Some of those logos look different...

Clothier, dorm room furnisher,  vinyl outlet and soon-to-be-Williamsburg-retailer (maybe with a liquor licence), Urban Outfitters recently released a pair of hand painted leather jackets that have been raising some eyebrows around the Internet. The jackets, a Crass-Sex Pistols-Clash mashup and a Dio-Megadeth-W.A.S.P. disaster, are selling for $375, here and here respectively. For that amount, you could buy two of The Clash's massive $175 Sound System, but you can't wear a box set of complete remastered works.  Mind you UO's website says they're genuine vintage and only have one of each. They've been available for a while -- who would pull the trigger on these babies?

In the spirit of all things apparel, a preview of metal and hip hop themed holiday sweaters that you might actually think about wearing, below...

I wish they had a hand painted sabra logo jacket.

I guess they forgot to take into account how much Crass hated The Clash. Funny to see both of 'em on one jacket.

Fuck this store. Hipster bullshit. My armored motorcycle riding jacket(YES,us riders actually use the fashion for protection) cost a fraction of what they're asking for the above.

Those sweaters are awesome. The leather jackets aren't.

The designs look like they were drawn by children, in addition to being a horribly pathetic idea to begin with.

You deserve to have your genitals removed if you buy those.

That Crass leather is punk as fuck and you know it!

at least you now know what to get that obnoxious poser on your list this. these faux-punk/metal jackets are funny to look at online...but who the fuck wears dumb shit like this besides that woman-beating rap star?

reminds me of something you'd find in a trend store in china....only for a fraction of the price.

Ugly clothes for cretins.

hopefully the pistols and clash will sue the a-hole who made these and sells these.

they are garbage.

It's become quite obvious that BV and it's commentators hate successfull creative talents. Just cause your etsy clothing, artwork, or crummy song writing only peaks the interest of your friends and family doesn't mean you have to hate on someone else's success.

"piques the interest..."

8:40- and it's become quite obvious that your trolling is transparent.

I doubt they'd be daring enough to put Crass' "Jesus died for his own sins, not mine" on anything.

UO lawsuit to follow.

Those sweaters rule. And they're actually legit. Unlike UO's technique of getting some ex-American Apparel undergrad 'fashion' designer to phone in some google image search shit for the back of a leather jacket.

Like, did they even sell one? Hallowe'en Outfitters?

Urban Outfitters employee here, this is what we call 'Urban Renewal' which basically means what others have already touched upon. Some of these items are bought from yard sales and thrift stores, some are actually older items we used to sell but altered in some way to make it new. Generally these items are purchased by the pound at rag warehouses, things like Renewal cutoff shorts and bleached or tie dyed t-shirts. Most customers, at least in my store, know better and steer clear.
