I wear your shirt - The trifecta for Silly Saturday single link posts.

I'm not sure what's more annoying: that the guy takes pictures of himself working out, or the fact that if he successfully sells out all the calendar days, he'll be $66,000 richer than me. Either way, I'm not happy.

By the way, I have no involvement with this guy whatsoever. I came across his site from a CSS showcase yesterday. I won't be sending him any Pepsi Blue shirts in the near future, that's for damn sure.

Sigh. I wasn't serious, bjork.

I don't care, just as long as he doesn't drink my milkshake.

I'm sort of appalled that he can commit to a t-shirt and jeans for a full year. Won't there be any events in his life in the next year that demand buttons?

That idea is probably just stupid enough to work.

Coincidentally, I am registering iwearyourunderwear.com, in which I will wear your underwear.

Not the underwear you sell, mind you. Your underwear. Please don't starch.

Wonder which day Matt bought.

Flagged for editorializing. I was all prepared to love him, but then you ruined it for me with your snarky (more inside).

Deliberately making work for the Mod Squad is not good citizenship.

In AskMe, he says you're giving mixed messages.

Think how much more he could make if he was a chick with an awesome rack. Hmmmmmmm.

I was hoping for some weird mutant meme of I Drink Your Milkshake.

On the topic of wearing t-shirts: 155 t-shirts worn at once (2006), topped by 224 t-shirts worn at once (2007). I think they were both fund-raisers for non-profits. Wearing one a day seems like no big thing in comparison.

You can see which shirt he'll wear which day on his calendar, or just stay tuned to his twitter chirps, flickr posts, and all that jazz. He actually has 1,590 following his tweets. Wow.

I have no idea what that means.

Until next Shaturday, of course!

Actually I think this one's more neat/clever in a Million Dollar Homepage sort of way than silly.

Also, my birthday is still available, if anyone has 357 bucks burning a hole in their pocket.

Doesn't HOLLISTER & CO already do this with, pretty much everybody.... and get paid for it?

I had this idea first, but mathowie wouldn't send me a free metafilter shirt, so I never made it past day one.
posted by cjorgensen at 7:36 PM on January 17, 2009


And if anyone cares, he's on twitter: @iwearyourshirt I do follow him there. He's not as annoying as you would imagine. Pretty much what it says on the tin.
posted by cjorgensen at 7:43 PM on January 17, 2009


Will he wear any shirt for the right price? Cuz my shirt is gonna say "Punch me in the gut and I'll give you $20!"

If you guys want to help chip in on the $66,000, we can get him to wear it for a year straight.

Really? I mean, really?

I have to gather from two mod comments above that this has been, uhh looked at or whatever, and is going to stick around. Fortunately someone already linked to the Million Dollar Homepage as well, and I can just quarantine this tiny fragment of the best of the Web away somewhere with my seething hate and get on about my day.

It's like 2% I wish I'd done it first and knew how to get everybody to link to me as if it was interesting and 98% No that's not it at all I just want it to go away forever.

Color me late to the party, but it sounds like a lot of sour grapes in here because y'all didn't think of it first. How are YOU making your $66k this year?

I'm just glad MetaFilter can do its part to help market this idea.

orme, says, Will he wear any shirt for the right price? Cuz my shirt is gonna say "Punch me in the gut and I'll give you $20!"

I'm guessing you need to buy in on January 20th 2010.

And, Bokononist, says I have to gather from two mod comments above that this has been, uhh looked at or whatever, and is going to stick around.

You're right, we need mathowie in this thread!

Man, I've been wearing shirts all my life and never thought to get PAID for advertising the stuff on them.

KMFDM owes me a ton of money.

Good lord, the first time I saw a "Hollister, California" shirt I figured the end was upon us: who the hell would want to tie anything to Hollister, CA? What's next, Fresno & Associates?
