Taylor Hicks, according to "It's a Soul Thing" blogspot, has some new merchandise to offer fans. It seems a design company, Alphabet Arm.com, has created a few new designs approved by Taylor Hicks' management. Searching Mr. Hicks' Official site, all I located was this page.
Checking out the new offerings written about on "It's a Soul Thing", I selected two to display on my page. One being the worst of the bunch, the other the best of the bunch. I'll let you dear readers determine which is which in my estimation.
The first example is a burgundy/brown tee with what looks like a vinyl decal, likely one of those thick kind that flake as you launder the shirt. The striking element of this design? Built on twist knobs strategically placed...what pops to mind as you view it? Maybe it's just my twisted mind. The blue one is a loud shade of aqua with harmonica stamping in yellow. Contrasting color combination the likes of the boy's department shirts I saw at the local Target. Incorporated into the design it appears perhaps some comic strip type work going on, but couldn't quite make out what it is since it's in just a lighter shade of blue than the shirt.

I'm hoping that this little bit of shirt design gone awry isn't a foreboding of more of 'when bad management happens to struggling musician'.
I had to show my Darling Man what I don't want under that Christmas tree. Mr. Hicks, please send those design folks back to that drawing table; or pick new designers.
Let's hope the bad taste in design and reinvention doesn't extend past this little jejune fashion faux pas.
