I looked for examples of Americana in advertising and never thought of something like this. Fun!

i found it both ways. went with this explanation for apostrophe after an s in a proper noun:

But most people would pronounce an added s in "Jones's," so we'd write it as we say it: Mr. Jones's golf clubs.

Remember this label (?) is from a time when spelling was not consistent. I'd forgive any spelling or possessive errors.

Great defense of the spelling - by the way - is it "Skiro Chester"? or "Ski Rochester"?

Ski Rochester.... combo of my passion for skiing and the city I live with no mountains

Which part of the town do you live in? I am moving to chestnut hill area in about a month from St. Paul.

Re: Sew Shop


FINALLY! A intelligent shirt with good design and decent typefaces! It makes me sad to see some of the humorfails for this derby topic. Is it that hard to be patriotic without looking stupid?

Understated, clever, and easy on the eyes. Great work!

thanks for the support and votes on this one. I'm originally from the Philly area (and my mom's name is Betsy) so this was a fun tribute shirt to make
