Forever an influence on fashion, nostalgia for a certain era is prevalent in all elements of couture, from the high-brow clothing found on catwalks to the mass-produced tour tees sold at concert venues. It used to be that in order to purchase your favorite artist’s merchandise, you had to attend a show or visit a specific retailer who carried what you hoped to find. The internet has changed the game, and now online outlets like Ebay, Amazon, Etsy, and niche web boutiques are purveyors of all things wearable, including that oft-hunted but rarely seen vintage Rap T-Shirt. One man has made it his life’s ambition to not only amass a collection of rare tees featuring his favorite Hip-Hop artists, but to feature his sizeable cache in a new book.
