Pre-stained black T-shirt, sir? This week’s Marketing news is that clothing brand Diesel are teaming up with 2000AD to offer “a science-fiction range of casual clothing”. Imagining what this might actually involve baffles me, but a specially commissioned issue of 2000 will be given away free with purchases – featuring “stories on bizarre clothing and youth cultures”. (Come to think of it, if this means that Mega-City style kneepads will finally be coming to our high streets I’m all for it.)
