In 2001, Experimental Jetset designed ‘John & Paul & Ringo & George’, a t-shirt for Japanese label 2K/Gingham. It has since be parodied countless times. Needless to say, I’ve always found the quintessential Experimental Jetset design to be quite intriguing. Maybe it’s because of its simplicity. Maybe because the possibilities with this particular design really is endless. Maybe because I love Helvetica. I’m not too sure.

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear FFB Raglan by Fur Face Boy and review Random Objects by Random Objects, a New York based brand that draws inspiration from quotes and proverbs. PS: This episode was supposed to be uploaded a while back, so some of the things that I talk about might seem … a bit dated
“Quotes and proverbs inspire all of our designs here at RANDOM OBJECTS. They are the common theme that run throughout all of our t-shirts and products. We take these various quotes and proverbs and interpret them visually. Sometimes the quote [proverb or saying] itself is the graphic; while at other times, they inspire us to design a graphic based around itsâ€™ meaning.”
Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Origami Pigeon by Random Objects.Pros: I love the fact the brand is called Random Objects and that every shirt comes packaged with a … random object! My random objects was a pair of black pencils packaged in chop stick sleeves. So cool! The shirt itself featured the standard American Apparel white blank, which was comfy as always. The T-Shirt comes packaged in a clear plastic bag, which is a nice touch especially when the shirt is being shipped cross country. The T-Shirt is tagless and features a very large screen printed neck label instead. The T-Shirt graphic is awesome (i’ve always loved this design) and the print itself is quite soft. Cons: The only thing that I didn’t care for was the small Random Objects print right below the graphic on the front of the shirt. I the design could have gone without that. Price: $20 but use coupon code RANDOMOBJ at checkout for an extra 10% off your entire order.
“Pigeons are probably the most courageous birds in the world! They will walk through crowded city streets without fear, and will trot in front of oncoming traffic without hesitation. Theyâ€™re everywhereâ€¦ even on your shirt!”
That’s me in front of Katz’s in New York City, home of the greatest Pastrami sandwich and Meg Ryan’s infamous and very loud orgasm (Confused? Watch When Harry Met Sally).
Great cupcakes are to be had at Butter Lane! As suggested by long time Co-Tee TV viewer, Carlos J. EasyBake of Oven Fresh Dreams.
FFB Raglan by Fur Face Boy.Pros: Another excellent product from our friends at Fur Face Boy, this time, a Raglan tee. I’m a big fan of baseball style cut T-Shirts and so the FFB Raglan was a pleasant surprise in a box that was filled with FFB T-Shirts. My favorite part about this shirt is that it features the number 81, which coincidently, was the year that I was born. There are only a few left so be sure to grab them while you still can. Price: $34.
Check me reppin’ the Fur Face Boy on the Brooklyn Bridge!
PS: I did get to try out both Grimaldi’s and Lombardi’s Pizza. Grimaldi’s FTW!
In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear an American ApparelÂ Poly-CottonÂ 3/4 Sleeve Raglan ShirtÂ and review Never Too Old from Amon Clothing,Â a brand based out of Germany that focusing on producing designer tees with an emphasis on using organic materials and sustainable energy to produce their shirts.

Never Too Old by Amon Clothing.Pros: Never Too Old came in some of the most creative and inventive packaging that I’ve ever reviewed on the show. When other companies stick to rectangular boxes, Amon used the unorthodox triangle. They pay very close attention to detail when it comes to packaging but even more so when it comes to the tees themselves. The design is printed on an Earth Positive branded shirt which was manufactured solely using renewable green energy from wind and solar power. The screenprint is nice and soft. The shirt also is tagless in the neck area for itch free comfort and features a screenprinted label instead. Shirt is also screenprinted with the Amon brand on the lower left hem on the back of the shirt. I reviewed a medium tee, which felt like some of te larges I’ve worn before so you might want to order a size down.Â Cons: Design might be a bit too abstract for some – but if you dig art, you’ll probably appreciate this tee that much more. Tag on the left hem is a bit bulky. Might be a little too pricey for some.Â Price: 28 EURO.
