t’s

my favourite T.

my favourite T.

I really love vintage clothing shops.  The variety of people browsing and working there seem to   juxtapose our search for authentic originality vs. our mass media conformity.  I found this T in one of those shops,  I think it cost a dollar.

This was my first real food related shirt, circa early nineties this company went out of business before cooking became socially acceptable and “in”.  Influenced by some early iron chef japan ish theme, maybe this was the T that Joe Langhan saw while creating the food network in america in the early – mid  nineties…  If only they could have stayed afloat long enough to ride the food craze media wave.

The only reason I don’t wear this shirt is because it almost perished in a drunken candle accident that left me with some nice burns on my chest.  I’ll touch more on that in another post, i promise.

I’ll find a way to wear this part of a shirt again to glorify its vintage status, but if i can’t I think I might just frame it and use it in a fire safety seminar.

out for now,
