Here’s a look at NY-based brand Major Threat’s spring line. Keeping up with their tradition of having in-your-face graphics and messages on their tees, the new line draws inspiration from NORE, Cops, The Clash and the “We Major” track Kanye and Nas did on Late Registration. These shirts will begin to hit sores like Goliath, Subdivision, Cap City, Moes & Co, and other retailers very soon.
