Shirts

Welcome to the Secret MMM T-shirt store.

Sold Out for now, thanks for your interest!

The details, in case I print more someday:

These are top of the line American Apparel tri-blend t-shirts, sewn in not-all-that-bad conditions in their factory right in downtown Los Angeles.

These AA shirts cost about twice as much wholesale as cheapo brands, but really, we are talking a $5 difference here. I tried on all the options and going for better quality seemed easily worth it.

It’s a really well cut garment that lasts for years – important, as it will obviously be your favorite shirt ;-)

Price is $16 per shirt, including free shipping.
Exactly my cost after Paypal, shipping costs, eco-friendly envelopes, printer labels, paying local helpers $1 to mail it, etc. – non profit.

USA only for now – my apologies! But feel free to print your own if you want – logo below.

As the remaining shirts sell out, I will delete the Paypal buttons, so what you see below is still available.


Men’s / Unisex Shirts

Our low-cost model (6’0″ / 185 lbs) is wearing Unisex size M in this picture.


Check your shipping address before ordering! 
Many people have been sending “Help! I ordered to the wrong address!” emails. You can save yourself from being one of these people :-)Notes:

  • The shirts are a little larger than you’d expect for any given size. I normally wear large, but the medium is a pretty relaxed fit as you can see from the back picture. Very soft and stretchy too.
  • Please, no returns or exchanges – we have done our best to show the size and fit, but I’m not really a retailer and exchanges are incredibly time intensive and this is not an expensive item. Order at your own sixteen dollar risk!

Why the pennies? Because the Paypal interface is so bad that it doesn’t tell you what people ordered in the main summary page, I had to set the prices to unique numbers to avoid having to click into every order to see what people bought.

The MMM Logo, for do-it-yourselfers:You may download this and print your own shirts, or even make them for friends, but please do not sell these for profit.If you’re good with a knife, you can actually print this on plain paper and spraypaint a simplified version on your favorite existing blank shirt. I’ve done this before to create silly random shirts with eagles, carrots, etc., and it makes a really cool, surprisingly durable shirt.If you have T-shirt printing equipment and want to be a low or non-profit distributor for your own country, post your contact info in the comments below.

    Dilemma: really, really want one, but $15 is more than I’ve spent on t-shirts in total for the past 10+ years (various volunteer activities, sports, & hand-me-downs keep the closet stocked). Not a bad price, just a relentless pursuit of badassity in this wardrobe (my wife isn’t as fond of the “item in/item out” rule as I am, but it keeps us at a fixed number of hangars! :-) ). Love the idea though, they’ll no doubt sell out quickly!

      Great choice Eric! The very existence of this shirt kind of contradicts the philosophy of the blog. Then again, the fact that I drink beer is at odds with my desire for maximum fitness. I am an imperfect person. :-)

        And yet, I wouldn’t want to be caught wearing one while buying a fancy coffee or getting into a clown car. It’s like a $15 reminder to be a frugal badass while wearing it. It’ll pay for itself.

      Unfortunately, you will have to wait – and probably an infinite amount of time!

      International shipping is way too labor intensive due to customs forms, etc. Also, a waste of money since t-shirts are a commodity you can find anywhere. I’d recommend downloading the logo and printing your own.

Also, the spray paint and make your own template/t shirt is a great idea as the kids are out for summer break and I’m making a list of activities to keep us busy, this just made the list!!

    YAY! Will proudly sport my newly minted MMM t-shirt in the land of metro-NYC consumerist insanity. Maserati dealership just opened 10 mins away. Ugh. Found your blog in 2011. Changed our lives. Paid off our house last month. Now using our firehose of cash to build our cushion for early retirement and get the hell out of CT before the state declares bankruptcy. I was always an avid student of personal finance but you pulled it all together for me. Thank you and keep on leading the way. A sea change is at hand!

    I ordered one. Yes, it seems like a frivolous use of money but I think wearing it may be an interesting social experiment because I *might* meet some more mustachians. In my spendy SoCal community, folks tend to keep their spendthrift and very limited car clown behaviors on the down low, so it might be a way to connect with some other like-minded folks.

    Reply
    • Mr. Money Mustache June 10, 2017, 12:28 pm

      That might actually work to find other Mustachians!

      The very first time I wore mine in public, the grocery store checkout guy asked where I got the MMM shirt. When I told him it was me, I earned a great fist bump from him.

    • Mr. Money Mustache June 10, 2017, 8:07 am

      Yeah, definitely a good idea. The “small” size will look good on most ladies, but it would be better to have the shaped/shorter sleeved option.

      I think I’ll have the shirt printers bring a batch of those over, because we need to help fight the impression of Mustachianism being a guy thing.

    If I’m in Longmont can I get one somewhere without you shipping? I don’t mind paying the full $16 but would love to avoid the packaging and waste that goes into shipping something across town. Maybe Mrs. MM’s shop? Never been there as I don’t get near downtown too often and when I do it’s to Lucky’s, ecocycle, and the library!

        I was wondering the same thing. Just moved to Broomfield, drove through Longmont when I first got here… But didn’t want to be that creepy guy stopping by the store for no reason! Now there is a reason if I ever find myself in town again! Liking the FI shirts people are coming out with, bringing the community together with swag.

This is so exciting. Frivolous but fun and I will use it to share the message of your great blog in the UK!

    Thank you for producing them! Love it. Excited. Happy Sunday

  • Francis June 11, 2017, 10:19 pm

    I would love to buy one, but I’m kind of shocked that you went with “tri-blend” and called it “top of the line.”

    Polyester is not a good t-shirt material. It retains heat, it retains body odor, it attracts static electricity. Polyester is a form of plastic. It’s cheaper than cotton, and that’s why it’s included in cheap t-shirts. 100% cotton is the only way to go.

    Please consider producing another run of these with classic 100% cotton t-shirts. Natural fiber is way more mustachian than polyester.

    Reply
    • Mr. Money Mustache June 13, 2017, 2:14 pm

      Sorry Francis – I totally disagree. You can get 100% cotton printable shirts for $3. But I try to avoid buying anything in 100% cotton, if I want it to be a primary piece of clothing for many years. The main problem is shrinking and becoming baggy over time (ever seen a 5-year-old pair of all-cotton underwear?

      Other than wool, most of the best quality clothing includes multiple fabrics including poly, spandex or rayon, to provide shape retention and stretch.

        Jeez even this secret thread has a bunch of complainypants. Agreed…tri-blend is the way to go. For my Brewer’s Arcade shirts I’ve gone with the Next Level tri blend and been very happy. I’m sure these will be great. I’m 5’10” and 160lbs so I went with the medium per your advice although I usually rock a large. Thanks for making these man! Cheers

Though I was actually the one who got him reading your site so many years ago… I’m not sure I could pull the look off as well as he could;) We live in the “richest” county in FL and I’m thinking that chances are good he won’t have to worry about anyone showing up wearing the same thing.

    Like many others I was somewhat conflicted, but it’s too tempting… Just got one for myself and my wife! She went from a non-believer to full fledge Mustachian with the help of some articles and conversations over a few weeks. :-D It feels great to be on the way to FI, even if it’s still a long ways away.

      They ship via US Postal Service, and most of them are going out my door within 24 hours of the order so far. From that point, about 2-3 days for delivery.

    Are you sure these are made in the USA? Since selling to Gildan in January, American Apparel has openly spoken about only keeping production of a few key items in the USA and moving production to their other plants around the world. It sounded like most of the wholesale production would be moved.

  • Peter G June 14, 2017, 1:11 am

    Just ordered a shirt as well – thanks for doing these Pete!

    There is a strong ROI case for investing in an MMM shirt, as I can envision that the mere act of donning the aforementioned garment will instantly increase my own financial badassity, causing me to make better financial decisions that decrease the cash burn rate and keep the ‘Stash heading in the right direction.

    This particular shirt will head back to your native Canada (via my USPO box) and will be proudly sported on the streets of Kingston, Ontario!

    Best,
    Peter

    I hesitated at first, but concluded the cost of this purchase ($16 inflated into perpetuity and the future landfill waste) is far outweighed by the benefit of marketing the mission of anti-consumption and financial badassity! Besides my wife and I and the few friends I’m slowly persuading on this lifestyle, I have yet to meet another Mustachian here in Columbus, OH. Hopefully this can help change that and/or bring the others out of the woodwork. Good idea and thanks!

        Hey Art and Tyler!

        Hmm, I should have foreseen this, but I have no experience in retail.

        I don’t want anyone to feel bad. But a thousand shirts with no profit margin to pay for employees and customer service can only be dealt with if you really don’t spend much time on each one – it has to be extremely rapidfire. Even as it is, I’ve spent 60 hours working on this silly but still fun project.

        Doing returns and exchanges is getting kind of crazy on a $16.00 purchase, especially when round trip shipping would cost us $6.00 and probably an hour of our time.

        Instead of retail norms, I would think of this transaction under social or gift norms. A friend of a friend is the bass player for the Weird Al Yankovik band, and had a few leftover concert shirts. He mailed you one and it was too snug for your tastes. Do you mail it back and ask for an exchange?

        So, my first suggestion, just from coldhearted efficiency, would be that you give the shirt as a gift to someone, and order another shirt for yourself if you really want one.

        The second option is that I can apologize to everyone and never attempt to sell novelty items to such a large group of people again, because it’s too much of a time commitment.

        Reply
        • Peter G June 19, 2017, 6:29 pm

          I think the idea of giving away any mis-sized shirts to a friend who is either an MMM fan or in need of a greater level of financial badassity is the way to go.

          MMM – you may even want to amend your post offering the shirts to suggest the “No returns or exchanges – give to a friend, then reorder correctly” policy right above the order buttons!

          Keep to the simpler path and keep up with the great novelty ideas MMM!

Something like this (with colour choice):- https://www.streetshirts.co.uk/en-gb/creation?designkey=PFC%5B0UA75s6Ey04d6y656PseE1p10t5KE6%5D or this (without colour choice):- http://www.streetshirts.co.uk/sell-t-shirts?PFC%5BVlzTNu0dDGA9G2twN0jQJ9mjRg5hXa%5D

    I LOVE the blog and wanted to represent, but realized belatedly that your logo has cursing, which I’m not willing to promote.

      Chris, with all due respect, “Badassity” is not cursing.

        Thanks for taking care of that refund Pete!
        Very considerate of you. If it had already shipped, I would have understood and just eaten the $16 and given the shirt to a local mustachian.

        As for my cursing comment, I’m afraid we will have to agree to disagree.
        My understanding is that cursing/profanity/etc is simply socially offensive language, and in my social circle i would be offending others
        (and breaking own convictions) by either cursing or wearing a shirt with cursing on it.

        I don’t mean to offend you with that position, and I would not expect you to hold the same convictions.
        As a man of conviction yourself, I hope you can respect that I want to be faithful to my own.

        Thanks again!
