Default More new MCIS era themed merch...

Didn't see this anywhere - probably is out there, buried in another thread - but think it's worthy of it's own.

Looks like the boys took a cue from that HUF merch, because they are doing their own new line of MCIS themed merch that was sold out in less than 24 hours.

https://store.smashingpumpkins.com/m...ollection.html

Some decent ones in there for sure - happened to see it early in the morning after it was announced and it was all in stock, but then circled back last night to take a second look and it was all pretty much sold out.

A few thoughts - first, on this one:



That sucks. Who the hell is buying this? Looks like a bootleg shirt sold on the corner after the show. Font is close... but not at all close. Graphic is a shitty reproduction. Just weak all around.



Cool nod to that one sweater with the reindeers he wore during the MCIS recording sessions... you know the one. Don't act like you don't. It's 2020 and you're on Netphoria, of course you know your shit.



I know, prob for the ladies - but it's cool. My wife walked by (after they were sold out) and said, "hey, I'd wear that." Wish it didn't say "25th Anniversary" on the header across the top.

Anything on there meet your standards?

Dig the 2nd one from the 666 tape. Would wear while plonking on a piano and going “i hate the guitar....”

I like this one. $25 isn't bad I guess.

I love the christmas sweater. Such a clever nod to the 666 tapes and super, super obsessed fans

whoever's idea that was, promote them to lead singer

$85 for a 100% acrylic sweater? Don't think so.

Agreed. But, I do think that MCIS wingding sweater design is pretty cool. Only time I have actually felt any interest in their merch since I bought the Zero shirt at Hot Topic back in the day. This being said, not a fucking chance I am subsidizing your tea store with this garbage, BOlly.

That sweater might be the only legitimately cool piece of merchandise the band has put out since the zero shirt. Maybe if the "0" on the front was just a star.

But I can't decide and $85 + postage. No.

The sweater is pretty good, except for that new-era “zero” in the middle. Kind of kills the throwback vibe. If they had a sweater without it, I’d grab one.

Precisely why I didn't pull the trigger on it. Give me any of the other MCIS Wingdings in there and it would be my new Christmas sweater.

The zero on the sweater doesn’t bother me. It’s one of the defining songs and symbols of the album/tour so it’s cool that it’s on there to me.

It was never a symbol from the album, though, like all the other Wingdings on the sweater are. It just doesn’t fit. If it was one of the other symbols from the booklet, it’d have been perfect.

Not true. This symbol wasn't used until very recently. And it's horrible - I wouldn't be surprised if Billy or Strawbs designed it themselves.

MCIS symbolism used the word "zero" and a star.

I missed this first time round, but it is spectacularly bad. Hurts me eyes and soul that someone, somewhere designed it to look this way. The text.... good god...

Isn't that the point? It was made to look vintage, just out of the 90's tie-dye, homemade shit.
