Official* Unveiling of the MGoShirts, Fall 2012 Edition
ANN ARBOR-- The fashion world is abuzz with enthusiasm after images of the 2012 Fall MGoShirt line were leaked last night. Less than twenty four hours after MGoBlog member and reported WikiLeaks contributor JeepinBen* published the images, UGP and designer Six Zero are proud to unveil the offerings with this official press release.
Without further ado, then, please welcome the MGoShirt 2012 Fall Collection (To get a closer look, or to order a shirt, please click on the corresponding image):
A bold and stylish ode to culinary delight, this tee celebrates the hunger we all feel as the season draws nearer... and the feast we shall all enjoy starting September 1st. Available in S-3XL.
The Flow, Brunettes, and more after THE JUMP!
GO WITH THE FLOW
Fashion, of course, goes hand in hand with Flow. This bold thomage of follicular glory is certainly business in the front and party in the back. Available in S-3XL.
This year the MGoStore caters exclusively to Ann Arbor's finest raven-haired ladies with this clever nod to brunettes. But if blondes have more fun, they're welcome to don this tee as well. And if redheads break all the rules, I'm sure we won't be able to stop them either. Available in American Apparel Ladies Tri-Blend S-XL.
The Twosie. Indubitably there cannot be grander sport than frolicking down the cobblestoned thoroughfares of dear Ann Arbor on a tandem bicycle with your fondest mate, right? This tee's style was designed to mimic 60's counter-culture posters and tour shirts. Available in S-3XL.
Visual proof that words don't have to be real to be the truth. This shirt is a tribute to over a century of excellence and the passionate defense of that noble title. Available in S-3XL.
All shirts are available in the MGoStore starting today!!!
Gear up for Season 133 and GO BLUE!!!

Six Zero here.... Obviously this year's line focuses more on quality than quantity, but that's not for a lack of effort. Every year we produce many designs, and only the strongest and most marketable creations are what end up on the racks, in your hands, and in the stands year after year.
With that being said, we have a few alternate designs that ended up 'on the fence.' We're not sure if they work or if they'd sell, and so we thought it might be fun to let you, the MGoBlog community, decide for yourselves. Some admittedly land higher on the fence than others, but I and UGP would love to hear your feedback, and if there's one or more that YOU JUST NEED TO SEE put in the store, SPEAK UP and that's what'll happen. Make us make them!!
So without further ado, here's some of the runners-up of the 2012 MGoShirt Line:
WHEN YOU'RE ON
You know, the song and all. It still seems to be a rallying cry around these parts and beyond. Plus shirts with profanity, even the simulated kind, are cool in a dangerous kinda way.
Meh. Tried to hard to make an idea work, I think. My take is that if you have to explain to someone what your shirt would mean, you probably won't buy it. Or you're just weird and you like it that way.
MAKE THE WORLD
You know, if the UM alumni, student body, fan base and a certain quarterback went back in time to the Napoleonic era, I'm pretty sure we could take on England. And win.
I.... there's nothing really more to say, is there?
and finally, the Upton concept.
We thought we'd try to tackle the phenomenon of, well, 'Upton,' and why her choice in college football teams makes our college football team better. They're kinda weird, and probably a little too tasteless for my taste, but it was fun designing them. Yes, especially the last one. What do you guys think? Would you buy 'em?
UPTON VER. 1
Simply stated, one of the things our fan base has going for it.
UPTON VER. 2
This is for you, tasteless frat boy crowd!!! Huh huh, huh huh
UPTON VER. 3
Look closely. There's a word in there.
So at the very least there's an inside look at some of the other designs that did not make the final cut. And if you think some of these are less tradtitional, rest assured this barely touches the iceberg in comparison some of the designs that have failed in years past (I'm looking at you, TPryor Voodoo Doll!)
By all means I invite any and all criticism (here's looking at you, my old friend who down-votes every single post I have ever created and I know always will) and any other suggestions or commentary you'd like to contribute to the cause. All of the final shirts should be available for sale by the time I post this article, as are several other proud offerings of the MGoStore!!
I'm willing to give you all a pass for the first week, but let's see these in the crowd by the Air Force game before the commercial breaks!!
