    That lightning symbol looks familiar....does hysteric glamour use it? The military shirt I bought from Darkanimal has that similar symbol also.

    I want to sew that guy's hood shut so I don't have to see his idiotic expression.

    Also, what happened to good posture(oh god...I sound like my father)??

    I like his shoes though, and it is a kinda bad-ass tat.

    I used to be a fan of Nice Collective, way back when they were hawking their stuff on fabric8.com (check it out, btw. Some real duds, but they have an eye for emerging talent as well. Oliver Helden has some old, old stuff still there, I believe). Then, the DIYed military surplus designs were a little subtler, and they weren't so into the raw edges and appliques as they are now, and the construction quality was just much higher. Their cuts are still good, I'll give you that. But over the past few years, I've noticed that everything else has gone downhill, to the point that now I see it as a brand that figures strongly into the uniforum of the hipster American Jackass.

    Tight jersey to show off the pecs - check.
    Raw edges to show edginess - check.
    Appliques of lightning, owls (last F/W) and nonsensical serial numbers to show how DIY you are - check.

    BTW, there has been some wierd controversy about what an AmJack is. I say it's all about the obnoxious attitude coupled with a lack of knowledge or imagination. Yes, a lot of them (the fratboy types) seem to dress alike, but hey, there are also Wall Street AmJacks in Brioni suits and Hermes ties that they don't appreciate, and dudes in Nice Collective.

    They ended for me when I found out I could get a W+H hoodie for cheaper than theirs...

    And if you want a similar look, N.S.F. and Uppercut do better for less than Nice Collective does these days.

    Hahahhahahaha


    The coats are very reminiscent of a rackful of ones I saw at Nordstrom the other week, and the t-shirts look like every other vintage T on the market. The hoodie is somewhat intriguing, but at NC prices definitely not enough so to warrant a purchase.

    The pants are decent. I'm disappointed, but not surprised.

    Incidentally, Juicy has been stepping up their line a fair bit. Some of their hoodies, outerwear, and sportsjackets are pretty decent, and targetted towards say, the Barney's Co-op shopper - on the same level, I would say, as some Rogues Gallery stuff, and better quality than Nice Collective, from what I've seen. It would be sort of cool to see a Juicy piece in Odin or HTC or something. Something nice, of course, not the same stuff a Nordstrom buyer would pick out. Would sort of show a cool attitude, imo.
