Good news, menfolk. Old City's Art in the Age has created a limited-edition apparel collection just for you (well, mostly). A collaborative effort between AITA and Norman Porter, Taylor Stitch, Ebbets Field, and W&P Design, the collection—a nod to Philly's once-reigning textile industry—is based on old Philadelphia prints from Philadelphia University's textile print archives.
Click through the photo gallery for a sneak peek at the collection, which will hit Art in the Age on Friday, November 1, in time for a First Friday reception.
