In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear Make It So by Might Tees and review Urban Surveillance/Voyeurism 1984 by Tiny Celestial, a brand started by Duane Brown as an an outlet for his creative ideas and has fueled his interest in art, design and culture.
By the way, this is a little weird but I am playing catch up. You see, I recored a bunch of episodes earlier this year but never posted them. As such, some of the things that I talk about will seem grossly out of date. My apologies. Casualties like this happen when you’re stressing out over finishing a PhD. Needless to say, I will be posting these episodes over the next few days!
Urban Surveillance/Voyeurism 1984 by Tiny Celestial (designed by Lewis JC). Pros: Love the brand name, it screams fun! Nice postcard including in the package featuring the Tiny Celestial story. The white American Apparel T-Shirt fit well as always. I really dug the idea of the T-Shirt – I’m a big George Orwell / 1984 fan so this shirt was perfect me. I loved the typography of the T-Shirt and the fact that they took elements from the book and incorporated into the design. The tiny text makes you want to run up to the person wearing the tee to take a closer look. I’m not the biggest fan of teal, but I think that it works quite well on white. The shirt came packaged in a very unique and small box.
Suggestions: A lot of tape on the box made it a bit difficult to open. Shirt was very wrinkled – this might be solved by better folding or a bigger box. I’ve always said that initially opening up the package and your first thoughts of the product will fuel your love for the T-Shirt. I loved the design, but disliked that it was so wrinkled. Luckily, this problem can easily be fixed with a hot iron.
Price: Bummer, no Longer Available For Sale.
[NOTE: I usually have a gallery of photos right around here in the review post, but for some reason, I can’t seem to locate the photos that I took for Episodes 83 and 84. Instead of prolonging the wait to get these episodes out, I have decided to go ahead and publish the post minus the gallery. So don’t worry, the galleries aren’t gone for good, they’ll just be missing in Episodes 83 and 84].
