Due to the volume of requests we have received since its initial release in late 2020, we are stoked to announce the launch of a NEW DESIGN of Nowhere Fast’s Best-Selling T-shirt ~ DEATH PEGASUS! There’s a dark, gothic nod to this new design with its batwing vibes that feel spooky and right on to us. Oh, and there are now cool DEATH PEGASUS 7″ X 5.5″ sets of opposing decals in our shop too!
There are many interesting, historical bits to discover in the Bunny Yeager Archive at the University of Miami Special Collections. Bunny Yeager was clearly the “world’s prettiest photographer,” and was into “finding regular girls around Miami,” in the 1960s. She had famously photographed Bettie Page in several exotic locations across Florida too.
The Selvedge Yarddefinitely sells a lot more black tees than any other color. I get it. I love black too. When I’m not wearing a black tee , I’m wearing a Heather Grey Tri-blend T-shirt. It’s a perfect mid-weight 50/25/25 blend of poly / combed ring-spun cotton / rayon knit that reduces shrinking, and is super-soft.
I like how Tri-blend tees age with wear, getting softer with each wash and gradually breaking down to feel perfectly aged like your coveted, old vintage poly / cotton blend gym shirt.
“Rita Moreno knew how to make her cheating boyfriend jealous long before the age of social media. The task is simple; just a three-step process. First, date screen legend Marlon Brando. Second, find evidence of his affair (what would be the first of many). Third, get asked on a date by Elvis Presley and accept. While this seems like a page of Old Hollywood fan fiction, this was, in fact, Moreno’s life.” –From the pages of Vanity Fair.
“She (Gloria Pall) was quite openly in touch with her sexuality, and that was an incredibly dangerous thing to do. We don’t have too many stories for that time that illustrate that, and Gloria’s does.” ~R.H. Greene

“I try to carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the belly of India. I haven’t even come close to fulfilling my list—yet. . . . But in the traffic of L.A. with a helmet on, I’m just another asshole on the road.” –Brad Pitt (Photograph by Mark Seliger for DETAILS magazine at Humboldt Redwoods State Park to promote the film Fury, 2014.)

Wildwood was a blast this summer. As we planned our trip down the Jersey shore to TROG, we were lucky enough to have a great group of friends rally to pull-off an impromptu photo shoot for the new TSY women’s collection. Busy schedules and hangovers aside, this group gathered wearing smiles and bearing hugs at an ungodly hour. Thank you to these badass beauties: Nadine Anderson, Jessica Paviluk, Jocelyn Cohen, Natalie Finch. Thank you dudes behind the camera: Allan Glanfield assisted by Ryan Handt. Special thanks to the great folks at the Pink Cadillac Diner, and tattoo artist Electric Sheena for designing our new women’s TSY T-shirts. Art direction and styling by Ashley Smalley.
In 1991, photographer Peter Lindbergh shot the elite eight of the world’s sexiest Supermodels in Brooklyn, NY for the September 1991 issue of American Vogue– Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz, Helena Christensen, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Karen Mulder, and Stephanie Seymour. The shoot titled “Wild at Heart” was styled by Grace Coddington, featuring looks that were a hi-lo mix of Chanel meets Schott– and we in the fashion world have never been the same since. This iconic editorial spread continues to inspire and awe to this day– over 20 years+ later. The Brit bikes featured throughout really make this work– several Triumphs, and I think I even spied a BSA in there as well!
Marlon Brando as Johnny in the Iconic motorcycle film “The Wild One” which simultaneously thrust biking forward into the limelight in terms of popularity and style, while setting it back in terms of stereotypes and the court of public opinion. Marlon Brando rode his own 1950 Thunderbird in the film– a big boost for Triumph motorcycles. You can read more about that here.
