I came across this pic in my screenshots and i've always wondered who this was? I think Tet posted it up somewhere a while ago.

Ponchos:

I like the way it's presented; it looks like a pair of trousers. I like the bouncing three part hood as well.

This one is quite deceiving. The bends on the sides aren't sleeves and those aren't pockets on the chest, they're arm holes. I remember it being made of waxed material on a waterproof backer, not suede.
I found it on this guys twitter: http://softs.to/
He has his own webstore and designs things for this brand: http://ccp.fm/

has anyone ever translated those scans?
would genuinely like to read what the copy is here

if its shit like "camouflage: the disguising of military personnel, equipment, and installations by painting or covering them to make them blend in with their surroundings."
or actual fashion reasoning etc

It's more about the details of the clothes, pockets, certain buttons, stitches and closures and their OG military influences from what I can read.

I thought it was just an old nh logo, but the letters weren't clear. But I think I'm wrong, it's just blank. I thought it was the logo in the scan below at the bottom left of the page.


Rolex cyclops reference?? what the fuck? If anything it's a reference to a TV screen since it's referencing a movie of a TV show:



Notice this tee is slightly different to Tet's in the pic. Fake? Probably.

When he posted it he said it was his old friend, and that he'd got sick and died

ACU sucks

but yeah the sub-date was almost a standard issue watch then and there but I don't think it's a reference to it.

Again more likely just the nh logo with the letters removed (they left the R mark to the bottom right). And that if that shape is an old TV, Addams family is an old TV show. Makes more sense to me than a reference to just a watch that a lotta Japanese dudes had then.

I'm just looking at my watch now and the shape of the cyclops is different to on the tee if you still really believe that's what it might be referencing (again, WHAT THE FUCK??).

oh and that scan I posted of the girl in the down jacket, the name of the file is "nh_98", that means I have AT LEAST 98 mag scans covering just Neighborhood…But me and Seenmy went in on these for real money back a long time ago and it's kinda a 5thD-eyes only thing, they made me sign with my own blood. Sorry.

Don't tell anyone on 5th but I have actually shared select scans with some true heads (Sayword, Thesilenthunt etc) who seem to have the same love in the past tho, but I would never put them all up on a public forum for any fuckwit.

I can't tell if some of you guys are actually truly interested in this shit or are just bandwagon riding to be different? I mean Big Bee recently switching to skinny pants just makes me wonder. Is this shit like a costume party to you and you're gonna be wearing Our Legacy next week? I'm not wasting scans on anyone that doesn't feel the true meaning of this shit.

No it's not, those pants were sold with pre-ripped tags and extra printing underneath

What's that mean. The guy isn't wearing a bandana, that tag isn't on a bandana (actually tho I do have it on a bandana). Why do you call him the bandana guy though?

@mil Thanks for the info. I respect you for being careful with the scans, i'd do the same if i were in you shoes. The mystery is what's part of the game, if everything was up for everyone to see it loses some of it's cool factor. One day i'll get them from you though, one way or another..

On another note: just lost an auction for cheap taps BDUs in excellent condition i was looking for (50$).. Always hurts a little but i'm hoping they'll be up for sale within the next couple of weeks though (as that happens a lot of the times).
