What I’m trying to get across is that for people who highly curate and intellectualize their outfits, wearing a hat that says “don’t trip” is corny in my opinion. If @dieworkear was my stoner cousin who was 27 and lived in his moms basement (listening to Mac Miller) id think it was more appropriate 🤷🏽‍♂️

Clothing brings about nostalgia, which I think those hats also evoke.

'Don't Trip' stuff just looks stoopid. And although I don't like that they are using the old Free & Easy logo, I also know that F&E was entirely premised on reappropriating and recreating American style in the first place, so what goes around, I guess... but still don't think it says much for their inventiveness, it just comes across as low-rent shitty opportunism.

I like the script a lot. Funky. The T looks a little off and reads like a F at first glance. Conceptually I like it, but I'm not super on the design.
