This Just in!: Mind Over Matter from Perception Apparel
Posted March 15, 2011on:
A while back, I got a package form Perception Apparel, a company based in Virginia (represent!). It came nicely folded in a sealed plastic bag. I received a t-shirt called “Mind Over Matter,” and you will soon see why.
The title fits perfectly, no? I thought so, too. I really love this design, and it is one of the more “serious” pieces on the site. I’m not quite sure what the art direction of the brand is, as all of the designs are quite different from one another and there’s no one thing that ties them all together besides being labeled with “Perception.” Nonetheless, this is one sweet shirt and I am a fan of most of the other designs as well.
“Mind Over Matter” is printed on American Apparel, and it looks amazing in person. The shirt itself is oddly longer than my other black AA tees (by a couple of inches), but I figure it’s just this specific copy that I received. Other than that, a thing to note is that while in the main image found on the product page does not have any branding on it, the actual shirt itself (and the real product shot) has “Perception Apparel” at the bottom. I would have preferred it without the branding, but since it’s there, I’m glad that it’s a small addition to the design.
The print feels and looks great. You may have gotten tired of me saying that, but it’s true. I always end up surprised by the quality of shirts that I receive. Kudos, brands!
Here’s a closer look at the design:
The t-shirt also came with a rubber bracelet that says “Perception Apparel” on one side and “Dare to stand out” on the other. I think it would have been cool without the brand name, but it’s still a neat addition to the tee.
Overall, this is one awesome shirt from Perception Apparel! You can purchase “Mind Over Matter,” along with other shirts from Perception Apparel, for $20. They’re also having a spring sale going on, so you can take 15% off with the coupon code “SPRING.” Enjoy!
