T-Shirts For Sale... Finally.

*If you´re reading this it means that I set this post up correctly to appear automatically. We're still sailing and hopefully by now, clear of the Galapagos Island and well on our way to the Marquesas. The Internet is a wonderful thing.

Shirt - Close UpINTERNATIONAL WATERS - Since the inception of this site, there have been requests for me to make T-Shirts available for sale. I'd considered it before but realized quickly that I wouldn´t be able to manage selling t-shirts from dingy little 3rd world Internet cafes along the way. Postcards are difficult enough. Still, I kept the idea stored in the recesses of my mind as something I'd do one day; I'd even gone as far as putting up a dead link on the horizontal navigation bar called 'shop' with the idea that I´d get around to it sooner or later. Of course, anybody who's ever clicked that link would have found nothing on the other end... until now.

With the help of my old roommate, Jon we can now sell T-Shirts. He´s done the leg work along the way and will take care of anybody wanting a t-shirt.

We've decided to go for quality over quantity. At the price of $30 CDN per shirt, I can't even afford one. The reason for the price is simply a function of the cost to us. We've committed to using only the highest quality shirts along with tough, well done custom-cut fuzzy iron-on lettering. The logo won't wash off and the actual shirt should be good for at least a couple trips around the world. All our shirts are made by American Apparel, a clothing manufacturer notable for it's insistence on being sweatshop free.

If you´d like more detail or to actually buy a Shirt for yourself click the 'Shop' button on the menu.

What is the inspiration behind your shirts? What country do you ship the shirts from?

The shirts are inspired by theroadislife "brand" that Ryan has created, promoted and maintained through this site.

The shirts are shipped from Toronto, ON Canada. Local pick-up is available.

More of a hypothetical question.

If Jon starts sweating while working on these shirts does that constitute sweat shop labour?
