What to Wear / Fri

  • 40's style trousers 
  • Batman tee from Alexa (off. licensed, haha, see below...) 
  • Black patent oxfords

Oh -and speaking of Batman - I'm a little peeved at my favorite Korean online shop; 4chi.co.kr for selling a cardigan with stolen artwork! Again!

Now, they've done it before - and for some reason, they just love The Batman, because I've seen no less than 4 Batman rip-offs from various years and incarnations (60's Batman, Batman Beyond, Dark Knight... etc...) but seriously, guys, as someone who has a relationship with DC Comics, this just has to stop.

And THIS isn't even Batman!  It's BAT-BAT!

Bat-Bat is a satire of Batman done by Ralph Bakshi + John K for their work on the super awesome, insanely wacky "The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse" series in the 80s.  (Before John K went on to head up REN & STIMPY)

The joke about Bat-Bat is that he is a bat ... that dresses up ... as a bat. See the episode below!

Night of the BatBat ... from "The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse" 1981 ...

    It seems to me like they don't understand what COPYRIGHT means ... :P

  3. Korean & Singaporean clothing knows no copyrights! It's like a crazy wild west. There's always straight up Japanese rip-offs too.

  5. That's true Emma, there are lots of forms of borrowing - even Forever 21 has to keep taking things off the racks due to pending suits!
