Chicago ♥’s designerdrugs

designerdrugs isn’t your typical t-shirt. it’s made in the USA and designed in Chicago. the images are the real deal — and can be real jarring — and Josh Scholl,  the darling designer, might just find his way into your heart (if not your wallet).

His latest tee, the Tammi Terrell:

We had to ask: why Tammi? Especially when he’s known for more provocative t’s, à la this one.

Here’s what he said: “It was kind of a sad story with her. She really didn’t start “making it” until she was 24 and did the duet “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” with Marvin Gaye. The two started dating and during a concert she actually collapsed into his arms on stage. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor and died six months later at the age of 25. She had an amazing voice and is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, so I thought that putting her on a t-shirt was a modest way of getting people to care about her (or care about her again).”

Kid’s got heart. Can’t wait for you to meet him at Dose numero tres.
