With the Lot – Greasy Rider

WTL_GR_Jacket_back

With the Lot have been testing and tasting all manner of goodness and are set to launch another amazing addition to their delicious streetwear collection at 11pm, 16 September 2015. (AEDT)

“This collection wasn’t made for the kids who sat at the back of the bus. This is for all the daydreamers, the mathbook-scribblers and schoolyard weirdos. This is for the Davids who conquered their Goliath, the unsung heroes – the underdogs like me.” – Mike Eleven, Head Chef.

Damo: Who is AnyForty?
Al: AnyForty is a homegrown brand, that specifically works with artists from all over the world, from unknown to globally established, on a range of artist collaboration products ranging from tees, to pin badges and self published coffee table books to sticker packs.

With the Lot

IMG_0890

VNA 24 featured artist Mike Eleven has been busy cooking up some tasty treats with a not-so-serious, independently owned label from Melbourne, Australia, ‘With the Lot’.

Bringing together burgers and T-shirts, the brand oozes a delicious, fun-lovin’ attitude. Disgruntled by the amount of brands claiming to rebel the norm, ‘With the Lot’ aims to pierce through the meaty fiction and represent individuals who aren’t afraid to ask for everything in life – and yes, they’d like fries with that!

‘With the Lot’ borrows heavily from head chef Mike Eleven’s colourful personality, subjective humour and acquired taste in torso fashion.

As the art world continues to grow and develop, we’re trying to age gracefully too, with a move towards the broader culture that surrounds street art and graffiti.
