Licensed apparel for the Fillmore poster series is incredibly rare to find, put aside in unworn mint condition. The Fillmore Poster Ties collection stands out as one of the highest quality works of commemorative apparel, embracing the rare opportunity to carry the iconic designs of the 60's and 70's into fine menswear.
This commemorative tie from the series honors the BG-136 poster, featuring one of Rick Griffin's most famous images "Heart & Torch" which was so iconic that the title was later used in Griffin's biography. The beautiful colors, unmistakable lettering, and gorgeous symmetry of the art has drawn fans and collectors to this piece for decades now, but no where can you find such an elegant representation of Griffin's piece on apparel.
The art featured was originally designed by Griffin for the Bill Graham concert at Fillmore West in 1968 featuring Big Brother & The Holding Co., Santana, & Chicago Transit Authority.
