    drjays.com reports:


    Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy Jackson — along with the estate
    of the late Michael Jackson — are launching their first licensed apparel line
    under the J5 Collection name, commemorating their decades as The
    Jackson 5. The men’s and women’s T-shirts and jackets will be in stores in
    February and incorporate imagery from their years as the so-called First Family of Music.

    “I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time. I’ve seen other friends be
    successful with their lines, like Puffy with Sean John,” said eldest brother
    Jackie Jackson, who was the driving force behind the project. “I’ve been in
    this business for a long time and our name is known around the world.”

    The Jacksons have partnered with licensee Steeve Bohbot, who owns the
    L.A. showroom Connected International Sales which reps 17 brands,
    including Jump shoes, Maui & Sons and Kid Dangerous.

    T-shirts will retail for between $32 to $58 and the jackets for about $600.
    Bohbot worked with Rafi Weisman, the original designer of the “Thriller”
    and “Beat It” jackets, on the replicas. Weisman at the time worked under
    the Marc Laurent label, which adorned the original Michael Jackson jackets.


    The J5 Collection has been picked up by retailers including Urban Outfitters,
    Pac Sun, Kitson Men, Revolveclothing.com and 80spurple.com. Bohbot has
    also signed a Japanese distributor to handle accounts in that market and on
    Friday launched an e-commerce site at J5collection.com.​


    Looks to me like they Mike's death is the best thing to happen to them in
    a long time.. Mike's estate appears to be much more cooperative with them
    than Mike ever was.. I knew from the televised funeral that these cats were
    nothing but opportunists.. that's got to be one of the saddest things in the world to
    be nothing but a cash cow for your family.. even after you die.

    Michael is an obvious case of being sacrificed for the rebirth of Hollywood success and the inking of new deals for the family

    Now that's really "off the wall"

    But we must "remember the time" and that there was a long standing beef between the brothers. Remember, Mike told them to "beat it" which i can imagine made them "scream" as it was a real "hearbreaker" and gave them "butterflies" a long time ago! Now it's only "human nature" that they would ask mike "why you wanna trip on me" just so you can go out and try to "heal the world". "Why you wanna be starting something"? Our careers are now "threatened". "please don't walk away", cause that could be "dangerous" for us all. Is it about "money"? If it is then "you are not alone", so before you "ease on down the road", "whatever happens" , remember we were once "invincible" but if you decide to leave us we will be like "lost childeren".

    Mike didn't even want to do the reunion tour, but was convinced to do it in the final hour. Even the motown celebration where he tore down the moonwalk, he only did the song with his brothers because the producers of the show guaranteed him his own spot. One could only imagine if he even kept in contact with his brothers all these years...I mean i don't ever remember seeing them in any of his videos and the only one he collabed with, i think was Janet.

    IMHO, the show, clothing line and whatever else is hush money!
