Back By Popular Demand: This Bud's for You. Budweiser Beer Gear Past & Present.

The Budweiser collection from Supreme NYC.

Beer drinkers unite! I guess. Or maybe those of you that are nostalgic for Grandpa's beer can hat or those funny shorts your uncle used to wear for the Fourth of July BBQ...they were red, white and blue after-all. NYC's Supreme team recently dropped a collection of Budweiser apparel that is straight back to the future. Back in the 60's and 70's there were many clothing products made by different companies from Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser logo. Fabric was even made available to the retail market, so if you couldn't find what you wanted you could sew it up yourself...perhaps you wanted to cover your whole living room set. Now that's serious. Of course there was (and still is thanks to the BeerCanHatLady on eBay) the oh-so-memorable beer can hat. Even my own Grandma used to crochet these bad boys up. Speaking of which, it seems to me that some sort of Bud beer can head gear is clearly missing from the Supreme collection...hmmmm. Although Supreme is a dude's brand, a "lady" can rock most of these beer gear items and call them her own. Yes, I used Lady and "beer gear" in the same sentence. Just go with me on this one.
