That which nourishes a thing can drastically affect its flavor, whether it's wine from a particular terroir, oysters from a particular seabed, or inappropriate oyster jokes from a particularly over-wined you. For gear that tastes of the 305, check out Dade County's own Down And Dirty Ethics.
Once the hobby of a clan of street artists and designers, D.A.D.E. now produces t-shirts that at once honor life in Miami, and take a sideways glance at the culture of a generation fortunate enough to wear t-shirts into adulthood. New 305-inspired stuff includes "Vice Chick", in which impressionistic slashes of color add up to a woman toting a smoking ray gun; and "Dinero Santo", rocking a cash-eyed saint posturing over wads of money and rosaries -- an homage to the Spanish saying "Money isn't a saint, but it can work miracles". Non-Miami-specific numbers include "Sneaker Monster", with a greedy octopus wrapping his legs around collectible kicks, and "Lady Killer": inspired by a nasty break-up, it features a B-movie kid chomping his buck-teeth into a bloody female leg, a grizzly reminder that you are very lucky to have a dental plan.
Future plans include venturing into polos, button-downs, and denim, and re-printing classics such as "She Devil" (bikini girl w/ vulture wings) and "Don't Front": a samurai w/ gold grill, suggesting that even if you're a creature of 17th Century Japan, you're still cutting your teeth on hip-hop.
