there aren't too many grey motos out there still, just a very small handful, like 4 maybe - BrianSD, Vashin, Big Pun's, and the one APK had. I'm still looking for the right fabric to do a DB trench in. I know how I want to pattern it, I just don't have the perfect fabric for it.

Think it'll translate well for a female? The gf has been looking for a trench.

I don't know, details for trenches are somewhat unisex but cutting a women's coat of that length is much more sensitive. The chest and midsection obviously change, but the length is really arch as well. Plus, you can tend to make classic DB trenches really girly with a few touches - none of which would be going on my standard men's trench, obviously.

Late to the naming party, perhaps, but I'm a marketing consultant and do my fair share of product naming.

So, a few options of the top of my head:

Onus: While its traditional interpretation is synonymous with "burden," it could also be thought of as "on us" in the sense that TOJ was born from a committed collective "” one that's ultimately determines its own fate. Or, further exploring the "burden" concept, a group of people that uphold the ideals of style for those that do not.

Eponymous: One who is referred to as eponymous is someone who gives his or her name to something. Also reminiscent of "anonymous," which is perhaps appropriate for a group of people who primarily associate with each other by screename. (And again, not assuming the literal meaning of the word, but rather the image it evokes).

I also really like the idea of somehow using the prefix "epi" as it's Greek for "over" (see, "epidermis," or the outermost layer of skin that protects the human body). But "epi" is challenging, since it makes me immediately think of EpiPen. Need to give this more thought...

'Onus' is a bit too much like that one body part everybody has

Ha. Fair point. Plus, just remembered the brand Unis - too similar.

Like I said, off the top of my head...gonna keep thinking 'bout it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: briefcase, potentially fqhh.

I'd be interested in what Willy said, BDU and rain jacket, or really any type of all-weather jacket. Gore-tex style shell, trench/parka, non-winter fishtail, etc.

Re: Naming - I could see you going with a very Japanese name mash a la Uniqlo or Visvim. Uniqlo is basically "Unique Clothing" and it happened to work for the US market, too. Visvim is just word parts thrown together with an appealing sound a spelling.. Both gibberish in their own right, both striking sounds.

And stop with the crazy explanations. It's nice you're thinking abotu it but no one is going to care except maybe his family and dorks on message boards (derp). Acne is actually an acronym for "Ambition to Create Novel Expression" but no one gives a shit. Shit, most people can't say Dior Homme correctly.

EDIT: In before Pokemon, Desigual.
