TSPTR is an acronym standing for Truth, Symmetry, Pleasure, Taste and Recognition. Creating garments that channel the history of American counterculture and sub cultures, exploring politics, music, protest, pop culture and war, with a little help from our favourite characters from Peanuts.
During the early 1960s Schulz gave permission for the US Airforce to use Snoopy as their official ‘war dog’ mascot. As a WWII veteran himself, Schulz began to use the Flying Ace scenarios as an allegory for what was happening in Vietnam, expressing his own feelings about the horrors of war. Rather than explicitly criticise the strategy or politics of the US military, he used the Flying Ace and his battle against The Red Baron to communicate the absurdities of war and convey his empathy for the American troops and his deeply ambivalent feelings about the Draft.
