Yep, Taavo Somer is an example of a (barely) good idea run wild. There were guys in some parts of NYC and and LA turning vintage tees inside out and stencilling "witty" sayings on them about 5 years ago. I think it's a sign of too much money being controlled by too few braincells to buy a tee-shirt for $88. Go to Upper Playground or Threadless.com as someone else suggested, and you can get between 3 and 8 tees with cool graphics and no "ironic" sayings on them for the same cash. My New Pornographers tee is getting a little beaten up, so I may just turn it inside out and stencil "People who pay $88 for "vintage" tees are wankers." And I'll wear that to Barneys. Now that, that would be fun. BTW, if you guys have $88, send it my way, and I'll do up some of the same for you.
