Not what I was expecting!

Those are quite awesome, actually. The models are doing a great job of capturing what I feel the "mood" of those typefaces are, too. Especially Cooper!

Hey Google, help me out here: 28000 yen to dollars

$336.70 you say? You sure about that? Wow. Some people sure do have more ambition than sense or talent, don't they?

You know what I dislike? When people derail posts right out of the gate by linking to some other tangentially related thing, instead of actually commenting on the post.

Also, Americans aren't going to fit in these T shirts. Do they have anything in an O?

Heh, there is a very fine line between a finished shirt and a raw piece of fabric with an edge.

I fully support this attempt to separate fools from money.

These shirts look cool.

I rather like Courier.

Sorry to offend your delicate sensibilities Hermitosis. I felt it was just a different side of the same dodecahedron, that's all.

"‘T’ shirts are T shirts that was designed... "

Sorry, I had to stop reading at that point.

Scientific proof that very attractive people look very attractive no matter what they wear.

There is nothing more satisfying the reading pretentious artist statements where they try to justify their work and make it seem like they are the next Picasso or Rembrandt... and oh, by the way, we're selling these. Bletch.

No Comic Sans? Outstanding.

The price makes it all comic sans to me.

Never has Cooper Black looked so good.

Hear that? That's the sound of countless crafty people getting their hands on some black jersey fabric and running up their own knockoffs of these.

I think they're really neat and would totally try my hand at making one. Super fun.

I don't think those models are on board with this concept.
posted by theredpen at 12:45 PM on November 17, 2010


A model wearing comic sans would be about as sexy as clown porn.
posted by condour75 at 12:49 PM on November 17, 2010


So... you guys are saying $300 for what is actually a pretty unique dress is too much, you're a fool if you buy it, the designer is pretentious and too ambitious, and everyone involved should feel bad? Also, because the artist's statement isn't a perfect translation from what I assume is their first language (Japanese), it is reasonable to dismiss it entirely?

I was almost completely confused...then the pictures of the models wearing the things loaded about three minutes later...

One of them is called "calson" when the font should indeed be spelled "caslon". It's what I do: I find typos.

Fuck that:) I've just found two brilliant Xmas presents thanks to cyphill's Literary T-shirts link!

Yeah, Cyphill's play-on-words link is appreciated while the American obesity bash is not.

These are beautiful. It's like Project Runway if they had time to do good work.
