The opening crawl for 8 x 8: A Chess Sonata in 8 Movements – a 1957 experimental film directed by Jean Cocteau, Marcel Duchamp, and Hans Richter – reads: The rules of the game are fixed. The pieces arranged by file and by rank. Eight lines. Eight times eight squares solidly framed on a board and set on a table… And yet, if everything, even what’s fixed, must sometime or other start moving, then why should the humble be patient forever?
And why should anyone? If you, like us, have grown impatient – with progress, with time, with patience itself – you can say it in 100% organic cotton with this circular knit natural white shirt. Printed with the 8 x 8 film title in black on the front and three metallic effect chess pieces – rendered with the 032c logo stamped on the base – on the back.
