We are an independent, mission driven, sustainable apparel brand that has been sewing humor, social consciousness, and laid back sensibility into cool, vintage inspired graphic tees, apparel, & gifts rooted in flavor and fun for over 20 years. Read our origin story here.
Our headquarters location, where we print and ship all orders, is in Burlington, Vermont on the banks of the soul stirring Lake Champlain. Check out our ode to our Green Mountain home.
Our sustainability efforts begin with the products we make, using ethically sourced garments printed with biodegradable eco friendly inks, 100% recycled packaging, and made to order production practices to eliminate waste.
We’ve also partnered with Tree-Nation to plant one tree for each tee purchased in our online store to offset our carbon footprint, help restore forests, create jobs, support local communities and protect biodiversity.
Beyond our eco-friendly t-shirt practices and our One Tee = One Tree™ initiative, being a cool graphic tee company, we're able to do what we do best to create cool environmentalism tees to lend a fun, fashionable voice to the climate change movement.

Our shirts are predominantly true to size, with a slightly tailored cut to provide a nice athletic fit. If you are in between sizes we generally suggest going for the larger option, as they will shrink roughly .5" in width and 1" length when dried on high. Please refer to our fitting room for exact measurements Our suggestion is to measure one of your t-shirts that fit you great and select the nearest option. We offer returns or exchanges on any orders that don’t fit the way you had hoped.
Our t-shirts are custom cut & sewn exclusively for Solid Threads, ethically sourced in the USA and printed in house by our tight knit team in Burlington, VT headquarters. Learn more about the specific of our shirt crafting process here.
Our cool graphic tees are made of a 40 thread count combed, ringspun fabric consisting of either a 60% Cotton/40% Polyester blend or a 50% Cotton/25% Poly/25% Rayon blend for a ridiculously soft, worn-in fit & feel from the get go. As cousin Eddie of the Griswalds says..."Reeeaaaallly niiiiiice Clark." Please NOTE: if you’re expecting a thick, heavyweight cotton t-shirt and that’s your barometer for t-shirt quality, we would have to recommend another brand. Our highly durable t-shirts are made from a lighter weight fabric for a breathable, buttery soft, vintage inspired feel from the get go..
Our buttery soft, vintage inspired t-shirts are printed with water-based inks, free of heavy metals, formaldehyde and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APE), making them non-hazardous, non-toxic and biodegradable. Unlike most screen printed shirts, with thick ink that sits on top of the shirt, our water-based inks get absorbed into the fabric leaving a soft, breathable print.
Our original t-shirts designs are all hand crafted or art directed by our Head T-shirt Guy himself. We also collaborate with a rotating collective of celebrated artists who bring their eclectic personalities and t-shirt design talents to the wearable canvas for uniquely stylish comfort rooted in flavor & fun.
The themes we weave through our vintage inspired t-shirt collection over 20 years in the making are sewn upon a search for acceptance, empowerment, and meaning. Our cool graphic tees take a light hearted (and sometimes winding) path towards this self evolution we seek, but the base fabric of our themes are tied to those core tenets we feel are crucial to cultivating a connected way of being.
These central themes include nature (mountain tees, beach tees, animal tees), culture (art tees, movie tees, food tees, travel tees), fun (music tees, sports tees, drinking tees, marijuana tees), community (location tees, occasion tees, collaboration tees), and mindfulness (environmentalism tees, self care tees, charity tees).
It's the contrast between light and dark threads as they converge that reveals our inherent beauty and uniqueness. Through our tees we hope to transform this seemingly incongruent patchwork of contradictions into a marvelous matrix of meaning.
