So, you're saying to yourself, Record Store Day 2009 is quickly approaching--but whatever will I wear?
Well, TVD's one step ahead of you.
In celebration of RSD09, TVD has partnered with Worn Free -- purveyors of a ridiculously cool line of shirts that indeed rock -- to wheedle you out of your wardrobe dilemma. Here's the schpiel:
"Worn Free reproduces original tees famously worn by such rock legends as John Lennon, Joey Ramone, Frank Zappa, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, Gram Parsons, Johnny Ramone and Joan Jett, among others – and regularly adds fantastic new images (of fantastic old shirts) to its catalog.
Celebrating punk fury, hippie utopianism, psychedelic excess and art-pop whimsy – not to mention the eye-popping graphics of celebrated artists like John Van Hamersveld – Worn Free shirts express the insurrectionary spirit of rock and roll in all its forms.
We’ve spent more than a decade combing worldwide photo archives of music and style icons, learning what they’ve been wearing and bringing it straight to you.
The tag inside each shirt is a sticker resembling a backstage pass, featuring either a photo of a rock star wearing the original shirt or a rendering of the design, with information documenting its initial date, artist and venue.
But despite their stellar images, these are no museum pieces. Made of fine, luxuriously soft cotton, Worn Free shirts are also decadently comfortable – and fit like your old favorites the first time you slip them on."
...and they come with the TVD stamp of approval. How can ya go wrong?
So, in a blatant attempt to get you to visit the site and peruse the T's, TVD and Worn Free will award two winners one shirt a piece! All you need to do is choose the design you wish to sport from their selection and post a comment as to why we should have your back on this one. Wordy, insightful, or damn funny comments appreciated.
We're also fully aware that TVD's readership is pretty darn global, so no matter where you're tuning us in, we'll send you the shirt for your effervescent commentary. Got that?
We'll choose two winners this coming Monday (4/6) so check out the site and get to commenting! You'll see some really cool designs from some pretty unexpected sources...
