Patrick Segui is a man of talent, not only does he curate the most fascinating blog, Riveted, but he is also an accomplished artist and the man behind Mr Freedom's box art packaging. What I really love about Patrick however is his enthusiasm for projects. After posting photos of a rare seebees t-shirt flea market find, Patrick was inundated with requests by followers to reproduce the graphics. Exploring vintage printing techniques took sometime but eventually Mr Segui figured out the exacting process for recreating an authenticism that would appeal to aficionados the world over. On top of this he used original period garments as a base for the print method resulting in a look that says 60 years of wear and tear. The Papa was fortunate enough to requistion one of Patricks shirts and if ever there was an outfit to play ball with whilst serving in the Pacific then this is it. It may not be Ebbets Field but it feels every bit as real.
