Before a recent flight, I downloaded Alto’s Adventure: An endless snowboard odyssey, and ended up being glad I had. It’s sort of a side-scrolling racing platform game, although this one generally scrolls diagonally from the upper left to the lower right, as you glide down mountainsides.

The capsule includes this brand new graphic tee, inspired by the ubiquitous “Detroit Vs Everybody” tees.
This week’s T-Shirt of the Week goes to this fun new graphic from Speedy’s Liquor. California Love positions deceased rapper Tupac Shakur and The Smiths frontman Morrissey such that they seem to be in a romantic embrace.

This week’s T-Shirt of the Week selection is arguably slightly unscrupulous on my part – it’s another tee from the new Selector x 50 Words On Grey capsule collection currently available in the 50 Words On Grey online shop. The original lettering for this Best By Any Test tee was done by my talented friend Max “86era” Lord, outta Russia.
