Vegans can wear any clothing as long as it's vegan. Actually, they can wear anything they like, but if they do, then they's be lying about being 'vegan' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br>
Lots of 'Baby Phat' stuff is animal free.

Sure there is some stuff that isn't, but I'm taking a wild swing here, Baby Phat in general isn't vegan. And buying from a company that uses animal products sorta goes against the whole point...

What's wrong with buying the stuff that doesn't have animal products, even if the company uses animal products in its other clothing? That doesn't mean you're not a vegan...<br><br><br><br>
That's like saying vegans can't buy veggies from the supermarket because the supermarket also sells meat and milk and eggs.

I have mixed feelings on that. The money you spend on veggies is profiting the grocery store. The money someone spends on meat is profiting the grocery store. Once the grocery store buys it, it's theirs. They bought the meat to sell, just like they bought the veggies. So in essence, you are giving your money to the people who are making money off the meat.<br><br>
That said, I do shop at regular grocery stores.<br><br><br><br>
I also kind of liken it to how some people refuse to buy certain veg*n items because their parent company sells some non-veg*n items. This has been discussed before, but the more veg*n things that are out there, the more convenient it is to be veg*n, the more people (we hope) will become veg*n. So we buy from those companies. If we all stopped buying from companies just because they sold nonveg*n things, they'd see no market for the veg*n stuff, and they'd stop producing it; and it'd be even harder to get than it is.<br><br><br><br>
Clotheswise, I don't know. I'm a teeshirts & jeans kind of person. I haven't checked my tags and done the research to see if the companies have nonvegan things, as well. I have some belts that aren't leather, I'm fairly sure the companies that produced them DO have leather belts out there. Some of my favorite shoes are a pair of dark green hemp adidas. Adidas has a million other models of shoes that are leather.<br><br><br><br>
Granted, there are the veg*ns out there who want to ONLY support stores and companies that produce ONLY veg*n things. I can appreciate that. I'd be a hypocrite if I agreed fully with it, though.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: On the other hand, I avoid buying products that aren't tested on animals, if their parent company tests on animals. *grr*..brilliant brunette by John Frieda....

And to even further that : The vegies you buy come from a farm. That farm probably also raises animals for slaughter.<br><br><br><br>
.... As long as you buy vegan products, you are vegan. The bigger scheme of things would be wonderful to follow, but damn near impossible.

Exactly. The whole point of veganism is to be the best vegan you can be.

But with so many resources, it's getting easier and easier to "be the best vegan you can be"<br><br>
And I guess what I was trying to say didn't really come out right. I would by from, say, Kiss My Face even though they do add milk and honey to <i>some</i> of their products but it is humanely obtained. I just have a hard time believing that multinational companies (not famed for being organic or cruelty free, mind you) like Baby Phat humanely obtain their fur and leather.

i would never buy anything baby phat my ex-friend bought a coat lined with fur i haven't talked to her since. going in that store made me sick looking at all the corpses hanging on the walls. watch a fur video at <a href="http://www.furisdead.com" target="_blank">www.furisdead.com</a> and make up ur mind from there. i'll shop at grocery stores, even at places that sell leather but never from any place that sells fur.
