Finally Food Shirts That Don't Suck


Truth: when I'm not thinking about and consuming food (which is not often), I'm scouring the globe for food-related t-shirts. Unfortunately I'm rarely successful. With the rise of "foodie culture," there are a plethora of options out there nowadays, but rarely am I impressed with the product. Many food tees are overdrawn or too insider or just plain not interesting. That's why when I stumbled upon the Bad Pickle Tees stand at the The Grilled Cheese Invitational a few weekends back, I knew I had to share the discovery.

Established two years ago, BPT is a local company out of Orange specializing in funny, quirky, thought provoking food t-shirts. The company originated, of course, in a restaurant. While in the midst of a meal time "pun off" with a friend, founder Cyndi Grasman proposed, "Duck Duck Confit." She liked it so much, she made a shirt for herself. Then almost every time she donned the poultry pun panoply strangers inquired where she got it. Within a few months, the company was born. 

They now offer a full line of like-minded duds and totes via their website and Etsy. The shirts are often also available at SoCal culinary events like the GCI and the such. Follow BPT's comings on Instagram

  1. When looking for the best yachting shirts in 2017, comfort should be one of the most important considerations. After all, you would surely not want to be in a situation wherein you would want to immediately get rid of your shirt because of the comfort that it provides. One thing that makes this shirt very comfortable is the fact that it is made from 100% cotton pique. It also has the right fit, provided that you choose the size that is right for your body. The Best Polo Shirt is well-stitched, which can provide you with the assurance that it can be used longer.
