They say if you want something done right you have to do it yourself, but then again, "they" are probably the same people who called the police on Happy Garden Spa. Pleasuring you with sweet self-made gear, The Bare Tree
From a Wisco-based Chi Art Institute grad who grew so fed up with the lack of cool-yet-eco-responsible tees he started making 'em himself, TBT's expanded into a wide-ranging, still-handmade line of gear printed with green-friendly inks that are water-based (but not Ace-of-based, as then your stuff wouldn't exist after 1994). T-style action includes "I Listen", with an oversized pair of vintage headphones sandwiched around the titular phrase in Japanese; a butcher-style diagram of a Fugu with loads of "poison" and a small cut of "Tasty Fish!"; and a handlebar-mustachioed moose next to the phrase "Moosestache", though anyone who tells you ungulates groom their facial hair is full of Bullwinkle. He's also big into belts, with heavy-duty cotton webbing attached to rectangular buckles featuring images like a screen shot from an old pong video game, a funkily-colored cassette tape, a five-piece drum set, and an infantryman blowing bubbles out of a bazooka, though everyone who chews gum knows you're more likely to get bubbles from Bazooka than laughs
Should you need something to tote all this fresh gear, he's also got military-style khaki canvas messenger bags tagged with assorted images, from an old timey penny farthing, to an eponymous bare tree, presumably wishing Happy Garden were around to expose its root.
