Shirt: Descendents - Australia Tour 2013
Color: Royal Blue
Brand: Gilden Ultra Cotton
Source: Chris was kind enough to have one of these shirts brought back from Australia for me. i really dig the blue color. some people hate colored shirts but i get sick of wearing black and white all the time. also i think it takes a different level of designer to match a good color shirt with your art. its easy and brainless to throw you design on black or white. to match it to a color pallet is another story.
This design has baffled me. not sure what the origin is. australians in armor? perhaps some war i am not educated on? is this some sort of Iron Maiden? the back i get. :) especially since it was the same back as the Japan Tour shirt. altho there was a clear font change, for what reason i don’t know. at this point I’m sure you are asking yourself why do i care about fonts? you are stupid and obsessive. well let me tell you, that sentence for the one guy 10 years form now who is trying to document or track down every descendets shirt design for whatever reason. perhaps he thinks he got a bootleg and wants to make sure. there is no website that documents this kind of nerdery to reference…oh wait there is THIS ONE! you are welcome future shirt hunter :)
UPDATE FROM CHRIS SHARY:
“Milo is dressed as urban folklore character Ned Kelly. Ned is a lot like an Australian version of Robin Hood. The helmet he’s wearing he made from old plows to protect him from a standoff with the police. They shot and eventually killed him. He’s a rad character. Riff, my Australian friend suggested we use a Ned reference, and it went over VERY well with the locals. Milo even came out at one show dressed as Ned!”
As i wrote this i thought Nerdery what a great name i should buy that URL and coin it. is every good idea taken nowadays? sheesh. these nerds beat me to it. http://nerdery.com
