i love small fandoms and outdated memes that’s actually sad i’m sad
Oh hey, chivalry is totally dead. ThinkGeek released their “Medieval Knight Hoodie" yesterday, which is a blatant rip-off of Catherine Kim’s work.
You’ve undoubtedly seen Catherine Kim’s designs floating around tumblr, she runs IamKnight, which is also a five-star Etsy shop. She is a designer from South Korea who has been working for over 15 years. IamKnight specializes in Medieval-themed hoodies and coats that are custom-made with your color choice(s) and Height and Chest measurements. Even if you select standard sizing, she runs up to 3X! She also makes kid’s sizes and beanies!
She was a nominee for a 2014 Geekie Award in the Fashion and Armor category. There is no way this escaped ThinkGeek’s notice, and they have no right to claim their work as a “ThinkGeek creation & exclusive.”
I really love ThinkGeek, I buy from them often, but this is just really unscrupulous. Catherine Kim has already had her work ripped off by a really cheap ‘as seen on TV’ company, and ThinkGeek is even undercutting their selling price.
Please contact ThinkGeek here and let them know what you think. Or at least spread the word.
