I was pleasantly surprised by the packaging and details that “The Circus” provided with their t-shirt. I felt as if I just hit the concession’s stand and was ready for the big show. The t-shirt was accompanied by their business cards, dressed to look like show tickets, logo stickers and funky little button/pins. Apart from popcorn grease marks and the smell of food, they took some care into working out the details of their circus theme.As soon as unfolded the “California Men” t-shirt, I immediately knew the manufacturer was Alternative Apparel. Being the owner of this particular type of t-shirt, I can tell you that they last for quite some time. My best guess is that I have washed my t shirt at least two dozen times and it’s quality has not diminished.
“The Circus” brand is based out of Pasadena, California hence their “circusified” version of the California State flag for this graphic. There is more information on an initial post which Andy put up.
Apart from the use of a white t-shirt which tends to be a taboo choice for indie t-shirt companies, the printing quality is good and they used three colors which is a sign that they spent some money to produce these t-shirts. I would assume that the printing is plastisol ink which has a good shelf life.
Overall, you cannot go wrong with their t shirt and print quality and the price is right for all the effort and care that went into their production. Now I have a hankering for some popcorn and a show.
