    eric bostrom - the next male model?

    as the title reads, i'm just watching some 2-wheel tuesday on speed now and greg white says that eric bostrom will be modelling in some fashion show for a charity of some sort. haha, will he be the next male model? just joking.

    meanwhile, as much as i HATE that stupid shit Von Dutch, there is supposedly a special, limited edition Eric Bostrom version of those ugly trucker Von Dutch caps. the colour combination is nice, but Von Dutch still sucks like crap.

    Von Dutch is Harley Davidson for hipsters, all brand, no substance.

    Somewhere, the real Von Dutch (who was a bona fide biker) is rolling in his grave.

    i agree. the brand and "kustom kulture" (as spelt and quoted precisely on the von dutch site) is really no substance. just all brand, pure trash, crap quality with undersvingly super-inflated prices. aka, von crap, von trash.

    yup, an article about the man himself, the real von dutch, is found under the "kulture" tab on http://www.vondutch.com.

    the one thing i don't mind i guess, is that von dutch is a sponsor for eric bostrom. at least they sponsor him out... even though it's still von crap (the brand, that is).

    a snippet from bostrom's site about von crap's sponsorship:

    Von Dutch Originals is a Los Angeles-based clothing company specializing in fashions inspired by nostalgic vintage-styled clothing and denim. Launched in its present form in 2001, the company is named after legendary hot rod "Kustom Kulture" king, the late Kenneth Howard, who under his professional name "Von Dutch" is credited with being the first to paint hot rod style pin stripes and flames on cars and motorcycles in the '40s and '50s. Modern day enthusiasts identify themselves with "Kustom Kulture" - a lifestyle that appreciates everything vintage - from classic threads to custom hot rods and motorcycles. Von Dutch Originals reintroduces this lifestyle in clothing, Kustom Cycles, Von Dutch Collectibles and Toys for all ages.

    more about his sponsorship can be found on:
    http://www.ericbostrom.com/artman/pu...ticle_85.shtml

    The new partnership will not only see the Von Dutch branding on his Alpinestars leathers, but also on his factory Ducati 999 Superbike. In addition, a dedicated Eric/Von Dutch line of high end clothing that reflects Eric’s unique style and character will be unveiled shortly and become available to fans everywhere.

    high end? good grief. oh well, who am i to say, i'm not von crap fan at all. oh well.

    Just what I heard on Two-Wheel Tuesday last night.
    He's gonna do a runway show, but no one's really announced a date yet.
