Edition 144: The Not Safe For Work Shirt
The Not Safe for Work Shirt
, more affectionately known as "the Boob shirt" is a collaborative effort with the lovely and always well behaved women at Gravel & Gold. The hand drawn print is a calling card of sorts for our neighbors at Gravel & Gold, an excellent conversation starter and a joyous celebration of the female form. Originally drawn on acetate by Cassie McGettigan with some help from friends willing to lend a boob, the print was then burned to silkscreen for application on items ranging from pillowcases to durable canvas totes.
The girls have always wanted to offer a men's shirt and we have always been crazy about the print. Needless to say, we got along swimmingly with the gals and had lots of laughs concepting the product and photographing the result. Constructed from a 7 oz cotton canvas and washed for softness, this is what every man actually wants for Valentine's day: to be covered with a cornucopia of bosoms.
