Since I recently acquired a genuine Misty Mountain Label Lab t shirt, I thought I'd post a quick comparison between it and the less accurate Redbubble version, for those who are considering it as an alt! .
To the untrained eye these shirts look quite similar, but once you look closer the differences start to become more apparent. The Label Lab, for example, has a much thinner neckline than the redbubble, making it easier to wear the H&M Henley underneath. The label lab graphic on the shirt is also much sharper and more contrasting, while the Redbubble version appears much more blurred. .
The Redbubble's graphic also appears to be a bit lower on the shirt than the SA Label Lab (Both these shirts are the same size). The Label lab is also a much thinner and more comfortable fabric, and is also considerably lighter in person.
Overall, although the Redbubble replica has its drawbacks and differences to the SA Label Lab, It is an extremely good close-enough version for those who missed out on the original.
Finally got the chance to pick up the now long-gone Clash hoodie! The screen accurate hoodie is in the Racing Green colour way, however unfortunately this one is the Olive green (Also long sold out).
The story was that I came across somebody on eBay who was selling both versions, and I actually won the bid on the Racing green, but the seller sent me the wrong one by mistake. I've contacted the seller about this, but to no avail. Still, this version is still the SA model and the colour is INCREDIBLY similar.
I'm still in disbelief that this just happened. I've just met Peter Capaldi himself at #rccc !!! He said my costume looked "Just like the real thing!" He was incredibly cheerful and kind as well, and when I gave him my TWC sonic for the photo he asked if he could keep it!
Found an incredible pair of Alts for the infamous Magicians Apprentice trousers! Since the originals were custom made out of extinct vintage fabric finding a close alt is the best you can do, and I'm quite happy to have found these. Now I just need to have them taken in in time to meet Peter Capaldi next Saturday!
