I love schwag. Who doesn’t? Tee-shirts especially. So I’ve been looking around for a good supplier of shirts and working on a spiffy design. I wanted to make a shirt people would actually want to wear, otherwise why go through the effort and expense? What I finally came up with is pictured over there on the right. Click on it to enlarge it and see other pictures.
You can get one for free by emailing me using the form at the end of this post.
Best of all, if you send me a picture of yourself wearing the shirt out and about, hopefully having a great time, I’ll add you to our review samples mailing list and you’ll get a free bottle of Capozzi Pinot Noir sent to you for review when our inaugural vintage is released (a couple conditions apply).
Just like everything we strive to do at Capozzi, the shirt is high quality and, perhaps just as importantly, it has an interesting story. This is not just your standard Cafe Press rag with a crappy silk screen. Our shirt is one of the softest, smoothest, best-looking organic cotton T-shirts available. I sense you doubting me. You shouldn’t. Here are some details:
All of which = excellent tee shirt. No company or man is perfect however, and there is a dark side to AA. Dov seems to have a thing with sleeping with his staffers, and this has lead to a number of sexual harassment lawsuits. Two suits were dropped but a third is still pending.
If Dov were found guilty of harassment I’d think twice about dealing with AA, but right now they are just allegations. Benefit of the doubt and all that. It might help though, and I’m just spit-balling here, if he didn’t hold company meetings in his underwear (see picture). A quote from the Inc. article pretty much says it all:
…the 36-year-old proprietor of one of the hottest brands in fashion bears a strong resemblance to a young Gabe Kotter with a whiff of Vincent Gallo. He is also commonly said to look like a 1970s pornographer, and that is the sort of comparison that makes him very, very happy.
And there we are.
Good product, good quality. Good taste? Debatable. Good story? Uncontestable.
As I mentioned, if you take a photo of yourself out having a good time in the shirt and send it back to me, I’ll not only post your pic on the blog and write about you, I’ll also send you a bottle of our Pinot Noir upon release for you to review. There are three conditions:
UPDATE: We’re all sold out! Thanks for the great response!
