Ripped T-Shirts from the Underground

No matter how many times the gf complains we’re never throwing away another ripped band t-shirt. After all, as Lydia Lunch points out, t-shirts have always been an “iconic symbol of defiance.” Gain insight into what makes band t-shirts so cool from musicians, fashion designers and pop culture personalities in Ripped T-Shirts from the Underground. The book documents post-punk counterculture music and art through rare t-shirts created by and for bands like The Ramones, Sonic Youth, Talking Heads and many more. Each shirt featured comes from the personal archives of vintage fashion collector Cesar Padilla, proudly displaying the grit and sweat it’s had since he first picked it up off the street.
