Pour yourself a hot cuppa fashion and celebrate Spanakopita–the Shirt Club way! This 100% cotton feast for the eyes is bluer than a cartoon ocean, and will protect your torso and shoulders from the punishing rays of the Aegean sun at your next goat race or pumice carving competition. Bonus: it’s even removable for sponge diving!

 

Spanakopita tee is available now at AstroBase Go! Want to order the other shirts? You can’t anymore. But this week’s shirt and many others will be available each week until 11:59pm the Sunday night of each new Venture premiere.

P.S.: Are you signed up with Shirt Club, but haven’t received ANY shirts up to this point? Jackson Publick breaks it down on the jump below…

Hello, valued members of The Venture Bros. Shirt-of-the-Week-Club…

Some of you are wondering:  “Where are my shirts?”

The short answer is: “Your shirts will start shipping super-soon.”

As you know, Shirt Club shirts are printed to order—meaning we don’t make a bunch of them ahead of time, and we don’t make more than are ordered. This is why they are so jazzily “limited edition” and coveted by all. It also means we don’t place our order for shirts with our shirt providers until the ordering period for that shirt is closed. For example, the subscriptions and individual ordering period for Week 1’s HankCo and Palaemon shirts ended on June 9th. We tallied, organized, and triple-checked all those orders, then placed our order with our shirt printer on the 11th.

HERE’S THE THING: It is a shitload of shirts. The response to this season’s Shirt Club was so overwhelming that it was, well… frankly overwhelming. American Apparel needed a few extra days to come up with all the blank shirts we needed. And our silk screen printers needed a few extra days to print them. In fact, they’ve been busy at it for a few days now. Compounding the issue was our decision to release TWO different shirt designs in our inaugural week.

But we’re all on top of it now and everything’s on track. The HankCo and Palaemon shirts will be delivered to our Titmouse satellite facility this week, and an eager staff of Honorary AstroBase cadets and Soulbots will immediately begin packing them in ludicrously well-designed custom envelopes, carefully inserting lovingly printed Hankbucks, and sending them on their way. Once they start, shipments will go out at the end of each and every day, insuring we’re getting them to you literally as fast as we possibly can (This is seriously a lot of shirts!).

The order for Week 2’s “U.R.G.H!” shirts has already been placed, and now that everyone knows what to expect and our systems are all in place, things should move a lot smoother for future shipments.

You will all be happy soon. We promise. Like The Venture Bros. itself, VB Shirt Club is worth the wait and eager to please! Ask anyone who was a member last time!

We Love You,

JP

 

So there you have it. As with all things Venture Bros., patience. It’ll all pay off.
