A statement on the Stüssy site reads: "Stüssy has collaborated with Portishead. This is the first time the band, formed in Bristol in 1991, has worked with a clothing company during their thirty-year career. The t-shirt design features the cover of their iconic album Dummy released in 1994."
While Stüssy claims it's the first time Portishead have worked with a clothing company, Stereogum reports that the band did team up with Supreme in 2011 for another t-shirt that featured Portishead's logo font.
Although the band haven't released new music since 2009's "Chase the Tear", they did release their cover of ABBA's "SOS" on SoundCloud in July last year, and lead vocalist Beth Gibbons featured onn Kendrick Lamar's Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers album track "Mother | Sober" last month.
