Not Your Man\'s Shirt

I have been in the decorated apparel business for about 20 years. It has been interesting to see the changes that have taken place over the years. We mostly did screen printing and embroidery of business apparel and uniforms. But we did a lot of sports uniforms for local schools and county recreation leagues.

One of the things that used to bother me was the absence of women's apparel. There was only men's or "unisex" clothing. It was not until about 2005 or 2006 that we started to see some lady's cut polo shirts, and t-shirts. But even then it was in very limited colors and styles. It was very difficult to get men's and women's matching apparel for a while.

But finally the suppliers started to realize that women did not want to look like they were wearing their "fathers clothes". They also started to to understand that women do the shopping and spending a great deal of the money they were hoping to get a share of.

Surprisingly it has only been in the past two years that finally the NFL and Major League Baseball started to produce licensed apparel in lady's styles. NFL shirts for women were announced with a major advertising campaign last year. These advertisements were somewhat humorous, but we couldn't help but say, It's about time!

So finally you can get an MLB shirt in a lady's style if you want it. You can get both t-shirts and jerseys for women from the NFL shop, but not only there but other retailers like Penny's and Old Navy also have licensed apparel from your team. You can now cheer on your favorite team in style. You don't have to look like one of the boyz to watch football with them.

I live in Virginia so most of the women I know; that like sports are either Washington Redskins women, or Washington Nationals women. What is so great is that you can even get vintage Redskin designs in women's styles today.Yes you can get a shirt that is tailored to flatter your curves, and be in style. Cool designs and sexy styling all in one, isn't it about time?

Right now we have the MLB play offs are upon us, and football season is about to kick off. What a great time to shop for your favorite jersey. Cold weather is just around the corner and you can go out in the cold with out wearing that bulky men's sweatshirt but have something that will turn your man's head. Christmas is coming and you can look great in your team apparel for the holidays. Celebrate that the powers that be, finally got the message and made casual clothing that you can look good in and feel good in.

Now they are even taking it to the next level and creating NFL shirts for girls. so even High School and college age juniors can get licensed apparel for them as well.

Have a great football season and may your team go to the Super Bowl.

I'm one lady who loves big bulky men's tees and sweats, the bigger the better. But I see your point. I've made my living as a decorative printed fabric designer for years, so I appreciate the work you're doing. The best to you. Thanks for the excellent article.
