T-Shirts Lost In Translation

T-Shirts Lost In Translation

This is a series called English (Emphasis on “ISH”). It features t-shirts being sold in Tokyo’s Shibuya shopping district, all of which contain a nugget of truth, like “Money is like much not not,” “SORRY Probably, he is smart?” and “Anyone asks donkey is feel better.” None of which makes any damn sense. Okay, except the one that says Detroit Murder City. That… is probably the most accurate description possible. The pics were actually taken by my big brother’s childhood best friend’s friend, Alan. I hope he bought all of them. If he didn’t, well, Alan? You f***ed up. HARD. Send me a souvenir?

    Based on the font, it was probably intended to say “Michigan” which uses this block font for most apparel.
