FuMan Skeeto Clothing Review

FuMan Skeeto Clothing Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Chris Kirkpatrick may be a joker, but FuMan Skeeto's clothes are nothing to laugh at. Kidzworld freelancer Kristen M. Foley got the 411 from Chris himself when they chatted in New York.

By: Kristen M. Foley

With his quick wit and knack for practical jokes, some might have thought that *NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick would've used his spare time perfecting his stand-up comedy routine. Instead of cracking jokes, Chris is taking a crack at the fashion world with his FuMan Skeeto clothing line. But would you believe that even the name of his clothes started out as an inside joke? (Something involving one of Chris' braids and a mosquito. Dare we ask more?) Don't worry, Chris' tie-dyed T-shirts and studded denim jackets are no laughing matter. They're hip, they're hot and they are made just for you. Kidzworld freelancer Kristen M. Foley had a chance to sit down with Chris in New York. Here's what the original FuMan had to say.

What made you want to do the clothing line?

Chris: I saw so many different styles on so many different people. We saw a lot of stuff that was popular overseas and started wearing it over here and people were like, 'Wow, that's a cool idea.' And it was really kind of old over in Germany and the U.K. I thought why don't we try to bring all the cultures together and make a clothing line so that kids who don't get a chance to go overseas can be stylish.

What kind of feedback have you received about the clothes?

Chris: We've received really good feedback. With the first line we had a lot of considerate people. With this line we've gone a step forward and taken all the designs into the forefront and everyone who has seen it loves it and loves the clothes.

Even with all the success you've had, is there anything that still makes you nervous?

Chris: Everything still makes me a bit nervous. We (*NSYNC) have all grown to support each other so much that when Joey and Lance were promoting their movie they'd call us and go, 'It's weird. It's not comfortable up here promoting the movie without everyone else.' When I'm doing a lot of the clothing promotion it's not comfortable for me to be here without the other guys because we are a group above anything else. We all lean on each other and we all rely on each other. When we're not [altogether] it just feels a little awkward.

It's still early but what are your plans for next year?

Chris: We're going to go back into the studio and we've got a lot of time off. We're all writing towards the new album already. The reason why we drop so many albums, (it seems like one every year) is because when we get a break, or are on the road and we're in our hotel rooms, we just start writing. We have a lot to say and a lot on our minds so a lot will come out.

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
