Tee party: three shirts for spring 

In anticipation of bare arm season, a tease of three Halifax-made tees.

APM's This Is My Rifle tee - DUANE JONES
  • APM's This Is My Rifle tee
  • Duane Jones

You might know Bermuda-born, Halifax-based Duane Jones’s line as Be Glitterati, but this spring he’s making some changes. Rebranding as Art Pays Me in May, Jones is transitioning from streetwear to lifestyle brand, staying true to his aim of representing outside-the-box thinkers. His This Is My Rifle tee takes inspiration from Wu-Tang’s “Under Siege” and his own weapon of choice—the pencil—to deliver a message about the power of self expression.

Citadel Clothing's OG (Original Gentleman) tee - CITADEL CLOTHING COMPANY
  • Citadel Clothing's OG (Original Gentleman) tee
  • Citadel Clothing Company

Citadel Clothing Company
Trio of pals Josh McKenna, King Tabrizi and Jefferson Guest celebrate uniqueness and nurture confidence with their handmade, small-batch collection of tees, jackets, sweaters and hats. From Citadel’s Spring 16 collection comes the OG (Original Gentleman) Patch Shirt. With a pursue-your-dreams message in mind, the shirt gives a shoutout to British naval officer by the name of General Fawcett, a wannabe musician who didn’t quite fit in with his family’s military tradition.

The Girl From Away's Lobster Rolls tee
  • The Girl From Away's Lobster Rolls tee

The Girl From Away
Always inspired by the place she's living, Nadyne Kasta is The Girl From Away. Landing in Nova Scotia via PEI and Montreal, she's made many an east coast-inspired statement with her line of pencils, stationery, totes and tops. But her Sex, Drugs and Lobster Rolls shirt—which, like all good things began in a Facebook thread—is one to rule them all. Summer 2016 goals?
