Politically Correct Gifts Ideas from Progresswear

Political Tees from Progresswear

We reviewed Progresswear a while back and they quickly became one of our favorite shops. So we’re more than happy to pass along a couple of t-shirt tidbits. They’ve permanently reduced the price of their women’s shirts and are offering a limited time deal on free shipping. If you’ve got a politically savvy, t-shirt-wearing, gift-worthy friend to shop for this season a Progresswear gift certificate would do the trick.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s T-Shirt Style

Justin and Jessica Wearing T-shirts

This is one of the best two for ones I think we’ve posted. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel sporting a fine pair of, ah, tees. Justin’s wearing RVCA’s smoking ape shirt. And while we usually don’t post up beer t-shirts Jessica’s Coors star tee is just fine with us. I didn’t immediately see a way Justin’s tee on the RVCA site, but I did find a bunch on eBay.
