NOW SHIPPING: The DDC-036 “Chest Pocket Torso Cover!”

These beasts have been sitting quietly for some time. And today, we’re offering them up to you, the reader of this “brog.”

We’ve been inundated with requests and queries along the lines of “c’mon, make some new shirts, man” and “when’s some new stuff coming?” and that got us thinking. We’ve always got shit on deck, but this time, we thought we’d step things up a notch!

This time around, we’re offering a specially-designed torso pocket that houses yer latest Field Notes memo book and a pen or pencil, or maybe a wad of cash, or an iPhone apparatus? Or all of the above? Yeah, all of the above. This is how we roll, and we thought we’d make the same kind of torso cover for our friends and readers.

And, as you can see above, each shirt ordered comes with one Field Notes memo book, and one DDC “Adventures in Plastic” clic pen. Equipped, right out of the goddamn box. Like we’d have it any other way!

Oh yeah, these will be shipping out the first thing Tuesday morning. Our word on that one!

The time is now, people! These are going to go fast, so get it going! Click here, and make this July one to remember.

A LOOK INSIDE THE PRINTING PROCESS OF THESE BASTARDS: This run was printed in a basement in the Midwest! By the good people of Custom Color Screen Printing, Minneapolis, Minn. Thanks, guys. Much appreciated. Nice doing business with you.

THE BACK OF THIS SHIRT WAS INSPIRED BY THIS LINK: “Look for the Union Label: A Celebration of Union Logos and Emblems.” Just about the best link we’ve ever been lucky to click on. A Daywrecker. A Weekwrecker.

AS ALWAYS: Thanks to every single one of you who have bought a piece of DDC merch in the past. It’s been fun as hell shipping stuff out each week to points all over the globe. We do our best to keep the prices as low as we can, you know, covering the shipping costs in the states and Canada. No big whup.

Thank you. Means the world to me to be able to do this stuff. It just takes one email from some scrub writing in saying, “Check me out kicking the shit out of this junk shop or wilderness area in my so-and-so DDC torso cover!” Or whatever the case. Makes me real proud. Thanks, guys.

This is killer. The pocket-tee needed to come back to the surface. It was only a matter of time before it fell into the right hands to do it justice. Good stuff.

Why not a both colors for $40 bones deal or some shit for folks who want both? I bought the black but that “Minnesota Twins navy” and “City of Lakes Police uniforms” baby blue is calling to me as well. Love em.
