Pestle & Mortar Clothing Paid Homage To Thai Cult Classic Film With Tears of The Black Tiger Drop

One can’t deny that Pestle & Mortar Clothing is among the force to be reckoned with within the local streetwear sphere. And there’s a good reason for that. The clothing line is constantly creating and bringing something new to the table. Case in point: Tears of The Black Tiger collection for Spring/Summer 2018.

In the collection, Pestle & Mortar Clothing paid homage to the Thai cult classic flick “Fa Thalai Chon (ฟ้าทะลายโจร)”, combining equal parts spaghetti western and fatalistic love story with a cohesive representation of the iconic imagery which stuck in our collective consciousness.

In order to represent the scene in the best way possible, the brand added a 3M reflective features to make the Tiger’s eyes pop. The new collection comes with a change in fabrication to make it more wearable and weatherproof yet still scoring in the style department.
