Musings on Men’s Fashion – Review of a T-Post tee

For menswear.

Anything can go on a t-shirt these days. Jokes, pockets, caricatures of Judith Butler, frills. So why not editorials?

That’s T-Post’s angle, a group of Swede who champion their shirts as “the world’s first wearable magazine[s].” Ambitious idea – as you can see, their first “issue” addressed questionable collegiate classes promoting the study of marijuana farming, pornography, and other conventional “vices”. The articles’ fun, but not terribly well-written. I feel like the novelty of skimming someone’s mediocre argued tee-print wears off fairly quickly.
Social commentary isn’t the only weirdness happening on this tee. A fully reversible piece, the inside features this, uh, unsettling image. I’m not sure what scissors and dirty bags have to do with classes about drugs and sex, but hey, I graduated a while ago, what do I know about university? This much is true: The shirts themselves are durable and the stitching’s proper. If this kind of “unique” expression fits your game, check out this Swedish operation at t-post.se.

What’s Wrong With This Picture? (4/6/08)

For menswear.

This Week’s Fuck-Up: Casey Alderige
Way to be, eh. Nice beaten and threading jeans, a sickly-yellow colored t-shirt sporting a brilliant, timeless adage (“Hog’s breath is better than no breath at all”) in a compressed font and did he just happen to walk through a sprinkler or something to that effect? And I guess he’s happy about all that?
