I do love a nice t-shirt, especially as the weather gets warmer, and ShirtStack is a great way to expand your collection with some fun and unusual designs.
The premise is very simple: you choose form the HUGE range of designs on their website, set up your subscription, choose how many you want, and they send you a new one every month. You can choose between unisex and female cuts for the shirts: the unisex is the familiar boxy shape, and the female has a slightly wider neckline and shorter sleeves, plus is slightly shaped at the sides. We’re talking gently curved rather than skintight!
With the shirts and designs, you choose the colour of the shirt as well as the design. This is really useful as some of the designs will look better on different colours of background – you probably wouldn’t want a black design on a black shirt!
Oh, and if you prefer to be surprised, just set up a subscription and they will just send out a different randomly chosen shirt every month. The designs cover everything more movies to comic books to games to pop culture, often with a twist or humorous interpretation.
Last month I chose a fun retro Star Wars design, and this month I’ve got something totally different – a kitty version of the famous feminist icon Rosie the Riveter!
I really do like this design, it’s both cute and tough and a fun twist on the image everyone knows.
As for the shirt itself, I get the female cute design and you can see how the neck is wider than on a regular shirt. I also choose to get a size that is a little roomier, because I like my clothes looser, but it still fits very well and loos terrific.
The shirt I have this month is white, and I’m pleased to note that unlike many white t-shirts, it is not horribly thin and see-though. This can be quite rare in a white t-shirt, and really does attest to the quality, even though the fabric itself doesn’t feel heavy.
The quality, I have to say, is absolutely gorgeous. ShirtStak take their eco stuff seriously. The shirts, which are gorgeously soft and wash brilliantly, are made from organic cotton, the dye is eco-friendly vegetable-based, and they print to order rather than making a ton of randoms. They even donate any shirts that have errors in the printing process.
