Liam Gallagher from Oasis has launched a new clothing line called Pretty Green. There are a few t-shirts in the line so I thought I’d let you know. Any Oasis fans out there? Anyway, from what I can see on the official web site they are nothing special. The website is pretty cool for Gallagher fans though. There is a video and plenty of pictures.
As you can see the t-shirt above is pretty plain but apparently that is what he is going for. I think. To be honest I think Liam Gallagher is full of shit. On the one hand he says “I’m not here to rip anyone off and I’m not doing it for the money either. ” but on the other hand he is charging £40 for a one color logo t-shirt. That’s over US$65. He says he’s doing it “cuz there’s a lack of stuff out there of the things I would wear. The things I want you can’t really get, you know what I mean“, yet he says “It’s just a nice classic range I think. Just classic, you know, classic parka, classic trenchcoat, classic shoes, suede desert boots, nice jumper, nothing, no mad gear going on, just really plain blacks, browns, you know I mean nothing, nothing wild, you know what I mean…“. I think that you can get plenty of gear than fits the bill. Suede desert boots? OK maybe you have to go back in time to get those babies.
In the end he says “I’ve gotta make clothes that I like, you know, I’m not making it for anyone else.” so you have to wonder why he doesn’t just do that. It would be much cheaper and save you a lot of time.
I think I would have had more respect for him if he had just said “I’m in it for the money. My music is not as popular as it once was and I want to capitalize on what’s left of my stardom before I cross over from middle age to old age.”
