The amazing thing is that it's like inventing a chicken shop called KSG, popping on a white suit and being treated as Colonel Sanders while you're in Kentucky.

Let's be honest, it's not the jeans it's the fact that he's a handsome charismatic guy. That goes a **long** way

Well. I think those Georgo jeans are really nice and the price is just right. 16 Sterling or 20$ is a steal compared to Levi's white washed jeans for freaking 100$. Checkout the website.

The irony is: At this moment you are probably more popular and a greater artist, than the people you spoke with. You are my favorite „reporter“ at VICE. Hopefully you got better contract terms than Louis Rossmann.

What worries me is that these sorts of rip off brands are usually a whole lot worse than average brands with slave trade and human exploitation.

What makes this social experiment really interesting is the perception the fashion industry has on people. Adam has created, established and then maintained the brand for 30 years but if he rocked up and asked for a pass would he get one? Would influencers be willing or interested into giving Adam a shout out without payment? Or invite Adam to after parties and networking events? This is a real big eye opener! Like damn 😦

2:21 Mr. Georgio Peviani looks like he's going to pray Salat Al'Jumuaa' at the local masjid in a 2000$ piece of fabric.
