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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
