GREY T-SHIRTS MATTER | THE UNSUNG HERO: SUPER-SOFT HEATHER GREY TRI-BLEND TEES
CRAIG VON SCHROEDER / CO-FOUNDER OF COMMONWEALTH PROPER / PHL – ATL – PITT WEARING OUR “FTW – SCREAMIN’ EAGLE T-SHIRT” IN HEATHER GREY, TRI-BLEND JERSEY

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.

However, he was still not much known outside of the USA. Roberts went on to finish 2nd in the AMA Grand National Championship that year, his first season as an expert class rider.
HOW RITA MORENO USED ELVIS TO MAKE CHEATING MARLON BRANDO JEALOUS
“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.Continue reading
