This week’s T-Shirt Of The Week is this meme-driven wonder from Los Angeles-based brand BTLG. It deftly mashes up the slightly disturbing Instagram phenomenon that is #SaltBae – a chef who lovingly caresses his meats (that is not a dirty joke, btw) and got famous for flamboyantly sprinkling some salt. BTLG have combined that with the equally famous E-40 line, “Sprinkle me, mane.” Get it at Hutch.
Happy Friday, here’s your friendly neighborhood T-Shirt of the Week from my reggae tee brand/side project Selector.
Sorry, no time for blogging! Capitalism demands that we work really hard all year so we can afford to buy nice presents for the people we love (instead of say, just hanging out together, you know). And it was good. If you’re in the mood for some obscure reggae t-shirts, hoodies, hats, and things of that nature, I GOT YOU FAM! Ok, back to shopping…
Apologies for the shameless side project self-pluggery, on a Wednesday no less, but hey, Selector is having its biggest sale of the year right now. Good time to get some obscure reggae gear on the discount! Get 45% OFF with promo code FORTYFIVE. Sale ends midnight on Monday 11/28.
This week’s T-Shirt of the Week is by my talented friend Kaplan a/k/a Kapache, in collaboration with Kauai-based label Aloha Exchange. Aside from looking amazing, proceeds from this design go towards the family of Lucas Makana Riley – a young man from Hawaii who was killed in a collision with a drunk driver. Available for both men and women.
For this very special, one-day-late installment of T-Shirt of the Week, Halloween edition, I nominate this new bootleg concert tee from the good people at DRTY. Wu-Tang fans will no doubt recognize the riff on a) Enter the 36 Chambers cover art and b) the mask from the Scream movie series. Get the paper! More info here.
This week’s T-Shirt of the Week is a recently reissued classic from Selector, first released back in 2009, with typography by the very talented Anthony “Bones” Harrison (interviewed). The “Downtown Top Ranking” phrase went on to become the name of a successful series of weekly reggae parties run by the good people at Deadly Dragon Sound in NYC, which continues to this day.
