"The North Face claims that South Butt's products are "causing confusion, mistake and deception among the general purchasing public..."

Wow, those must be some really savvy buyers. Especially since this kid seems to limit his business to casual clothes.

Haha man that's great! I bet the South Butt's gear is way cheaper, and does the same thing!

Anyone else read "Butt" as "Buttress" at first?

Well, sit right down and I'll tell you. A long time ago there was a strong man named Samson. His old lady Delilah cut off his hair which was the source of his strength and he became weak and puny and changed his name to David. He then got a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas and shot out Goliaths eye with it.

Kind of reminds me of the fight between JRAT and Patagonia over the "Ratagonia" t-shirts.

Those T-shirts were great. I really wish I had bought a couple of them when they were available.

This is seriously awesome. Boo on North Face for taking themselves too seriously. They already have enough money. Let people have some fun.

Yeah, I did.

Boy, if this guy doesn't get shut down, his business will boom. Going from a little known website to a world-wide news story will sure help his profits.

Clever idea.

I think the Jimmy kid put it best when he said "I think the public knows the difference between a face and a but"

Does anybody actually buy TNF clothing for outdoor use? I know the VE-25 is still great, but haven't they gone more or less main-stream when it comes to clothing?
