In the wild, caterpillars become butterflies, tadpoles become frogs, and successful t-shirt companies grow to also make hoodies and hats. Breaking nature's laws, SF's own Revl
Started by a Stanford MBA and his designer friend, Revl's following up their tees-only debut with a new line of casual-wear best described as "prep school run amuck" -- like if the Dead Poets Society could tell a scat joke.
The main offering's skinny ties that feature traditional chevrons, artillery stripes, and crests seasoned with dashes of smartass: Cock N Candy alternates roosters with lollipops, while Drunk on Scope mimics the pale, pimply green of an Andover boy expelled for being overly vigilant against gingivitis.
Abetting the ties is a series of long- and short-sleeve button downs in blue oxford cloth and white cotton, with short modish collars designed to showcase your neckwear (though this might also produce a Merton Hanks effect)
Not forgetting their beginnings, Revl's also got a fresh batch of animal-themed tees, like Put 'Er There, Pal (featuring a bear trap) and You Got Something On You -- covered in brown moths, it shows what happens when caterpillars diverge from the butterfly track and develop a hankering for sweaters.
