      I can’t stand when people cannot have their own identity! I bet u are one of those people who stock up on trendy clothes and have to get rid of them the next year because it is “out of style”. Look, real fashionistas dont dress according to trends! Have fun with fashion and dont take it too seriously but most importantly wear what suits u and what u like regardless of what n e one else thinks!

    Haaaaabbbbrrr….the boy try mehn. I love the presentation. The photography is on point. And I actually like the high-waisted pants and the “textured” look of the un-ironed shirt that the male model is wearing…big ups Jim, as much as I think you are a terrible actor.

    Its not a high waist jeans,its a high waist dress pants! obvious you people dont have no sense of fashion.The model is gorgeous beautiful body and very exotic features why are you haters hating on her? The garments dont need to be ironed the presentation are well put together,quality and selection so why not just congratulate oppose to saying all these negative comments! I bet half of you writing have no food or any achievements to be grateful for.If you cant beat them join them.

    omd! for once in my life i have to say Jim Iyke is not rezz… choi… The line is fresh and different (abi is it bcos it is in yankee d and its oyibo models lol ) well. pls just continue this and dont go back to Nollywood mbok. *sigh*

  54. Le Sigh

    October 18, 2011 at 11:39 am

    well sha on a 2nd thought, now that i have calmed down… you can pick these things from H&M, topshop, River Island or Burton sha…. im just saiyng oh (before u pple crusify me) lmaoo- my sis says i’m a weist.

    • Onyx

      October 22, 2011 at 11:28 pm

      I agree, the first thing that struck me is that it’s all totally high street, but honestly, there’s nothing wrong with high street – DP, Riv Island, Zara and H&M serve their purpose. In terms of effort for a Nigerian brand, have to say this is very well presented and if prices are right + quality is preserved, he could go far. Maybe couture someday? (can’t believe I just typed in the words “couture” in a post concerning Jim Iyke)

    I love the outfits, they are very nice. Its good to know Jim Iyke is more than just an actor. He is truly an Igbo man and trailing the likes of artistes like Jay Z and co who try to make good use of their money. Kudos.

    Haters! Smh! They always show their funny heads. Who is the public that doesn’t like Jim? I love him and he is a fabulous actor esp when he cries. As for his collection, I’m totally lost for words..he’s blown me away and has proven his great taste in fashion. Umm…some other pple should take a few classes.

  66. ladybird

    October 18, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    Can we for once praise someone for. a job well done, and stop looking out for faults!!!!! Jeez. Shirts not straightened, models not good looking! Pull your own off now!!!! MschewwWw

  67. Tiki

    October 18, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    i don’t see what’s so hot about these clothes. they look like your run-of-the-mill Topshop to me. Nothing says ‘Jim Iyke’ here!

    • Onyx

      October 22, 2011 at 11:34 pm

      And yet, we still find good reason to shop in Topshop (Lord knows I’ve seen enough Naija red-carpet pics wt celebs wearing highstreet clothes). Nigeria needs it’s own high street brand and if he’s bringing it, why the heck not? Baby steps, hon, baby steps.

  68. Bukola

    October 18, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Never liked his acting but THIS i must commend. I LOVE the presentation, he really put a lot of work into this one and from the look of it, he’s gonna go far with this clothing line….especially with the teens section. All he needs to do is make sure its affordable. Only critic (contructive) is that the clothes look a little too ‘Tommy Hilfigerish’. Throw in some african prints now, you’ll be amazed….

  69. Ahmad

    October 19, 2011 at 4:08 am

    Smart move Jim Iyke and I like the name Untamed Closet! The models are all hot! I would buy from your store classy and sexy at the same time,smart guy!

  70. Ahmad

    October 19, 2011 at 4:16 am

    Congrats on your achievements,You are growing proud of you man and I luv the fact that you really plan this out you can tell by the different ethnicity of the models and the location well done Mr Nollywood go get that money!!!!!!!!!!!!

    never been a fan of jim;well,he’s is not silly so much as he bugs me but i gotta give it to him this time.for once in his life,jim has worn outfits not swanky or tacky.he seems to have given up dressing in all the colours of the rainbow.the mental picture i had of his closet was an explosion of the rainbow in a fabric shop!!!

  76. emeka

    July 3, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    just to state the obvious,the name “untamed” seems to be more appropriate for his previous style,figuring he doesn’t abandon this new look for his usual icky style
