Words

Although I do find myself a bit disappointed in fashion brands for constantly using the same musical references for graphics, John Lennon's likeness couldn't come close to ruining this wonderful dual-sided tee from Sasquatchfabrix.

This shirt jacket by Band of Outsiders builds on a classic military reference with a number of interesting details. Flap bellows pockets, a substantial brass zipper with contrasting tape either side, and their signature full-length box pleat combine to create something unique yet still wholly understated, like much of the brand's output.
