Old School Freshjive Designs (Part 1)

T-shirts, among other things, have been something I’ve obsessively collected over the years. The designs of late ’80s and early ’90s streetwear brands, like Fresh Jive/Raw Vibes, CloBBer, Anarchic Adjustment, Q-Ambient, Gypsies & Thieves, etc… were, and remain, my favorite.

The below graphics are from Rick Klotz’s Freshjive / Raw Vibes label. The first one is the original Tide parody shirt from 1989. The second one, Fresh Jive Beats, was one of my favorites and came in a variety of colorways. There’s something about these shirts that make me smile to this day. Perhaps it’s the nostalgia factor, the memories of where I wore them and the events of those times; regardless of what it is, I doubt I’m alone and thought I’d take some time to pay homage to these old school rave/skate t-shirts that were part of my youth.
