    Seriously?

    And to Kiya- I've seen pictures of some other Buzz Rickson stuff that looks just phenomenal, will you ever be carrying their outerwear, especially the USN jackets?


    Yup, last season we had half the line but we never put any of it online.. This season we're putting some of it online. We'll have the black M65 in two weeks.. we'll have the Navy peacoat from Buzz Rickson on friday, we'll have the gloves next week, MA-1 in November, and more..

    Why do you always post nothing but crap full of extremely tired internet humor crap like "FAIL" or everything else I see you post? That "hey I'm a wacky internet dude and I post what I want where I want!!!!" attitude may be acceptable on 4chan or wherever you're from but doing that anywhere else makes you seem like an asshole nerd, not the cool dude who gives no fuck that you think you're coming off as. Not sure why I'm even saying anything because all you're going to do is spout some terrible comeback or turnaround burn maybe including "teh" or "fail". EDIT: Sorry for shitting on your thread Kiya, those bags look cool and it's hilarious to me that william gibson would somehow end up collaborating with buzz rickson. Also before I yelled at the dude with the clown avatar I was going to comment on the logoes as dopey said, not that they're bad it's just kinda funny considering the pretext of the no logo thing [​IMG]
    i could care less what you think. shoes are still overpriced chucks.

    hai buddy. everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    Are you sure? Because saying you could care less about what I think means you care a bit whereas the phrase "couldn't care less what you think" might have been what you were looking for to make it seem like you're the cool ass dude who doesn't give no fuck.

    Listen - there are plenty of reasons people like these. There are also plenty of reasons people may object to them. Me, my main problem with expensive kicks (for me, that is $150+) is that I don't feel as comfortable just banging them up, and this can translate into selfconsciousness, which, for me, is the opposite of being stylish. Your mileage may vary. And you may have perfectly legitimate reasons for disliking these sneakers, though your posts betray a great deal of ignorance. For one thing, there are many, many ways to make a shoe, sneaker or otherwise.

    All this notwithstanding, it's asshole behavior to post in a thread just to shit on someone. Maybe you have a great point to make that is not complimentary to the subject matter. That is fine. But you don't seem to have anything worthwhile for discussion. If you do, please, by all means, continue. If not, c'mon man, no need to be a dick.

    Why buy from Japanese companies when you can shop at Walmart?

    Major Respect. You always have an intelligent, polite response, while getting your point across perfectly.

    Anybody who doesn't like your shit is a moron right?



    For what it's worth, the shoes do look 95% like chucks. Do I still like em'? Yes. Are they really worth the premium? No. At least for me.

    There you are... I knew you'd be back at some point with your same attitude..
    I called the guy a moron because of his ignorant statement regarding footwear construction..
    Which was then backed up by six other users here stating the same thing i stated..

    They look nice, but what does William Gibson have to do with these (aside from lending his name, of course)?

    I still can't get over how hilarious of a combo it is but maybe I only know buzz rickson from the repro style navy chambray type stuff. Has Gibson ever done any ventures into the clothing world before?

    There are labels and logos all over the outside of both pairs of shoes and the bag.

    Honestly, this is kind of disturbing. The whole Rickson/Gibson thing started over a black MA-1 flight jacket that the protagonist in "Pattern Recognition" (book by Gibson) wore that he attributed to Buzz Rickson. The protagonist was psycho about anti-branding to the point that she had the Levis logo sanded off the rivets of her 501's. Rickson never made the MA-1 in black, but started getting inquiries from Gibson fans, and decided to knock off a version, sort of as a tribute. Now the thing goes full circle into being about very visible branding. Is it irony?

    I don' t have the book handy but IIRC it was a watch (Casio? Timex?) that she had the label sanded off of.
