My Hood Clothing is a new t-shirt company, and the Shirt Snob has been lucky enough to obtain a tee from them. It isn't often that we get excited about a company like this one, so we are happy to share them with you.
First up a little background. The concept is simple - we all are proud of where we came from, and we love to represent that! We may move around the country, go to school in a different state than we grew up, but we never forget where we came from and want others to know that. Also, we may be proud of where we are living now and want to show that pride. My Hood Clothing captures that pride you feel and made a company around it. Each tee is made to order with the town and state you want to represent.
Now on to the shirt they sent me! There are 20 designs to choose from (both available for men and women), and we decided on the State Tee. The website was easy to use. Once choosing the design, I picked out my size and state from drop boxes and then wrote in the town I wanted. Each tee is preshrunk 100% cotton 30 single combed ring-spun 4.2 oz. t-shirt. The graphic is perfect. Right on center, not a flaw anywhere. It is a high quality tee with good stitching throughout. It is comfortable and soft as well. Fit is obviously the most important part, and it fits great. It's a slim fit, and the medium we ordered comes to just below the Shirt Snob's hips. The graphic is placed at the bust to mid stomach where it looks most appropriate. It may run a bit on the small side, so when in doubt order one size up.
It was shipped quickly and well packaged. It arrived on my doorstep only a few days after ordering, so they company seems efficient and well oiled. They know what they are doing. Ordering from the website was easy too. Everything was easy to figure out, so I didn't need to do much thinking outside of choosing the design I wanted.
In conclusion, we are very impressed with My Hood Clothing and will be purchasing from them in the future. We highly recommend them to all our readers.
