You guys gave us old tees. We're breaking them down to the fiber level and turning them into one-of-a-kind recycled tees. 

(Psst... the Re-Spun collection is coming April 28th. Save the date.) 

But before we sent 'em off, we saved a couple. They looked like they had stories behind them, so we reached out their previous owners to learn a little bit more about the story behind the tee. 

Here are some of our favorites: 

“I’ve had this shirt for about as long as I can remember. I had my first kiss in it, which was pretty tight. Briana, if you’re reading this, hey. Great times.” - Sebastian P.


“Did you know a group of manatees is called an aggregation? Weird, right? All in favor of officially renaming a group of manatees to manateam say ‘Aye.’ - Johann D.

“When I was getting my masters in Culinary Arts, people kept getting me Ratatouille shirts. I had no idea why I kept getting shirts with rats on them. It was like two months before I found out it was a movie. ” - Erin B.

“No explanation needed.” - Reina R.

“My wife gave this to me. It’s cool because my name is Dan.” - Dan G.


“This used to be my favorite shirt. But now I’m a vegetarian. So yeah, felt kinda weird wearing it. ” - Anne W.

“The worst part is, my husband bought this non-ironically. Marriage is tough work, folks.” - Gwen D.
