Review: Retro Campaigns

retrocampaignstevenson.jpg

The Shirt Snob is the lucky recipient of another tee to review, this time from Retro Campaigns. We'd never heard of this t-shirt company before, which is a shame because we really like what we see. Their shirts show unique characters from American politics of the past. They don't go too far back, but if you're in your 20s like we are, you may not know who Adlai Stevenson or George McGovern are. Therefore, you look cool and knowledgeable in their shirts! Considering that this is an election year and politics is in the news, we think this is a good time to buy from this company.

We were sent the Hole in the Shoe tee in a girly medium. Right off the bat we like this tee. It's a ringer tee, which is really enough to win us over immediately. But it's cute and looks comfy, and we think the saying is funny. Here's how it came about, thanks to the Retro Campaigns website:

During his 1952 campaign, a news photographer captured a picture of Stevenson with a large hole in his shoe. “Better a hole in the shoe than a hole in the head!” he remarked. This now iconic political image became a campaign symbol, representing his down-to-earth character and frugality.

Our tee is quite comfortable and soft. It's made well, the graphics are aligned correctly and silk screened well. The tee is American Apparel and seems to be a medium heaviness, good for all weather! It's also a good length, coming to the middle of our hips. It held up great in the wash too!

Customer service seemed great! Our tee arrived promptly, and they were quite pleasant although we didn't have much communication with them. We are quite pleased with our tee and are sure we will get a ton of use out of it. We also are big fans of this site and will be buying a lot from them for presents for all our political minded family and friends in the future!
