if you can't afford scab shit, just befriend your local crust punk and get him to make you up some jawns.

Oh man, I totally went through that phase growing up, I had the full Monty, studded black vest patches up black pants etc. but it's not as comfy as the undercover stuff.

on that note anyone else think GIRA / GILA is a GISM nod?

4 letter acronym with rotating meanings?

of course it is a GISM ripoff - he loves all the old jp punk bands. from memory he has some sakevi art in his office.

I think 2006 S/S 'T' (To the universe) has to be my favourite collection. All the Krautrock referenced stuff was fantastic. The whole collection was based around the t shirt. Most of my all time favourite Undercover prints came from that collection.

this thread quickly became my favorite. S/S12 is much better than the last three collections to me. Well F/W11 is up in the air till I get better looks of it.
