All the items pictured below and more are available here:

These items are not your typical ‘create-your-own-x’ products available from the dozens of websites that will put an image on a dumpy sweatshirt. Instead, I teamed up with small Vermont-based company that designed the logo and helped me sort through several thousand products from nearly a hundred different suppliers in order to create a selection of well-made items that I would want to own myself- (and do.) I am particularly pleased with the quality of the t-shirts, which are not only super comfortable but sustainably produced with fair labor practices.

Don’t worry though, I am not monetizing or becoming mercenary about I do hope to raise enough money to cover the annual hosting fee for the site, but any actual profits will be donated to the charity SmileTrain or a 40k-related fundraiser for a similar charity. In addition to covering my practical expenses and supporting a worthy cause, each purchase you make sustains the website in another way: it helps me stay excited about creating new posts and updating existing content by affirming that my readers are engaged.

Also, if I see you with any branded merchandise at a big tournament, I will insist on buying you a beer. Or tea. Or a hot chocolate if that’s your thing. So if that happens even once, I am guaranteed to lose money on this. Phew! Still a labor of love.

NOTE FOR BUYERS OUTSIDE THE US: If you want to order something, but you are put off by a high shipping cost, send me an email using the contact tab. I can’t change international postal rates, but I can offset the total cost on your end by reducing the price to the wholesale cost.

If you have other ideas for products you would like to see, please drop me a note using the “Contact” tab at the top of the page.

Yours in sartorial enthusiasm,
