KIM THE BUTCHER | HANDPRINTED “THE MILO CLEAVER” SHIRT

Damn, want to do this post weeks ago, when I got this great shirt by KIM THE BUTCHER fresh out of the mailbox. But what shall I say … holidays, business dates and a lot to do in my real life job … okay now it works. I was so happy getting this “now sold out” shirt, because in real it looks even better than on the photo in the “THE BUTCHER SHOPPE”! Kim did the shirt because of celebrating “be into Punk for over 20 years” himself. Great idea, so I can be part of his party and the owner of this f***ing great shirt, which is a homage to his very first love the “DESCENDENTS”. You know the “Milo goes to College” cover? If you don’t you’ll find it some pics below. The shirt is a typical “Butcher” style interpretation. I think the “F.Dick” cleaver from the late 19th century is covered by “The Butcher’s” glasses. The shirt is hand printed on 200 gr cotton. And Kim, thx for all the patches — !!! pics | LTG

With the first warm days this year and feeling a bit the spirit of summer, I wanna show you a brand new label which is now available at www.b74.de: SUNSET SURF. This label is inspired by the west coast surf culture from the early 1900’s upt to the 1980’s. The graphics are about the Southern Californian surfing expression. The fabric is well known and often copied, but never surpassed the original vintage style slub yarn made by Johnson Motors Inc. 100% ringspun slub cotton, traditional slim fit with the signature self rib and suture stitch. Cut, sewn, dyed, printed and hand finished in the city of Los Angeles. All graphic art is hand drawn. T-shirts are garment dyed and pre-shrunk. pics | B74 & freeimages

THE GREASER “MICK T-SHIRT” | THE SELVEDGE YARD x NICK THE TAILOR COLLABORATION

Yesterday I went to the customs to pick up my “Greaser Mick” collaboration t-shirt. Following TSY “THE SELVEDGE YARD” from the first days on I am interested in checking cool blogs, I was so happy to get this extraordinary t-shirt. What a cool motive for me as a great DISNEY and Rockabilly aficionado. The illustration was made by NICK THE TAILOR a Philadelphian artist and tattooist – very well done Nick! The shirt is high quality printed in Philadelphia on a 100% cotton American Apparel stuff made in the USA. Because of a good working networking I saw this great shirt the first time at DON SCHWEDEs Facebook site linked to his great blog “THE LAST DON” – thx. pics | LTG

“THE” PRINTED T-SHIRTS by THE HILL-SIDE SPORTSWEAR

Some days ago I picked up these nice T-shirts by THE HILLSIDE @ VOLLS. KLAUS offers these in 3 colors: army green, french blue and faded black. It is a pity that the blue shirt just came in in M and XL – not my sizes. I love this simple but so nice and classic “THE” print. The shirts are made of ring-spun cotton jersey. Some more facts: garment-dyed in USA, screen-printed by hand with water-based ink, split hem at side seams, semi-circle back yoke panel, The Hill-Side Sportswear woven label, 100% cotton and for sure Made in USA. These so nice lookin’ high quality shirts are not online @ volls.de, so send  Klaus just an email. pics | LTG
