Okay, yes, we admit we’re suckers for vintage ’70s record and band logo designs on t-shirts – especially when they’re well chosen and the quality appears up to snuff. Enter Japan’s Soul Factory which offers up some lovely gear bearing the logos of James Brown’s Brownstone imprint (which released many great Bobby Byrd singles), Kool & the Gang’s longtime recording home De-Lite Records (attn: J-Zone!), and the Average White Band’s famously curvy “AWB” design (the letter detailing on which is particularly impressive – see above pix). There’s also a pretty great Brownstone varsity jacket for those who favor that funky matriculation look.
