British brand Real Tears make their return today with a slightly refreshed image, kicking things off with one black longsleeve T-shirt.
The longsleeve seems to be having a bit of a revival these days. Spending my early teens listening to East Coast hardcore and immersed in the scene around it, longsleeved shirts with band names printed down the length of both sleeves were a pretty common sight, but rarely seen outside of that. Real Tears take obvious inspiration from their own background in skateboarding and hardcore with the ‘Fuck Your Crew’ tee, featuring text printed on the chest, arms, and large across the back.
The brand themselves got off to a bit of a shaky start with their debut release, but although there’s not much to go on yet, they seem to be back on track with their latest, and are definitely a brand I’ll be keeping one eye on. The FYC Longsleeve is available from Real Tears now.
