Introduction SHELF LIFE CLOTHING COMPANY is part of a graphic, web, audio and t-shirt design studio daringly based in glamorous Cleveland, OH. Why Cleveland? Why not? Our screenprinting is done right here, and we get to see Lebron James play all the time. We make high-end, limited run, 100% ring-spun soft cotton shirts with a humorous underground vibe. We source our blank shirts from American companies, ANVIL KNITWEAR and AMERICAN APPAREL, ensuring our products are environmentally and socially conscious. Our inspirations are drawn from a wide array of pop culture imagery – particularly from classic Japanese, Hong Kong and Bollywood cinema, 60s spy movies, vintage rock album art, WWII aviation art, spaghetti westerns; eurotrash cinema, and pro sports – Shelf Life makes a point of paying eye-popping tribute to unsung B-movie classics while also satirizing commonplace ideas and delusional behaviors. Our designs have been discussed and featured by a diverse range of media, including ESPN, The Plain Dealer, Salt Lake Tribune, DIME magazine and Film Score Monthly. We take great care in making quality shirts that you will look cool wearing!
