Cropped Flare Jeans & Graphic Ringer Tee

I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking for a t-shirt printed with my year on it. Ever since I saw Pernille Teisbaek wearing the sold out “1984” Gosha Rubchinskiy version. I think that was last year. Every time I go to Zara or Stradivarius or Forever21, I’m confronted with t-shirts emblazoned with either earlier years—because they are far enough to be considered cool and nostalgic—or later years, because it’s likelier that an actual 21 year old (born around 1996) would be shopping at F21, or any of the more affordable Inditex retailers, for that matter. It always made me feel so old, and in this weird “your age isn’t cool anymore” limbo. Actually, that’s not what I think of myself or my age. But that’s how I thought those retailers thought of us, and it made me feel uncomfortable in a small way. Then, remember how I told you I just discovered that Mango has eCommerce for Panama? Well, thanks to them, I finally found my elusive birth year—on a ringer tee, nonetheless! Perfectly rad and nostalgic, don’t you think?
