Albany is eggcellent everywhere

albany eggcellent shirtWe spotted a person wearing an "Albany is Eggcellent" shirt yesterday in Uncommon Grounds. The shirts are made by New York Old School and, as we heard, they were designed by local artist Michael Campion.

Get this: after we tweeted that we saw someone wearing the shirt, we heard from other people that they were wearing their "Eggcellent" shirt right at that moment. In NYC (we think). And Denmark.

(Thanks, Laura and Mike and Harith and Pete!)

Later on AOA: New York Old School is selling the shirts again (August 2011)


The former Gov and First Lady have a set in red and blue! :)

How strange. I was wearing mine yesterday too.

NYOS also makes the always-classy Area Code shirts.

If you have any eggstra cash, I highly recommend this tribute to Mayor Suntan's City:

I picked up three from NYOS before heading over here this semester. I have the 518, Albany is Eggcellent, and Moo York shirts. Takes more than a little while to explain them to the Danes and other international students, but at least the outline of the state on the Moo York shirt has come in handy on a number of occasions when I get blank stares saying that I'm from Upstate New York.

Mine says Albany is Eggciting

Does anybody know if these are still being sold anywhere? I just checked the New York Old School website and it's down. Hoping to buy some as Christmas gifts. Thanks!
