Hey, they got some sweet, sweet dark blue nametapes. No ultramarine for high fashion.
I wonder how much longer they'll be allowed to continue making product. I wouldn't be surprised if the big V calls them out.
Still, Iconix Brand Group has offices in Manhattan, New York City.Why are people here talking about "an American company suing a company in the Pac Rim." Where is the office of Iconix Brand Group?Although I do not think it would matter. As Eclipse pointed out, I think and others hinted, this would be a very difficult case to take to court.Avirex is not selling these products in the US, so Vanguard's market is not affected. Vanguard would not sell these items in Japan, since there is no "Civil Air Patrol" in Japan aside from the squadron in Yokosuka, I believe. Again, no effect in Vanguard's market. It does not matter whether Avirex is American or in Asia.I still want to know why people in here are saying "an American company sending a C&D to a company in the Pac Rim."
Here's the whole collection(s).US: http://www.avirex-usa.com/collection/collection_airpatrolunit.htmlJP: http://zozo.jp/shop/avirex/Pretty hilarious...
I see there are a number of discrepancies in the emblems, such as the stripes on the prop blades, and the colors on some of the patches are off. Perhaps they think the stripes on the prop blades in the CAP seal is sufficient to be 'different' and immune from IP issues, but also noting they are careful to not use the actual colors in the real seal.The CAP emblem was obsoleted year before last? So it's open game?On the jacket that has the Middle East Region patches on the back, they are using the obsolete NC Wing patch with the red border. Not sure what's 'off' on the other wing patches. Was the FL wing gator patch obsoleted also?
I'll bet the members in Okinawa, Yokota, and Misawa are feeling like rock stars right about now, heh.
