I see the Nom de Guerre website is still up. Maybe one day they'll make a reappearance.

Mr Rick Tailor is a recent one to go, have some really nice jackets by them, although think it was just a facade for a bunch of middle of the road Italian factories in Torino.

Bassike? There must be loads of brands that went under in 2009 during the recession.

They've gone in to administration, KPMG have taken over as insolvency practitioners and decided to stop trading in UK.

Knew it was bad for them at the minute plus all the Dov shit but hadn't heard about stopping Cry

Better stock up when the next 30% code comes around (see discount thread)

I always thought American Apparel was pretty shite quality, certainly in comparison to Uniqlo.
