On Tuesday, August 8th, media and industry influencers gathered at the Rose Hill restaurant to view a new, buttery soft, innovative t-shirt line by Nighttrain No. 8. Founded by Jamie Antolini, a former Wall Street tycoon, the t-shirt line displays lyrics from songs from some of the most famous rock and roll musicians of all time.
The designer himself was at the event and was more than happy to share his story. Antolini used to spend his time on Wall Street before making the decision to take his talents as a businessman to a different area. With an eye for fashion trends and a passion for rock music, Jamie realized he was onto something great. He combined his skills and interests and immediately got to work on his vision to create a sexy, edgy t-shirt line.
In a short interview with Antolini, he said, “I see all of these young girls walking around in shirts with The Rolling Stones logo on them, and they have no idea who Mick Jagger is. I thought, the lyrics from these bands are powerful not just to old fans, but to anyone”. Bands featured on the shirts include Led Zeppelin, The Clash, and The Beatles. Any lover of music and art is guaranteed to adore these shirts. Each Nighttrain No. 8 t-shirt is made from 100% pure cotton, garment dyed and butter washed. These shirts are made to be worn for either a casual cup of coffee or dressed up for a night of drinks and dancing. Jamie does not plan on stopping there, he already plans on expanding his line to hoodies and long-sleeved shirts.
My favorite thing about this line is the passion within the designer. He took all of these different things that he cared about and he turned them into a career. When he talks about his clothing line, his excitement is infectious. If you want to wear clothing that was truly made from dreams, look no further.
Guests at the launch event were also welcomed to light bites and speciality cocktails by Double Cross Vodka. It was an exceptional night for an exceptional new clothing line. Check out Nighttrain No. 8 at their website here.
