Jubilee Likes Black Milk!

I was reading the most recent X-Men and something caught my eye. I didn't think about it at first, but something seemed pretty familiar to me. Jubilee was wearing a pair of tights:

They are pretty cool looking, but when I took a closer look, they are actually these:

These tights come from Australian company Black Milk (which I am a big fan of). There is no way to be sure, but how many times do specific items show up in comics, and not just name brands?

Its happening more often these days as artists are using real life photo references - I wouldn't at all be surprised if there is a photo of a model posing exactly like Jubilee somewhere...

@etragedy: I know artists base their stuff on models sometimes, but it is still interesting to see a specific fashion item show up in comics. I wonder if the company knows (if not I already wrote to them)

@razzatazz: What an interesting taste in tights you have.

I thought this was about the hip-hop artist Black Milk at first haha....

It is quite interesting though. For all we know the artist may not have intentionally thought about using it...maybe he/she came across it online and figured that was something Jubilee might wear.

@razzatazz Apparently Black Milk was at the San Diego Comic Con this year, so I'm guessing the connection was made there.

@delphic: Yes, I suppose, it speaks to the inner nerd in me

@etragedy: Oh maybe, I didnt know that. Though would that fit with a timeline to get that comic out by yesterday? SDCC was less than a month ago.

Next time... pick another less-innuendo-ish title... My mind went totally into the gutter and down the sewer pipe! :P

@papad1992: The name of the company is Black Milk, to me that only means a clothing company

Oh wow, so people at Marvel are actually paying attention to the clothing their characters are wearing. Hopefully this becomes a thing for all their comics.

I actually prefer the washed-out version on Jubilee.
