FIT TO A ‘T’: Pool Tradeshow is T-shirt heaven. There are kitschy, classic, colorful, cute and downright crass Ts from brands the likes of Solid Threads, Ames Bros., Choke Shirt Co., Hips and Hair, Neoclassics, Curbside and American Apparel, which spotlighted Ts of the cropped variety for spring. Of all of the T-shirt purveyors at Pool, Curbside had one of the most crowded booths, but creative director and owner Adam Hogan set aside a few minutes to talk to WWD about his brand and passion for the iconic style staple.
WWD: Tell me about Curbside. Adam Hogan: We are based out of Omaha. I started the company myself about five years ago. Eventually, we opened a little retail boutique and started our own print shop collaborating with eight other artists around Omaha. All of the artists including myself do fine art and street art. One is a tattoo artist, and we do everything from comic book art to sculpture, anything you can think of. Curbside is a way of taking all that art and bringing it together to put it on clothing for the public.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
