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.
