As part of the Hood Project, the design was meant to represent the neighbourhood through typography and clothing.
Professionally silkscreen printed on high quality combed cotton, giving a premium soft touch and ideal to be worn anytime, any place.
The Designer's Rationale
From my experience from having to go to school and spend my teenage years at Teck Whye, I have to say that Teck Whye gave an old, run down feel to it yet filled with youngsters. Best known for its gang activity, Teck Whye reminded me of Compton, California. This was where I got my inspiration of using Old English fonts, like the famous "Compton" designs popularized by Eazy E.
Do note that this design does not have any connections to any gang but is a representation of the neighbourhood.
