Brian Wood’s Brooklyn Alumni Sweater featuring Lil Kim, Notorious BIG and Larry David


I’m a little shy about walking around my neighborhood wearing Brian Wood’s sweatshirt with the faces of born-in-Brooklyn legends, since I’m neither a Brooklyn native nor a legend. It makes me feel like I better do something great with my life if I’m going to cut it here. Biggie’s shoes are definitely too big for me to fill, and I did not even know that Michael Jordan was from here, which means Brooklyn birthed the best rapper and the best basketball player of all time. But I do feel a kinship with Lil Kim and Larry David, so that’s cool. I wouldn’t necessary want to model my life after Mike Tyson or ODB, but at least they are originals. Which is maybe the point: there’s not a single person on this sweater who isn’t a wild character in some way. Originality is definitely worth striving for in your own life. For next year’s edition, Brian Wood, I nominate Aaliyah, Woody Allen and Rosie Perez.
