Profound Aesthetic Summer 2010 Lookbook

Profound Aesthetic Summer 2010 Lookbook

T-shirt makers are a dime a dozen these days it seems. What makes Profound Aesthetic different is that they deliver each tee with a story, a concept. They use top quality tees and the designs are as edgy as they are thought provoking. The summer lookbook was shot in NYC, with some great photography by their team. After really getting an opportunity to check out all the tees, we have to say the Civilian tee is our go-to pickup. It comes in an olive military-style finish and pulls inspiration from those iconic “Army” tees. “Wear it with pride. You make an equal difference in this world.”
