    It just seems like they popped out of nowhere and started producing the same copycat goth-ninja stuff that was already available, only shittier designs and construction.

    Honest question, can you draw some comparisons for me here? Other than "OV ripped off Rick's long tanks"
    I've read the OV thread at SZ, I know Faust would lynch me, but I honestly don't see much in common between them. Rick looks sci-fi. OV looks punk. Both make lots of black?

    I mean even on the most basic level an OV tee has square shoulders and a boxy chest, a Rick one has soft shoulders and a flowy anatomical shape. OV makes raw cut reversed fabrics and Rick makes a bunch of extreme tailored and clean spacey looking shit. I mean I know there's other stuff but OV hasn't made anything even close to an Exploder bomber and his leathers have a completely different attitude.

    I just watched Crust. There was one look with a leather jacket that kinda looked like something that could be in an OV show. Maybe I need to look at older Rick? There's not much on youtube besides '11 and '12 which are obviously not what I'm looking for.

    edit: Okay, I will give you a couple pieces of OV FW '11's outerwear.

    I am liking these looks from Gucci SS12. Chunky sweater and narrow pant.

    All the model's body proportions look very weird in those shots.

    Non-clothing related, but anyone who uses library.nu aka gigapedia knows what's going on with the site? Used to be an user but can no longer log in ...
    Any alternatives to suggest?

    Looks like forward's new website has come at a cost. Discount code gets you 10% off instead of 15%. At least they didn't throw it out altogether.

    F that 10%. Just use a different e-mail address, then call or chat or e-mail them and get the 30% off first time buyers.
