Betabrand Presents: The GoTee Shirt Challenge

In today's newsletter: We give your New Year's resolution a nudge, take you on a North Pole hula adventure, and tantalize you with great closeout deals.

GoTees

What's your resolution in 2012? To climb a mountain? Eat a mountain of Rocky Mountain oysters? Learn to paint porpoise portraits? Or perhaps teach a porpoise to paint portraits?

In any case, bravo! And here's your official uniform of individual achievement: the GoTee Shirt. It's more than a rugged crew shirt; it’s an entertaining excuse for you to go out and accomplish something — anything.

Not only did Betabrand engineers design GoTees to motivate all manner of personal projects, quests, and challenges, they also created an online community where GoTees participants can share their trials and tribulations. At long last, through the power of fashion and technology, a man trying to grow a mighty mustache in Maine can inspire a woman training to climb a mountain in Montana. And vice-versa!

GoTees Home Page

Here's how the GoTees Challenge works:

  • When you get your GoTee, draw a design on the sleeve that symbolizes your goal. (Sharpies or Magic Markers are ideal.) Then snap a photo and send us a copy that we can share with the rest of the GoTees Community. The cooler, funnier, or flat-out weirder your logo, the better.

  • Submit periodic field reports to the GoTees message board. This is where you and your fellow participants can share stories, photos, and inspiration. (Also feel free to tweet about your adventures. Just be sure to include #GoTees.) Again, humor is strongly encouraged.

  • If you reach your GoTees goal, we'll send you an awe-inspiring Victory Shirt. (Click on the image below for more info.)

Whether you ultimately succeed, fail, and/or wind up in a Turkish prison, at least you'll know that you've participated in a fantastic fashion adventure. TO VICTORY!
