Getting Ready for Summer with T-shirts from The Mountain (w/Giveaway)


One of my favorite ways to show my fanaticism for felines is through my vast collection of cat t-shirts. Throughout the summer months (and during spring and fall paired with a long-sleeve shirt) I live in t-shirts, and truth be told I could probably go several months without wearing the same shirt twice.

Tees that are sure to receive compliments when I'm out and about are from one of my favorite brands, The Mountain®, so when I was asked if I'd like to check out some of their new designs it was like Christmas came early!

Based in my neighboring state of New Hampshire, The Mountain has been a bold player in the t-shirt game for over two decades, appealing to anyone who wants to make a statement or simply just have fun with fashion. While my focus is on their huge variety of cat shirts, The Mountain also carries dog, horse, even wildlife designs. There's something for every animal lover to proudly wear their passion for pets!

Here's a peek at what's inside my closet...

I can't begin to say how much I adore Lisa Parker's designs. These two shirts are Bewitched and Midnight Vigil.


Another Lisa Parker design, The Witching Hour (I also have a clock with this image...the cat's face makes me think so much of Truffles) and Fall Kitty.


From the Dean Russo collection, with proceeds going to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Abyssinian and Watchful Cat.


You can only imagine how much I love The Mountain's Politicats collection. I chose Grumpy for President and Trumpy Cat, but Clinton Kitten and Bernie Cat are also available.


I was able to add still more to my Grumpy Cat collection with Red Grumpy Christmas and Grumpenezer Scrooge (as a Christmas Carol fanatic, this just might be my very favorite shirt of all).


And last but certainly not least, Cat's Cradle.


Yikes, now that I see my collection all in one place it almost looks like I'm obsessed or something. Maybe I am...these shirts are truly special and I will be wearing them for many years to come.

The Mountain uses only environmentally friendly water-based inks and dyes to create their vibrant colors. Their unique printing process actually pulls the dye color out of the shirt and leaves the ink color behind, essentially dyeing the cotton with the ink. (Look at the detail close up...just incredible!) The American made shirts are uber-comfortable, super soft and a total attention grabber!

Have I whet your appetite to add one (or more) of these amazing shirts to your wardrobe? Or maybe you're like me and have been a fan of The Mountain for years? One lucky reader in the US is going to win a t-shirt of their choice from The Mountain! Simply fill out the Rafflecopter below and good luck!!!

Oh my goodness, these shirts are great! Picking just one would be quite a feat. I was really drawn to your Bewitched and Midnight Vigil shirts. Looking just at the cat section of their website, I also really love the Hey You Cat shirt, and, I won't even lie, the Catnibble Lecter Cat shirt. So many fun choices! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Melissa, and for giving us the chance to win a shirt! Purrs!

What a great collection of t-shirts. I love The Witching Hour shirt since I have a black cat. It's great that it has a dark background since so many are printed in white and show each little stain. robeader53@yahoo.com

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. custom t shirts houston tx

Clark Feed said...

The basic requirements are that the shirt should be white; 120s or 170s poplin fabric will work, but better still is a voile which is an almost sheer cotton fabric. This will ensure that the wearer does not get too warm during the evening's proceedings.hot mess
