Ferguson [by nodogs_nomasters @ 26-11-2014]

I don't really wear my patched vests, but continue to work on mine since I love to sew by hand. If the activity makes you happy, continue doing it as a hobby and you can break it out when you no longer have the blues.
Also: young til you die!

I totally get that. It's alot of fun to create your own diy gear, but even if you don't plan on wearing it right now, one day you might feel like putting it on.
I stumbled across this site once (can't seem to find it now) where they have second-hand punk jackets for sale. I can sort of understand why someone would want to sell theirs :P but who the fuck would want to buy someone else's diy jacket and actually wear it??

haha, I can get why someone would want to buy second hand diy gear, but I don`t get why some of them charge as much as 300 $ for their ratty jackets.

Haha, that part I can actually get, if I could make a living creating ratty jackets for $300,- a piece, with a bit of practice you could maybe churn out 3 per week. That's $900 per week! - material costs, etc., say $600 roughly. That's not bad. But who in their right mind, besides lady gaga, who'se probably got a whole wardrobe full of 'em, would actually pay $300? I mean, they're awesome but I'd rather make my own!

hahah, thats exactly what high end designers do though. I`ve seen a few selling studded jackets that are even more expensive than that.
oh you`d be surprised! theres really a market for that shit right now. people don`t want to diy because its just another trend to them, they`ll be throwing away those jackets in a few weeks anyway. i`ll bet you the punkest bands they know are the sex pistols and nirvana.

HAHA The authentic street wear is unwashable in washing machines! WARNING! If you wash them in a washing machine they will fall fart! The only thing left when the machine is done doing its job is: belt buckles, studs, safety pins, and any other metal used to keep them together...

At least you know you're getting the real deal 'cos they'll smell authentic. If you try to wash them they'll lose a considerable amount of their collectors value, if they don't fall apart.

Some shitbag sold his jacket to this celeb (who is known for domestic abuse?)
The cost: $3,500.
The website: http://www.dnafashiondesigns.com/punk-f ... swear.aspx
Kind of makes you wonder the next time you go to an event whether the person beside you customize their clothes themselves or if they are a trust fund baby with waaaay too much money to toss around. I am a klutz and poke my fingers a lot in the sewing/studding process, and I know I'm not the only one with butter fingers. Blast any chump that never got a sewing injury because they use their credit cards, not themselves to acquire 'DIY' jackets/vests.

If you ask me, it looks like $3,500 of shit. I wouldn't even wear that! And I wouln't ever have worn it either. Someting about that new, neat look I've never really liked. But that's just me.

People really aren't putting much thought into WHERE these old punk jackets have been, are they?!

Genuinely filthy crusty jacket, NEVER BEEN WASHED, only $350!!!

....seriously though, like imagine being at a show and wearing a jacket you just bought-

Cool jacket man, I bet it took you hours to put in all those studs!!
Uh..... yeah..... uh...

Indeed. It looks far too new to look good. But then, I guess the guy can spend the same sum on a breakfast, so what does he care?

(unless you had a huge bodyguard behind you at all times) ^^ Fucking Chris Brown, I wish I had a chance at catching him alone and relieving him of that most expensive jacket. Maybe punk will get all huge because of celebrities and then mainstream people will come to this forum in an attempt to be more "in" than their other friends?!

Reckon it's not a real punk jacket unless you've sewed the patches on yourself or with friends with dental floss and a lighter.
Civilization is a train, speeding towards a tunnel, painted on the side of a mountain, I will watch it sink into the earth, like an empty suit of armor.

As far as I know, pre-studded jackets have been on the market since before I existed since it's linked into biker culture and that's never going away.

I don't understand how now it's specifically the DIY look that's catching on. So someone wants a coat that looks like it's been customized with paint,studs, and patches by hand but can't bother to do it themselves by hitting up a thrift store and collecting the materials by trading/going to shows/bumming off of art school friends. It's like people who want dreadlocks because they saw some crust kids with dreads, but instead of just neglecting their hair and waiting it out these guys/gals go to a salon and pay someone to give them instant dreads for $350. Ugh. (Yes, I have dreads that were born the old school way so this chaps my ass too, big time.)

Also I never used a lighter to put together a vest. Explain? Have I've been missing out on something awesome.
