Members Only

Is it 2 early 2 start thinking abt what I want 4 Xmas?

Yall.  Xmas is just around the corner.  Let's start thinking about what we're gonna ask our cool moms & free-spirited dads 4 4 Christmas/Chaunnykah/TheKwanzaa.org.

Should I ask for a Members Only jacket and a Slutty MexiMAltstreamer? Do they sell humans on ebay/craigsZanyList yet?

Disney Star OR Just Another Mexi Who Walks Into a Tacky Store At The Mall to buy clothes that show off her padded bra (which enhances her B cups)?

Do celeb n00dz ever get old? [Picture link] (Not sure if I can h0st it cuz it might be a lil bit too 'kiddie' even tho she has a box cut.)

WHAT ARE YALL THINKING OF GETTING FOR CHRISTMAS? (besides a Mexi with a boxcut)

The ReBranding of Members Only

I remember I blggd abt MEMBERS ONLY a while ago, and some1 cmmnted and told me that the brand was purchased by a bigger company, and that bigger company looks like it wants to capitalize on the large alternative market.

I remember the days when Members Only Jackets were for self-perceived authentic alts. Now it seems like they are trying to compete with American Appy to go after the 'mainstreamers who need something that looks retro for an 80s themed party' demographic.

By capitalizing on the Members Only brand, are they unintentionally weakening it?

wanna get buzzed and buy some animal print Members Only Jackets?

Members Only also designed some leggings. In order to be 'more than just b0ring leggings', they provided the service of 'drawing on fake pockets.'

Do yall prefer fake or real pockets? I feel like this is something you'd see 'a poor person trying to be fashionable' wearing.

I wonder if I'd rather have the POCKET leggings or Lindsay Lohan's 'Knee Pad Slut' leggings. s0 hard 2 make decisions.

But srsly yall...is MEMBERS ONLY headed straight for Inauthenticville?
Might have to start thinking about selling my vintage Members Only jackets to Buffalo Exchange before they really start losing their value. sux.

BUT SRSLY...
who 'owns' the CC logo?

Chanel? Cut Copy? Crystal Castles? Crooks & Castles?

I just want to accumulate more products that represent me.

I am going 2 blog about more products and how these products will make me a better person/make my life more meaningful/make my personal brand more alt.

N E WAYS.... here's some stuff I've been 'online window shopping' 4.
<3 <3 <3 <4 <5

Should I buy these headphones by Ed Banger & WeSC? I've always wanted a pair of ED PHONES. They will probably make the music sound better out of my iPod/ableton.

These look like something that come with a Fisher Price toy and have shitty audio quality. The only people I can see buying these are 13 year old tween alts, or 'Euro Electro House D-bag FGGTs.'
Do u think it will hurt Justice's image when they are contractually obligated to wear these sillie lookin things?
[Freshness]

Is it time that Ed Banger starts to look for a new aesthetic just for the sake of keeping things fresh? Time 2 Fire SoMe?

**************
Should I buy this moustache necklace thingy?

Do u think it will make me look as authentically quirky alt (NappyDynamite) as the girl in the pic? Is her life meaningful?
[SwissMiss]
************************
Should I buy these leggings made by MEMBERS ONLY? They are made out of rubber. I wonder if that will feel better than American Appy Leggings or LindZay Lohan's "Tired of Leggings Starting" Leggings Fashion Line.

SRSLY tho... Members Only should stick to making jackets. That would be kind of like McDonalds turning into a record label/blog hybrid business model.

Should I buy this zany t-shirt?

It represents me for me (except it's not in Arial/Helvety).

MEMBERS ONLY JACKETS: HERE 2 STAY (until the world ends in 2012)?


Did Members Only jackets come out in 2006? Or 1906? It's tough to tell. I wonder if they will be here forever. I feel like people who wear Members Only Jackets are either:

  • authentic-in-a-bad-way alpha dog alt bros pretending to be alt 'men'
  • mainstreamers trying to be NOT that alt, but still make it known that they are 'bein a little edgy 2nite'
  • old men
  • celebrities who have professional stylists who dress them much like good moms dress their kids to go to elementary school.

But ya, I love throwing a MembsOnly Jacket over my purple AA hoodie whenever it is below 70 degrees.

BTW, I did some research and the MEMBERS ONLY website looks like garbage. I'd expect this kind of site from a startup streetwear company, but not from an 'iconic' brand like Membies Onlie.

The Christian Geezer who predicted the rapture wears a Members Only Jacket bc he is alt

</embed>

Harold Camping is some old Christian yahoo who predicted that a Rapture was coming 2 kill every1 on the planet, and then it became an internet meme because no1 really takes zany Christians seriously. Anyways, his predicted rapture date came and went, so some camera crew went and knocked on his door, and he was all like "Whoa! I'm still alive, yall!" But then he was like 'leave me alone', but not before we got a glimpse of his TOTALLY ALT Members Only Jacket. It seems like it is authentically vintage. I have never seen that color in such pristine shape.

U look REAL GOOD, Harold BB!

Do u think he got his jacket from a local vintage thrift store, or has he had it 4 years?
What did yall do 4 the Rapture?

Harold Camping who predicted that on May 21, 2011, about 200 million people will Rapture and those left behind will die when the world gets completely destroyed on October 21, 2011, has told International Business Times (IBTimes) that "(He has) got to live with it (the fact that his prediction has failed)".

Did Harold Camping 'crush it' with the Rapture Meme?
Did he 'crush it' with his vintage jacket?
Do u wish old Christian men just focused on 'being grandpappies' instead of letting their dementia-wave babble get the best of them?
Do u think he would be willing to sell his Membs Only jacket?
Are Members Only jackets 4 authentic alts or posers?
Do u <3 or h8 kRaZiE KriStiAns?
