In my last post I confessed that I become easily obsessed with things – all sorts of things. I’ll be sharing a lot of them with you over the next few days. In addition to fonts, I’ve developed a covetous fixation on screenprinted shirts. I used to be a no-T-shirt kind of gal: I thought they looked too casual and dressed down, and I’ve long been a hater of unflattering crewnecks (I’m a believer in “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”).
Lately, however, I’m in love with how straightforward and comfortable they are; even their boyish edge. And with all the awesome independent apparel companies out there printing their own kick-ass designs, T-shirts have become wearable art.
76 Garments is my latest T-shirt crush. Their products are American-made with a vintage aesthetic, pioneering spirit and hard-working ethos. From their website:
Truth leads to authenticity. We handcraft more, experiment more, and strip away veneers so that our designs are pure and potent. The results not only look good, they are good. These guiding principals owe much to historic American values, and are essential for creating the future you want for yourself. If you choose to wear one of our garments, please, Wear with Vigor.
I just stumbled across these guys, so I haven’t had a chance to purchase their entire collection yet. But with all of their shirts currently on sale, and free shipping on orders over $50, I’m sure to have added the following designs to my hoard before long.
