Problematic Clothing

I was getting my surf on tonite (the internet that is) when I came across another line that I like called Problematic Clothing.

Problematic in their own words: It was a bright and sunny California day, and the whole crew was doing what it normally does on a beautiful day, laying around the house watching tv and wasting our lives. We had no money, no company name, and no motivation. As we sat around eating Carl’s Jr., we came up with the name Problematic. Just as we calmed down from our excitement, our friend Steven (now our bodygaurd) walked in and asked if we had come up with a name. We promptly said Problematic. He laughed at us and told us that was the stupidest name he had ever heard. We asked what his problem was and he then responded with, “what’s YOUR problem?”, to which we replied “??????”. We sat around and just looked back and forth at one another until we decided to give up and just go play Madden 2008 on our xbox360.

That story really doesn’t mean anything and that’s the point. We don’t have one set inspiration. We’re not really a themed brand (unless you consider being awesome a theme). Everything is flawed and has it’s own problems in one way or another. None of us will probably ever greatly impact society or change the world, but we sure will point and laugh when we get the chance.

We will always love chicken nuggets and french fries. We love crazy art, even if some people say our work isn’t good enough for “art” (that means you Ms. Johnson!). We listen to all types of music and love action movies. We may not be the founders of a lifestyle or come from an overpopulated city, but we still know what’s up. We think Robert DeNiro is the baddest man of all time.

We won’t say that we hate the government and want to overthrow the system, because that would just be a lie (did I mention we are lazy?). I guess you can consider us rebels…in a non-rebellious way. We don’t mind change, unless your name is Carl’s Jr. and you decide to make your fries natural cut, thus making them the worst fries ever behind In N’ Out.

At the end of the day, we just love making clothes for others to enjoy. We don’t bother describing meaning and influences, because that is something for our fans to discover on their own. If somebody get’s a positive message from our designs, that’s awesome. If not, then don’t worry, you’re probably not the only one.
