My need for new t-shirts sent me shopping online. I could just run down to the local mall and grab a couple of tops at Gottschalks but the problem with that is I like my tees to be offensive, shocking and brazen and you can’t find that at the mall.
One online retailer suggested by the googlenator that struck my fancy was Foul Mouth T-shirts. They have enough crazy shirts to keep me merrily amused for hours. Foul Mouth T-shirts are ideal for people with an irresistible urge to show the world what they’re thinking; regardless of social protocol.
The Foul Mouth website is a tad bit chaotic. Can’t fault them for that though since the demographic the site aims at is one that slams Monster Energy Drinks for breakfast and sips lattes in the evening. I doubt there are very many old folks – ladies and gentlemen alike – roaming the halls of assisted living facilities with their walkers-on-wheels and wearing “I don’t smoke crack… I lick it” t-shirts.
On the other hand, one of my favorite parts of the Foul Mouth website is the religious t-shirts page. The first time I loaded the page background audio started playing. At first I was going to shut if off but then I heard what the audio was. The audio was a telephone call in which a religious lady phones in to complain about the obscene nature of the website and how offended she is. I won’t give away the details of the call, you should hear it for yourself. Hilarious!
Foul Mouth T-shirts’ foul factor is pretty high. They aren’t the foulest I’ve ever seen but they do rank right up there in obscenity. The foul mouth’s at Foul Mouth have tackled just about every conceivable offensive topic. Well the good offensive topics anyway. Topics like religion and sex. There’s no two better topics to offend people with in this writer’s opinion. So I placed an order.
As for the t-shirts themselves…
Offensive shirts like Foul Mouth tees have a duty to have sex appeal. With words like “I’m Surrounded by F**King Idiots” blazoned across my chest the shirt better fit pretty damned good and look mighty sexy. My expectations were high when I ripped my new Foul Mouth t-shirt from the mailing package.
I wish I could say that my expectations were met 100% but I would be lying. I was a tad bit disappointed when I pulled the shirt out of the packaging and saw that the shape didn’t resemble the baby doll t-shirt style I’m so accustomed to.
I went ahead and put the shirt on. My disappointment lessened a tad bit. The shirt is lightweight and comfortable. It didn’t fit as snug as I’d like it to but I didn’t feel restricted or confined. If there’s one suggestion I’d like to give to the guys at Foul Mouth it would be to find a better shape of shirt, at least for the baby doll style.
The words on the shirt seem to be too far over on the right side of my chest making it difficult to read. I would have liked to see the words more centered and a little bit bigger but I suppose I can live with it.
I’m not in love with my new shirt but I am happy with it. After three days of wearing I realized I should probably wash my new t-shirt. I hate that. Washing causes t-shirts to fade, shrink a bit and stretch out in weird places so it loses its original shape. I hope to someday find a t-shirt immune to wear and tear but that’s an article for a different day.
I washed my Foul Mouth t-shirt. A couple of times. How reliable would this review be if I only washed my shirt once? So far I’ve washed my shirt about 4 times one right after another and it’s in good shape. No fading, shrinking or stretching.
I will be buying from Foul Mouth again and hopefully the shape of the shirt was a fluke and the next one I buy will be better. The Foul Mouth guys are worthy of patronage by those with guts to say what’s on their mind so if you have something you’d like the world to know give Foul Mouth a try.
