Old School cloBBer Designs (Part 1)

“Made tough and comfy for nocturnal activitys. A size guage color or feel to compliment any occasion: Being a smart ass to a Dennys waitress at 4am. Impressing your friends by sticking your left ear to a mega watt thumping Cerwin Vega. A neuron firing sugar rush from ten too many rasperry blowpops. Getting frisked by some over zealous renta cop. Winding down watching endless cartoons. Made in Los Angeles CA and available virtually nowhere.” – cloBBer

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.
