Quality designs are often like buses. You wait ages for one, then two come along at once. Thankfully I won’t make you stand out in the rain at the bus stop for much longer as the Welsh wizards over at Drone Boy Laundry just happen to have the two biggest drops since me reaching puberty.
This isn’t the first time I’ve featured DBL on Ahoodie, and the reason I can’t stop is that they keep coming up with more and more great ideas. The first of their new gargantuan garment releases comes in the form of a collaboration with the SAFE Foundation charity. The Cardiff-based organisation are working towards making positive changes in the world and it’s aims include nurturing indigenous responses to poverty issues and increasing access to basic human rights. Bit too much to take in? Let me put it this way: This release is limited to just 52 pieces. When you buy one it will fund a teacher in either India or Cambodia, for a week. So once all the tees are gone, they will have raised enough to fund a teacher for a whole year! Bet you’ll feel good about yourself then. That, and you’ll look super cool AND ladies will love you because you’re caring.
The second T-shirt has a lot simpler message: STYLE!
The “Three Letters” tee pays homage to the eternally trendy Yves Saint Lauren, with Drone Boy’s own initials emblazoned on the front in the same familiar style. Man, I remember when I was a kid, YSL was the baddest sh*t out there. To get those three letters on your shirt you had to do one of three things; 1) Get your rich Mummy and Daddy to buy you one, 2) know someone who could get them off the back of a lorry, or 3) go to a Turkish market. I won’t tell you how I got mine, but let’s just say I don’t have well-off parents. Anyway, this bold new design will definitely grab peoples attention and every time you wear it you’ll take a little trip down nostalgia avenue.
So now you know the brain waves behind the two tees, you might be wondering how they could make them seem any cooler. Well how about getting drum ‘n’ bass legend, High Contrast, to model them for you. Yep, that’ll pretty much do it! Both t-shirts are priced at £20 and are available from the DBL store.
