    I have a collection of awesome t-shirts that I have built up through the years. A lot of old concert shirts, random, obscure ones for products that have come & gone, & some off-the-wall ones that just make people stop & say " That's an awesome shirt". Tonight I'm sporting my Chicago Fire Dept. V-neck. Its navy blue, with the CFD shield over the left part of the chest.
    Just after 9/11, my now wife (who I hadn't yet met at the time) & a friend of her's spent an evening baking cookies & brownies to distribute to local fire houses & police stations as a "Thank You". She received this shirt & it has since become one of my favorites to wear around the house. Any of you got a t-shirt that you are particularly proud of or just always seem to throw on. Random question...I know :rolleyes:

    I have too many t-shirts. I guess my 2 favorites read No, I will not fix your computer and There's no place like 127.0.0.1. A close second reads The wizard is about to die ... Needs food badly.

    I love t-shirts and fortunately have a job that lets me wear them on most days.

    I grew up on Quisp and I loved the guy on the box.

    Mandy Marie is the perfect woman. :D

    I have a tour shirt from the Neil Young/Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders tour from 2000 that is sacred to me. What a great night that was.

    I also have a shirt that displays CSN&Y as Simpsons characters.

    I have a shirt (although I'm not a huge fan & it was given to me by my older sister) from the very last Greatful Dead show that Jerry Garcia ever played. Hella Cool!

    I've Also got a Metallica shirt from a concert in Czeceslovakia (sp?) from the mid-90's from a show with The Cult & Alice in Chains. The best thing about it is where American-made shirts would say "100% Cotton" on the tag...it says "1000% Baunwollf". Priceless!

    I spent every summer of my life in either the U.P. or Puerto Rico. What can I say...I'm a mutt. I've got family in both places. Michigan is one of the last, best places on earth...

    A friend stopped by the Hormel Museum on his way back from South Dakota. (I usually don't stop when driving the same road.) He picked me up a SPAM shirt. That's currently my fave.

    The fave I never bought was a Soul Asylum shirt from the early 1990s. White with big red block. Big red block has a white Coca-Cola swirl and said "Soul Asylum - You Can't Feel The Beating". I still want that shirt.

    I saw a very attractive girl on the beach in Venice, CA with this on her t-shirt:

    IN CASE OF RAPE,
    THIS SIDE UP.

    I have one with an image of George Washington sitting on an old Indian motorcycle. Kind of faded now, but still probably my favorite.

    Of course, there's also the Fender Tele test drive t-shirt from a couple promotions ago...

    My all time favorite was my Keef t-shirt from the x-pensive winos tour. It has long since disintegrated.

    My fave now is a plain black tee with a big red Fender logo and the words "fine electric instruments since 1946" It is also beginning to disintegrate and I can't seem to find another. :cry:
