While we’re all about dressing by the day, we’re willing to embrace any tee that’s brilliant in its simplicity. It helps if there’s a good cause behind it, too. And that’s where Fine By Me comes in.
It’s one-part fashion, one part political statement. The line of “Gay? Fine by me” T-shirts is tied to the Fine By Me project, which helps to bring awareness to gay rights. They’ve already distributed 50,000 Fine By Me tees, and not just to your average Threadless.com shopper. These tees are being snapped up in droves by community organizations, including student groups. Got an idea for your own Fine By Me campaign? They’d be more than happy to help you get started.
