Bad Ass Shirts For The Holidays!

Published 8 months ago in Apparel , China , Hack , Uncategorized - 0 Comments

It's That Time of Year!

The Tech Fugitives only wear cool shirts (this is actually a new thing for Mark).  Because we care about you and want you to be cool as well, we've created branded shirts for you to purchase for yourself, friends and family!  Christmas is here and to create some cheer, let you're support show and allow the coolness to flow (sorry, I'm listening to rap right now).

Option 1 - Show Love

This is our classic Tech Fugitives Logo.  Simple, clean, and maximum swagger.  This uses custom thread synthesized by squeezing swag out of some of the coolest people in the world!  It's a complicated process that's too hard to explain.

Option 2 - Take a Stance!

Our listeners know that we're not a fan of China stealing IP and that we like video games, so we created this as an homage to the awesomeness that is the famous Zero Wing meme mashed up with Xi Jinping playing the bad guy CATS.
