MY WARdrobe: Black Flag Tribute Shirt, Everything Went Black/Black Edition (Unboxing).
The light catches the ink for a sparkly look here, but it is not that sparkly. (Buy your own here)
There was a brief moment in time when the careers and labels of Black Flag and Dinosaur jr. overlapped. Lou Barlow (pictured above) was there, manning the bass in the (then young upstarts) Dinosaur jr.
After parting ways, Lou went on to successful careers with Sebadoh, Sentridoh, Folk Implosion, and as a solo artist, before reuniting with the original Dinosaur lineup.
Did we, as young Fabulists, think we’d ever see Lou wearing a shirt we made, as he played with Sebadoh at a bar in Scotland? Hell naw. Honored!
Reminder: This is our fourth post recapping some of our favorite shirt sightings thus far. It’s all to celebrate the re-release our MY WARdrobe: Black Flag Tribute Shirt in an exciting Everything Went Black Ink/Black Shirt edition on April 21, 2012. Plus, Ron/Chavo pins. Plus another new pin! And…more?
Ignore the beard and bare chest and focus (demurely) on the chest (shirt, actually) on the right: that shirt/chest belongs to The Backstage Rider, aka Mikala Taylor.
We’ve written before about Backstage Rider, but the post has been permanently suspended in the space between this blog and a future site upgrade. This is a shame, because it was very flattering! She’s an awesome Canadian (a redundant phrase, that) based in Vancouver, BC who’s a serious music fan and even more serious music blogger. She’s also nice to strangers making a Black Flag Tribute Shirt, for which we thank her.
Why else is she cool? Besides having a Duran Duran fixation, she taught Lou Barlow how to tweet! What more cred do you need? The answer is none. None more cred.

One of the highlights of 2011 was when Dimitri Coats accepted our offer/gift of a MY WARdrobe: Black Flag Tribute Shirt. But one of the higher highlights of 2011 was his decision to wear it at their Atlanta show, back in March:
Punk rock supergroup OFF! played Atlanta’s Drunken Unicorn last week. Their collection of EPs is a favorite in the office, so the whole Fabrication Fabrication team was in attendance. Also there, as modeled above by Dimitri Coats, was our Keith & Ron & Dez & Henry MY WARdrobe…
The highest highlight of that higher highlight of a night? Getting our personal copy autographed by Keith Morris. A gentleman and a legend!

When Rollins lamented “Now she’s black” on Loose Nut was he talking about an actual woman, waxing metaphoric about emotions, or uttering a reference to our MY WARdrobe: Black Flag Tribute Shirt 27 years prior to its arrival? Let’s bow to the prescience of Hank. Our all-new, all-black, all-Black-Flag-Tribute-Shirts are on their way!
For Record Store Day 2012, we wanted to do something special, something that really captured the beautiful black spirit of buying beautiful black vinyl with beautiful Black Flag etched into it. Hence, everything went black for this limited edition: a BLACK shirt with BLACK ink. Black! Take me back! Black!
We’re also reuniting our two versions of the MY WARdrobe: Black Flag Tribute Shirt for this special Black/Black Black Flag configuration:
Making its debut will be a never-before-available Chavo version of our SLIP IT pIN: Black Flag Tribute Button. BLACK! Let me (p)in!
Shirts will available for order starting on April 21, 2012. For the latest updates, you should follow Fabrication Fabrication on Twitter, Instagram, or give us your email and get The Occasional Fabrication.
All orders come with a free Fabrication Fabrication sticker.
More details (and pictures) to come. Don’t gnaw off your knuckles in excitement.
It’s Black Friday here in the US, where a relentless drumming of ads incites people to buy, buy, buy.

Just like our shirts, but free, and a better fit on your computer or portable device.
