Co-Tee TV Episode 63: Ban T-Shirts, Regan Smith Clarke and Bodega

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear Creativity Not Conflict by Ban T-Shirts and review Bodega which was designed by Regan Smith Clarke for his own brand of the same name. The essence of the Regan Smith Clarke brand is simply in the message. Step back, appreciate the meaning and become more aware of your environment. Clarke’s love for all things vintage is his main source of inspiration.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Bodega by Regan Smith Clarke. Pros: T-Shirts came packed in three separate packages – your T-Shirt will definitely be safe during shipment! Included with the T-Shirt were a few Regan Smith Clarke branded stickers and pins. The T-Shirt was tagless and featured a screenprinted label on the inside neck area. A custom hang tag adds an extra professional touch to the T-Shirt. Each hang tag is custom made based on the T-Shirt, and includes a description of the tee. Bodega was printed on a Navy colored American Apparel blank, so you know that you’ll get a super comfy T-Shirt. The design is large but not excessively large and the print itself is quite soft. I really think Regan Smith Clarke is doing all of the right things with his debut release. I was absolutely impressed with Bodega, from the quality of the T-Shirt, well thought out hang tag and neck label, to the cohesiveness of the design. Cons: My only criticism for the brand (the T-Shirt itself was flawless) would be that I think Russian Doll (if you watch the video I show it off during the unwrapping) does not entirely fit in as well with the other T-Shirts in the current line. Price: $20.

Creativity Not Conflict by Ban T-Shirts. Pros: Printed on a brown Royal Apparel T-Shirt, which is very soft and comfortable. I love the idea and meaning behind this T-Shirt. Cons: If you’re the kind of person that loves to shoot at things with big manly guns then this might not be the shirt for you. Price: $19.50.
