toby goodshank tour jacket 1 Toby Goodshanks 2014 Summer Tour Jacket

Infamously prolific musician and visual artist Toby Goodshank managed to salvage some of his T-shirts that were damaged in a flaming candle mishap by turning the unscathed T-shirt remnants into this dashing jacket that he will wear on his tour this summer.

Back in February, on my last trip to Germany, a bunch of my t-shirts accidentally caught fire in a freak incident involving fake fur and tea lights. Neither the fur nor the open flame were my idea, but I did come up with the idea of cutting out the bits of t-shirt that didn’t bear the scars and making something nice out of them. This is that.
