“I bought this shirt in Maui in 1980 and wear it to this day.” That’s a typical comment Crazy Shirts’ ambassadors hear on a regular basis in their stores. As President Scott Maroney recently told us, “We’re proudly the luxury t-shirt brand. We have so many customers who tell us they’ve been collecting shirts for over 30 years. We even know of two loyal fans who made quilts out of all their shirts.”
Before you buy bargain t-shirts that won’t last, picture how nice it will be to put on a world-class quality t-shirt for the next couple of decades; how good it (and you!) look and feel and the great memories it brings back every time you put it on.
