textbook:

i was interested in out of print clothing (OoP) from the get go. first-if you put the catcher in the rye on anything, i’ll buy it (you may remember holden caulfield inspired this blog). but after chatting with them a little bit i got a much better idea of the mission behind their efforts. their team works closely with publishers and artists to ensure the integrity of each piece, awesome. more importantly, OoP partners with books for africa to donate one book to a community in need for every shirt sold. 1 shirt, 1 book, 5 shirts, 5 books, you get the idea. i love to see partnerships like this because so many times we’re told, a portion of “sale x” will go to the fund for “xyz.” in the end, i trust that some portion of my money got there but i have no idea what’s done with it. knowing that by buying a catcher in the rye shirt could mean somebody across the ocean could read my favorite book is a pretty lasting feeling.

The literary nerd in me couldn’t resist a man in one of these shirts. Add some nice jeans, a pair of Converse, and Wayfairers, and I’d be head-over-heels.
