It started with a tweet – for the past few years – Spreadshirt.com has declared June 21st International T-shirt Day. We posted a tweet yesterday suggesting a PGH t-shirt day celebration. A few tweets later – we had an event. Just finished a quick PGH t-shirt day get together with some of our PGH t-shirt friends from Commonwealth Press and Only in Pittsburgh. Here is what we have got cooking – a t-shirt day celebration and later this summer a t-shirt show of Pittsburgh t-shirts.
There is just something about the t-shirt and the PGH t-shirts. Before IheartPGH was a blog it was a t-shirt – the first t-shirt we ever screen printed was an IheartPGH shirt – years later it inspired this blog and many a t-shirt activity. We met Commonwealth Press from a flyer about t-shirt prinitng – our little PGH shirt helped us to become friends with the t-shirt guys in St. Louis – STL Style (Hi Jeff and Randy!) and IheartPGH and STL Syle’s shirts even made it to the New York Times. We are really excited about these PGH t-shirt events – looking forward to seeing all of the great PGH t-shirts.
Here are the details for the PGH T-shirt Day on Monday – stay tuned for more info about all things PGH t-shirt.
