Maybe it’s the sunburn on the back of your calves. Maybe it’s the stack of work you “took home over the weekend” in order to “leave a little early” on Friday. Or maybe it’s the lingering effects of yesterday’s boozy brunch, which led to yesterday’s boozy BBQ.
At least you’re not the lead singer of King’s of Leon who, in the middle of a show in Dallas on Friday night, said "I'm gonna go back stage for a second, I'm gonna vomit, I'm gonna drink a beer and I'm gonna come back out and play three more songs." Three out of four ain’t bad, pal.
Point is, every weekend’s a long weekend in August. Which is why you feel a bit like this yawning sloth right now. It’s also why we’re here to help with The Reentry.
The band t-shirt has been a staple of our casual wardrobe for a while—really, ever since that one Deerhoof show—but that’s because rock stars are cool. Bloggers, not so much.
But as in many things, Andrew Sullivan is the exception. The combination of an awesome beard and a balanced understanding of new media make him the closest our tribe has to a rock star, so he’s teamed up with the nautical experts (and Provincetown residents) at Rogues Gallery for a trio of screenprinted tees.
Think of them as a stylish, subtle way of saying, “I’m honest enough to admit my own mistakes” or “I like looking out of windows.” It should occupy the same place in your wardrobe as the concert tee—but instead of a few hours of great music, you’ll be commemorating one of the stranger collaborations in menswear.
Having said that: if anyone wants to collaborate with us on a line of branded suspenders, we’re not hard to find.
