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.

My wife’s been complaining that I don’t look “handsome” anymore. I thought to myself what can I do to rekindle the flame. I gained a couple hundred pounds since we’ve been together. Maybe that’s why she’s not happy, but I’m not sure. I’m an artist and I’ve been thinking about starting a business where you can Design your own sweatshirt. I’m a big guy so I thought I’d call it Samoan sweatshirts.
Basically, I wanted to give other big guys a confidence boost. I thought about making it an online business to attract new customers. I thought about using my wife’s money because it’s a safer investment. You don’t expect me to use my own money God forbid. Honestly, my wife really got under my skin with her comments, and it really made me think.
If this business takes off she’ll want me again. That’s when I’ll divorce her for a young model. I’m just joking, I love my wife, like I love a bullet in the head. I have a hard time shopping for clothes, and I can’t ever find anything in my size. Listen to me, I sound like a woman, but it’s true.
My idea of a good shirt is anything that can cover my big gut. If I turn to the side people say I resemble a lower case “b.” I really hope this business takes off because it’s the only thing I have left. Oh, here comes my wife, I have to pretend that I’m happily married.

Every morning I run out the door to the gym I throw on a hoodie. They keep me warm, cover up those love handles, and make my work out clothes a little more “run out the door” worthy.
We are German and I wanted to find something to celebrate my heritage. Then it came to me, I can make German hoodies for my family to celebrate our heritage, while running to the gym with my own individual flair.
The idea to make your own hoodies is nothing new. You simply find or create a logo or family crest and have it added to your choice of hoodie color and style.
No one wants to be that girl at the gym with the same outfit everyone else has. You need to be an original and stand out when you are working towards your fitness goals.
The clothing you wear to work out definitely helps or hinders your performance. When you go to the gym, the PTA meeting, heck the carwash, and you have a one of a kind hoodie on that people can’t help but notice you will feel good about yourself. You will perform better ten times better then if you just walk out the door in your usual raggedy sweatshirt and yoga pants.
When I designed my German hoodie I was a little hesitant, I had never designed anything before, but the process was easier then I could have ever imagined. From start to finish I love the fact that I created a piece of clothing that has given me an added boost of self confidence to whatever the day brings.
