Doug's X Pat Menzies
Doug’s X Pat Menzies — a co-production of limited product, designed for Doug's Mighty T-shirt and to radiate Pat’s legacy.
Pat Menzies is no stranger to New Zealand, spearheading Auckland's shoe revolution in 1975 — being the the first to bring Dr. Marten’s, Converse and Vans to the country. Pat developed their Queen Street location to house the whole operation — their retail store, an inner city warehouse, offices, dispatch and more recently a Converse concept store. Pat didn't stop there. He built a thriving business, a customer base that spans generations and a rich, important, kiwi legacy.
We were given access to some of Pat's archive, navigating newspaper clippings, original shop signs, hand-written notes and shoe boxes. Using the archive, we worked with local artist Riley Karl to design a t-shirt that radiates Pat's legacy. We think we've done it.
