This shirt is classic. Classic logo, classic design, classic colourway. It breaks my heart that it only sold for $11. Kids are slipping.
Now this shirt by Down To Nothing is a current classic. I really enjoy this shirt. The font is nice and big, easy to read from across the room, and the message is great. A nice feature is that it DOES NOT SAY Down To Nothing on it. What about that? Great shirt.
Just another quality looking tshirt. Every time I peep this shirt, the Warzone Super Bowl of Hardcore tee comes to mind. I'm 100% positive that was the inspiration for this one. Great shirt.
Here's a laid back Floorpunch shirt. No mention of "Straight Edge" but that's cool, I guess. I think if the logo had been screened on straighter, it would have jacked the price higher. A great tee. Anyone got one in Large for me?
This shirt rules. No doubt. Jay Bil designed this one up. And then Jason Barrow GAVE them away to any kid who walked into Anchors Up that was X'ed up. What about that? He gave away these shirts. Great shirt.
The Final Mosh tee. Not many were made. Probably a top 5 show for me. Such an amazing time. Check youtube for the video. It was bananas start to finish. Great show, great 3 sided tee. Pretty decent price too.
In the mid 90s, Rev Records was big on embroidery. Maybe everyone was, but I distinctly remember Rev doing all sorts of embroidered stuff. I specifically recall an Into Another hoodie at my local Bull Moose. It was there for months. It was a XXL maroon hoodie with the giant Into Another star logo embroidered on it in a deep purple. Such a wackie hood. I wish I had picked it up. I wish I had not slept on this crewneck too. Crewneck - Crucial. Revelation Records - Crucial. Embroidered - ... Crucial? Well, at least it's pretty fucking awesome.
It seems weird to me that these two Have Heart items went for so cheap. Maybe the market is saturated, but I would have expected them to jump in price with the break up rumors coming true. Great design, and a HUGE "Straight Edge." You know I like that.
Right Brigade is awesome. So is this tee. Someone got a steal for a lousy $12. That's the price of 3 lattes from Starbucks. Someone won big.
I was pretty curious to see what this tee would do. I spotted it on ebay and took it for an older boot. That's the case. Turns out it is an early to mid 90s Chris Kelly (97A, Straight and Alert Fanzine) boot. Quality repro, no doubt. If it hadn't broken the $40 mark, I would have snagged it. WAY better than that Hundreds x Chain Of Strength collab.
I love this band. Great tee too.
Another simple, classic tee. Too bad it's pit stained. Maybe that'll oxyclean out. Good luck to the winner on that one. A great tee, regardless. Follow Through Crew!
Here's an older Uniform Choice shirt. It's not 4 or even 3 sided, but it's still damn cool. I was a little surprised at how low it ended honestly. Like I said, kids are crazy. And since Casali already owns one, you didn't have to fight him for it!
Here we see another Jay Bil masterpiece. Funny note from the auction:
The print is numbered 38of50 and signed by "Jay Balls" (no idea what that stands for, sorry if it's obvious).
That made me laugh. Jay Bil kills it with this one. I contemplated picking it up as the one I have is roughed up, but I slept. Look at that lineup! So ridic. CBGBS rip.
Remember when bright orange XL longsleeves were the rage? Or maybe a dark mustard XXL tee. Wow. This is a cool longsleeve but the color is a little too wild for most. That could explain the price tag it ended with. Good pick up for the winner of that one.
Side By Side rules. This demo tee was always a little silly for my taste, but you can't knock Side By Side. A great repro that went wildly under the radar.
Straight from the Jersey Shore, Hardware Fanzine came with this great shirt. The fanzine put out two shirts. Both are great. I like the grey one a little more. I'm pretty anti-partial to black shirts at this point. Give me ash grey or white.
Cold World always hit hard in the merch arena. They always had some sort of crazy rip off tee. Whether it was North Face, Side By Side or BAPE, they always put out a great shirt. This one is nice in that it is SIMPLE. A one color BAPE rip off. I like it (even though it is a black tee).
Bidding started at $99 for this watch and it didn't move for days. Then someone jumped on that BIN price and got themselves a great looking watch. Condition seems great. Good for them.
What's the deal with this longsleeve? I'm just not sure. Was it reprinted at some point? Everyone of these longsleeves I have seen have been beat to shit. I've owned FOUR in my lifetime, and they were all super faded and semi shredded. Either a) this guy found a gem or b) this is some reprint. I know the seller had some boots/repros up at the same time so I just don't know.
There you have it folks. April & May. Good times. Peace.
The Hundreds Hardcore Series ...
-- Tuesday, May 26, 2009
The Hundreds got together with some old hardcore heads in the street wear scene: Johnny Cupcakes, Benny Gold, maybe Ryan Hoffman too, and came up with these designs. Some of you may know Bobby Hundreds from the hardcore scene. He's been down for many years now. I don't know what to say about these shirts though. It seems like they were be out of place in the Hardcore scene AND the Street wear scene. Maybe it's just me. Hell, I was complaining earlier about how solo Morrissey stuff is boring. And many people proclaimed, "it's just you." Could happen twice in one day. Weirder things have gone down before.
For the full scoop on the designers and shirts, click here. You can check eBay for the previous round of Hardcore shirts (H2O, Avail, ...) that hit the street.

Show in Hudson MA on May 22 ...
-- Saturday, May 02, 2009
You know what's weird? I drive by this Eagles facility every morning on my way to work (it's less than 2 miles from my house), and most mornings I think to myself, "I should book a show there." And boom, someone beat me to it!
I hope it has a good parking lot as I can see a lot of kids coming out for this one. That's the only thing I worry about that place. Maybe I should look into the VFW hall in Hudson. Great parking lot!
