Tees from LA to Dallas

Some people have the ability to see anything as wondrous -- like that kid in American Beauty with that wind-blown trash bag, and even that wind-blowing Kevin Spacey. Instead, choose to see everything as menacing with tees from Future Heretics

Just arrived from downtown LA, Heretics makes high-quality cotton tees that seek "a place where edge and elegance crescendo harmoniously", a mission they accomplish with everything from guns to baked goods. Fresh drops start with skewed city references: the black, distressed-edge "Kyoto" with pistol & ammo below the city's name in Japanese; the "AK-LA" burnout in gray/gold foil or white/black, featuring the guerrilla-preferred machine gun inserted into the Dodgers' logo; and the "NYC" burnout in black/white/silver foil or white/black, sporting the Yankees' logo with a butterfly knife in place of the "Y", perhaps symbolizing the assault baseball fans feel every time Steinbrenner signs another free agent, or maybe just symbolizing stabbing. Then there's the dark-heather anti-drug riff "Don't Do Cake", with a woman about to devour an apparently evil slice off a Day of the Dead-style skull; the red & white "LOVE" burnout with lusty vampire lips in place of the "O"; and the aqua/silver foil, Metallica-font "Megaunicorn" burnout -- because what kind of idiot wants to ride lightning when there are unicorns

Because walking around bottomless is not harmonious, Heretics also makes straight-leg, slightly roomy premium jeans with light vintage washes and a slight sheen -- perfect, as the lesser Sheen's the guy you call when you just want to do blow.
