According to a post on Punknews, John "Porcell" Porcelly, a former member of such influential hardcore bands as Youth of Today, Judge, and Bold, has launched a straight edge clothing line called True Till Death Clothing.

According to Porcelly, the line is meant to pair his love of the straight edge movement with a love for graphic design. "My involvement with the hardcore scene has taught me a lot about design," he says. "Don't just create an image - create a mood. Set a tone. Convey what you're feeling inside through the medium, which is what art is supposed to achieve."

Based on some initial designs, it's hard to tell what mood Porcelly was trying to portray through Photoshop recreations of the Ramones and CBGBs logos. The shirts can be viewed in the True Till Death web store.
