The Custom Club: All Over Prints

On Thursdays we often riff on custom clothing, specifically made-to-measure suits and shirts. Today however, we wanted to show another type of custom work we do: textile printing. 

Our first foray into textile printing was with our California Aloha Shirt. Not being able to find a Hawaiian print we truely loved, we worked with local artist and good friend, Dave Muller, to draft our own print. We found a great printer, sent the fabric down to Los Angeles and crossed our fingers. The print turned out perfect and the shirts were a huge success. 

Since then, we have collaborated with Art in the Age to re-create a vintage print from the Philadelphia University’s textile archives, with Gravel and Gold to bring about the "Not Safe for Work Shirt" and most recently with Mailchip to create some far out "Monkey Toile" shirts. 

For us it’s one more reason to get excited about shirting and most of all a good excuse to work together with good friends. We hope you enjoy.
