One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, "When are you restocking your shop tees?" That will happen soon, and in two new color options in addition to our original black. But that got us thinking about how to make a shop tee that is even more distinctive and inspired than our standard logo tees. That is how we came up with the LN'H x GN'R Hand Destructed Shop Tee collection.
Borrowing three iconic album cover designs from one of our favorite bands, Guns N' Roses, we used direct-to-garment printing, a method that utilizes an inkjet-type printer to apply special inks which are then absorbed and embedded into the fibers of the shirt, creating a smoother image that is actually IN rather than merely ON the garment.
Each premium tri-blend tee shirt has been hand destructed around the collar, sleeve and hem, as well as having the graphic hand-sanded to create three distinct, and distinctly fun, vintage looking designs. Turning to a beloved band from our childhood who happen to be embarking on the biggest reunion tour of the summer for inspiration was a no brainer, just like switching out the "&" in our name for their more rockin' "N". Check out the entire collection below, dropping in-store and on our website this Friday, June 3rd.
LN'H x GN'R "Appetite" Tee $45
First up in the collection is our hand destructed, heather grey "Appetite For Destruction" tee, which boasts a hand-sanded graphic that has been tweaked to feature some of the skulls wearing our Destructed Denim Mitchell N' Ness hat collaborations.
LN'H x GN'R "LIES" Tee $45
For "LN'H LIES" we used a hand destructed oatmeal tee, with the hand-sanded album cover graphic altered to reflect some highlights from our first year... as well as a few inside jokes.
LN'H x GN'R "Illusion" Tee $50
Finally there is our "Use Your Illusion II" tee, which has received the most radical distressing of the three designs. Like the previous two shirts, it is hand destructed with a hand sanded graphic. But this black shirt has also been custom bleached with several different mixtures, giving each shirt its own unique flame-like bleach pattern. The shirts were then washed thoroughly to eliminate any excess traces of bleach.
