New Goods: Transmit 4 Shirts!

Panic’s history pretty much begins with Transmit. This makes it maybe a little weird that for some time now, we haven’t had a Transmit shirt in our Goods store. “Why don’t you make a new Transmit shirt?” people ask us. Sounds good. Heck, we’ll make two!

The sincere Roosevelt (left, in hard-working black aqua) speaks to an earlier era of transport and transportation, where hard-working teamsters made sure your things got where they needed to go, on time, and with a smile — sure thing buddy, you have my word. An ultra-soft and comfy poly-cotton shirt.

The optimistic Nixon (right, in brave gold color) reflects the power, promise, and potential of a fossil-fuelled future, shining like a fluorescently illuminated rest-stop beacon on a long stretch of I-5 in 1978, long before the corporate parent re-branded under a much less severe, and much more eco-conscious, green leaf.

Designed by the world-renowned Draplin Design Co. of North America, both of these tees are perfect for moving stuff around – at your computer or literally in person.

Many thanks to our users for joining us on Transmit’s eleven-year-long ride!

Yup, Roosevelt is great. The right shirt for hard working devs :-)

The perfect memento for my summer in Portland. Wish I could pick it up from the office in person!

I love the t-shirt but not liking the angled text at all.
For once IE8 lack of CSS support is very good thing.

Nice shirts! But I got another question:

Why the Goods Store is not offering Hoodies anymore?

Love the Roosevelt design, but when mine arrived, I was disappointed at how very, very, thin the fabric is on this shirt. Guess that’s what you meant by “summer-weight.”

I love the hell out of my Roosevelt tshirt, LOVE THE WEIGHT, it usually takes YEARS to get a tshirt this comfortable. Will be ordering several other Panic tshirts, can I just get a confirmation that the rest of your stock of tshirts have the same weight?

Why don’t you make a Coda 2 shirt? ;-)

@jake, the only other Panic shirt that is this weight is the Locke’s Lions shirt. The rest are ‘normal’ American Apparel weight which is lighter than say, Hanes, but not as light as these two.

My Roosevelt shirt just arrived here in London – love it! Many thanks.

The shirts are extremely thin. Not as tight as everyone makes them out to be.

[Only the “Roosevelt” design is on a super-comfy, worn-in 50/50 shirt from American Apparel. -Cabel]

Look awesome! What type of print are they, screen printed?

Finally!!! Cool! I’ve just ordered from Japan.

The ‘Roosevelt’ is a bit thin, but really soft and comfortable. Perfect summer wear :)

I would really love another yellow/orange and purple shirt. Mine is starting to fade. I know the goods store has closed, but is there any way I can purchase one more? Just for old times’ sake? :)

I am very sad to learn that Panic Goods store is closed. I, too, would love to purchase a shirt (or two) if you still have some you’d like to sell.
