Do words like “vintage” and “sportswear” ring your bell when you are looking to spice up your streetwear outfit? Are you an individual that thinks that taste is more important than price tags? Welcome to the second installment of Taiste t-shirts. It’s a tale that involves passion for soccer and obsession for detail of a sportswear designer with a vision: an original concept on a t-shirt can also be be an history lesson.
His name is Ty Taiste (read: taste) and his main work as a designer at ’47 took him to refine his graphic approach, taking his skills to the utmost level. We first approached this project called The Football Gods a couple of weeks ago, so I did not want to wait any longer with the follow up. My first post was about Argentina 86 The hand of God t-shirt t-shirt and now it is time for Brazil ’70 The Greatest Team Ever.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of a glorious moment of the past in soccer history, you can turn the tee shirt inside out and read about it on the hidden print. The goal that went down at the 86th minute of 1970 Brazil – Italy match seems like it’s universally recognized as an epic moment. We Italians lost to Brazilians but the sport wins all the time and even your style is going to step up a notch with this item.
Distressed and holed as an actual replica of a t-shirt that sat for decades at the bottom of a drawer, this item portraying the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio is ready to make an impression. You can play mix and match with this t-shirt, nothing is too off limits for this item. I suggest a wide fit and progressive items to wear it with a maximum impact.
This t-shirt belongs to the limited run of 50 pieces that Taiste produced of this design. Isn’t scarcity one of key factors in modern streetwear? Go give a look to Taiste website and secure yourself at least one of the four designs available in this capsule collection. You are one of a kind: don’t settle for what everybody else is wearing…
