La Cosa Emo
T-shirt designers Laki Politis and Marc Edgar are still in college, but that hasnt hampered their clothing-biz careers. Up in their hometown of Wellington, you might even call them made men. Thats where Politis first started hocking tees emblazoned with the words 561 Wellington Mafia to kids at his high school (were sure administrators loved that). The two rode the success of the Mafia craze into a whole line of tees called Mafia Wear Clothing. While the name may be a tongue-in-cheek evocation of gangsta life, the tees are actually styled with an East L.A., punk-rock vibe (crisp line art, Old English lettering, splatters of fake rust and blood). Saturday at 6 p.m., Mafia Wear will throw a fashion party at Rays Downtown Blues (519 Clematis St., West Palm Beach, 561-835-1577) to celebrate its new digs, with performances by local hardcore acts the Midnight Life, On Watership Down, and more. Tickets cost $8. Visit www.wearmafiawear.com.
