8&9 | '68 Olympic Brain - Men's T-Shirt
EIGHT .38's, NINE 9mm's
ABOUT EIGHT & NINE DESIGNS: 8&9 is a young and independent clothing company. We're real people, with real principles. Street kids that work for ourselves, doing what we like, not what advertisers try to shovel us. Our inspiration comes from our lifestyle, music, sneakers, art, pop & sub cultures to create relevant products you can appreciate on multiple levels.
WHAT DOES 8&9 STAND FOR? There are layers to the concept. Simply, numbers are the world's most universal language. Something constant, everyone can relate to. There is strength in numbers. 8&9 is indicative of that numerical strength and represents a unification of the masses under one banner. The numbers 8&9 stand together; individually they are symbolic of perfect rhythm, pure intelligence, fortitude, wisdom, solidarity, and general perfection. The numbers also represent transformation, balance, harmony, the completion of all possibilities and the whole of empowerment. Basically, 8&9 is something greater than what you see on the surface with limitless potential.
This latest tee was inspired by the events of 1968 on that iconic day at Olympic Stadium in Mexico City when Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their fists in protest. Adopting this rendition to include their "brain" logo, 8&9 represents for the thinkers and dreamers. This shirt is the perfect match for the Air Jordan Olympic 6.
