    People pleeze!

    MikeJames i agree with your statement wholy.

    I can't stand the word Ghetto Fabulous or Bling,Bling, As a black/mix woman i would totally offended if someone even spoke to me about that word, not only is it COMMON and describes a grade of people. I do think that when "Ghetto Fabulous" is mentioned the words - rough-neck springs to mind, and im sure im not the only one that think like this. I agree that for some reason, designers/stylists (with their own alterior motive) do use rappers to advertise and make more famous their logos and labels, whilst not being a big rap fan at all, i can see the appeal.

    Oria you and I are so ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH!

    As for Von Dutch clothing :yuk: , as Simon Cowell from Pop Idol would say " So what, nothing special, no biggie" :innocent:

    Gucci girl I totally disagree w/ you... and space miu i totally agree with you... You act like just because someone uses the word ghetto that they are being doragatory towards black people or rap culture, which is so not true in my case.. and by the way white people can be ghetto also.

    Totally agree, even though I don't follow that style :p



    I have this black Von Dutch tee with red lettering that I got as a gift, and I totally turned it around by adding red beading on the lettering, and almost covering the whole tee with black beading and sequins :lol: ...A lot of people, who doesn't look like the kind of people who would wear V.D. is asking me where did I got that tee, so, what I mean about this is, that all the fuzz about V.D. and looking trashy is built by the people who wears it. Practically here, I covered the whole topic's idea :lol:

    Please people, don't start a fire about this, advertising like this is all that V.D. wants :eek:rder:

    just becuase a rap star wears a certain brand doensnt make it ghetto. its all how you wear it. sure i've seen jay z sportin lacoste polos, but he wears em all huge, and i chose to wear mine more fitted. missy wears adidas track jackets but she wears em with the bling blingin jewelry and matching pants and other people wear the same jacket with jeans and no jewelry. its all in how you wear it.

    for all you people that have gone out and bought von dutch, you have all succumbed to a trend that i think is gonna go out within the next 2 years. i have a classic logo von dutch tshirt and regular von dutch cap -- and how much did i pay for each? 20 bucks for the hat and 24 for the tshirt. this was 3 years ago before von dutch was all trendy so all you folks out there that buy the 42 caps and tshirts and even the 85 caps you all are getting scammed big time haha. von dutch knows how much you want them and jacked the prices up way high

    plus those women's jeans that were pictured earlier -- they are copies. copies of Diesel's Hush Jean. i mean if your gonna charge that much for a pair of jeans at least use your own design. i mean the diesel hush has been around for at least 2 years.

    I find the whole trucker hat phenomenon hilarious. It all started with guys who started wearing mesh back hats that they found in their parents' basement or thrift stores as a joke and now American Eagle sells them. :lol:
