Inspired by a lyric from the song ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’ by The Pixies, this piece is commemorative of the crazy fucking year it’s been.
During our sixth —and arguably most challenging— year in business, we’ve faced equipment failure, dealt with multiple cases of vandalism, and one case of actual burglary. But we have soldiered on, and fought our way to our 6th birthday on 13th December.
Featuring our very first back print, this digitally etched, tarot-card-style piece by illustrator @ev1l_death depicts the precarious dance of Man with the ever-presistent Devil, teetering dangerously at the top of a cliff.
It’s an image that’s open to interpretation, but for me it sums up the absurdity of this life we’ve chosen as small independent retailers, in a time of political and economic uncertainty; truly a life on the edge!
Oh and we’ve kept it nice and simple for you on the flipside, with just THE QUARTER MASTERS classic logo in its new tiny form —only about 55mm wide— on the front left chest.
The shirt itself is QM Eco, our climate neutral tee —made from luxuriously soft, combed, organic cotton— which was manufactured solely using renewable green energy from wind and solar power.
Contemporary unisex fit, as standard. I’m wearing a large in these pics, for that extra comfy, slightly more forgiving look (it is Winter, so I’ve been skipping the gym a lot and probably drinking too much wine).
If Man is five, then The Devil is six
