MY FAVOURITE COLOUR STUDIO "MFC LEADOFF" JERSEY

http://www.mfcstudio.com/apparel/mfc-leadoff-jersey-in-teal
Well my computer seems to be back in good shape (warranty repairs always seem to take forever!), so I figured it was time to get back on the horse and write up some posts. I can't lie though, I've also been distracted by the unfolding baseball season. Besides my Mets doing well, I think this is panning out to be a really epic year. Pre-season predictions seem to have been thrown out the window, and events like the Royals/White Sox brawl and tomorrow's unfortunate "closed door" Orioles' game (the first in Major League Baseball's history) only add to the unpredicability.

My Favourite Color Studio, producers of the beautifully hand-illustrated Fungo Baseball Cards, is also bringing us a "first" that's actually worth celebrating. The "MFC Leadoff" jersey is the brand's inaugural offering of on-field baseball apparel, and it sparks the same feeling of nostalgia as the cards. It is available in three different colorways, and each includes old-school sleeve stripes and v-neck trim. You can find these American-made jerseys exclusively at mfcstudio.com, along with their newest set of baseball cards.

Monster Press delivers another phenomenal tee in the way only a printing company of their caliber can. Their expertise of the screen printing craft shows through every inch of the oversized discharge print. Craig Robson's "Pale Rider" illustration explodes in 7 colors, reminiscent of that well-worn band tee everyone thinks it's about time you part ways with. The shirt can be found only at Monster Press' sample store for £10 (roughly $15), and shipping is available worldwide.

BENJIE ESCOBAR X HUTCH LA "OLD ENGLISH"

http://www.hutchla.com/products/old-english-t-shirt-white
When I was going to school for art, I was obsessed with fonts. I wasn't skilled enough to create my own, but I spent hours scouring the internet for the perfect typeface to compliment whatever assignment I was working on. In turn I clocked just as many hours cataloging what I had collected. Somewhere in my home office is 5 or 6 zip disks (dating myself there) that are neatly organized, and a few more still awaiting review.

Benjie Escobar x Hutch LA's "Old English" tee is one for my fellow type fiends. In commemoration of the artist's "Take It Easy" show now at Hutch LA through 03.28.15, the two have put together a collection of shirts showcasing Escobar's Los Angeles meets Toon Town narrative. This shirt in particular features his spectacular hand-drawn Blackletter typeface. Some of my other favorite pieces are "For the Homies," "Stoned," and the "East Los" hooded windbreaker. Take in the entire collaboration online at hutchla.com, or visit their physical location at 4169 Verdugo Road in Los Angeles if you're nearby.
