Here is the text from the boot boyz biz "info" page for your enjoyment (amusement?):

Boot Boyz Biz is a project based research practice. Promoting access to ideas and activating knowledge is essential to our projects.

We investigate a wide range of phenomena, material we live by. We employ strategies of disinterment to produce new works that strive to open unique pathways.

👢-ing provides a model for connecting with histories and ideas, allowing us attempts to capture essence and process intertextual relationships.

We understand t-shirts as means for a public sphere and as intermediaries that allow for different levels of experience to be synchronized in spaces we inhabit.


Which is a pretty longwinded way to say that they sell graphic tees (and some sweatshirts and pants).

This is, uh, kind of low brow and not really a "fashion" graphic tee, but I've been into Midnight Rider. The brand is headed by this Iranian woman in Los Angeles who really loves country music (kind of a cool cross-cultural story, I think. I like it when people are into unexpected things). My understanding is that she's a fashion industry vet, but I don't really know much about her resume.

Anyway, she does this faux vintage country-rock tees. It's certainly "low brow" and kind of an Urban Outfitter product (they were, in fact, sold at UO). But I really like the stuff. There's a lot of detail here. The tees are kind of dyed in this chalky color so they have a lot of pre-worn vintage feel. They're also pick ripped the edges so they look frayed. The tees are all screen-printed, but the prints are cracked and faded. It's somewhat convincingly vintage looking.

Prices are reasonable. They're about $50 for a shirt. The stuff goes well with things like chore coats, fatigues, RRL, Visvim, and workwear type stuff.

Takahiro Miyashita’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection adjusts the levels of the alternative rock influences that inform his creative output. As with the actual music being celebrated, all subtlety has been purposefully set aside. Miyashita has taken famous imagery from celebrated Seattle scene photographer Charles Peterson and featured it prominently throughout the collection, from hyperbolic graphic tees to all over printed garments to reversible flaps.

Peterson’s black and white photography didn’t just document the nascent musical movement that would eventually be labeled grunge; it mythologized it. Peterson’s sometimes blurred, sometimes light streaked, wide-angle action shots captured the total live experience, rather than lead singer glamor poses. This anti-rock star ideal is replicated throughout the Spring/Summer collection, as the photographs become an aspect of Miyashita’s larger, intricately tailored, progressive aesthetic, rather than a singular focus.

TAKAHIROMIYASHITA The Soloist also highlights other aspects of Americana into the grunge-centric collection. Bomber jacket silhouettes made from reclaimed vintage quilt patterns, an oversized, label branded, poncho/blanket hybrid, and the designer’s own, distinctive takes on staple pieces.

Hm, yea, that design might be harder to pull off. This is the section with all the Waylon shirts:


I personally find the black shirts to be easier to wear in outfits, but the white ones can be cool too. I just think the washed-out color on the black ones make them look more authentic. That said, I like this shirt:


I also like their ZZ Top designs.

Also like this Grace Jones tee, but $200 is a lot of money for a t-shirt
