I remember buying this shirt back when I was in high school, and it was that shirt that always got a conversation started or a high five or a thumbs up, etc. Fat Albert was one of my most favorite cartoons to watch when I was a wee lad, so you can imagine how elated I was when I was shuffling through Hot Topic and found it for sale in the late '90s. Sadly, the shirt met its demise while I was doing yard work with my father; we were cleaning up the yard after a particularly bad storm, and a rather sizeable tree branch snagged it and tore it pretty badly. I was...distraught.
Needless to say, I doubt I'd be able to squeeze myself into it now, but I do miss that shirt.
it eventually disintegrated, but I loved that shirt.
Indian art, way cool.
I'd like to say that of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most, but once the mind has gone missing, there's nothing left to notice the absence of anything, so instead I'll just say whoops on the swoosh (but that's still how I remember it).
with 'Life is short, trip hard' in a large blue Reebok square. 'Life is short, play hard' used to be the Reebok motto, if I remember correctly. Got it at Soldier Field in '92 for $10. My ex-wife "lost it" in a move several years later. I'm still trying to forgive her for that.
"Life is short; trip hard" with a Nike swoosh.
"I peaked at The Greek."
was a Deadagonia shirt. It had a Patagonia logo and said "Quality music for your next trip".
But I'd really like to get a new Year of the Ox, with the original gray shirt. I loved that art.
Also, the tie-dye surfer. I think I bought it in Ventura 83. The design and colors were perfect.
The one I'd really like to find again (fat chance, since I bought it in '81) was a simple Jerry handprint in a circle, in white ink on navy blue. It was in a local baseball card store whose owner was a Head, if I recall correctly. Probably wasn't official. The other two were.
