I’ve been doing some “research” for our upcoming spring/summer rock-themed line (yes, more on that later) and have been coming across some classic t-shirts that always seem to pop up in searches like this.
I think it’s safe to say these will forever be iconic images in the music world;
There are a ton more, but these are some of the greats. What do you think? What’s your fave? What did I miss?

And neither is Faith & Fortune.
Every holiday season I get a little sentimental, and very grateful for all that I have and for the friends I’m surrounded by. Building this company over the last couple of years has been an adventure. An adventure in patience, adversity, and reliance in others. During this journey we’ve been blessed to have friends who have contributed to our story and the growth of what we believe will be a great brand. We’ve also gained friends through regular business interaction. People we’re better off knowing now. People like Gabe Davis of 207MM, who has worked tirelessly on advancing our web presence and giving us a site that we are very proud of. People like lead designer and “creative directer” Grant Hanna, who’s incredible talent and artistic vision continues to inspire and excite us every day as we anticipate his next creation.
Of equal and perhaps even greater contribution though, has been you. Those of you who follow our story and participate through purchasing our product or joining us in events could be considered our most influential partner.
We are inspired each and every day by you and your feedback. Your enjoyment of our product, your active response to our requests to impact our world, all of this excites and motivates us each morning as we work to earn your trust and give you something fun to be part of. Thank you!
Moving into 2011, we are so excited to bring you along and show what we’re working on. Designs, events, social initiatives…we’ve got a lot brewing for you!
Thanks again for all you’ve done to support us, and we hope your Christmas season is one of joy and hope (and a little Faith & Fortune ).

Yes, I’ve heard they are comfortable. I’ve heard they are warm. I’ve heard you love them. Please, take it easy already.
The women of our culture are falling victim to an epidemic (as depicted in the below video). Girls in malls everywhere seem to be under the assumption that Ugg boots can be paired with any, and I mean any outfit. It’s the go-to “I’m having a lazy un-showered stroll through the mall in my plaid PJ’s Saturday” outfit. You know the look. Baggy sweatpants, “pink” emblazoned across their rear, one pant leg half tucked into the boot and the other half rolled up (I’m pretty sure this used to be the inner-city, unspoken gang symbol for “I’m selling”).
What I’m getting at here, is it looks so sloppy and ridiculous. Watch the below PSA:
Uggs do have their place (i.e. really cold weather), but by and large there’s a good chance you’ve been abusing your sheep-lined footwear. Do us all a favor, and think twice.
