"There is only one acceptable way to own a Ramones t-shirt. This is to have attended a Ramones concert, sweated, bled, transcended and then purchased one at a merchandise table en route to the concert-hall exit." So begins one of the best fashion essays we've read in a while, by rock critic David Giffels in The New York Times Magazine. He tells of his 10-year-old son, who wants a Ramones t-shirt for his birthday. He explains the weirdness of Hot Topic, where Ramones t-shirts are so easy to find, they might as well be ketchup at McDonald's. And then... well, we won't spoil it. Go read the essay, and then come back and tell us: Where exactly do you wear a band t-shirt, when you're not 10 and you're not a suburban Dad in Ohio? Because we have a Greatful Dead baby tee from our mom, and it only comes out when The MisShapes do...
