Eventually every favorite old shirt reaches a point of wear and tear that signals it’s time to throw it out. Such was this case this past week with this light pink “Pop Classics” t-shirt by Swedish clothing brand Acne Studios, pictured below. We had been wearing the tee regularly ever since we purchased it at the Opening Ceremony store in Los Angeles 4 1/2 years ago. The shirt had finally developed one hole too many.
We’re big fans of Acne’s clothing and we’re sad to see this shirt go as it was the most comfortable, well-fitting and perfectly designed t-shirt we’ve owned. That says a lot given that the t-shirt, as global wardrobe staple and ubiquitous fashion commodity, is one of the most mass-produced items on the planet. One would think it would by now be difficult to improve upon. But this t-shirt had.
Awesome dude Hiroshi shows off his “Don’t Fuck It Up” graphical t-shirt at the rooftop BBQ party in New York York City this past weekend. It was one of the fashion-style highlights of the evening. Love it.
While on the way to the gym, we recently ran into our friend and regular style-insider Susanita at the La Colombe in New York City’s NoHo, where she recently showed off her authentic Universal Studios Florida graphic tee featuring the classic 1980’s movie icon E.T.
Late last Saturday night, we ran into D. who was sporting his vintage Misfits t-shirt when popped in for drinks at An Choi, a popular Vietnamese bar and restaurant on Orchard Street in New York’s Lower East Side.
Partner in crime Moritz was wearing such a superdope graphic t-shirt on a recent night out on downtown New York City, that we asked him to model it for us. The tee design is a brilliant, whimsical image with a kind of retro English, possibly Edwardian quality to it, like something we’d expect to see on the cover of an album by a band like the Walkmen or Bombay Bicycle Club.
A Bathing Ape (or BAPE), the global Japanese clothing and lifestyle brand started by creator and Tokyo music producer Nigo, is twenty years old. To mark this milestone, there’s an anniversary exhibition of Bathing Ape design and classic artifacts at Daikanyama T-Site, the super-architecturally stylish and utopian Tsutaya-Starbucks shopping complex in Tokyo’s Shibuya. Below are some pics we took a few days ago of the exhibition space at T-Site.
