I found these reclaimed graphics of Cheech & Chong so much fun, I wanted to place them front and center on this shirt, let them stand alone and then play with the sleeves. I used these beautiful patterns in perfect colors that I cut from a shirt jacket, and placed them so that they would run all the way from the sleeves up to the collar of the shirt. For balance, decided on the graphic in the back and the stripes on one of the cuffs. And voilá, it made sense. The yellow embroidery thread is the icing on the cake.
