Checked Out Style is a a line of t-shirts designed by Julai Whipple based on paperback novel cover art representing many genres, each with its own theme!
The line takes its name and inspiration from long-forgotten library books, and will be available via Etsy and at El Bambi. Each design is themed around a paperback book genre including gay pulp, 80s Young Adult, and True Crime. “Titles” include “Ladies Running Away From Mansions”--a mash-up of 60s gothic covers, and “Boys Will Be Boys”--the very best of campy gay pulp novels.
Each shirt is sublimation printed, front and back, and available in sizes S to XXL. The covers are laid out in a grid pattern, resulting in a bright, colorful design that will make it difficult for people not to stare at your chest.
Checked Out Style: the T-Shirt Launch will take place at El Bambi on Saturday March 24 from 7-9pm. There will be booze, beer, live tunes dj’d by Stewart of A Fistful of Soul, the shirts themselves and a photo wall to match, and of course the shop will be open for business to keep everyone looking fresh. The Checked Out line will remain in the shop post launch and will also be available on Etsy very soon.
El Bambi, located at 4721 North Main, Unit G, Houston TX, is open Wednesday through Saturday 11am to 8pm and and Sunday 12pm to 5pm.
