Vintage KUPD Coke Tee at Blue Jean Buyer

Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether
it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: If your New Year's resolution involves being more of a badass (or simply adding more hard-to-find tees to your wardrobe), then we'd like to point you toward Blue Jean Buyer.

The small shop has a rocker-meets-biker-meets-hippie vibe and its stock includes everything from a wall of vintage denim to Harley Davidson leather and vintage tees that'll leave those at the other end of the dive bar green with envy.

Found at the Tempe shop, this candy apple red KUPD tee originally hails from a concert series that big red radio put on in 1983, and it'll easily one-up any Urban Outfitted peers.

Where: Blue Jean Buyer

Cost: $25

Style this Gem after the jump.

Style It: Keeping with the rocker vibe, style the KUPD tee with a pair of comeback-ready flared jeans from Citizens of Humanity in a rich blue wash and a Current/Elliott dark wash stretch denim tuxedo-style dinner jacket. Accessorize with a gold double skull Alexander McQueen ring, saturated violet Brian Atwood pumps, and a circular leather Jil Sander clutch in black.
