Earlier this year, photographer Pieter Hugo took a trip to Jamaica to shoot archive Hood By Air looks on street cast models. The selection of subjects included male porn stars, prostitutes, and members of the Gully Queens community in Kingston, who are forced to live in the sewers beneath the city due to homosexuality still being illegal. The evocative images, which were published in a photo book titled PH & HBA in July, are now being presented on a series of limited edition raglan shirts, available today. There are seven styles in the Pieter Hugo x Hood By Air collection, priced at $300 each on HBA's website. View the looks in the slideshow below.
