All shirts are made in the USA of 100% cotton (American Apparel). The sizes are “unisex”, which might mean closer to “men”. Here are the specific measurements.

Here are some reissues of shirts that originally came out in conjunction with the Microphones album “Don’t Wake Me Up” (K, 1999). This is in advance of the exciting forthcoming reissue series of all 5 Microphones albums that will come out throughout this year, 2013. They come in 3 colors: yellow, white, or red. They don’t say anything. Just the letter M inside a circle with disorienting lines coming from it. It could also be a Mount Eerie shirt I guess.
Q: What is that shirt of? A: It’s not really of anything. Q: But what does it say on it? A: “printing shed”. Q: Where did you get it? A: From the Mount Eerie guy’s record label website store. Q: Oh, so it’s a Mount Eerie shirt? A: I don’t think so. I think it’s just a “printing shed” shirt. Q: What does that even mean? A: Well, P.W. Elverum & Sun is a small company that celebrates self-contained small industrial styles, and they have a letterpress shop in the back shed behind the house where some of their stuff gets made. Q: Oh, so it’s an advertisement for their letterpress shop? A: No man, it’s not an advertisement like most shirts. It’s just meant to put the idea of a backyard printing shed into your mind, and small scale industrial manufacturing, and all that stuff about reclaiming the tools of production. Q: Oh. That shirt is shiny. A: Yeah, it’s metallic copper foil. I guess that the heavy black ink of the shed shape combined with the foil are meant to evoke the feeling of old style letterpress printing, also known as “the black art”. Q: OK. Goodbye.
A series of black t-shirts featuring the art of Theodor Kittelsen, legendary illustrator from old Norway, our favorite artist. The images are printed really big in white, although most of the images themselves are pretty dark, as in grim. (Only one design remains, although if you visit the Business in Anacortes, Wash. in person you’ll find the complete series available.)
