So we're in the middle of a bit of early spring cleaning around here...as in going through what clothing fits or is worn out and in need of replacing. Granted, most of it won't be replaced until we get to Florida in a few months time. We are not too shallow to brave the hordes and hit an outlet mall near St. Pete's.
However, I have discovered something disturbing. My t-shirt collection currently sucks.
I've always prided myself on having a decent t-shirt collection. You know, something with a bit of humour or a bit of history to it. I have a beloved Guinness shirt that has been around since the early 90s. Alas, it recently got some paint on the sleeve, so we'll have to see. It might be in need of replacing. It's not like I drink Guinness, but I still like the shirt.
But the rest of my fun shirts have worn out. Or they weren't as fun as I thought they were going to be because the sizing was wrong or the material was crap. Regardless, I am in need of new t-shirts.
Now, there's no shortage of t-shirt websites out there, but I figured since I have a readership out there, I'd check and see what sites people like. And it's not enough to have fun designs or be cheap. I'm done with cheap t-shirts. So, for example, if the site is using American Apparel then forget about it. Ever since Living Planet switched over to them I won't buy from them anymore. I've been burned by one too many fun t-shirts with cheap material from them.
So yeah, if readers have a site they would recommend for fun, good quality shirts, pass it along. I'm in dire need of an upgrade.
Oh, one other things, more of a housekeeping note, Republic of Doyle's new season begins this Wednesday. As I seemed to be the only person reviewing individual episodes online (well, The Scope had a snarky Twitter feed) I think I'll keep doing it again this year. Of course, the massive traffic boost the blog gets whenever I do one of these reviews has nothing to do with it at all.
So stay tuned Wednesday evening for the return of the Doyle Reviews.
