The Striped Tee



Though it may seem something of a sacrilege to many around here, I have to admit that this Summer I have come around to the idea of the striped tee shirt. Double indemnity for liking it especially well when paired with high waisted pleated pants. More on this to come.

If the stripes are navy and white, you have my vote.

Hell yeah! And I dig that vintage Danelectro bass.

I used to know Billy Childish's (the singer on clip) brother. Also a v talented artist.

You should see the clothes style Childish has been rocking for the last 10 years, since his stripey T shirt days -- proto steam-punk/Edwardian polar explorer/First World War Tommy -- it's surprisingly excellent.

Totally at odds with his equally excellent 50s/60s music - but who cares. A special talent, and nice clobber too. (you can see this in the youtube clips linked to the one that's posted here).
