Just picked up another pair of detroit cuts yesterday only because the only shop here who carries them was trying to get rid of it before it goes mainstream. i also got the drapey twisty top. If you visit seattle in the next month check out riveted. Lex (owner) is basically giving their stuff away.
anyway, moral of the story. drkshdw is kinda selling out and its lame..
I am not as into clothing or fashion as you chrono. I know very little, I admit this... so I am going to ask
Why does it matter where an item is sold? Is it the garment you are after? What is the difference between buying Drkshdw online and buying it at UO? Why does it matter whether or not something is mainstream?

I don't know if the Dark Shadow line will be distributed nationwide but a mud encrusted jean probably won't fly off the shelves outside of NYC, and even then you can pick up pieces at Century 21 for the same price the diffusion line will sell at UO.
The store here in Omaha has very little in the way of the diffusion lines mentioned. A big table of Levis, graphic tees, shoes, and the occasional (rare) fred perry piece here and there... I doubt like hell the store will get more than a few pieces for displays and whatever online returns that turn up.
