Welcome! My name is Nick and I am the owner of ShirtsThatGo. As a Dad, I found that it was a challenge to find cool vehicle themed t-shirts for my kids. I knew exactly what they would have liked, but it was just not available in stores.
ShirtsThatGo was created 31/2 years ago to make available to parents a great line of t-shirts that appeal to kids that love vehicles. The line currently has 32 designs, with plans to add new designs on a regular basis. Our t-shirt line is an attempt to capture amazing vehicles in motion with as much realism as possible. The idea is that the vehicles displayed on our t-shirts are similar to what the kids are seeing in the real world. The images capture them in motion and larger than life. These are vehicles that amaze and inspire our children. Some of us grown ups are pretty impressed too!
You will see in our line that the vehicles are illustrated with careful eye for every detail. As a boy what I liked (obsessed over) was the fine detail on the various machines that I liked. From the pistons and hydraulics on construction type equipment to the tracks and small wheels on a tank it was the details that captured my interest. I see that same interest in my own kids and others that really like the vehicles.
In addition to the great shirts we also have available full color shipping boxes to really wow the kids and toddlers. We want a package from ShirtsThatGo to be more than the fun t-shirt. We are creating a wonderful gift experience for the recipient that begins right at the mailbox. With either option you can not go wrong since all kids love to receive mail!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and thanks for visiting our store!

When our children see vehicles such as trucks and trains they are just AMAZED and captivated by them. We share that feeling at ShirtsthatGo! All vehicles are interesting, but certain ones are really noticed by kids and tap into their imagination and wonder about the world. Let's consider a few examples that have inspired us:
We take our boys to watch the trains go by at a local train line. We park in, of all places, a fire station parking lot! The parking lot happens to be right on the rail line and only 50 feet from a railroad crossing (with the gates and everything). We know the times roughly for when the Amtrak comes by on Sunday mornings, so we sit in our van and wait for the train to come. Soon, a train horn can be heard off in the distance... the boys start to get crazy excited. The excitement builds as we hear a few more train horns as the train approaches other nearby crossings on the way toward us. Then... the crossing gates start to come down with the familiar "ding ding" warning bells. We are all at the windows now and the boys are riveted. Then - here comes the diesel engine at about 60 miles per hour. It's loud, it's HUGE, and the ground is shaking a bit. WOW!! Boys are there with eyes wide open and just blown away by the experience of this incredible machine. Soon, it is gone, and we are kind of spinning as the energy level comes down a bit. We all have a bit of adrenaline surging from that experience for the next 20 minutes or so, and we are so excited about our day.
Sometimes we find ourselves at an intersection in our van and there is nothing too exciting going on. Just sitting there waiting for the light to change and the kids are in the back chatting. Suddenly, a siren is blaring and a massive bright red fire engine is trying to get through the intersection. The boys forget whatever it was they were fighting about and are wide eyed with WOW! They have seen this before, but it never gets old. What an amazing machine!
There are many examples of this that we all see with our children. What we are seeing with these experiences is their sense of wonder about the world being brought right to the surface by these amazing vehicles. So, what is Shirts that Go! all about? Cool designs on t-shirts... or is there something more? We are trying to connect with that sense of wonder about the world with our line of kids t-shirts. We understand that we cannot bottle that energy and put it down on a shirt somehow. What we can do though is provide awesome shirts with realistic vehicles shown in motion to let the kids share their love for these vehicles. To us this is all about adventure, travel, transportation, early concepts about careers, imagination, dreams, possibilities, awe, and of course FUN!
