shirts, but do them in a really different way."

Why not "Fear of something that doesn`t exist"?   :nest:

good names = can be made into a recognizable acronym. bonus points if it subsumes an acronym that non-fashion people use. I don't recall where, but I remember seeing RO in a completely irrelevant setting, and my first thought was Rick Owens. 

the only downside is when I go into an actual store I realize I don't know how to actually say the unabridged brand name.

 Label Under Construction always had a nice ring to me.. Cool idea behind the name and the acronym LUC has an ease to it when pronounced.

@1989thenumber i support your name choice

i mean it's unfair to say it "just came to you" or whatever because we have to thank Chuck D but still, i wouldn't have thought to use it as a name

Haha. Not really, it came to me in a flash of light.

But what about my name? Is it try-hard? I spent months working on it, I can't tell any more.

And try-hard needs an apostrophe. It ain't really one word.

Joking apart - yeah, nod to Chuck D. Opening line from one of the greatest hip hop records of all time.

In a loose attempt to stay on topic, it was an era that had a dramatic effect on my style as a teenager. That's a random fashion thought.

What was your vision? Have you achieved that vision since adopting your handle? Do you feel like you've ridden some clichés?

Dude, Mr. Tony is a great user name. It's both Lynchian and Tarrantino-esque.
