FOR YOUR GARMENTERTAINMENT, 1 badge ready scout canvas 4 yer urban reconnoitre!

Here is your mission, should you choose to accept it: don this shirt 4 frequent funky urban treks to hunt + gather vinyl + macha / ’spro + wondrous kitschy thrift store plunder + microbrews + more than your share of slackin’ good times. I mean, how else are you going to earn your vinylista, barista appreciation, thrift maven, random kitsch-itude + champeen slacker badges?

Wearing this shirt will influence your behavior in other mysterious ways as well. You will be suddenly overwhelmed by a desire to help elderly ladies, hopefully the Queen, cross the street, whether they want to or not. You will be gripped by intense urges to light fires in MacGuyver fashion using only pencil shavings + warm thoughts. You will feel prepared to glue disparate items together for no apparent reason + then tie knots around them.

And hey, even for all you thrift aficionados, these can be hard to find. You might wait a long time to find one. Well, wait no more, cuz here’s one that’s even in adult size (Men’s S)!

BONUS: this fabric is intended to work hard: it’s made to be indestructable + very forgiving in the wash; under normal living, non-survivalist circumstances, it will last a very very long time + you are unlikely to wreck it in the wash, so owning this shirt makes you are instantly more accomplished in the laundry department!
