News-Antique.com - Jan 13,2009 - Austin, Texas. Just those two words bring to mind blazing hot temperatures. Three words more; University of Texas and college kids from around the world jetting back and forth to classes, hanging out around campus, at the local joints and working around many of the restaurants and other retailers in Austin. It’s a familiar scenario that’s taken on a life of its own of late and more than college kids are making their choices these hot new stylish Onesies; the clever stay-in-place t-shirts that give you a chance to tell your own story on a tee.
Everyone knows how hot it gets in Austin, especially in the summer. This past summer more and more people elected to take a few creative liberties with custom designed t-shirts that weren’t just hot fashion statements but kept them nice and cool on those sweltering days when it just walking across the street could break one into a full blown sweat.
Storyville is about you, not about putting a design on a tee. Any off the rack t-shirt has that and it’s nothing special. Giving you American Apparel quality t-shirt material and add hundreds of brilliant colors is what it’s about. Add thousands of fonts, hundreds of designer names make the designing possibilities almost endless and you’ve got a concept that’s blazing around Austin like wildfire!
Once upon a time, the stigma associated with t-shirts was reserved for biker types and delinquents who ran around in what was nothing more than a modified undershirt. Today, t-shirts are not only fashion statements for individuals of all ages but they define a class of designer souls who can pluck an idea right from a page of thought and turn into an article of clothing that is eye-catching and acceptable in almost any social setting.
