David Bain Tees...

If you haven't seen them, check them out.

Basically the press were saying that the tees are in bad taste. They also decided for some strange reason to seek the opinions of some crappy art-house designers. They of course felt it was tasteless. Meh. The writers had a field day as well. They used some aggressive words like “unrepentant”, and “slammed” – which was nice work.

Here’s some highlights:

World fashion label founder Denise L'Estrange-Corbet said people should remember that the trial was about "the murder of his family... it's a cheap way for a brand to lever publicity off something which so shocked New Zealanders".
Zambesi founder Liz Findlay agreed. "I feel that this is in bad taste...
So there are articles online on; stuff, nzherald, tvnz, Otago Daily Times, Voxy – check them out.

Now, here’s my take on what's been going on.
  • His jumpers were super-sweet. That’s a fact.
  • That chick with the weird name from ‘World’ should shut up. I mean seriously, she made kids t-shirts with the text: “future porn star”. If anyone’s trying to lever publicity from scandal then it’s surely that freaky lady.
  • That Zambesi lady reckons it’s in bad taste. She should take a second look at her Air NZ uniforms that she designed. Now that’s a fashion crime. Put a bit more effort in lady.
  • Paul Henry felt it was bad taste. That's a shame, I really like Paul Henry. I had no idea he was so PC.
  • Oliver Driver said on Sunrise that the tees were fine, and people should get over it. Good man Oliver you tall drink of water.

Let us know what you think.

Good on you guys for doing this - we need more bold companies like Mr. Vintage to push the boundaries. And those designers can go jump, just because they don’t have the flexibility in their lame expensive "couture" to push boundaries with their creativity, let alone be controversial.

I love it. And you're right, those future porn star T-Shirts are far worse taste than these.

Where can I order one?

Hi I'm Tyrone. Anyone into military coins? If you don't understand the challenge iit's like this: The habit of a trial is the most average way to effect that members are carrying their part's coin. The rules of a impugn are not in any case formalized in spite of a constituent, and may reshape between organizations. The question exclusively applies to those members that fool been set a cash formally by means of their unit. This may main to some disagreement when challenges are initiated between members of different organizations and is not recommended. The tradition of the coin doubt is meant to be a beginning of dedication in a component, and forcing the call into doubt can prime mover a up-end effect.

Последний месяц меня мучает этот вопрос.

Если ты чувствуешь себя чем-то вроде богини, как заставить своего избранника поверить в то, что если ты его выбрала - то он настоящий бог, а не просто ты хочешь с ним поиграться?

Многие мои парни мне говорят: "Ты - самая лучшая, я не достоен тебя!" или "по сравнению с тобой, я - ничтожество", или "я не понимаю, почему ты со мной, ты легко можешь найти себе кого-нибудь лучше". Все эти мальчики не страдали комплексами. И я их любила по-настоящему (настолько, насколько можно любить в моём возврасте), я говорила об этом, но они мне не верили!! Неужели я не вызываю доверия? Как сделать так, чтобы парень понял, что он нужен, но одновременно не нарушить чувства своего достоинства, гордости, своих принципов?Как сделать так чтобы парень продолжал считать тебя богиней, совершенством, и одновременно осознавал, что он -тоже бог, раз я именно с ним, а не с кем-то?
