Post Apocalyptic Fashion… Victims?

Posted by on Aug 06 2009, in apocalypticpost, post apocalyptic fashion

Ok I’ll have to agree somewhat with the Guardian says about Post Apocalyptic clothes regarding movies – they are a bit on the barbaric side:

A movie apocalypse isn’t a proper movie apocalypse if the survivors are sensibly dressed, perhaps in a cardigan and some nice slacks. In the new post-virus cannibal epic Doomsday, for example, the survivors wear lurid punk hairstyles, facial tattoos and enormous stompy boots. It’s as if 80s pop loons Sigue Sigue Sputnik have become the dominant race on the planet. Why is it that our film-makers think it will be this way? After all, with 99 per cent of the population gone, there will be countless clothes shops left to loot; even all-out nuclear war can’t get rid of them all. Still, it’s clearly seen as more effective to put our hero in an appalling pair of leather trousers, and to give his main enemy a Mohawk, an inexplicable nose-ring and big stompy boots to clomp around in….

  • The leather-clad, post-apoc barbarians are indicative of how the anti-hero leaders, enforcers, and movers and shakers of the apocalypse are likely to dress, not the average populace clinging to survival and scuttling from hovel to hovel like rats. While the common and craven masses will scramble to loot abandoned "GAPs" and "Old Navys", the special kind of hardasses who will be tough and shrewd enough to rise to the top of the new tribal order will need to don something that conveys a little more about their spirit and dangerous nature than a stained and passed-over Abercrombie and Fitch. The clothes make the man.

    Not to mention many of these clothes, especially leather hold up well to wear and tear, and offer at least some minor degree of protection from the elements as well as against weapon wielding thugs.

    I do not recommend ordering from them as you may not ever receive what you purchased.

    I'm very disappointed to say that I have had a TERRIBLE experience with Scraplands Apocalyptic clothing. I ordered a skirt back in June for a friend's birthday (it is now October!!). Scraplands sent the wrong skirt, then even after I tried to return the incorrect one (though it was their mistake), they refused to send me the correct skirt that I ordered. I keep trying to contact them, but I've had no success. All I want is the skirt I ordered for my friend!
