Type Wear sells clothing and accessories adorned with the graphic letterform: original designs borne out of a love for modern typography and the interplay of language and meaning.
You don't have to able to read in order to appreciate what is offered here, but it helps. You don't have to "get it," but Type Wear hopes you can appreciate how a curated selection of type, combined with color and layout decisions, can add indeterminate depth and appeal to the printed word, while producing unique visual designs that you may want to wear.
Beyond the visual, amorphous labeling and identity certainly play a part here. Light-hearted or heavy handed? The choice of word(s) can be either, neither, or both. Type Wear's founder — Mark Gentile, a graphic designer living in Hollywood, CA — believes there is power in NOT always filling in the blanks, so to speak. Simple, literal translations of words are not always sufficient. Tone, connotation, context, and one's own experiences shape perspective and, thus, the meaning of words.
This summary is what Type Wear is all about.
