Featured Design: Dagen H

Featured Design: Dagen H

“Dagen H” (H Day) happened on 3 September 1967, the day that Sweden switched from driving on the left hand side of the road to the right. The "H" stands for "Högertrafik", the Swedish word for right hand traffic. It was by far the largest logistical event in Sweden's history, and the most massive overhaul in driving infrastructure that the world had ever seen. This was the logo for that campaign. Read the full REMO Story HERE.

We love this design ... although, in truth, our sales expectations for it are low. Having said that, we showed it to a 15 year old friend of our god daughter last night who declared that she would like nothing better than to wear the design and then tell the story to whomever was curious enough to ask.

Russian & Turkish 10th Street Baths Design

This REMO design story takes us to the Lower East Side of New York:

The 10th Street Baths (aka the Russian & Turkish Baths) is still the best place to get hot and wet in New York. This design made its debut as a REMO T Shirt way back in 1989 with blessing from owners Boris and David. It is a pretty faithful replica of their original tin sign.

Browse our full range of 10th Street Baths merchandise HERE.

Here's an image to get you into a hot & wet mood:

Eternity

Eternity

This is such a Sydney story.

For the 37 years spanning 1930 to 1967, a man named Arthur Stace walked the streets of Sydney ... and wrote on them; one word, always the same word, in yellow chalk in large, elegant copperplate.

That word was “Eternity.”
