Every Shirt XLII: Tankard - We Still Drink The Old Ways

Free Image Hosting at

shirt: Tankard
size: 2XL (EU)
vintage: 2005
provenance: catalog

Ordered and delivered while I was in Germany, this shirt features a fat ugly cuss with a brimming beer glass on the front, and the slogan in the title on the back: Reinheitsgebot 1516. Pure Tankard, down to the last drop. I have a surprising amount of Tankard gear for someone whose primary residence is in North America, but this is, for the most part, the one that sees the most use.

It's a little odd considering that Tankard, and also many of their fans, are "beer-gut enabled", that their shirts are uniformly cut small. This one is probably the smallest 2X I own that wasn't bought in Asia, and the other two shirts further down in the pile are close-cut as well. Seriously, Gerre should try putting some of his band's merch on sometime.
