Is Tee-Fury Introducing Subscription-based T-shirts?

My husband is very fond of a good t-shirt game. I also have a couple of t-shirts I consider to be ‘good ones,’ even though I rarely wear t-shirts (or jeans, honestly). I do still have a favorite t-shirt and it’s this one.

I don’t know why I’m such a sucker for that meme, but the ukiyo-e interpretation of it made me laugh like crazy, and I wanted it on a t-shirt. When Tee Fury offered it, I grabbed one because … I just had to. You’ll notice, however, that it’s a bit worn. It’s not as eye-catching as the original artwork is. Parts of it are falling away. The design itself is four years old, so I can’t have had the shirt that long!

It’s also not because I’ve worn this shirt a lot, either. As I mentioned above, t-shirts and jeans aren’t my jam — I’m more likely to be in skirts and shirts I’ve sewed and embroidered myself than I am to don a t-shirt. I wouldn’t even bother with writing this whole experience up if it wasn’t for what happened to one of my husband’s shirts from Tee Fury. He ordered one for the Shady Pines Retirement Home (Golden Girls represent) a little less than three years ago. Let’s check in on that design, ok?
