Insted blue shirt

I love this shirt for reasons other than it looks cool. I met a good friend because of this exact shirt. Back in the late 90s when I started university I was in the student center killing time between classes and I saw a dude I didnt know from local gigs with a curly mop under a knit hat wearing this most crucial Insted shirt. Being the grimey HC dude I am I had to inquire about the shirt and possibly try to get it off him. Ha. I never got the shirt but we became good friends and through him I met a ton of great dudes like Steve STB and Sprite. So on the few rare occasions I see a bright blue version of this shirt I instantly think of my friend. Speaking of that dude, I should probably hit him up and see if he still has that shirt, ha. Still grimey. One more from

    One of my all time favorites…mine has a small pocketprint though. Love how the Chet character is inverted because of the use of white ink on a blue shirt. All reprints had the drawing the “right” way.
