I know it's not exactly Gucci's thing, but you can't really 'bite' a technical waterproof. They're all standard jackets, they're just adapting to a trend. Which is what fashion (mainstream) is.

Yeah I realize that, and I obviously don't know if they bought it not knowing the other did as well. I just think it's kind of ridicoulus to make a shirt in the exact same fabric when it's such a special/recognisable pattern.

One made by Hickorees last season

One made by Levi's Made & Crafted this season

Not so much a design rip off as pattern rip off

I used to know the name of the big fabric supplier that makes most of the patterned material used. They make 1000's of miles of material every year and push certain patterns during different seasons. It's not a big surprise that different companies use the same pattern and material when so much exists.

@ Byte Agreed, except for the fact that Hickorees claimed it was a vintage Japanese Selvedge fabric!
