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.

          I am totally going to the t-shirt day celebrations since they’re right down the street from my office.

          The T-Shirt Project is just an attempt to document all the t-shirts I’ve picked up over the years, though it’s also grown as I keep seeing new t-shirts to pick up and friends keep giving me shirts they’ve picked up. I’m angling to post at least 100 photos, and I’m getting close.

    Really dig the shirt with state outline and the heart over our glorious city. Anywhere to find one before Monday [ie not the internet]?
