Upper Playground Turns 10!
To celebrate its 10th Anniversary,Upper Playground is re-releasing 10 of their all-time most popular graphic tees. These guys (and gals) were making cool shirts and working with great artists before "streetwear" was even a word. The artists included in this series are a “Who’s Who” of some of Upper Playground’s best, including David Choe, Denis Kennedy, Sam Flores, Jeremy Fish (shout out to the Silly Pink Bunnies!) and Dora Drimalas. Wearing one of these tees is like wearing a piece of UP history. The 10-Year “Best Of” collection is available at all Upper Playground retail stores and online at the Upper Playground web store. Here are a few of my favorites... (Also available in men's tees if you prefer.)
