Brings Sexy Back

There is no better way to spend spring break then to hide your blubber and milky white skin under a comfortable plus size t-shirt while everyone else frolics around you having fun. At least that has always been my experience. So last year when one of my friends suggested we get our posse custom spring break t-shirts I was the first to throw down some cash. I thought a t-shirt explaining my slow metabolism and sensitive skin was a cool idea but I was quickly out voted for some snappy little saying about how hard we party. Like every other year my spring break began with a new year’s resolution to have a six pack by the time I board the plane. I was close to achieving my resolution but only had time to chug five before the final boarding call. However, all was not lost. While the group was working its way to the gate a cluster of girls took note from our custom t-shirts that we were all headed the to the same place. By the time we landed the t-shirts had caused two of my friends to find their spring break romances. I was only three friends away from sitting in the room (when it wasn’t “occupied”) formulating my new strategy for Dungeons and Dragons. Fortunately, it rained the first day so I was spared the “pleasure” of the beach. Instead we spent the morning strolling in and out of the rain and tacky tourist shops packed with t-shirts and seashell wind chimes. Somehow among all the clutter two more friends had managed to find their spring break bunnies. As me and the other lonely guy walked back to the hotel our custom t-shirts got some more attention. Unfortunately it was from a group of guys in greek t-shirts making some comments about the way my now very wet t-shirt fit my rather large pectoral area. I thought who cares what they say, there’s nothing wrong with being compared to Pamela Lee in a wet t-shirt. She’s a nice enough lady. People love her, right? We pressed on towards our hotel passing party after party and receiving many positive jokes and comments about our t shirts. Finally we were invited in to a party. They had everything; beer, food and chicks! Many of them were also refugees from the rain and were playfully sporting wet t-shirts. One got my eye right away. She had long red hair that framed the face of a porcelain doll, laid across her gallant shoulders and onto her colossal chest. Just physically we had so much in common. I wanted to say hello but as usual my nerves go the best of me so I buried my face in a bowl of potato chips. As the bowl was about ½ gone I notice her walking toward me with one hand behind her back. Oh no, what do I do? Does she want the chips? Is she coming to spit on me? Ask me my bra size? Oh no… munch much…. She’s coming closer …… crunch crunch…… oh God! What’s behind her back? Was she dared to throw bacon grease on me? I close my eyes hoping it will all go away when I hear the voice of an angel ask “so do you party as hard as your t shirt says?”. I open my eyes to see her and a bottle of tequila. Whew, I was so relieved when Bethanie introduced herself and served me up a shot! Turns out we had a ton in common and we had both ordered from Later that night we parted ways but before doing so we traded our custom apparel as mementos. My custom t-shirt got me her custom thong. Thanks TheShirtPrinter!

Oh and one t-shirt tip. This video is a must see for any spring breaker taking off their t-shirts.

American Idols Randy Jackson Revitalizes Vintage 70’s Radio Clyde T-Shirt

A t-shirt made famous by rock legend Frank Zappa in the early 80’s has sprung into the lime light once again. American Idol Judge Randy Jackson has been sporting this vintage t-shirt as well as Desperate Housewives star Doug Savant. This retro t-shirt has made quite a splash on the other side of the pond as well. Kaiser Chief’s Ricky Wilson, Scots singer KT Tunstall and ex-Wet Wet Wet Star Marti Pellow have all been seen in this trendsetting screen printed t-shirt. According to US Style Magazine it is the most sought after fashion accessory of the year. Pick up your Radio Clyde 261 custom t-shirt on ebay.

Zappos Cease and Desist T-Shirt

Because nothing goes better with a with a well worn ringer t shirt than a new pair of Chuck Taylor’s and I have developed a very close relationship. For years I have spread the good word of their outstanding service. One time I was traveling and the seam blew out on a brand new pair of vans. As always, I was on a shoe string budget (pun intended) so I was, stranded with only the t-shirt on my back, and a handsome smile. I called Zappos and they had a new pair for me at my hotel the following morning. Another time, while living abroad, I was having trouble placing an order. I called in and the problem was quickly resolved. A week later i got a handwritten card in the mail letting me that they enjoyed helping me and wished me the best of luck sporting my new kicks. This week Zappos got my attention with their brilliant marketing. They have a new t-shirt and it only cost $50,000! Zappos cease and desist t-shirt comes with a guarantee to stop your wife from shopping at Zappos. I don’t know if it will sell but it definitely got me to the site and of course I have a new pair of chucks. Now, off to look for a new reto t-shirt.

There are many people in this world whose ingenuity I truly admire. Ranking at the top would be Subway spokesperson Jared and independent film maker Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me). These guys managed to make a nice chunk of change doing what I do best. Eating! Now, I probably couldn’t’t choke down Micky D’s for a month nor would I be able to keep myself from pudging back up to a plus size t-shirt but, I could definitely do what my latest hero is doing. Jason is making his way in this world by sporting custom t shirts for whoever is willing to pay him. He is currently sold out till through June and if he sells out the year he will make at least $66,000. And, have to do very little laundry! If your willing to pay the going rate, which is now at a min of $200.00, he will show off your small business uniform, religious t-shirt, greek t-shirt or you can create your own t shirt for him. He will also take photos and blog about his experience wearing your shirt. We are going to keep track of Jason at and see if his year sells out.

Alfred Shaheen 1922-2008

The Hawaiian Shirt worn proudly by tacky tourists, Miami Vice fans, and Mr. Furley will live on but the person who brought us this classic fashion trend has passed away. Alfred Shaheen was a textile manufacturer who revolutionized the garment industry in postwar Hawaii by using old kimono fabric to create the Aloha Shirt. Not only did this man provide comfort to Elvis, Jimmy Buffet, and Weird Al Yankovic but he paved the way for Aloha Fridays which eventually spread to the continental United States and became known as Casual Fridays. Though we left our Hawaiian Shirts in the 80’s we salute this man for bringing us closer to t-shirts and further from starched white dress shirts! Thanks Alfred we hope they buried you the most stylish of Aloha Shirts. May you rest in peace.

Supports Dallas Walk-a-Thon for the Homeless

Check out how good these walkers look! The artwork on this particular shirt originated from a drawing done by a 10 year old child who is a member of Rainbow Days, an organization that sponsors a summer camp for homeless children. Event Coordinator Donna Vanness said “The folks at really went above and beyond the call of duty for me. Not only did they produce eye-catching custom t-shirts and provide stellar customer service they were there to volunteer their services the day of the event! This world would be a better place if everyone was like them!”
