Admiral Sporting Goods x Frontiers Man
For our latest collaboration we've teamed up with Frontiers Man Edinburgh to produce a graphic t-shirt collection that celebrates a golden era of rock music, fashion and the Forth Bridge, a landmark of the city of Edinburgh.
Edinburgh is a city drenched in culture. Known for its history and heritage, the area attracts more than 5 million tourists a year.
While Edinburgh has a strong sense of self, it's also an outward-looking, progressive city with an appreciation for what the rest of the world has to offer. It's within these characteristics that Frontiers Man exists. Founded more than 30 years ago by knitwear designer Jane Forbes, womenswear was its bread and butter for many years, before the step was taken six years ago to begin selling menswear.
The spirit of collaboration has never been more important as we emerge from a tough few years. Pulling together when times are tough is a natural reaction, and qualities like resourcefulness and open-mindedness usually result in something fresh and exciting.
The Admiral Sporting Goods x Frontiers Man range comprises of printed t-shirts adorned with the world's first major steel structure - the Forth Bridge. This local landmark is combined with the artwork found on some of the most iconic album covers.
Elvis Presley's self-titled debut album featured the King himself, in black and white, with striking letters marking out his name to the left and bottom edge. The Clash released their own homage to this style years later for their third studio album, London Calling. Both releases have their own unique place in music's cultural history so combining this iconic image with something more local such as the Forth Bridge was a way to portray two things Frontiers Man holds dear.
As always we have taken time to perfect the garment quality with the print being applied by four colour heat transfer. The tee comes in Hawk Navy, Gyr White and Kite Black and is available in limited quantities on the ASGco. website and over at Frontiers Man, both online and from their store at 18 Stafford St, Edinburgh EH3 7BD
