New York based hotelier Andre Balazs’ THE STANDARD, and downtown Manhattan impresario, Tony Arcabascio, have teamed up to bring you, The Tourist Tees. The three tee set features graphics commisioned by a judiciously assembled group of top designers/artists and represent the 3 major cities the hotels inhabit: Los Angeles, Miami, and it’s newest conquest, New York City.
Because lettering directly reflects a certain person or region, it was important to select the perfect individual for each location, hence, hand-picking Eric Haze for NYC, Jose Parla for Miami, and west coast’s Natas Kaupas for Los Angeles. Each of these artists were comissioned to write the city’s name in their own personal handstyles, making each a unique and recognizable representation for that area. The days of receiving the typical, “my … went to … and all i got was this lousy t-shirt” tee from your friends and family when they travel are over.
Produced in New York, The Tourist Tee set consists of three different graphics offered in two different colorways. Each is packaged in its own reusable, nylon, monogrammed travel case, basically making it the perfect pre-wrapped, 2-for-1 gift for your loved ones.
