In 1995 Six Eight Seven Six was launched citing the Situationist International’s ethos, student activism in Europe, The USA,Japan & the year zero explosion that was punk rock. 50 years later we are returning to Paris after a long hiatus to present our capsule Modern Studies range and after numerous requests we have decided to commemorate this anniversary with a product.
This time we’ve dispensed with the now familiar imagery that represents 68 and have produced a T-shirt with words and true to the Situationist spirit presented it in the style of a Band Tour T-shirt .
What can the revolutionary movement do today?
What is it turning into in the hands of the parties and the Unions ?
What does it want?
The Realisation of a classless society through the power of the workers councils.
Our classic 6876 Woodcut font given a stencil treatment and printed black on black. (slight sheen effect)
Released on Black Friday to be sold at Full price, no discounts and no concession to a pointless exercise by the large corporate companies that sell and produce products that ultimately have a built in margin to be able to create these false incentives
Due to the popularity of our Japanese produced collaborative projects we decided to go one step further and develope our own product sourced and manufactured in Japan. Working with premium suppliers and longstanding 6876 contacts the 68 JP 1 shirt is the first garment in a series that the brand will be releasing over the coming seasons.
Manufactured in Japan.
Fabric:100% heavy cotton chambray and mother of pearl buttons.
Front: signature style centrally placed pocket and label
A graphic with its roots and reference in the tumultuous era of late 60’s Paris.
The representation of revolt against ruling powers when their methods become autocratic and unyielding as opposed to the current era we live in where too many times the frustrations of our situations turn the populace against each other.
