MILKBOY Spring/Summer Collection 2008

Do you guys remember Gilles?  He was wearing this cool t-shirt in a sketch a few months back, and I was finally able to buy the shirt!!! The label is MILKBOY, and though the clothes are for men, there are some clothes that are cut so that even a woman can wear them.  I don't ever talk about clothes on this blog and this is probably the last time unless one of my sketches features clothes that exist in the 3-D world but I really wanted to share this with you guys.



The shirt is see-through (like X-ray!!) so I have to wear something underneath.  It is really light fabric but the ink used to print the bones and heart is kind of thick.  It's an interesting combination.  The cut of the sleeves is also neat.  They don't sit at the actual shoulder.  A side of the shirt can be pulled up but I haven't figured out how to tie the ribbon yet so that it looks cool enough.  



Apparently MILKBOY used to worn by people like John Lennon and David Bowie back in the day.  Now the designs are kind of like cool club wear that is combined with hip-hop and punk influences, and the people who wear MILKBOY would probably like to go clubbing listen to things like Justice and other kinds of new dance and electronic music.  The T-shirt designs are always really tongue-in-cheek and very interesting.  Sometimes they take the same fabric or designs used for the MILK label that is targetted to young women and make different designs and styles cut for men.  Sometimes these clothes end being much cooler than whatever was released for MILK.
