Every Shirt IX: Watain

shirt: Watain 2008 US tour
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2008
provenance: band

This shirt was acquired last autumn at the band's gig downstairs at the Middle East. The front design, though (as opposed to the back, which has the tour stops and a cool decayed version of the Statue of Liberty's head), is the somewhat older/classic "To The Death" design, which I got on a patch at their more epic concert at the Middle East upstairs the year before. The design, like a lot of designs based on photos, translates a lot better here than onto the patch, but looking at the patch in situ on my jacket, the thing is just fucking monstrous. That's a killer black metal design executed with top-end materials, and it's entirely debatable whether the better total effect is at shirt size or on the patch.
