Black Scale Spring/Summer 2012 Tees

A few shirts from Black Scale’s current SS12 range have made their way to the UK, and to the shelves of Leeds boutique Open Lifestyle.

Black Scale ranges are always 50/50 for me, and I wouldn’t touch most of the T-shirt graphics, but the three designs here are an example of some of the better tees on offer, albeit mostly simple text-based designs. Their own brand of dark, ‘occult’-styled clothing has gained a significant following of late, thanks in part to ASAP Rocky, who is rarely seen without a peace of BS on his back, but it’s still fairly hard to come by in the UK.

I hope that we get to see a little more of the line in the coming months, as some of the shorts, shirts, and jackets this season are well worth a look. The six tees below are available from Open Lifestyle now. You can view more of the current range at Black Scale.

    How many “Occult” brands do we need after Actual Pain? Peeps need an originality check.

    ‘This are far from nice’ ????
    Actual Pain and Black Scale are connected. Actual Pain is even sold in the Black Scale store and Black Scale didn’t come after Actual Pain, they were established around the same time. It’s obvious you’ve made an opinion based on a small display of t-shirts you’ve just seen here. If anything Black Scale have moved away from an “occult” look this season more than ever although it has a lot to do with who they are and where they get genuine intrest and inspiration from. When did you see the colour yellow displayed throughout an Actual Pain collection?! Or when did you see Actual Pain produce cut and sew shirts/jackets, footwear or raw denim in a collection? There are only similarities aesthetically and if you’re only scratching the surface.
