Upstate Americans

upstate americans t-shirtCasey emails:

A group of concerned upstaters (many of them Capitol denizens) have designed a T-shirt to promote upstate solidarity in the wake of the flooding. Check it out.
Any profits will go to charities providing disaster assistance in the affected regions.
We've all been posting "I am an Upstate American" on our Facebook pages today; on Wednesdsay, we'll change our status to the link above.

The t-shirts are $25 and up. We like the ones with the up arrow design (image right).

Update: Mr. Dave on his pride in being an Upstate American.

Just bought one.

I was born in the Catskills, and I'm so happy that I've been able to live and work in Upstate New York.

Such a great idea! But I have to ask...were these shirts made in America? It helps to buy local, right?

Liz, if you click on the link you will see the details for the shirt and also see that it is made in the USA.

Liz, I helped set up the Upstate store. All of the short-sleeve shirts are American Apparel, made in USA. The long-sleeve shirts are probably not made in America (there's no information about where they are made with the online vendor). So, buy the short-sleeve ones!

We are planning to move the production soon to an upstate screenprinter and buying all apparel from American sources. Look for updates.

This is my favorite "Upstate Pride" shirt. It doesn't seem to be available anymore though.

32 bucks for a T-shirt? Yes, they are cool, but where does the money go again?

I'll have to wish from afar...
