UNBOX A MEMORY

Late in 2020, we experimented with apparel inspired by four years of the best socioeconomic commentary around. Based on demand for that trial run, we decided to get serious about things and launch a private label brand. It starts with two pieces animated by a moment in time as vividly rendered in a slice-of-life style vignette published here in 2019 and quoted below. The items are limited edition and custom manufactured in small batches. 

CHEERS CREWNECK

I never stayed long enough to get comfortable despite the couple’s well-meaning pretensions to hospitality. Instead, I usually perched on one of three bar stools situated around a weird-looking octagonal table within reach of the cocktail shaker set I bought them as a “gift.” Truth be told, I bought everybody cocktail shaker sets back then, along with Tanqueray and Rose’s, so I could be sure that wherever I went, I could shake up a gimlet.

SIGNAL CREWNECK

For most of the two years I knew the couple, their old Sony Trinitron sat on a particle board TV stand against the blank back wall of a dungeon-like living room on the bottom floor of a two-story townhouse. One day, the stand was gone, replaced by one of those cheap, plaster Corinthian column pedestals. “Looks good, right?,” Becca beamed. “Hobby Lobby. On sale.” I smiled. “Just like Tony.” She punched me jokingly in the shoulder. (In the HBO series, the TV in Tony Soprano’s bedroom sat on a similarly tacky decorative pedestal.)

Each piece is part of a limited run. Tags are numbered and signed by hand.
