Do you guys remember this post?

Does my son look like Zoolander or Mickey Rourke?

Yeah, it’s a sweet little Finn-monkey photo, right? Well, how about that shirt?

I did a little digging and I’ve found the gentleman behind this as well as many other INSANELY RAD t-shirts and onesies.

They range from newborn onesies all the way up to 12 year-old youth shirts and the shirts he uses are from American Apparel, a local, sweatshop-free clothing manufacturer here in Los Angeles.

3rd Interview-gasm!

Phil Rowntree of YoungPunks.comMeet Phil Rowntree and his son, Fionn, of

CHARLIE: What made you decide to be the Wolfgang von Mozart of rad t-shirts?
PHIL: My son Fionn was singing along to The Queen of the Night and I realized he needed some clothes.

CHARLIE: Why does the color yellow smell like lemons?
PHIL: It doesn’t, but it probably should – your question makes me happy, as it makes me think of lemonade, which is yellow and does smell of lemons – so perhaps I’m wrong – either way, I love lemonade.

CHARLIE: Have you ever told the parent of a kid you saw out-and-about that they were wearing your shirt only to have them throw wads of cash at you?
PHIL: Yes I have seen kids wearing my shirts and yes I have pointed out that I made their kid’s shirt. Unfortunately none of them have thrown any money at me and they usually look at me like I’m some sort of weirdo – I find that letting my son give them a bunch of Young Punks stickers usually stops them calling the authorities.

CHARLIE: What is your favorite word in Swahili?
PHIL: Bollocks! is my favorite word in every language.

CHARLIE: Does my breath smell?
PHIL: Only in the mornings 😉

    Great article! Great alternative to having to buy kid’s clothes from Carter’s all the time.

    Sometimes I think Build-a-bear and Carter’s get their stuff from the same place.
