Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Aly Walansky

Imagine being able to tell your friends, kids, and coworkers that you’ve had John Lennon draped across your bosom?

Well, I have.


Not in a way that would have pissed off Yoko, I sadly must confess. Worn Free apparel merges rock ‘n’ roll, fashion, and pop culture history … all on a stylish cotton t-shirt! Bold and sexy, all their T-shirts are famously worn or designed by cultural icons including John Lennon, Frank Zappa and John van Hamersveld.

The fab touch of rock history and revolution embracing my chest at the moment is based on one of John Lennon’s favorite old hang outs, Home. At the time, the founder Richard Ross created a place for equal people to eat, drink and jam. Today, Home is a clothing store owned by the Ross family in San Diego, CA. – and is immortalized on my boobies! (And, perhaps, yours as well?)

Come on, Metro Mama…don’t you ache for a little rebellion? Let your wild side roam free and go “vintage” with Worn Free. Available at, these hip tees will have you the talk of your tea party. Just don’t invite Yoko.
