"History Nerd" shirt with Abraham Lincoln
"Love this shirt so much. It is the second one I have bought, just a different color, and now with Lincoln on it. It’s super soft, holds up great and I get a ton of compliments on it." - Jennifer H.
Our original, trademarked "History Nerd" design with Abraham Lincoln has been getting great reviews.

- Our standard 4.3 oz. Poly-Cotton shirt in Light blue heather, Red, and Charcoal heather that gets rave reviews. Our softest shirt. It's also our thinnest and lightest. It is very high-quality and long-wearing, but it is thin and light. Lots of people love them, which you can see in the reviews, but if you judge t-shirt quality based on weight or thickness, do not get this one. Instead, get the 100% cotton shirt above. If you're looking for our softest shirt, the one people rave about, this is the one. S - 3X. See size chart.
Note that the $3 price difference for the 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt is our higher wholesale cost; there is no additional margin.
