I'm Fantastic Button–Up
This shirt came from my anxiety of wanting to make something that wasn't another t–shirt. I don't know if I regret making these or not because of how hard it was to produce. The film printer I use to burn my screens for printing was glitching out so I had to align one color without registration marks, and I never used an embroidery machine before so setting up took a long time. But behold, the shirts that I've sweated over is finally released.
I always wanted to make a shirt that if found at a thrift store, someone would assume the shirt is from the 80s and not contemporary and I think I came pretty close! I definitely want to make more work that follows this type of complexity of printing and overlooked garments.
The back shirt is a 5 color print with glitter specialty ink so you shine in the bowling alley light & the front is a custom designed Koysun embroidery patch, made to remind you of how fire you look wearing the shirt to the point that you're contributing to global warming.
• Model with long hair is wearing a medium while model with short hair is wearing a large.
• Wash cold–In the case of any black pigment bleeding onto the white part of the shirt, continue to wash and the loose black dye will slowly fade. Apologies, the manufacturer really screwed me over and I didn't find out until after printing. Lesson learned, I always gotta do wash tests before production. Shirt's still rad though I promise.
