One of the highlights of the '80s was the emergence of great rap hits, like the Beastie Boy's "Paul Revere", presumably about Paul from Revere, who works at Ned Devine's. For duds with a throwback street vibe even Paul would dig, check Dolo Clothing.
Heavily influenced by '80s hip hop artists, the latest drop from Quincy's socially conscious streetwear label rocks tees, hoodies, and sweaters that incorporate motifs/inspiration from "jazz, street culture, youth, and spirituality", also the categories during a very confusing round of Jeopardy!. Fresh looks include the Relax Your Mind, a chocolate/yellow EPMD-tribute sweater that adds "...and let your conscious be free" under a row of power lines; the Run-DMC-styled Run Dolo black long-sleeve tee that reads "Confident. Driven. Aggressive"; and a yellow logo'd army green pull-over hoodie, which is also what the police in Wellesley say when Dee Brown tries to ride his bike around Lake Waban. For short-sleeve style, there's Stop the Violence, a black crewneck that depicts a handgun drawn out of NWA/KRS-One/Tupac lyrics; a slate-colored tee with "Dolo" written across the front in old-school graffiti; and the red/white logo pattern Corporate ID, which is infused w/ icons like headphones, FWRD/BKWD arrows, and a red spade, which is something no one will claim to have done if David writes a memoir.
To complete the look, Dolo also peddles fitted baseball hats like the all-black straight-billed BeanTown Champ and a navy Flexfit logo'd number billed as The Movement, most of which was away from Ned Devine's after Paul planted himself at the bathroom door demanding everyone hold up "one if by log, and two if by pee".
