Don't Fight The Feeling T-shirt - Mens
Capturing the spirit of Len Lye in a moment of vintage 1970s style, this replica T-shirt strikes close to the heart of the artist’s philosophy.
Dedicated to making art that celebrates motion, Lye was a champion of living in the moment, constantly moving forward and sideways, and certainly not fighting the feeling.
This replica t-shirt is inspired by an original shirt worn by Lye, photographed during a moment in his studio in 1974. The inspiration for Lye's Don't Fight The Feeling t-shirt, was a now-iconic ‘New York City’ t-shirt made famous by John Lennon via a 1974 photo shoot with Bob Gruen. While likely an inexpensive of-the-shelf shirt, it achieved fame as a design piece referencing an energy and an era.
100% combed cotton.
Preshrunk to minimise shrinkage.
Womens and mens sizing available.
This tee is a relaxed fit and is longer in the body and the sleeve than the women’s Maple tee.
