It’s been a few years since I first discovered Miles to Go, and boy has it been a treat. I have loved watching the brand evolve and grow with each new release, going from simpler designs to complex masterpieces that are sometimes abstract, sometimes vintage, and sometimes something I can’t quite describe. Greg always finds new ways to innovate on the literature theme and this newest line for fall is no exception.
The works covered in this line span from Darwin’s Origin of Species, to a classic Poe poem, to Perks of Being a Wallflower. Brave New World is revisited in a new design and Catcher in the Rye gets a gorgeous type art design featuring its most famous quote. There are also some new logo shirts, though they are done in the tastefully branded and classy fashion I have come to expect from Miles to Go. I’m really impressed by how well-rounded this release is.
Ayn Rand and I disagree on a lot of things, but this design based on her book Anthem is just terrific. It is, perhaps, the best example of the sophisticated dark beauty present throughout the entire line. The illustration is haunting and thought-provoking and will almost certainly draw curious interest.
There’s something I love about vintage book covers. This tee based on Poe’s short story The Masque of the Red Death captures that something perfectly. The rough lines, distressing, and old-timey font are well-chosen details. This design is also available with a gray print, but I prefer the red for its tie-in with the book title and the striking contrast it has against the black tee.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower tee is one of the more intricate pieces, filled with interesting shapes, colors, and lines. I’m not familiar with the book, but I wish I was just so I could understand this design!
Brave New World is one of the only works featured in Miles to Go tees that I’ve actually read and thoroughly enjoyed. (Not much of a literature person myself.) I think this new design represents the book and its message to a tee, no pun intended. This black aqua version is nearly sold out, but you can still nab it in black.
