Review: Boogie by Nervy Apparel

Okay, you’ve seen the top picture, and even though its only a small part of the tee, I know what you Star Wars fans are like, so I’m going to link to link to the tee right now so that you can buy it as quickly as possible.

When I pulled this tee out of the box, I kind of got the feeling that I was holding something that might end up being a big deal, Star Wars inspired designs have a tendency to get quite a lot of attention, and when you mash up one seventies icon with another, dance/Night Fever in this case, then you’ve pretty much got a nostalgic match made in heaven. I described this tee to my friends at the pub one evening, and one of them immediately responded, “there should be a Death Star disco ball!”, and I think that was a great idea, but it would have been dangling in thin air on the design which I don’t think would have looked all that great.

The quality is impressive, the tee itself is American Apparel, and the print looks as if it will stand up to a fair amount of punishment. I don’t know the extent that Merchline are involved with the production of Nervy Apparel‘s tee’s, but these tees do maintain the high standards that I’ve come to imagine from Merchline powered brands. The colourway is fairly subdued, which you would expect since it is in sepia tones, but I think it works quite well, and maybe if it were a full-colour reproduction of the characters it would fall into the category of cheesy merchandise rather than loving homage.

    That’s pretty funny… the blue highlights are a nice touch.

    Uh .. it looks like there *is* a Death Star disco ball inside R2D2. Am I wrong? Awesome find!

    I was under the impression that it was just a regular disco ball, and that the Death Star that my friend was imagining would have been hanging above them like a regular disco ball.

    The disco ball coming out of R2’s head is just a regular one, which you can see in the closeup picture, but Andy didn’t link the thumbnails to the originals :P

    Dammit! I thought I’d checked over that too! It’s fixed now, and with some sexy lightbox-ing too!

    A-yup, just a regular disco ball in R2D2’s head. Dang. What a missed opportunity!
