39. REASON Dipset/Ramones T-Shirt
Inspired By: The Ramones logo
Once—like the Misfits shirt—the Ramones shirt was an indicator of a likemind. Then Urban Outfitters ruined all that. Reason managed to bring a spot of funny subversion to make the design desirable again on cotton. Todd Bratrud's self-made Belle and Sebastian/Bad Brains logo was good but this was better — a purpled-out Dipset tribute to Joey and company's iconic logo (itself a parody of the presidential seal) that worked in the fact both crews used the bird. Reason's creation was bootlegged fast, but for a New York minute, a smirk of recognition from strangers during a wear was proof that someone else was weird like you.
