We’ve all seen it: obnoxious arrangements of neon, a picturesque sunset, moderately offensive, but still somehow motivational, one liners or in my case, wise old men. The graphic tee: a staple in the modern douchbag’s wardrobe, but seemingly able to transcend all scenes and their -sters, it is truly a sartorial piece for the ages.
I like to think this tee has a certain ‘real’, in the ‘hashtag real talk’ sense, sentiment. What I mean is, this ain’t no ‘I’m with stupid’ shit, this is ‘American Apparel – there’s a Santa-seeming-man on my chest’ shit. I also feel as though that if my personality was to somehow manifest into a t-shirt, it would most definitely be black and white and include things like a beard and guitar.
Nothing compliments a slightly obnoxious graphic tee like a lil leather. I’ve written several times now, about my search for the perfect leather jacket. This tan fellow has been my fave find so far. Alliteration. There’s nothing like an obnoxiously high popped collar to go with your obnoxiously obnoxious graphic tee. Obnoxious.
