Google tells me it's a line for young men ...

Quote:
We are so thrilled to read about Marc Jacobs newest "young mens" line called STINKY RAT in WWD today. The name was supposedly inspired by Juergen Tellers daughter Lola who used to call Jacobs a stinky rat and he loved it so much he registered it as a trademark for the company. The logo is now being put on polo shirts, wallets, flip flops and even skateboards. Sounds like a hit to us! (The tees are sold on his website for 35 bucks under "special items". )The big questions are will Stinky Rat show in the armory next season? Will Jacobs create a womens line (Smelly mouse?). Will there be a diffusion line called SR? Sounds like I need to start collecting this stuff.

The "Stinky Rat" polo shirts are actually unisex and come in a variety of colors for only $35.

I agree when they say it's boring. Cute name though. I want a sweater. Thats about. I hope this isnt the reduced line everyone was raging over.

I think the reduced line your speaking of is Marc by Marc Jacobs.

marc jacobs is always whoring out his name to some cheap gimmick. it's kind of sad. be it colored pencil sets or non descript clothing with a rat on it. the marc jacobs company always doing something else to try and make a quick buck. since when were designer clothes and accessories not enough?

LMAO. To me it seems as though he just wants everyone to get a piece of the Mj pie. But the skinny rat it was very strange to me.

I dont even consider MJ, especially M by MJ to be a house, it's just a brand. When Lord & Taylor carries M by MJ you know somethings up. I just think Marc Jacobs is overextending his brand, he's going to end up like Pierre Cardin or Oleg Cassini, a Marshalls staple.

BTW, I couldve sworn I already posted here...STINKY RAT...Is Marc hitting the coke again?
