I work hard, and I play hard; so does my everyone in my office. So when we made our quarterly quota, we decided to have an “we-made-quota” blowout. Reward ourselves for a job well done. It needed to be special. After consulting and counting votes, we came to the conclusion that the best way to say, “We got ’er done!” was an official office t-shirt to wear to the big celebratory event — the demolition derby! Yeah, after selling, supporting, and crunching numbers, we thought it’d be fun to see the big, bad trucks crush each other! Symbolic, you might say. Poetic. “Post-modern ironic,” said Lee. (Lee’s in sales.) Afterwards, the gang was going out for pizza and brews, and we need to look good.
We wanted to look as sharp as we deserved to look; present a united front. Paulo (manager) suggested a sartorial solution; he laid out his plan — we were going to Design your own t-shirt.
We found the perfect shade of green. (Which we knew for a fact made each and every one of us looked fabulous.) There was a size for everyone, from Emily who wears a small, to Pete who takes an XXXXL, so everyone was stylin’ and looking fine. We were going to have our eighteen members present a tight unit of fun. That green had the added advantage that it was an eye-catching color, a money color,
Then we made it our own. Really…. We put the name of our company on the back, with the social event — the demolition derby! Yes! — on the front, and had our own big, bad, bodacious demolition derby shirts — special and hot — just like us.
Oh, hey, and did I mention we made…no, we exceeded — our quarterly quota? Just checking.

I wasn’t born a Compton, but I became one at the ripe old age of 22, when I married my college sweetheart. Our 30th Wedding anniversary is right around the corner, and I want to surprise my favorite guy with matching sweatshirts, but don’t want them to be boring! So I got to thinking about Custom sweatshirts! Yeah! That’s the ticket!!
I thought of doing something simple – maybe just our name on the left breast or emblazoned across the back. Then I decided that maybe a different Compton sweatshirt for each of us would be perfection. So I started shopping around, looking for that perfect combination for my husband and I. I found “I Love Compton” shirts, “Kiss me, I’m a Compton” shirts, even “Compton’s Do It Better” shirts. But my favorite combination ended up being the “Mrs. Compton” and “Mr. Compton” sweatshirts that let everyone know just who we are when we wear them out to dinner!
I love being a Compton, it is a good name, and I married a good man. I love to surprise him with little gifts from time to time, that let him know just how proud of him I am and how proud I am to be his wife. I love my Mr. Compton!
If you are in the market for sweatshirts, t-shirts or any other customized item Idakoos is the place to shop. From countries, states and places, to dogs and cats, last names and names by gender, you cannot go wrong. There is something for everyone!

We’ve all seen Customized Hoodies for sports teams or leagues, but we are now starting to see them being worn as statements of difference to the norm. No more are those adorned in a hooded sweatshirt to be mistaken again for a suspected terrorist, whom has no customization visible on his police sketch. These hoodies are identifying those that wear them as a cut from a different cloth, one that is weaved in its own directions. One of the most popular versions being seen is the rottweiler hoodie design with certain captions or phrases sometimes placed underneath.
Just by wearing the design on the hoodie, it is a visual statement of separation from what is generally considered to be acceptance of a slave system to which all have been born into. Starting in the suburbs of Maine and ending up on the shores of Jacksonville beach, Fl, this unknown crew of cyber misfits were gathering in number and planning their attack on the fashion world. With the simplicity of the black hoodie design, their message could be worn by just about any person on the planet. This is not the case of dresses, which would isolate at least half of the population, excluding cross gender enthusiasts.
Here soon, there will be a mob of black hoodie army members taking the streets and reclaiming them as their own. Anyone with a bit of fashion sense has already caught onto this trend, but may not have seen it put into practice just yet. Before you know it, the in-crowd kids, now turned adults, will be right behind you in one of these black hoodie garments with a design that slaps you in the face with a sense of originality and simplicity that hasn’t been seen since the days of high top fades and adidas.
