I wish more urban legends were true.

so.
Tommy Hilfiger didn't make those racist statements.
LET'S BOYCOTT HIS CLOTHES ANYWAY.
They're overpriced, low quality, marketted to label sensibility-minded idiots.
Abercrombie and Fitch?
Same thing.
DON'T BUY THEM.
If you're paying $50 for a t shirt... STOP TO WONDER WHY.
Chances are, it's because there's a designer name for it OR .. the store's name is emblazoned across it.
You are paying MORE to become a walking advertisement.

I actually own a Calvin Klein shirt... it was five bucks at Costco, and the design is printed on in this cool rubbery 3-D stuff. Woulda rather it was the DeCSS algorithm, but I don't think anybody has the bucks to print that in rubbery 3-D.

yeah.. and I own a big fuzzy warm sweatshirt that has a lil "united colors of benneton" thing on the sleeve that I purchased from goodwill.

There's a big difference between that and buying a $50 t shirt that's just a normal t shirt with a regular screen printed logo on it.

I think my mom got this as a promotion from some watch making company when she worked as a jewelry saleswoman.

Is that why you wear nothing at all?

well i am currently in my underwear (bonds) and nothing else but I don't believe I own any walking ad stuff that isn't cool (like a goats T shirt)I do love the stuff in Thailand though which has badly spelled labels.

Dan wouldn't buy me badly made clothes (well, select the item I pay for) and I certainly won't buy myself any clothes at all so you can count me in for your boycott.

Of course I may not be suitable for poster boy position in the revolution, I look like shit mot the time ;)
