Nothing like a bit of Rick Owens to make one growl “I’m Batman” from a rooftop. As I type this, the glass in my sliding doors sounds like it’s about to shatter into a million slivers and all the light bulbs are blinking in unison. Yes, the winds are back with a vengeance here in Angel City, which means, inevitably, one thing: long drapey things ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
I make special Batman face for you. And speaking of Batman, have you seen the H&M fall collection? Too heavy on the shoulder pads for my liking, but hawt dayumn! I made out like a bandit with the tight zipper pocket trousers you see here, a mega-hood-cowl sweater, a shmancy rouched zip-up top, and a cape. Oh yes indeed, a real cape, complete with hood and arm holes. I’m sure it’ll make an appearance here in no time at all.
On to this T-shirt. Let it be known I am extremely picky when it comes to tees. I buy one design from Threadless annually and that’s about it. However! I think this might be the coolest new shirt I own. I dig the protruding spine, the pale pink it’s printed on, and, most of all, the article printed on the inside. It was designed by Knotan for T-post and it’s called “Sexy Apocalypse“.
T-post is doing something neat: they publish what they call a “T-shirt magazine”. From the “About” page:
Every six weeks, subscribers receive a new t-shirt in the mail. News story on the inside, artist interpretation on the front. All-around conversation piece. Our subscribers don’t know what the story is about or who’s designed until they get it. The editorial process of T-post works much like any other magazine except we can only pick one current news topic a month.
Part micro-magazine, part fancy secret T-shirt club, ya hurrd? I like that the peeps at T-post call their tees “conversation pieces”. Since the articles are printed inside the shirts, one would have to undress in order to properly discuss the issue’s topic. Conversation piece, indeed.
