Wear what you read

In light of the earth-shattering news this week that J. Crew will now ship to the UK (what? You didn’t get the memo?), I wanted to share these kids’ litera-tees available at JCrew.com.

Now your child (or one you know) can wear a British classic like Sherlock Holmes or Treasure Island. Their shirt will be like an open book.

Even better, for every tee shirt sold, they will donate a book to a community in need. It’s part of the mission of Out of Print Clothing, the awesome company that produces the book shirts.

Wear what you read. It’s a great concept! If you could put your favorite book title on a shirt, what would yours be?

I’m pretty sure I’d get a Great Gatsby tee. Or The World According to Garp tee. Well, actually, maybe something by Ray Bradbury or Kurt Vonnegut. Hmm … I might have enough favorites here to create a wardrobe.

  1. BEAUTIFUL! As a librarian, this is right up my alley. However, the link timed out on me. Never fear, Amazon is here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_sr_apparel?_encoding=UTF8&node=1036592&field-brandtextbin=Out%20of%20Print%20Clothing

    Thanks Trisha!

  2. OK – all links work for me now. My bandwidth was trying to simulate the water pressure of a British shower. Have they fixed that yet over there? It was like showering in a light rain.

    • Glad the links are working now! I can’t speak for all showers but can report that my MIL has a fantastic shower w/ excellent water pressure! šŸ™‚ I actually find that most Brits I know appreciate the importance of good water pressure!
