Must Buy Shirt: John Hughes tribute by Dutch Southern

Our good friends over at Dutch Southern have just released another wicked shirt. This one's called "Shermer, IL," and is a tribute to the late John Hughes. One thing about those Southerns, they are so clever and fun with their shirt designs. You have to be a diehard fan to know Shermer, Illinois is the fictional suburb of Chicago that almost all of John Hughes films take place in.

For this tribute shirt, here are the characters we're given followed by radical (yeah, I'm totally slapping an '80s adjective on that one) descriptions:

SIXTEEN CANDLES -- Farmer Ted showing Sam's panties to a roomful of geeks.
THE BREAKFAST CLUB -- Bender fist-bumping the sky after surviving another day of detention.
WEIRD SCIENCE -- Gary and Wyatt watching killer mutants crash their party.
PRETTY IN PINK -- Duckie serenading Andie with Otis Redding.
FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF -- Bueller serenading Chicago with The Beatles.
SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL -- Keith practicing on Watts.

You can purchase the shirt for $21 HERE. It was designed by Evanimal and is printed on American Apparel, so it's going to feel so good against your body. Simple Minds once sang, "Don't You Forget About Me," and because of these dudes, we won't.
