i didn’t follow the tour de france. i don’t know much about cycling and i don’t own a bike. (actually that not true, i’ll clarify in another post.) however i do love the fixed gear bikes I see in the city. one thing that is for sure is that i am a sucker for type. i love the type on these shirts. i was shopping, a profession for many here in nyc, and something i don’t do as much of as i once did. i found these shirts at just loved these shirts, i couldn’t resist. they had all the right ingredients. color. type. variety. uniquness. when i see typography like this, i categorizes it as found type. my find. i guess these shirts are from late 60s or early 70s. i wonder how much ‘design’ time was spent on these. certainly brands like rugby and abercrombie spend a great deal of time mining this genera. i have one more that is the creme de la creme but I gave to a friend to photograph years ago and he can’t find it. when he does I’ll be sure to add it for your pleasure and mine.
