That Barwis Gym shirt is the fuckin' bees knees!
Mike Lantry, 1972
For a long period in which the MGoStore laid fallow because the previous company stopped existing in all ways except accepting orders. This did not go well for people who ordered or my inbox. So I searched about for another company that would not do this to the readership again. I have found one: Underground Printing, an Ann Arbor company you're probably familiar with if you've ever gotten a student t-shirt at Yost with your season tickets. They will not disappear; they will make sweet shirts.
So. There is a store:
As always, you are directed to consume for the good of the nation.
Also! I'm pleased to announce that MGoBlog reader and extremely talented person Six Zero is going to be running an MGoShirt contest before the season starts. He's created around a dozen designs that will battle each other for supremacy; the best-loved shirt (and maybe a couple more if more than one that must be had) will go in the store. That starts Monday. Fight for his love.
That Barwis Gym shirt is the fuckin' bees knees!
I'm not sure what shirt to get. In Rod we trust is always classy.
That's hillarious. "Barwis gym...help me out here" Good one dude.
EDIT: Wait, are you asking who Barwis is? Uh-oh. You better sleep with one eye open man.
I've tried to order and it won't hold stuff in my cart and then it won't total after entering all my info.
Help! I need some gear!
What browser are you using? They've been processing some orders already.
if you have any issues you can email email@example.com.
I'm using Internet Explorer 7.
I'll contact them and keep trying.
Sweet shirts! I'll be patient and when I get through I will consume, consume, consume!!!
Do you think the MGoBlogStore could accept PayPal in the future?
Thanks for the recommendation - we will build in a link to pay via Paypal in the next week or so
Bow Down little brother is an awesome shirt. What about the old Woodley ones- "Guns don't kill people, LaMarr Woodley kills people."
I didn't come up with that design, MATW did, so it would be up to them.
is definitely in order for the coming season.
Some other ideas:
-Family Values (perhaps with some version of the famous Alan Branch / Anthony Morelli picture included)
-Unverified Voracity - some sort of MGoBlog plug, i.e. "I don't believe it until I see it on MGoBlog"
If someone could work down that AB/Morelli image into a simple one color image that could come across on a t-shirt, it would be simply amazing. I wish I had that kind of graphic design skill..
but that's an owned image and could potentially become an legal entanglement. Though I will say, I can't wait to show everyone what Brian and I have up our sleeves, hehe
I'm debating on whether I should buy now or wait to see if there are better shirts coming. Hints?
The Branch/Morelli picture would be awesome as well as the Crable/Quinn image, but same legal questions and t-shirt transposition problems.
try to talk them into doing Worst State Ever with a blue background and yellow accent. i've come to find that yellow shirts that are not explicit with their UM affiliation tend to suffer epic fails at "university representation"
Yeah, I was hoping to get one of the blue ones too.
We will definitely introduce "Worst State Ever" in Navy blue in the next week or so. Keep an eye out.
Any chance the "Charlie Weis should probably eat less" shirt comes back?
I also like the idea of something using the phrase "Jabba the Coach".
I also also like the idea of the phrase "The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Forcier." incorporating a picture of a jedi or Darth Vader or something...
A ND fan once thought my "Worst State Ever" t-shirt featured the state of Indiana and was directed at him.
Can anyone tell me the T-Shirt brand for this store? American Apparel, I hope??
Currently the shirt brand is your standard Gildan. Couple of reasons
1) The Daisy color made by Gildan is the best representation of UofM Maize out there. American Apparel has a "Gold" color which is too Dark.
2) American Apparel shirts are nice, but are a tighter fitting shirt which doesnt necessarily work for everyone.
That being said, we will probably be introducing "fitted" versions of shirts for those of you that are interested in American Apparel or higher end shirts.
I had wanted to ask the exact same question but feared folks would think it was a foolish one.
I'll look forward to the AA / some other higher-end t-shirts when the time comes.
Stupid slow computer / browser response.
not to mention in order to wear American Apparel shirts you have to pop your collar while not wearing said shirt.
Thanks for the response. I would definitely look forward to 'fitted' American Apparel shirts. For tall thin frames those AA shirts fit perfectly. Gildan or Hanes T-Shirts make me feel like I'm wearing a bed gown.
Are those how the maize tshirts look or are they a bit darker like the old Bow Down Little Brother shirts from RichRobots?
These Maize shirts are pretty similar to how they look. We aren't big on the "Gold" version that many shirts come in. This is why we use the Gildan brand, its the brand used for a majority of UofM athletic printing.
Anyone have a word on how small these shirts run? The Richrobots' ones were very tight on me. I need to know before i splurge on these epic shirts.
I hope Brian profits from these because they are all the dogs bollocks. Fav: East Lansing, it works on so many levels.
In the FAQ it sounds like you can exchange items. I'm guessing if you get something too big/small you can send it back and get the next size up/down. But you do have to pay the S&H.
They run pretty true to size. They are Gildan brand, so if you go to your closet and check out the t-shirts that are from Gildan, Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, Anvil - this is the type of fit you will get.
If you like the fitted shirt, we will be introducing those in the future as well...
I don’t feel like I’m in good enough shape to wear a Barwis gym shirt. But I will be ordering some of the others
I'm a little disappointed that Barwis Gym is available in sizes other than small... and that it doesn't have at least one wolf. Don't worry, I still bought one (but may add wolves later).
I was really hoping that instead of the skull on the barwis shirt, there'd be a wolf. Sorta like this...
Brian why don't you set up a cafepress.com store?
um... are you for serious? the quality there is not so much.
I didn't know that. Now I do.
I've worked with them a number of times. Although I dealt with the East Lansing store, the service and quality was always excellent. In fact, I think the shirts are distributed from Ann Arbor anyway.
I look forward to picking up some shirts.
Does the Bow Down Little Brother shirt still have the scores from 2000-2007 on it?
For obvious reasons: no.
So those were like the John Cooper Day shirts of their era.
I came up with this when I was really high 2 years ago and it sold quite well, "We are going to nut in your Buckeyes" I still get laughs from old people surprisingly. If there was like a cartoon Buckeye crying on the floor on the back would be perfect.
I can't find the place to enter the code number so I will get my MGoSeasonTicket discount.
Does anyone have a picture of the "HAIL" shirt? I'd like to see what it truly looks like (front/back).
player's from there? I would vote for something else that is more creative and targets the true intended entity.
I would imagine that first of all that they'd understand the intent of the shirt. And secondly, I'm sure they'd be glad to have left. Ohio is an awful state and if they had any "home state" loyalty, they would have gone to the-university-that-must-not-be-named.
Any plans for a tacopants shirt?
I would buy this shirt, and it could be exactly like jersey Tacopants wore in the banner contest. If I remember correctly, his number was a bullseye with Tacopants for the nameplate.
a taco pants shirt would only come in a skinny xxxxxxl so as to truly capture the legend properly
I heard Taco pants transferred to ASU to play with Threet again.
