Since 2001, Solid Threads has sewn humour, originality, and laid-back sensibility into a celebrated collection of vintage-inspired t-shirts rooted in simplicity and style. Our clothing tells tales of creative seeking, progressive thinking, grittiness, laughter, and love. Our mission is to inspire people to embrace their true character and write their own stories.
'We've been writing ours through a longstanding collection of cool retro tees with vintage inspired graphics, individually designed or art directed by the head t-shirt guy himself, ethically sourced and sustainably printed in house at our Burlington, VT headquarters. We share this story through the social movements we empower in SolidariTEE, the uplifting and practical entrepreneurial insights we regularly offer, and the inspiring tales of unique characters we continually connect with on this ever evolving journey.'
When our Head T-shirt Guy first started making cool graphic tees back in 2001, toiling in the cubicle jungles of midtown Manhattan, the notion of attuning to a deeper purpose to cultivate a unique, authentic voice, was not something he had ever been taught to do; in fact, it was quite the opposite. Since before he could speak, the powers-that-be set him firmly on the expected path, so much so, it had nearly been predetermined before he ever even heard the sound of his true voice.
Through the tedious process of building Solid Threads, he learned to cultivate a SOLID foundation of his own design, following the unique THREADS of his deeper calling, weaving them into a tapestry uniquely his own, where the dark shades of his setbacks, came to offset the light tones of his breakthroughs, settling into a splendid, cohesive whole.
Solid Threads is a sojourn of seeking, 20+ years in the making, fueled by this elusive spark of knowing we all possess, sewn into the humblest of undergarments, the t-shirt, worn close to our chests, offering a voice to our hearts.
