Thanks to BoingBoing, we are now following the sartorial adventures of a rock fan blogging about his T-shirt collection at MinorThread.com. Isac Walter's mission statement on his Tumblr reads, "I'm basically seeing how long I can go without wearing the same shirt twice. I'm guessing at least 500 days." Every day he publishes a photo of himself in a rock T-shirt and includes a little story about his selection. (Sample: "This shirt today was bought straight off the back of someone at a club.i think i traded the guy a vinyl version of whatever band was playing for it.he took his friends button up and walked in to the bathroom and swapped it out, and viola, i am the proud owner of a morrissey shirt form my fav era, Southpaw Grammar.") Walter's taste runs wildly eclectic — the Descendents to Flying Lotus to Sufjan Stevens. But we did catch him taking a break from a music shirt on day 91. (He made it up by wearing the pink Lily Allen number above.)
