I’m really tempted to back this new Kickstarter project from Stockholm-based ASKET that reimagines the men’s t-shirt. Instead of five standard sizes, their design offers short, regular and long varieties of each to fit better. They’re made of 100% Egyptian cotton in a factory that treats their workers right and ASKET is completely transparent about how much it costs them to make each one. As an added bonus, they offer a t-shirt repair kit because they don’t believe in fast fashion. Check ‘em out if you need some new threads that look almost as good as your significant other after two weeks paid vacation and a trip to the day spa.

After boating out to Angel Island last weekend on a camping trip, sailing is on my mind. Our buds at Orange & Park must totally be on the same wavelength because they just came out with this new sailing tee and print. This minimal design really hits the spot and it doesn’t hurt that they dropped a Christopher Cross lyric into the product description. After you throw down for this (discount code SAILING gets you 15% off), make sure you watch this video. Can we talk about that Earl Campbell Houston Oilers jersey and double guitar?
Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie & Lowell is out today. His seventh studio album, it’s a rather personal one with the title referencing his mother and stepfather. Even so, I’m powerfully drawn to it and have already cried twice (once in public) while listening to track six, Fourth of July. I don’t cry very often, so I figured it’s worth noting. I’m also enjoying digging into the lyrics and noting how some of the verses can be interpreted as either Sufjan or Carrie singing them.
Sometimes they’ve got rap, sometimes they’ve got soul. Sometimes they’re new tracks, sometimes they’re mad old. We’re just talking about our mixtapes, but that’s also a good lead into the first track. Kick back and click for some new Wombats, Tame Impala, Sufjan and more.
HEY! Not seeing the tape above? Head here.
