In a year marred by colossal uncertainty, we’ve never needed people to say it straight more than now. In 2020, facts are key. It is in no way controversial to say that Los Angeles-based label Pleasures have never been ones for subtlety. For this reason, the title of Alex James and Vlad Elkin’s label’s most recent collection, “metaphorically speaking,” is kind of confusing. With pieces featuring slogans that initially strike with the force of political declaration, we’re left looking for more. In short, Pleasures are fucking with us. Some things really are still business as usual.
Though admittedly never ones for subtlety, given that the LA-based label made a name for itself screen-printing Kurt Cobain’s suicide note on a t-shirt, the Pleasures Fisted Embroidered Tee might actually be more subtle than most prints in the Pelasures archive. As its name suggests, this short-sleeve tee features, you guessed it, fists on it, screen-printed in a quadrant design on the front and back. This relaxed-fit tee also features the Pleasures logo embroidered on the chest and a ribbed crew neckline.
