For my last entry of 2016, New York City does not disappoint. The first row starts with a powerful feminist message, followed by two heavily studded vests for U.K.’s Discharge, and NYC’s own Warzone. Row two begins with a huge Dead Kennedys patch, then an early Bad Brains logo done entirely with a black marker, and it ends with a clean collection featuring German thrashers Sodom. The final row has yet another amazing Noothgrush patch, trailed by one for a band I’d never thought to see at punk shows—Scottish synth-pop duo Strawberry Switchblade—and we finish off on a jacket sharing the props between MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, and England’s GBH.
