Yeah, there were quite a few of them but it didn't really take off.
Similar sort of stuff to what they do now but it was very heavily geared towards basics, and the denim wasn't anywhere near as good. Was still well worth a visit though.

That's a bit pretentious for a shop that most people go to for cheapy t-shirts.

Just got mine today, the fit is really nice (a little on the slim side of regular, slightly tapered), the denim quality is great, and the colour is really deep. All in all, I really cant find any faults considering what they cost, Id definitely recommend them.
