These grey heather shirts are 90 p.c cotton and 10 p.c poly. They match true to measurement (we have now a measurement chart in our retailer). Plus they’re made in Tennessee and printed proper right here in Covington.
Megan and our summer time intern, Harper, labored with our provider to comb by means of dozens of manufacturers to seek out those we appreciated. We narrowed it down to some totally different manufacturers and introduced these in for testing. These shirts had been far and away everybody’s favourite.
This shirt coloration and emblem will probably be our customary shirt for the subsequent couple years. Once we promote out of a measurement, we can rapidly and inexpensively resupply as a result of our display printer is only a few blocks away.
The brand is display printed in navy blue and is our “skep” (beehive) emblem design by Joshua Minnich. The skep and the bee have lengthy been symbols of woodworkers, who’re busy bees. Our skep and bees haven’t any connection to the Mormon church or Masons. There’s nothing fallacious with both of these storied organizations, it’s simply that the affiliation between bees and woodworkers pre-dates both of them. (Sorry if this paragraph appears bizarre. Individuals are all the time asking if the symbolism is related to one thing outdoors woodworking.)
These shirts are $27 – an important worth for a pleasant USA-made shirt. You possibly can order yours right here.
