Dress Yourself Bloggy

"The band t-shirt has been a staple of our casual wardrobe for a while—really, ever since that one Deerhoof show—but that’s because rock stars are cool. Bloggers, not so much. But as in many things, Andrew Sullivan is the exception. The combination of an awesome beard and a balanced understanding of new media make him the closest our tribe has to a rock star, so he’s teamed up with the nautical experts (and Provincetown residents) at Rogues Gallery for a trio of screenprinted tees."
Andrew Sullivan has a t-shirt? Why don't we have a t-shirt? Oh, right, because it would probably look like this. Carry on.

Never point an awl in that direction.

That's not what it would look like.

@HeyThatsMyBike Isn't the unofficial motto of The Awl "We shave… down there!"?

@Cho: I actually would buy this shirt.

"restraining order-ish readers"? I'm hurt. [I would like a t-shirt, though]

prrtyfood (#8,285)

is it sad that I would buy/wear one?

demograph (#3,589)

Sullivan is a horrible person and wearing his shirt would be worse than wearing a Doors shirt, which is pretty awful.

BadUncle (#153)

I'd hazard a guess that there are more than a few Awlistes with skills to design a good Awl t-shirt faster than it will take you to drink an old fashioned, Balk.

And fifteen more to deride the font choice by the time you've mixed your second one.

I would buy an Awl brand leather-poking implement.

MattP (#475)

Me too! But mostly because I need a new hole on the belt that's now too small for me…

HiredGoons (#603)

I would buy a shirt with Louis Braille on it.

Wasn't Trotsky murdered with an awl? That'd be a nice Che vibe for the kids.

Icepick? Which, call me, Awl Network! I want to run your future book publishing-covering pageview-evading site of same name.

Shouldn't that be a picture of a sneaker?

Art Yucko (#1,321)

as long as it's the Most Ethical(TM).

dntsqzthchrmn (#2,893)

I think Kois came up with the AWL CAPS idea.

jolie (#16)

We had shirts for the orginal Gawker Commenters' Ball… how have we not made Awl shirts yet? I'm disappointed in us, usually we're so much more obsessive and weird!

What we really need are Steve Martiny Awl-through-the-head hats.

I'm in as long as proceeds don't go to a Hungarian profit center.

garge (#736)

I have a vision of an Awl tea cosy shaped like a bear, with an awl on its stomach, like a care bear? I may have a fever?

jolie (#16)

@garge: MAKE THIS HAPPEN PLEASE. (And I would like that graphic on an apron, if anyone has the time.)

Wait, what?!?!? There were t-shirts?

jolie (#16)

@Clarence: There were! I think Hippity made them on cafepress? I still have mine!

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

@jolie: Are we talking about an apron with a graphic of an awl, or an apron with a graphic of a bear-shaped, awl-bestomached tea cozy? I'm not making a judgment on which option is cooler.

@jolie: Link please!

MollyculeTheory (#4,519)

What about a bear suit onesie with a graphic of an awl on the stomach? (I know what I'm wearing to the Bawl!)

jolie (#16)

@Clarence: I cannot, in good conscience, give you a link to purchase Gawkerwear.

cherrispryte (#444)

Somebody get deepo on this graphic, stat.

WindowSeat (#180)

Needs a cat

bshep (#746)

How about T-shirts individualized with our commenter number? With one of our randomly selected comments on the back? That would be fun!

Only if your t-shirt has this comment on it.

dntsqzthchrmn (#2,893)

It's a little too Foursquare, but YESSSS to this idea.

cherrispryte (#444)

In the continuing back-burner conversation of PLEASE LET US GIVE YOU MONEY, T-shirts are a good idea. Something trendier/weirder would be better, but seriously, people pay for merch. Get merch! Weird merch. Like a fucking awl charm bracelet.

God, the children are running the monkey-ship. (My hometown zoo had a huge pirate ship that was full of monkeys and tropical birds!)

ANYWAY, men and women over the age of 30 should never ever wear clothing with visible logos, pictures or words (unless they are embroidered). Ask a faggot about fashion!

We all have to repaint the bedroom/strip the old furniture/clean the crimescene in something.

dntsqzthchrmn (#2,893)

I realize this is supposed to protect us from seeking a mid-life crisis exemption, but, Bloomberg's third term etc etc.

BoHan (#29)

Uhhh, something something "Collective Enthusiasm". Apologies to Mr. Barthel.

keisertroll (#1,117)

Why did you have to tease me with the prospect of an Awl shirt? I'd gladly give my last twenty bucks for such an item.
