What language is that in? French?

I dislike any clothing that suggests the rightful place for an edged instrument is on/inside me.

edit: I'd like to see the chef's knife silhouette with something about how it's all you really need. Those knife block sets are ripoffs; as a chef I use a chef's knife about 80% of the time (and a paring knife most of the remaining 20%).

Yes. It literally means "put in place".

This would be perfect, I could get one for everyone in my family so when I go home I'll be able to find what I'm looking for in the right drawer. :-P

I like the French. I feel like I could make this though; not sure it is worth 10 bucks.

If I wanted people to know that I was a French psychotic serial killer with a knife I would buy this shirt.

Hm... it's probably good if you hang around a bunch of chefs. If you don't, the general public might think that you're a crazy psycho killer. Which has its own appeal, I suppose.

I really want it for the knife and the cooking and french references...but that's not actually how I typically cook. Oh well.

More cooking and knife shirts though, please!

So I hear wikipedia knows everything.

I like it, but feel like you would need some sort of street cred to wear this...like work in a kitchen professionally.

I LOVE to cook, but feel if I ran into Anthony Bourdain while wearing this he'd kick my ass for being a poser.

Be the change...

next season's Top Chef or Hell's Kitchen or any other food competition show will hopefully see someone sporting this shirt...

So this should come with one of those wooden knife-holding blocks?

Regardless of the culinary reference, I don't think I could ever wear a shirt with a giant knife on it =\.

Mise en place is more or less a cooking area set up by those in the restaurant business. Each cook (chef, sous, line cook, sauce guy everyone) has their own area with instruments, spices, cutting area, etc. It's referred to as a "meeze." Folks in the business will love this shirt.

"Everything in its place": no apostrophe.

I like the shirt. Great design, nice and simple. Black is not the best on me, so I will pass, but it is a great shirt for the rest of you.

I guess woot is officially going for the quasi-celebrity angle? I wonder if woot sought out Mikey or is he also a graphic designer on the side. I want to know more about the process out of curiosity...

I see. Who here has actually used that phrase?

Can I use it when I prepare a PB&J sandwich?

From Wikipedia

Mise en place (pronounced [miz ɑ̃n plas], literally "put in place") is a French phrase defined by the Culinary Institute of America as "everything in place", as in set up. It is used in professional kitchens to refer to the ingredients, such as cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components that a cook requires for the menu items that they expect to prepare during their shift.

Thus explains the razor sharp whit that was required to carve out this design.

Hey Woot..."Everything in it’s place." should be "Everything in its place."

Have worked in the business, spent a year in France, and don't love it. Sorry to say, I also did not like "The Chopping Block".

Did I miss some sort of knife derby? What with yesterday's shirt and today's I almost expect tomorrow's to have some reference to that Bobby Darrin song.
