I feel a bit sickle

by Andy on September 26, 2006

Communism (especially the Soviet kind) seems to be a pretty popular draw for clothing designers, and whilst most of the designs and prints are pretty simple they do have a bit of charm, despite my constant reservations over politically aware clothing. On a side note, the novelty/retro Commie-clothing that I saw in Russia was far less attractive than any ‘Hammer & Sickle wear’ that I’ve seen coming out of the US, though we are going back a few years with my reference, so the Ruskies may be undergoing their own t-shirt revolution that I don’t know about.

Red Army Co is a company dedicated to putting iconic Soviet style images on well-priced items of clothing. It seems fitting that a company like this keeps their prices low, though I’m not sure what Lenin would think about them using Amazon to power their shop! They also seem to be very active within the skateboarding and music communities, if their news page is anything to go by.

Some of their designs are the pretty standard fayre, eagles, the colour red, yadda yadda yadda, but there are some more creative offerings as well, such as this Imperial Guard hoodie (also available as a tee or track jacket).

It’s a pretty cool design, with a largely hand-drawn style, and its refreshing to see a distinct lack of red in the design.
