'Murphy's Law' Hooded Sweatshirt
Screen print on cotton hoodie
The year was 1949, Captain Edward A. Murphy was working as an engineer on the Air Force Project MX981. This project conducted a series of crash tests with Air Force Doctor Col. John P. Stapp, as the human test subject. After an equipment malfunction, Murphy cursed at a technician, “If there is any way to do it wrong, he’ll find it”, and later became the saying “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”, which we call Murphy’s Laws today. On the backside of the hoodie, there are scattered stamps that depict various combat-related iterations of Murphy’s Law. On the front reads “Front Towards Enemy”, which is printed on claymores to prevent friendly fire.
