  1. I voted for Bape because I like the designs better, besides without Bape we wouldn't have BBC. I like BBC alot but sometimes they are hit or miss.

    Plus I'm a huge fan of the animal hoodys; tiger, shark and the panda. Something BBC/IC will never be able to compete with in my book.

  2. Agreed. I'm actually surprised that BBC is putting up a fight in this poll. 16 years vs 5
    Their 1st 2 or so seasons were beastly and they kinda outshined bape actually. But that didn't last long. Bape is more practical and they are constantly amazing us.
