Well, to tell you the truth – I don’t really dig that whole “bro” walk & talk, but nevertheless I think it’s a cool business idea. At least with relatively new, but still profiled company called StatusBro. I say “company” instead of “tee label” because people at StatusBro.com not only print and carry T-shirts, but do offer koozies, stickers and other fun stuff. Now I was politely offered to review one of their tees and upon browsing their site I picked up the one called Sharks!
A week or two later the shirt arrived and surprised me pleasently with it’s appearance. As you can see, the design with sharks flock is three-colored (three shades of blue) and printed on black shirt it looks very strong and eye-catching. I immediately touched the print with my fingers and it appeared to be kind of rubber-ish, almost like a rubber stamp, which is cool and adds to originality of the shirt itself.
Upon trying the shirt on it felt soft and very comfotable, but not being too thin at the sime time. It’s a pre-shrunk 100 % cotton shirt which fits nicely (at least I think so), but if you prefer an extra comfort you might wanna order it in one size bigger. For example – I normally wear M size and this shirt fits me very tight, which can be a problem if you’re having that little extra weight like me 🙂 However, this shirt isn’t one of those tight shirts which are choking your body when worn.
Back to the design – I must admit I really respect sharks as mightiest predators in seas & oceans and wouldn’t wanna meet one “nose to nose” (I hear they’re circling around Adriatic sea often these days), but I don’t think I’m “the predator” in my group of friends like this design suggests (neither am I the sealife scientist). However, I can prove you this shirt grabs attention as shark’s jaws, based on reactions by some of my friends, who wanted to know where did I get it.
Now, although this promo shirt don’t have an original StatusBro neck label, it still has very cool StatusBro logo printed on the back, just below the neck, which is always cool (like I always say – I really like those kind of details on shirts). The print is also rubber-ish (note: not rubbish!), just like the one on the front of the shirt.
All in all – this shirt is eye-catching, comfortable and original piece of cloth, and is also value for money (it can be yours for $20 through StatusBro online shop). Even if you wear it along with your trousers / skirt, or beneath a jacket or something, it is guaranteed to invoke a reaction, and today it is most important to be original and unique, right? Also, the good news is StatusBro is now having a promotion for one of their shirts (Don’t break the seal for $10), plus if you send them your picture wearing one of their shirts you get a free sticker and a koozie pack. Now, what’s your status, bro?
