Default Did anyone buy merch from the new TSP.com site yet?

https://smashingpumpkinsstore.com/

https://smashingpumpkinsstore.com/collections/outerwear

Looking at one of these Zero hoodies but wonder how it fits and looks in real life.

it's run by some generic we'll sell shit for you storefront company call FameHouse. Might want to look for reviews for them, because it's all the same generic clothing printed on demand.

The only interesting stuff in design and quality were the original tour shirts in the Nineties.

Some clothes of JAMES IHA, designed for VAPOR, looked beautiful...

Great question. But an even better question is why the Pisces and the Adore ones are $45 and the rest of the albums are $40. What causes that extra $5 to be levied to those particular two?

Man, $40 is a LOT of money for a shirt. Even in a concert setting, $40 is like "hey, I'm at a Rolling Stones concert, so that makes sense" price point. But I bet these are like Hanes Beefy T type shirts.

I would love to see sales numbers for these things. I doubt any of them are selling well, but has anybody gotten say, the Oceania one? The Zeitgeist one? Has literally a single person purchased one of those? I really doubt it.

Do you diphthongs know what an inauspicious omen is?

The upcoming reunion and recordings will perfectly match this merch. Mark my words, vermin!

hot damn this might be the most lazily-designed, overpriced official merch i've seen in my life

if anyone buys any of this shit they need to see a therapist asap, even if you simply wanted a t-shirt with one of their albums on it you could just as easily order such a thing off ebay or even cafepress for a fraction of the price and just as much "integrity"

seriously tho, lol @ $200 "military jackets"

It's not even designed it's just album art imposed over generic t-shirts.

I have a new a job now where I spend a good chunk of the day looking at advertising and promotions online. These services that make t-shrits are terrible. Everyone from celebrities to some asshole in his mothers basement puts out shitty t-shirts now.

It'd probably be even more depressing than the Siddartha sales graph

I actually think a t-shirt with Machina II artwork-like designs would be sick as fuck.
Mellon Collie t-shirt is the only one I'd actually consider buying, although I'm not gonna dish out $40 for it haha
Even the Zero hoodies are shit, I wouldn't want a hood that says Smashing Pumpkins on it. Such poorly designed stuff

LOL @ TAFH and Zeitgeist t-shirts

The fuck? when the hell did they change the design of the Zero shirt?



The originals a classic. Why would anyone bother with this updated shit?

Back when the reissues were coming out there were some decent shirts up on the official store for like a month before it became "The Nexus" IIRC. There was a nice MCIS one that had all the symbols from the booklet.

Wouldn't wash my floor with these rags.

I actually think the design on the Ogilala shirts are the best on the site... And I couldn't care less about the album.

billy's dropping the wpc name from oligaga, so any wpc merch will skyrocket in value due to rarity. get your rags while you still have the chance.

Genuinely hurts to look at that shit. The original Zero hoods are amazing. Too bad I can't get my hands on it

Exactly, it's so random. Nothing SP-related. I wonder why they won't sell the original hoodie, this new shit is terrible. Way too overpriced too, while we're at it

this stuff is even worse than I thought. but why does Universal Music buy a shit joint like Fame House and dumps it on all their artists?
