Gap's 1969 indigo denim bomber jacket which I've been eyeing for the past couple of weeks. Seeing that it's criminal not to put at least one patch on a denim jacket, I spent an hour after that searching for some embroidered flair that would ensure this new coat fit my style. I found exactly what I needed over at No Fun Press. The first patch I dropped in my cart was the Biggie homage, "Gimme The Loot," followed by their "Box Logo." I plan on sewing the first over where the left pocket would normally be, and the second rectangular one on the opposite sleeve. In addition to patches, the brand also offers a bunch of sick pins and apparel. Give it all a look over at nofunpress.com.
Chris Piascik's "Please Don't Kill My Vibe" from Cotton Bureau is backed and all ready to go to print, but you can still get in on the action before the purchasing window closes at 1pm EST on Monday, 09.01.14. As always Chris' typography is on point, and I think we can all get behind his anti-buzzkill message. Visit the Cotton Bureau site to snag this excellent tee before it's too late.
Julien Croyal's (aka JulienTees) "Space Fight" breathes new life into two of the most recognizable designs. He's pitted them against one another in a videogame-esqe battle for t shirt dominance. You can find it now in the JulienTees' TeePublic shop with the option of four different color blanks.

Benjie Escobar. The "Infinity Pizza" and "Burger" caps are not only well executed designs; close up product shots reveal some first-rate embroidery. You can almost taste the sesame seeds sprinkled on the top of that "B." Both are available exclusively through Hutch LA for $30 apiece, and the first 10 orders will be blessed with a free signed risograph and lapel pin from Escobar.
camping is that it gives me an excuse to abandon my cell phone and computer for the weekend. Sometimes you just need to "unplug" and appreciate the analog world that's out there. One thing I can't sacrifice though is my radio, as the music adds to the relaxation factor. TIMBER!'s "Nervous Cutdown" is for those of us with an affinity for the outdoors and an appreciation for good music. Not only do I consider this design to be among the best Black Flag tributes (right down to the title), but I also like that artist Chad Eaton's hypnotic woodgrain line work is center stage. You can find this new tee and five others right now in the TIMBER! Etsy store, also joined today by a "hairy" new 2015 calendar.
