Grandpa Jost, FTW! - Classic T-Shirt


Remember that night that Tyson Jost played his first ever NHL hockey game at the Pepsi Center? That night, a star was born… and I’m not talking about Tyson Jost. I’m talking about Grandpa Jost. In a few short minutes of tear-filled joy, he captured the hearts of everyone who has one. Claims of “dusty rooms” were uttered by tough guys trying to hide their “feels” because they knew in that moment, the pride that Grandpa Jost had for his Grandson. Every Grandson wants that! He knew that all of the time, effort, early mornings at the rink and being there for his Grandson had paid off. The dream had come true and the tears of joy poured from Grandpa Jost’s eyes. For a brief moment, we all felt what he was feeling that that was the most authentic cry, I’ve ever seen a man cry. While Tyson Jost may indeed become a star one day in the NHL, his Grandpa became a star, in our dust filled eyes, that very night. With respect and honor for Grandpa Jost, we immortalize that moment with a subtle and simple shirt that only those who know, will understand. 


We love you, Grandpa Jost!


Okay, so the nuts and bolts… this shirt won’t be available forever, we’re clear on that. But there will be a few different small runs, starting with this one. As you know we don’t really like solid prints on shirts that much and we often do a “distress pattern” on the shirt to give it some texture and authenticity, right out of the gates. BUT this time, we were feeling creative and thought “ how cool would it be to mix that distress with the art from another shirt (the COFFEE, HOCKEY, WHISKEY, SLEEP shirt if you’re wondering) like a beer aged in a whiskey cask? 


So we did. It’s subtle, but there. It breaks up the big bold print with some authentic distress like the canvas of an old world painting that is peeling off to show the underpainting from a 100 years before that. It’s what custom shirts are and we love it! Here’s hoping you love it too. 

Grandpa Jost FTW!

  • 88% print with an awesome distress pattern that blends with the shirt but doesn't make a "chest-plate" of ink
  • Soft CVC fabric, minimal/no shrinkage

About the fit: The Grandpa Jost FTW! shirts are printed on Next Level garments specifically chosen for this design and they are a "true fit". Also, they are pre-washed garments that shouldn't shrink much in the laundry. 

Sweat much bro?

But seriously, we'd be jerks if we didn't tell you that this "gray heathered shirt fabric" changes to a dark gray with just a bit a moisture. So if you sweat like Chip Gaines of Fixer Upper, this may not be the shirt for you. We love you, so we speak in truths!
