Nobody has ever worn a shirt that reads, “I survived a summer in NYC”. However, Knickerbocker’s Subway Summer camp shirt, an ode to that same time and place, is sure to get plenty of wear.
Summer in NYC is a very special, yet gnawing thing. Pleasures spread far and wide, like the shirt’s collar, just waiting to be had, but they tend to be bookended between various endurance matches. Between the gristle, romantic moments in the city certainly do exist, and a few communally shared scenes have been memorialized on this 100% organic cotton shirt. Mother of pearl buttons skip along the front placket towards the flat-hem bottom, dodging Joshua Minnich’s illustrations of cabs heading to the beach with surfboards on the roof, sneakers hanging on power lines, leaking barrels of who knows what, busted fire hydrants, buildings Frank called out in his songs, lady liberty, and gobs more. Pretty perfect for those who wish to rep their city, and all the same, for those that had to move away from her.
