Last night via his Twitter account, local designer and Project Runway alum Christopher Straub announced a return to his roots. He'll be debuting an all-new underwear collection for beginning this summer, with a women's collection to follow. Straub infamously got his start selling men's underwear crafted from vintage t-shirts under the name Cricket Syndicate out of his backback in Minneapolis nightclubs in the early 2000s, and the relics are now considered by many a collectible form of pop art. No word yet on whether this new collection will be made from recycled tees, but that was the underwear's main appeal so let's hope he does.
You can see new underwear designs from Straub on May 12 at the underwear-themed Retrorama 6 at the Minnesota History Center.
