Interesting they have a ‘PRODUCT IDEAS & FEEDBACK?’ option asking us to ‘Tell us what you'd like to see’. Might have to add quite a few suggestions.

Lots of cool new stuff. Looks like the prices have been jacked up a bit, too. $100 for the SOTT sweatshirt?

Just got my order today that was supposed to have been delivered in June, so keep that in mind if you're expecting it soon. Hopefully, they're sorting that out.

I think I'm more inclined to incorporate aspects of Prince's style into my own fashion sense (color blocking, accessories, buttons) I've got a lot of articles of clothing inspired by stuff he wore over the decades. But I make it my own. People don't think "Hey he's dressed like Prince!" they just see me looking fresh.

Wearing clothes with his image or name on it seems less effective.

High fashion is where my money goes, not $100 sweatshirts.

Makes me want to order them just to add to my collection. Doubt I’d listen to them though even if my car (2001 Audi) has a tape player. I think the first Prince album I owned on cassette was the Parade album.

^ I agree, that SOTT tour shirt looks very cool.
Just wished they had used the correct colors, because everyone knows that Peach and Black were the hues for that tour. Looks like they based the design on a bootleg postcard design from the early 90s which substituted a reddish color instead of the appropriate peach. (I still have the postcard)

Also noticed a few spelling errors on the backside with the locations.

But overall it's a nice attempt at something new and cool.

I want the women's Purple Rain flowers top baaaaaaaad. But I won't buy it unless they post a size chart. I sent them an email requesting one - we'll see what happens.

Though I suppose I could always buy the largest size of the unisex tee and just use it as fabric to make my own top. That's what I did with the NC2U tee... hmmm

Very exciting to see the multi-coloured Lovesexy '88 logo as a T shirt and mug. I wore out my old T shirt from the original tour and was always hoping it might come back... and unlike SOTT this looks exactly like the original

A size chart is SO essential for women, isn't it! With real measurements, not just sizes because they aren't uniform like in the olden dayze... razz lol The "pit to pit" measurement is the most essential for me. lol

Plan to upgrade vinyl singles. Need to go through and see where I need. Seems like a good deal if can get % off.

This sounds promising:

"Prince wrote hundreds of songs in his lifetime and released dozens of albums, ranging from studio recordings to live albums, compilations and collaborations with his many affiliated groups and protegés. The store selection will continually evolve with new and out-of-print titles added upon release."

I think it's really weird they've become a bit fashionable again. My first music was purchased on cassette back in 1989. My inventory tells me I have 44 Prince cassettes, but I think there are a few others I have that somehow aren't in the list, like "The War".

I don't think so. I'm away from home for the next few weeks and can't check, but most of the cassettes I own are the garden variety standard that was available in the late 80s/early 90s.

I'd really like to order a couple of t-shirts but the last one that came (size medium) ran really small (the one from the Nothing Compares 2 U package). The offical Prince T, I got from Hot Topic (also a medium) ran large. Returns are such a pain. If anyone could provide insight as to how this batch of shirts run, that'd be great.

Awesome to see the Lovesexy 88 shirt reprinted. I couldn't tell you how many times I seriously contemplated dropping the 2 Benjamins I normally saw it go for on eBay. Even though it's still pretty steep for a t-shirt, I'll pony up and pay the 40 for it since that shirt in particular is probably my favorite Prince shirt of all time. And believe me, I've owned quite a few P shirts over the years. Man, why didn't he take the merchandising side of things more seriously while he was still here? He's got some of the coolest retro merch stuff, he could have made a serious mint.

For unisex, safe bet is buying the next size larger for a male.

No V-neck T-shirts?

Me: God, all this shit is so overpriced and garish. Me about three seconds later: Yes, I will buy this Love Symbol t-shirt for my daughter.


I'd rather go with a high-res right-clicked downloaded-as-file stolen pic and make the T-shirt myself on Zazzle.
Because that just seems to be the case here. Apart from the impeccable Laura LiPuma typos, everything has no art direction whatsoever, the IIWYG chair shot being the most atrocious example. I care little for the eighties revival, but this is ugly.
Especially considering how much attention Prince paid to his clothing.

They still don't get it, don't they. We'd gladly spend a fortune if the product was the reflect of Prince.
This is wasting tons of water producing this color-blind test shit. Save the planet, our eyes, and Prince's spirit, please.

It would b strange 2 see dedicated Prince's fanbase attached 2 something as apparel merchandise. I dont have nothing against, but now when everybody can get/have it... where is the charm? Prince's absence was his presence, but its hard 2 elaborate that in this times... Back in 2013, i was looking up ebay trying 2 find some Prince T-shirts, and everything was tagged as 'vintage'... there was one particular model from 1st half of the 90s but pricey... so i gave up. I doubt that i will ever buy offical merch... Paisley Park is however in my heart!

But everybody can't get it, which is part of the allure. The ugly Urban Outfitters 1999 pieces for example are only in select stores.

.

I like merch and apparel especially now because you get to represent! Show and prove you are a 'true funk soldier' by making your way in the world rocking some funky duds.

.

I have an HnR t-shirt and Purple Rain t that have been cut sleeveless and are super comfy/go with anything really and were a hit at the summer festivals this year. I also have an NPG hoodie "celebrating Prince" and a black t with his face on it that I love to wear and always get a reaction.

.

If diehard fans don't rep, how can we expect a novice/newbie fan to? Also, kids that weren't even alive when Bob Marley was, for example, wear a lot of his merch items and spread his music. Same with 2Pac and even Elvis.

Yep, saw that eek

Makes me want to order them just to add to my collection. Doubt I’d listen to them though even if my car (2001 Audi) has a tape player. I think the first Prince album I owned on cassette was the Parade album.

I have seen new, sealed cassettes for sale in both Sam records and Urban barn, of even new releases like the Love Simon and Guardians of the Galaxy soundtracks. Must be a niche collectible.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

I dunno, the canes? I find them too connected to Prince's physical pains.
They're gorgeous for sure.

20 dollars for a mug. 99 dollars for a sweatshirt. Nice to see that they haven't lost touch with the common man.

And yet it is probably all made on the cheap in China.

They wonder why the fans are not happy with the estate. No mug is worth $20 unless there is $18 in coins on it that can be removed.

Out of curiousity, the Estate store stuff goes to fund what exactly? This is not a question to stirrup anything, I honestly want to know. So much stuff has been going in so many different directions I'm just trying to keep it straight. Who's doing what for what.

I got the identical Purple Rain cover tshirt at Target for half the price of the estate's shirt. I think Kohl's had them to for around $20 (same as Target).
I do like the Hot Thing shirt tho, almost enough to over pay for it!

Well, real gold and real diamonds would turn this item into a product only a Kardashian or some Saudi Prince could afford. Now I know that Prince played for a russian oligarch, but I'm quite sure it was a Robin Hood operation (stealing a million for charities while having a good jam time).

A cane is a fine looking object, until it has real purpose in life. They may look like fashion statements, but we know they were actual back pain relievers. One could question the inelegance of selling these given Prince's medical history. But in the age of Trump, who fucking cares? Everything is for sale, including accessory stuff like memory or decency. Especially decency.

I fear for the future of PPS, I oh so wanted it to become a school for the arts.
It's not, and like Elvis, Prince is going to slowly slip into oblivion
if all that matters is collectibles, visit tickets or the annual concert.
