Judging by their new seventh season—the first to be stocked at Double Double—energies at the Real Bad Man camp are at an all-time high. The label rounded out 2020 with a much-anticipated collaborative album with Detroit street rap innovator and Griselda Records signee Boldy James. In 2021, Adam Jay Weissman’s label shows no signs of slowing. In recent collections, the label has moved away from its thematic collections which, according to Weissman, became too constricting. Weissman has stated in interview that he founded RBM in search of creative control: “if I wanted to make tie-dye shirts with graphics all over them, it wouldn’t have to go through a panel discussion.” This new collection puts the label’s psychedelic-bent aesthetic on full display across a range of tees and accessories. With designs that express an expansive appetite for visuality and a gift for juxtaposition, RBM is living up to its founder’s vision.
Real Bad Man always find innovative ways of referencing the music world in their designs. The Real Bad Man Tribute to Warbles tee celebrates what RBM consider to be ‘the greatest music blog in the history of music blogs,’ run by mysterious curator ‘Owl Qaeda.’ Running from 2010 to 2012, Holy Warbles disappeared after Megaupload shut down, never to reappear.
This long-sleeve tee features a large back graphic with a wavy gradient effect, graphic print patches on the sleeves, and a branded graphic on the chest. Here in the white colourway, this long-sleeve t-shirt also features ribbed cuffs and crew neckline.
Note: It is recommended that you go up a size unless you prefer a snug fit.
