Need some help finding clothes that have 2D's style from gorrilaz. Any help copping some clothes like this would be appreciated
Will check them out. Thanks for the help
Really digging the alpha industry jackets
Shirt on redbubble
The deluxe edition of D-Sides came with this patch and four buttons that the band are drawn wearing sometimes.
I've got the tshirt versions of this one. I copped them at the Plastic Beach concert in Oakland a few years back.
Nice. I wish I'd gotten this one. It's sold out everywhere now.
SLP, Visvm, Acne, APC.
Think Vietnam-era military married with British rockstar chic. Indulge in high-quality basics, military green jackets and a pair of Vans or Converse.
But let's build on this.
Jamie Hewlett's art has such a great "feel" to it. I've been a big fan of his vibe for a long time (starting with the release of Demon Days but I've read / seen his backlog of work).
2D is very /fa/, but so too are so many entries of Hewlett's work which is choc-full of fashionable looks and idea(l)s.
Going to be dumping work while I'm here - starting with stuff from his IG (@hewll). Be patient because I'm going out with my fiance soon but will be back.
okay brb. Will check on this in a few hours.
Back. Let's dive into Plastic Beach iTunes LP images. Too lazy to remove borders.
Going to be cooking dinner so will be here-and-there. Some of the LP images are really well done. Fits in well with the story of Plastic Beach if anyone else here is a Gorillaz lore nerd.
Even if it was for the images alone. Buying the LP was a great purchase for 17 year old me.
Here's the original, friend: >>10948937
Cyborg Noodle's clothing have better detailing here.
Also OP, Plastic Beach has a very nautical / minimal / basic aesthetic with lots of stripes, thin silhouettes, and far less grunge or punk looks than previous phases.
Almost finished with all /fa/ related Plastic Beach shots.
Above post still stands.
Available at Hot Topic (fuck), but cool shirt.
When I was 12 (I think) I was gifted Demon Days by my 10 year old sister because I really liked Feel Good Inc. on the radio. I pretty much just listened to FGI over and over and ignored the rest of the songs.
I liked the artwork though and spent time after school on the Internet (my dad was the principal of the school; mum one of the teachers; so I could stay back and use the internet as I please) to research Jamie Hewlett and his art. It was a bit weird at first but I grew to really appreciate his style.
Screw it, I'll split it into 3 parts. (2/3)
I had a hard time in high-school and never really had close friends. I stumbled onto "online culture" early through my WoW guild and was talking about Leeroy Jenkins, Longcat, anime etc with like 3 other people in the school who also played games and browsed /b/ (I was underageb& but only lurked because I was too afraid of posting and getting my IP hacked).
I did fairly well in school too but never clicked with the popular smart kids because they fit into the archetype of being a geek or nerd. I was just seen as weird (I was a round-peg, square-hole socially and didn't do much to hide my powerlevel).
Glad you're liking it.
After one particularly harsh day of being picked on, I came back home and - by pure chance - found Demon Days under my bed when I was looking for my World Of Warcraft Atlas for a quest. I wanted to get my mind off things so I quit WoW and put the CD through the speakers in my room.
Listened to the album start to finish.
It blew my goddamn mind.
The end of Kids With Guns, the wind up to Don't Get Lost in Heaven / Demon Days. Everything was so raw and cynical and morose and exactly what I needed.
It's still in my top-3 after going through so much more music since. I know quite a few people who have similar experiences with Demon Days.
To steer back onto /fa/ territory, I look to Hewlett's work, and the vibe of Gorillaz "universe" for my own style because of how I personally feel about the band, and also because I think the aesthetic is cool as shit. I tend to blow my money on Rick Owens too much to be a carbon copy, but it remains a good source of inspiration, particularly the dark military look of Demon Days. Glad to hear that a few people on /fa/ appreciate it too.

Thanks for sharing, bro.
I also got Demon Days when I was about 12. On my way to school every morning, I'd stop by my friend's apartment and we'd have enough extra time to watch the Feel Good Inc music video on MTV. Then one day, I saw it at Walmart and got my dad to buy it for me. It was my first CD, I think. Good stuff.
I liked flipping through the fold-out album art as each song came on. Always thought it was cool that there was an illustration for each track.
Later in high school I grew to appreciate Jamie's art more, and with my offbeat personality, it felt really welcoming.
Here's to the new album this year.
There are definitely more pictures.
Here's like, the one image where they're playing music together.
I was around the same age in middle school 2005/2006 when I first heard feel good inc BUT I didn't know who the band was, and I thought the song was either by Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park, so I ended up becoming an angsty LP fan and then got into indie rock and screamo and to this day I've never listened to entire Gorillaz album but Dare is my fav song
also I was looking through his instagram at work today I just love that style and apparently Hewlett also created Tank Girl? I was like whoa no way at first but I see a lot of similarities
