Yup, we have a whole entire box of these t-shirts in all of the sizes and they’re virtually guaranteed to rock your world. I know I’m not alone when I say that I wear this t-shirt every single day. It looks really good with black yoga pantsjeans, boyshorts and just about anything you can wear (or not wear) on a human body.

The Autostraddle A-Game T-shirt is a 100% cotton heather grey American Apparel V-Neck t-shirt with a distressed Autostraddle “A” logo on your chest:

These are unisex sizes, so err on the side of smaller, but also they shrink in the first wash.

Also, t-shirts can take up to 2-3 weeks to arrive, sometimes, but it’s worth the wait!

  1. Ok, so here’s the thing with V-necks… Sometimes they expose sports bras/straps/binders, making this reluctantly busty butch real sad. Can anyone speak to how low-cut, narrow, sports bra concealing this one is?

  2. First thoughts: oh she’s pretty cute. love those glasses. talk nerdy to me. what is that necklace? aww cool – a cotton v-neck. dig the color.

    I might buy a shirt, but unisex shirts never fit the way that I want them.

    Also, a question: what are the dimensions of the “You Do You” stickers? I have limited sticker space left on my laptop.

  3. I cannot even tell you how much I want a t-shirt … and a calendar … and a sticker or two … but I really don’t want to envision what shipping to China would cost (plus I have this great mental image of a bunch of Chinese customs officials standing around trying to figure out what ‘you do you’ is supposed to mean). Or I could have them shipped to my parents and pick them up in a couple months when I go home to visit. Hmmm….

  4. ok so this is completely unrelated to t-shirts (because i’m broke) but the model’s haircut is my dream hair and i want it to be on my head. is there a specific way of describing it? how do i find pictures of other people with the same hair so i can see if it’ll look good on me?

    • Print out a photo of Kelsey and take it to the hairdresser and ask, “can you do this and/or is this a good idea?!”

      Or if you’re that broke, maybe print a photo of Kelsey, stick it on your mirror, and ask, “can you do this and/or is this a good idea?!”

      Either option could be potentially disasterous or alternatively, awesome. But maybe do it anyway; hair grows back

    • I love your enthusiasm Liza.

      I think The Whole Enchilada Package is what you’re looking for: Official Autostraddle t-shirt, You Do You sticker, chia-pet unicorn, extra glitter, 1 small kitten and The Queer Kool-Aid sampler.

      You’re “Hello I’m Gay” name badge and ID card will come in the mail in 2-3 weeks.

      Welcome to The Most Awesome Club of All Time. :-)

  5. I bought this shirt last time it was in the store and I absolutely adore it. I wear it with brightly coloured jeans and a black blazer and get told I look cute by my friends :3
