Musings on Men’s Fashion – Review of a Farofa Nation Tee

A few days ago, I got a piece of merchandise – no, not of the contraband variety, unfortunately – to review. It was a tee made by the company Farofa Nation, who’s shtick is making “t-shirts with a conscience.” Evidently they’re all about giving back at Farofa: 10% of sales are contributed to TASK BRASIL, an organization devoted to helping “street kids” (read: disenfranchised youth) in Brasil. I totally support companies that donate to causes or whatever, but not if its product line blows.

Fortunately, the people at Farofa Nation know how to make a damn good tshirt. Not only is the “Join The Army: Tank” piece 100% cotton and form fitting, it also comes with a pretty nifty and topical cartoon for the graphic. And no, it’s not a shitty print job (see below).

To give the shirt a full and proper review, I took it upon myself to wear the tee for three days straight (minus time for showers and loveage), both with collared shirts and by its lonesome. It worked swimmingly in either case. As for color issues, the cool green wasn’t stained by beer and taco juice pills, and it also survived the laundry unscathed. All in all, it looks like Farofa Nation is doing a bang-up job, both in terms of tee design and global village-minded manufacturing. Check them out at

(this is me smelling the tshirt after the wash, or using it as a face blanket, or perhaps even as an H1N1 mask. You decide which sounds cooler and get back to me)
