To fulfill customer demand triggered by the successful debut of the “What would Dino do? (and would he do it with me?)” t-shirt, the Heck Of A Guy New & Improved Leonard Cohen Merchandise Emporium1 has expanded the Dino Duds line with the introduction of the “Dino does it for trills” t-shirt.
Hitting The Beach With Leonard Cohen
The current series of New & Improved Leonard Cohen Merchandise associated with the World Tour is not the first instance in which Heck Of A Guy was moved to revise and enhance a Cohen-inspired retail item.
As chronicled in Throwing In The Leonard Cohen (Beach) Towel, the Raf Simons aesthetic that resulted in a beach towel carried by Colette, bearing the often-quoted words from the lyrics of “Anthem” by Leonard Cohen, “There is a crack in everything that’s how the light gets in” and a price just under $170 …
… was elegantly re-interpreted, at substantial cost savings, into the Heck Of A Guy New & Improved Leonard Cohen Beach Towel emblazoned with its own quote from a Cohen song, “Lie beside me, baby, that’s an order.” 2
This essential Cohen beach accoutrement is being brought back into production for sale at the final USA concerts because, after all, those snazzy signet rings won’t keep the sand out of your swimsuit.
