The internet's made it far easier to collaborate with people in other places, though as a surely impending film starring Anne Hathaway and Josh Duhamel will show, distance does make it harder to be collaborators with benefits. Nations apart but still co-designing tees, the pals behind Quality Peoples.
Just into Bows+Arrows, this line's inspired by the nomadic wave-craving philosophies of its two globe-scattered owners, who quit their jobs to respectively move to places famed for their kidnappings (Mexico) and general fondness for the letter "K" (Hawaii). In-ATX designs run from USA Flag, with stars replaced by waves and the words "United States of Aloha", to... Waves, bearing the quote "And the waves will wash it all away", except, unfortunately, for the THC bonded to the hair of people who say things like that. From the site, you can grab "Rockaway Beach", with a flipped Stones quote over the face of the owner of NY's Rockaway Tacos; an oversized washed-out print of the ocean from the perspective of a body surfer; or a hazy distressed-looking take on classic French Breton stripes, as opposed to American Stripes, which Comedy Central wears three days a week without laundering.
Although the shirts are fairly pricey, each purchase funds after-school programs for Mexican children -- maybe if Duhamel threw your hot mess of a romantic life a little charity, raunchy hilarity might ensue, until you realize you actually liked him as more than a friend...and then you're no better than Mila Kunis.
