“The Medium is the Message”

“The Medium is the Message” wrote a famous Canadian Marshall McLuhan. Some Product’s medium is the stuff we wear. The messages are sometimes meaningless but some tend to either reflect or mirror how we are feeling at a certain moment.

” I Don’t Give a ****” tees and tanks available now from Some Product.

Everyone Loves Raymond

As far as I remember art is pretty much the only thing I cared about since I was a little kid. Making art, looking at art, knowing about it, etc…I can’t think of a bigger influence in terms of humor, aesthetics and style then Ray Pettibon. His striking and often brutally funny images continue to inspire me to this day.

“There was basically all your standard or regular gig posters, and then there were the Ray Pettibon gig posters.”

Trash & Vaudeville (NYC)

Trash & Vaudeville is New York City’s best and most notorious headshop and they also happen to be our customers. If you are craving a Johnny Thunders tee and a pair of skin tight bondage pants then head down to St. Marks and Jimmy at T&V will hook you up. The guys running this place are awesome and we are stoked to have them as customers and friends.

The Xeroxed Goddess

Former teenage “bad girl” appears on this vintage t-shirt bought at a Saint Catherine’s sex shop in Montreal, sometime in the 90’s. Tracy Lord’s iconic image gets the full-on DIY, photocopied and cut-up treatment, in a glorious high contrast black and white print. No gloss here, just cheap, easy n’ sleazy.

Get Rich or Die Cruisin’ dude!!

So stoked I found this photo!!!

I remember owning this Die Kreuzen record back in junior high and being particularly drawn to this image. As a kid on a steady diet of metal and punk music and graphics, this cover had everything I liked. The band never played the cultural hotbed of Edmonton, so I decided to make the tee in Grade 7 art class  (unfortunately, the actual tee did not survive..boohoo).

This was done with a paint brush, using regular fabric paints and I am quite sure, is the first tee I ever made. I remember making a few more one-off, DIY tees (Celtic Frost, Slayer and The Cramps) over the next few years, but …no photos have surfaced ….yet.
