Fortunately, New Kids on the Block -- aka NKOTB -- won't be making a comeback anytime soon. But, while the group is no longer producing music, they're still popping up in the fashion world -- although, these days, anything adorned with New Kids' faces is considered "vintage," and targeted at adults instead of tweens. (Doesn't that make you feel old?)
Like this Joey Mcintyre t-shirt, found in the sale section of Urban Outfitters' website. What better way to prove that you're a honest-to-goodness grown-up than by making an ironic statement about your nerdy grade school years?
Every single girl in my elementary school was obsessed with Joey, Donnie, and the rest of the gang -- so, of course, all the boys hated them. Thus, for old times sake, I'm required to remark that Joey was a funny-looking kid, and that is the dumbest hat I've ever seen.
However, it's also worth noting that because Mr. Mcintyre is an enormous geek, it makes the shirt all the more wearable.
