t-shirt

Street spotted this out on my walk today:

Camouflage-Scoop-Neck-Raglan-Tshirt

Picture a Jared Leto looking guy about 6″6′ in height weighing 90lbs with that hanging off of him.  Yea I immediately jumped to the conclusion that he was gay… don’t get all bent out of shape.  I don’t care that he was gay, he wore that shirt with authority and I almost felt like telling him that.  Do gay guys ever get compliments from straight guys?  Probably not, it’s a slippery slope I’m assuming most don’t want to tread near.  Regardless, this guy didn’t have a care in the world that his shirt was clearly from the women’s department, good for him.  I like how society is going toward less people caring about trivial shit like that too.  Old people though you need to watch out for… they will continue to drop offensive gay and racist statements at any moment.

$34 from Urban Outfitters if you want to make a blurring gender lines type statement, or if you have a girlfriend you think would look hot in it.

If they made a men’s crewneck raglan with this theme I would be all over it.

Givenchy-Airplane-Print-Tshirt

Looking at the t-shirt by itself it’s really hard to even focus because so much is going on.  A closer look reveals layers of WWII style fighter planes, superimposed overtop of a closeup of the propeller area of one of those planes.  There is some mean looking weather going on in the background, some obligatory stars and crests, and what looks like the Gang Starr logo in the center as well, … and that’s just the front!  On the back we see the stars continue along the neck, some clouds and some jersey style numbers.

How much you ask?  A measly $800 over at Bergdorf Goodman.

W T F?  Oh I get it… this is one of those things that is so retarded and expensive, that if you actually own it then you’re automatically better than everyone else *eye roll*.  I actually saw this t-shirt and the similar looking hoodie ($1170 for that) at a local menswear boutique and said to the salesman “I bet strictly high school hypebeasts buy these.” to which he replied “Ya, mainly with they come in with their parents and that’s what they want… we sell out of the popular sizes quickly”.  No surprise there.  I’d hope as a grown man, even a grown rich man, one would have enough taste and appreciation for the value of a dollar to not waste 800 of them on such an awful looking t-shirt.  Oh and please, if you’re ever planning on pairing a graphic print shirt that looks anything like this, with a plaid long-sleeve DON’T.  Do yourself and the world a favor and turn that shirt into a makeshift noose in your nearest closet.  

Additionally, if you clicked on one of the above links and were like “Whoa there’s a bomber jacket in that print.  WANT!” even after you saw the close-up of it and realized it was $2185, I really have nothing insulting enough on the tip of my tongue that I feel would accurately express how I feel about you.

On the non-military related clothing tip, Givenchy did have quite a few great looking t-shirts in the past such as the Great White Shark, and the Rottweiler.  No matter what the price is, the really unfortunate part of being such a high profile brand is everything that looks even remotely good gets played out really quick because Kanye wears it immediately and then every stylist on earth throws it on their celebrity clients.

A exact reproduction of the original WWII U.S. Navy contract white t-shirt right down to the printed contract number inside the neck:

G.I.s and sailors of the US military in WWII were issued with these basic white underwear Ts, and were often seen stripped down to just this basic garment when working in hot environments, or relaxing on the ship’s decks. As was often the case, with their usual casual way of wearing their attire, it was they who started a trend that made it cool to be seen in just your underwear.

Anchor tattoo and bravado sold separately   

I wonder if Eastman sees the irony behind making these t-shirts in Japan?  Yea I know it’s likely a cost issue because U.S. labor is expensive, but off the top of my head I happen to know a few U.S. companies with the loop-wheel looms required the make these t-shirts to spec without a side seam.

£40 ($64 USD) over at Eastman.

When in doubt, always throw camo on it 😉

I’m continually surprised at the parties involved in some of these collabs.  The Rolling Stones?  I know they probably just licensed the lips and tongue logo to A Bathing Ape, and had nothing to do with the actual creative direction… but still surprising.

The shirts are available at ZOZOTOWN. ¥7,140 ($90 USD) for the t-shirt, and ¥9,240 ($117 USD) for the 3/4 length.
