Being born in the 80s has certain advantages -- you're young enough to have missed Vietnam, but old enough to find out exactly what happened in Vietnam from Forrest Gump (dude got shot in the butt!). For clothes from people who don't even remember the original A-Team, Eighties Babies
Dropping this week, the sophomore line from EB rocks a handful of colorful streetwear-meets-prepster graphic tees, all spawned as a side venture by the 80s born Hub native and rap manager of Samuel Adams, a Wayland-bred Trinity College-educated rapper (you're really regretting that waitlist, aren't you Tufts?). Graphics-wise, there's NY-Z, a black crewneck emblazoned with the visage of Brooklyn's finest (Jay-Z, not Frank Serpico) atop a teal colorblock detail; the Sammy, a white short-sleeve v-neck with an image of the aforementioned Sam Adams; and a white cotton number boasting a blue whale graphic and the all-caps word INHALE, which is great, though who doesn't hate Waiting to Exhale? Other clever designs sporting the EB signature include The Family, a short-sleeve grey deep v-neck picturing a white silhouetted baby bro holding a baby girl's hand above the words "A Family Label"; The USA (a white scoopneck w/ a large blue logo and lowercase script); and The Tengo Hambre, a short-sleeve jobbie featuring a large teal walking baby logo above the Spanish phrase for "I am hungry," also Rich Garces' bullpen catch phrase
Because it eventually gets cold, EB's planning ahead with a new fall/winter collection that will include a veritable cornucopia of warm crewneck sweatshirts and long sleeve cotton tees -- to which Forrest would say "something fits me!".
