Official DRIFT shirts from Japan?
Are these official?

They look more Primark than Tomato to me.

Yes, those are official. I think the darktrain.jp people pointed them out a couple months ago.

Re: Official DRIFT shirts from Japan?
Anyone want to have a go at designing a better shirt?

Re: Official DRIFT shirts from Japan?
i've got an idea or two that i should finally sit down and crack out. do we know what that impact-but-not font officially is? the closest i'm getting to is Eurostile Bold Condensed but since i don't have it i can't test it. there's also CG Triumvirate Inserat but again, can't test it and it seems less likely. (EDIT: Tried them out eventually and it's neither, but Inserat was actually kind of close)


wish i had the ep 3 artwork in proper resolution though

Re: Official DRIFT shirts from Japan?
I have three official UW shirts, and though I appreciate their/tomato design in general over their career, I don't really like the shirts.

In younger years, I'd make my own designs and print them on those iron on vinyl sheets. The best was a simple Underworld; text from AHDO era, and it has survived well with minimal peeling and no fading because I just cut out the white vinyl letters individually without printing.

Yeah, the Drift design is boring. I'd rather see some art from one of the singles covers or videos.

I’m planning to do it through society6. Their templates offer a great degree of versatility.
I’d like to nail the type(s) that they’re using though or it just going to look (more) bootleg.

Just ask Simon. DM him on Instagram, and he'll probably respond.

Ok, whoops, I apologise. I was remembering a previous link with one design. This link shows several shirt designs with art from the singles. As I'd hoped for above. A few are...ok. But nothing I'd feel compelled to buy.
