Sartorial front

While not normally a big fan of T-shirts, Lord Bassington-Bassington really fell for this one by Spiritual Front. The shirt is inspired by Russian prison tattoos, and has Cyrillic script that makes His Lordship recall many a language lesson in younger years.

And speaking of language lessons, Lord Bassington-Bassington feels quite certain that wearing one of these shirts will make you pronounce your Italian perfectly, as demonstrated by Spiritual Front headman Simone Salvatori himself, in a small restaurant in Rome's Testaccio district last year.



Shirts can be ordered directly from


  1. The shirt is nice, but I really don't like the new sound of Spiritual Front.

    Yes, I know, I'm always complaining!

  2. Haha, complaining is a fun sport for the entire family.

    Perhaps you're turning emo?

  3. Last time I looked in the mirror I wasn't emo yet.

    On a more positive note I loved Satyriasis and Armageddon Gigolo and they are still amongst my favorite neofolk albums.

  4. I like to think that some day, Mr. Salvatore will have the breakthrough he so richly deserves and become some sort of rock star - just a bit nicer than your average rock star.

    Or, failing that, he will put on about 40 kilos, buy a sequined jumpsuit and make his living as an Elvis impersonator.

    Either outcome would be fabulous.
