TSOTW: Everyting tee

For this week’s installment of T-Shirt of the Week, I’m rather shamelessly plugging my own brand, Selector, known for obscure reggae references done in nice type, according to some discerning friends anyway. We just dropped this new color of the popular Everyting tee for Fall/Autumn 2017. Also, on a related note, we are currently doing our Labor Day sale, wherein you can get all the stuffs, at 40% off the usual price of said stuffs. Check out the Selector online shop and use promo code LABORDAZE40. Enjoy. Or fulljoy, as the case may be.

TSOTW: Iced Out

Is Reykjav√≠k in the house? Without a doubt. The weirdos at Stay Weird Forever have been busy staying weird, and now they’re back with another great T-shaped garment for your weird consideration. It says “Iceland” and features the country’s most famous export on it too.

FOOD DESIGN IN ITALY

What’s cooking? If you’re like me – you love Italian food, and you are also keen on design – then this new title from Electa is a total no-brainer, right? What’s not to love about a thorough documentation of all the wonderful ways that Italians have branded, advertised, packaged, and marketed their delicious cuisine over the last century or so? The author, Alberto Bassi, is an associate professor and director of Industrial Design at the University IUAV in Venice (Italy, not SoCal, duh!). The thick paperback tracks no less than 80 beloved Italian food products, from the initial concept through to packing, communication, and advertising. The impressive visual assets within FOOD DESIGN IN ITALY include drawings, posters, magazine ads, stills from T.V. commercials, and more. The lineup is mouthwateringly familiar for the most part, including the likes of Barilla pasta, San Pellegrino water, Campari aperitif, Bacci chocolates, Nutella spread, Illy coffee, and, I’m getting super hungry right now…gotta run. Ciao! [See More]

TSOTW: Phife Dawg

LA’s own Bleu & Cream mash up some iconic Keith Haring style artwork, with the classic ATCQ red/black/green pattern, for an incredible T-shaped tribute to the Trini Gladiator, the gifted emcee Phife Dawg, who unfortunately passed away last year. Hutch Exclusive!

CA$H $ALE

TSOTW: Come As You Are

You might already know I have a weakness for musically-inspired t-shirts so perhaps it’s no surprise this week’s T-Shirt Of The Week is by Los Angeles-based brand DRTY, who pay tribute to Kurt Cobain of Nirvana fame on this one.
