American Apothecary is a t-shirt company that features vintage drug labels that are no longer in existance because they are unsafe (such as heroin), so they are a little different than your typical tees. The goal of the two two former assistant district attorneys who started this company is to make a statement about how our perceptions of these substances has changed. According to their website,
they hope to expand the public's knowledge of our dubious pharmacological past and encourage people to consider what the future opinion of today's widely prescribed drugs will be.
We like how the designs look on tees. Their prices are a bit high for a t-shirt, but at least tax and shipping are included in the price and 10% of all proceeds go to Drug Outreach Programs. They have tees for both men and women.
The Pegasus Top by Ella Moss can be worn with a number of different bottoms for casual or slightly more dressy occasions. It has unfinished rosettes and ruching at the scoop neck and short raglan sleeves.
