I would rock this thing in a second. Love the red one especially. This is a great example of a versatile transition piece that can keep you warm all by itself in autumn and work well in layers once winter hits.
Sometimes the best post is simply to let the product speak for itself.
Honestly, it’s been a while since we saw any graphic tees that we’ve really liked and, while these aren’t particularly groundbreaking, we can definitely say that any of them would be a kick-ass addition to anyone’s wardrobe. P.S., if you don’t know who’s face is on the shirt you don’t deserve to wear one.

The Interwebz has been suh-low lately. At least that’s what we’re telling ourselves. How else could you explain our shameful lack of blogging lately? Certainly this lull isn’t due to writer’s block or an extended vacay gone awry. Anycrap, the shirt pictured here was enough to make us snap out of our doldrums and get back to blogging. And I gotta tell you, it feels great.
Cop the shirt at Context.
On first glance, Michael Jordan and A Tribe Called Quest don’t have much in common. Jordan was a domineering, flashy, business-driven force of nature while Tribe always seemed content to play the background and rely upon attraction instead of promotion to draw fans to their brand of playful, wide-eyed rhymes. While Jordan’s outsized personality couldn’t help but insert him front-row-center in the public’s consciousness as something completely new, Q-Tip, Phife and Ali worked with jazz samples and teenage wonder to foster a sense of familiarity and form an instant connection with fans. So, needless to say, putting Tribe imprints all over Jordan brand clothing is suspect at best (at least among those of us who grew up memorizing Tribe records). At the height of the kids-getting-shot-in-the-subway-for-sneakers scare, Phife said it best, “I wear New Balance sneakers to avoid an arrow’s path.”
BUT, since the early 90s and golden era of hip hop serve as the inspirational fountain for 99% of streetwear designers nowadays, I guess even a tangential relationship is all it takes to align two icons with such opposing philosophies. Anyway, I’ll get off my Internet soapbox and admit that these designs look lovingly made but, come on Nike — Jordan and Tribe? That’s like nuts and gum.

Choosing to debut their holiday looks in a rap video, the guys from The Hundreds wisely opted to avoid the cliches that often endanger rappers’ wardrobes (i.e. nasty champagne stains, bullet holes, skid marks from stripper glitter, you get the picture) and instead keep it simple.
Also, since we had trouble placing the sample (despite the fact that it’s obviously referenced in the title) from the video, enjoy the mp3 below.
