Headlines T-Shirt Review

Mike looks really unhappy, doesn't he? He had his surgery and this shirt came in after he got home so he was in no mood to try any shirt on so I told him it was okay to just hold it up for me! He had neck surgery and is not allowed to bend or twist his head for 2 weeks so we decided to play it safe on this one.

I have decided since I get so much stuff that is for women that anytime I can get something for him to try, I will not get it for myself and that is why he is getting all the t-shirts. I figure it is really fair to say the least. Besides, he loves t-shirts way more than I do. In the summer that is about all you will see him wear unless we are going out to eat, then he will put on a nice polo shirt.

So, he is my t-shirt expert and this time I thought I would get something funny for him to wear plus it was also a message to cheer him up because of the surgery. In case you can't tell, the shirt says "Hang In There", which is something he really seriously needs to do! This nice shirt came from Headline Shirts.

Isn't that the cutest shirt? Green is a good color for Mike, too. Seriously, Headline Shirts has so many to choose from it took me awhile to go thru them all and I kept changing my mind but finally saw this one and it just clicked for me.

What can I say? I go with gut feelings and this one paid off. At least he did smile some when I first gave it to him.

I just looked over Headline's site and noticed they are having FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE FOR A LIMITED TIME, so if you want to get some funny shirts for someone in your life, now is the time to do it.

Headline Shirts also wanted me to let you know if you go to their Facebook and sign up for their newsletter you will get $5.00 of your order.

So if you think you might want to get a few t-shirts now would be a good time with the Free Shipping and/or the $5 off!

I also noticed while I was there that they now have belts and wallets with funny logos and sayings! Who would have ever thought that you could get a wallet or belt that might match your t-shirt! Headline Shirts also ships worldwide so go for it if you live outside the U.S.! It looks like from what I can tell they only have mens & womens sizes right now.

Also, the sizes range from small to 3X so you should be able to find something in your size without any problems. Hopefully, in the future they can add some shirts for children. I only say that because I know my grandson would have liked them, too!

Mike says the shirt is comfortable and he has worn it several times which means we washed it all those times also! I told him if he did not stop abusing the shirt it would shrink and sure enough he had to show off! He now hangs it up on a hanger and lets it dry naturally so that there is less chance of it shrinking. Far as I can tell, it is doing pretty good.

And that is saying alot because Mike feels like he has to change clothes every day!! Which means I have loads of laundry to do all the time. But I am very careful with t-shirts and hang them all up to dry instead of going in the dryers.

As for the quality here is what I learned on their site:
Our latest designs are released on our very own, made in San Francisco, 60/40 extra soft cotton/poly VintageBlend™ t-shirts. Our older men’s designs are printed on 100% combed, American ringspun cotton. The cut between the two types of men’s shirts are the same regular fit, meaning not too loose and not "body hugging" slim. The only difference between these two types of tees is that our VintageBlend™ is a bit thinner than your average 100% cotton tee. We print with soft, eco-friendly waterbased and pigment discharge inks, with no PVCs or catalysts. Each shirt is tagless and printed with our "Baboons Typing" tagless neck design. And obviously, we're completely sweatshop free.
Here is an excerpt I found in the About Us page:

Headline Shirts creates funny t-shirts from themes in the news: pop culture, politics, music and of course history (like the 80s!). When something happens in your world, Headline Shirts is on the scene to make a t-shirt about it. We're there so quickly, in fact, that you may even be a little suspicious - wait that's already a t-shirt? Like, did we just happen to be there, or did we know that was going to happen ahead of time? Worse yet, were we somehow responsible? Yikes.

Anyway, you may wonder what type of shirts we specialize in. The answer is, “Precisely.” We make t-shirts that are funny, provocative, cool, hot, liberal, reactionary, libertarian, Whig party, rock ‘n roll, Muzaky, offensive, innocuous, tuxedo-related, vintage, 80s, 90s, and t-shirts that simply don't make any damn sense. So our only “agenda” is making you look and feel good (and maybe help you learn a little something about yourself).

Okay, here is how to shop or research a great shirt from Headlines Shirt:
