UNDERCOVERISM general discussion thread

Recommended Posts

Recently picked up a kaws collab tee from the "Chaotic Discord" line in 2001 and was surprised to see it did not come with a care-tag.. I asked the seller and he said that they were made without them.

 

Can someone confirm this for me?

anyone happen to have any info on this UC piece. I was thinking it was an alt. cw to the black goretex from ss09, but I had the hardest time finding any info on this.

yeah thats me. Mainly why I asked the question. I've been told it could be a spot item, so I guess the chances of me getting a trade in a size 3 or 4 could be very slim.

 

seems like the most ideal explanation. doesn't hurt to keep looking though

That archive collection mentioned a while ago @ instagram

 

2016 Spring/Summer Men's Collection "THE GREATEST"

Founded in 1990, UNDERCOVER’s first collection followed soon after in 1994 and we have been showing for 43 consecutive seasons so far. For our 25th anniversary we have selected symbolic seasons from the past and chosen representative pieces from those collections, rearranging and reconstructing them. This is a special archive collection 25 years in the making.
All looks are available to view on undercoverism.com

I don't see anything bad except the star wars tees and caps. They are funny though, nobody forces you to buy them, the collection is huge.

Unofrtunately the styling and photography (and the model...) are quite bad, but the collection itself is pretty awesome. Wish I could've styled and shot it...

Just got a question for you guys who know way more about UC than I do.

 

I noticed these pants on grailed

 

https://www.grailed.com/listings/177990-undercover-cargo-utility-pants

https://www.grailed.com/listings/125118-undercover-ss15-multi-pckt-utility-pants

https://www.grailed.com/listings/173037-undercover-rigid-denim-taper-jeans

 

Are these legit? The seller has very good feedback and has sold a ton of other legit items it seems so I wouldn't doubt the authenticity but I did some searching and found the same pants on a taobao seller for very cheap and in a wide size range.

Usually, if the price is too good to be true, it's definitely a fake in my experience. Wondering what you guys think.

ya he's slinging fakes. the cargo pants have the stitch detailing on the knee in both the taobao and his version, but the actual cargo (n4501) has NO stitch detailing at knee.

 

also, same shop has marni pants that he's selling

Pretty sure the n4501 cargos did have stitching on the knees?

Not commenting on the grailed or taobao listing's authenticity but yeah.. the pants had stitching. I remember feeling some stitches give when I put on my size4 lmao . (Purchased from Haven.)

yeah you're right actually. there's a definite difference though - the real ones are more "indented"

regardless.. the seller has taken down his fakes already.

That's a pretty surprising level of knock off there, especially for a label as relatively small as undercover. That said, UC has a crazy cult following in Japan. They must in China as well given these kinds of bootlegs. But I haven't seen that good of a knock off on Visvim or other more popular labels.

Did undercover ever use neck tags that read undercover co ltd.? Especially the J4205 leather/down jacket from AW12? Is there a lot of fakes around from that jacket?
