Supreme They Fuck You Up Hooded Sweatshirt White
From FW16, This hoodie released by Supreme displays opening lines of the poem, “This Be The Verse" by Philip Larkin. The poem explores themes of family, relationships, and the impact of one's upbringing on their life.
The stark and controversial opening statement sets the tone for the entire poem, which suggests that parents, intentionally or not, pass down their own anxieties and issues to their children. The first stanza continues to suggest that we inherit not only our parents' traits but also their flaws and problems.
The second stanza touches on the cycle of human life, how the same things that happen to one as a child because of their parents will also happen to their children. The poem's title and repeated refrain, "This be the verse you grave for me," further emphasize the cyclical nature of family dysfunction and the inescapability of one's past.
The poem's final stanza offers a glimmer of hope, suggesting that the best one can hope for is to "get out as early as you can" and to "have no kids yourself." This is a rather bleak conclusion, but it reflects Larkin's view of the world as a place of suffering and pain, where the only escape from the cycle of misery is to avoid passing it on to future generations.
This poem excerpt has been carefully printed on the front of a heavyweight, Made in Canada cotton hoodie. Small text that reads Supreme is embroidered onto the top of the hood.
