“Are you a large person? Pleasantly plump? A little on the hefty side, perhaps?” All joking aside, quite a few of my friends are of the larger variety, and I know it can be tough for them to find cool threads in their size. A lot of times it’s hard for independent brands to stock the larger sizes – the blank shirts cost more, and there’s the risk that they just might not sell. Luckily you can count on Draplin Design Co. to bang out a solid design exclusively for the big men. It’s ONLY available in 2XL – 4XT!

Now, my rambling can’t even hold a candle to the captivating words that flow from Aaron Draplin‘s lips (or or from his fingertips, in this instance), so make sure you read the full description over at the Draplin Design Co. Merch site.

I really like when artists decide to print a shirt or two (or three…) on their own. It’s their own art in its truest form, with no client restrictions. This t shirt from Kevin Luong has been around for awhile, and I know when I finally get around to purchasing it, it’s going to be sold out in my size, and I’m going to be pissed. It is the lone shirt in Kevin’s store, but it is far from being overshadowed by the accompanying prints. Always support artists directly when you have the opportunity, you can purchase this shirt by following this link.

I get annoyed with sports apparel companies that create a generic design, and then just change the team name, logo, and colors so they can sell them to the fans of every team in the league. I like the sports teams I like because something makes them different from their competitors, so why wouldn’t I want my fan gear to be as unique as they are? That’s why it is great to support the independent brands that also happen to be creating designs that blow the big name companies out of the water. Most of these smaller companies don’t feature the teams’ names because of licensing fees, but if you’re a fan, you get the references.

I know not everyone is rooting for Jersey’s team in the Stanley Cup Finals, but if you are, you’ll appreciate this shirt from BustedTees. It’s as unique as Marty is, and there isn’t an alternate version in black and silver for Jonathan Quick.

For those of you could care less about the Devs (or even hockey for that matter), be sure to browse the other shirts under the Loyalist name; they cover a broad range of sports and teams.
