@DoubleDouble Dig both those tees. Best to contact the bands directly via their sites, assuming they have ones, and ask. Even inter-band shit can get weird when things go awry, so I wouldn’t sweat it too much. I’m older than you, but both those scream proper dark jeans and beat up Doc’s or engineer/combat boots to me ?‍♂

Also, on Discord you don't have to worry about double posting!

Came here to ask: how do people wear their band t-shirts? I have the feeling this was discussed recently but can't find the conversation again. Lately I've been really into stoner rock and I would love to buy some t-shirts and support the artists, but last time I wore one was in my teens, with jeans and converse. I can totally do that again, but now that I'm in my 30s I feel like I'm cosplaying my younger self.
I don't like layering over band tees because you're hiding the awesomeness but then again I live in a warm climate. When I do layer, it's under vintage military shirts or faded jean jackets. For pants I usually go with well-worn 501s (blue or black) or fatigues with legit distressing -- no faux.

I've come full circle after wearing mostly only band tees in my 20s, selling/donating almost all of them in the last decade and now buying tour shirts and bootlegs from the instagram sellers making limited high quality ones. Generally been wearing the open shirt of some type with them and jeans.

I think some streetwear outfits (like real streetwear and not SWD) look best with new sneakers, such as very crisp AF1s or Jordans.
we don’t do dirty kicks man. That’s a no no
I see it in the treatment of Air Forces across different groups in the street and it's one of the most interesting things in street style to me. I know dudes who won't wear the same pair of uptowns more than five times, others who have 20+ pairs of them. First scuff or crease and they're gone. Vastly different things being signaled even with the same shoes.
seeing cwgs in nyc absolutely fry their white uptowns like a pair of chucks ?

Had to google “cwgs” and first came up with Colorado Water Garden Society before finally arriving at what I believe is the correct answer.
