INFEASIBLE: Armani Exchange t-shirts

There’s this weird trend in fashion, starting from the late nineties till the present, that I like to call BATTLE OF THE BRANDING. For some reason, a bunch of brands decided, “Hey guys, fuck original designs for our t-shirts, let’s throw our name on there with some FuNkY lettering! Yay!” The people at AX have always been particularly keen on the idea, and also happen to be the flat out worst at integrating their logo into the design of t-shirts.

Let me preface this Feasible option with a disclaimer: I don’t like logo integration at all really. OP just happens to be the best of the logo-crazy crap (like being the most handsome of the cavemen). You could walk by me in this and I wouldn’t scoff too loud.
INFEASIBLE: Red shirts with black designs
(From Vices Admire)
Black on red is just an eyesore. It’s especially bad when the designs are text – why would you ever want to make reading your company’s name a headache-inducing experience? Sheesh.

This is one of my all time favorite shirts. A bit macabre, but the design is hot and look at how those blood-flowers stand out on the black background! I’m gushing.
INFEASIBLE: Zombie-referencing shirts
Wearing something that refers to zombies, Dawn of the Dead, feasting on brains, etc. is a very small step up from shirts with World of Warcraft dragons and shit on them. Yes, zombies are awesome; yes, they conceptually embody the terror of mass-consumerism in late capitalism – don’t talk about such things through your clothes.
Feasible: Los Angeles Coroner shirts

Hey, I didn’t say all morbid stuff was off-limits. If you’re going to go gimmick for a day, this is something I could get behind.
INFEASIBLE: Nintendo decal/reference t-shirts
(From Old Glory)
Nerdy fashion ain’t fashion at all. Get the hell out of that racket, Old Glory.
Feasible: Well-designed decal t-shirts
(Brought you by Enclothe)
T-shirts that show some artistic merit, however, are far from nerdy and go very well under an unbuttoned or semi-buttoned dress shirt. Enclothe has a lot of quality/morbid shit on their t-shirts, e.g. above, and it’s also run by a goon – definitely check it out.
