What I want to know is why the model looks like skrugs Bob Dylan? Anyway, TJAMC's album Psychocandy is a "cult classic" or something and has made a bunch of "Best British Rock Albums Of The Past 25 Years That You Don't Give A Shit About" lists and graces a baseball jacket in the aforementioned collection.

At the very least, this is some shit Joseph Gordon-Levitt listens to while he does "cool white guy stuff" like eat heirloom tomatoes and take black & white photos of buildings from low vantage points for his Instagram.

I'm cooler now.
By the way, the clothes are fucking awesome.
