    One of my favorite designers, and a great guy, Zam deserves his own thread here. The quality of his work is impeccable as is the cut of each garment. While not cheap, similar designers sell for double the price.

    Here of some of my favorite pieces from the current collection.

    I've always felt like zamb's stuff is cut for more muscular guys, i.e. not as slim as a lot of the gothninja brands. Is this true, or do I get this impression because zamb himself is a well-built guy? Anyway, I've always been curious to sample his stuff, but I always feel like there's one too many details (probably because I like my clothes for the most part simple and clean, and zamb utilizes a lot of overlock stitching/raw edges) or that something's out of place, and I don't have a strong idea of what his vision as a designer is. I I don't mean to bash on his work at all, he clearly cares a lot about it and puts a ton of effort in, and I'm sure the quality/construction is out of this world.

    thigh measurements are kinda loose. i would prefer like a 10.5" thigh, but they're usually between 11" and 11.5". then again, i prefer my hems to be like 6.25"...so i'm probably not a good indicator of average leg... girth...?

    It's my nice way of saying he's not clinically underweight like the rest of us. :embar:

    Depends what cut you go for. The j pants and jeans are loose in the thighs. I had to get both tailored. The DNA pants though fit much skinnier.

    I would not call Zam Barrett "goth ninja" lol. That word gets thrown around way too much on these forums.

    As for the "simplicity". He has some very basic pieces that are fantastic. Yes he does utilize overlock stitching is some garments (which I love), but hardly all of them are like this.
