Food / Drink related clothing

I'm sure i'm not the only one with my share of this stuff, not talking aprons or footwear and such that has a kitchen-related purpose. Figured a fun thread was in order.

My PJ's gave me inspiration :D. "Nestle" brand, covered in candy names like Nerds, Tart n Tiny's, Runts.

I've proudly worn my share of beer-branded or bar t-shirts over time, and refuse to let go of the threadbare Molson t-shirt that i've had since college.

I have been vigilantly hunting for the elusive Johnny Cupcakes "Make Cupcakes, Not War" t-shirt, in my size.

I recently purchased a birthday gift t-shirt for a friend with sequined wine glasses across the front and "wines constantly" underneath.

My love of food spills over into lots of areas of my life :)

    I have a Vince's Spaghetti t shirt, a couple of local LA brewery t shirts and a coffee mug with the logo from Southside Market of Elgin, TX, famous for their barbecure and especially sausage.

            I used to have an apron that said "I've got more time for lovin' since I got my microwave oven". Yeah.

              Saw this on a Mission hipster recently:

              "Pho You."

              I'd wear that.

                There is a restaurant around the corner from my house that keeps changing names. The latest one is "Pho King Way".

                I wanted to resurrect this thread in time to lead up for the holidays, and also because I had a non-wearable, but a "do want" food-related item on my radar for a little while now.

                  You should know I love this thread, so glad you bumped it...I have wanted this t-shirt ever since I saw Rick Bayless wearing it. And so nice to see the women's (fitted) versions available instead of the oversized ones. :)

                  "Bacon...it's what's for dinner" is cool, too, with the pig diagram!

                    it probably says a lot about me
                    1) that i scrolled thru pix of all 200 food related t-shirts
                    2) that i exclaimed to myself, "well, i just got all of my holiday shopping taken care of!" ;-P

                    thanks very much for the link. going to find credit card now.

                          Somewhat related...I just got my nails done with a full English breakfast... Tea and Toast on my thumbs, bacon, black pudding, egg, and beans on the right hand, and hash browns, mushroom, tomato, and a sausage. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

                                I've been looking all summer for that shirt with the wine glasses that says Wines Constantly. Can you tell me where you got it. I saw one in a small size at a winery in PA and have been searching for one since.

He has a lot of food designs I would buy if I could afford it, bartlett pears, cranberries, grapes, mint leaves, dang it now I'm hungry!

                                    I have chili pepper earrings, and one of a pair of banana earrings. I also have red bell pepper earrings but they're way too heavy for my ears, so they're on a knick knack shelf.

                                            I have several pairs of Nick and Nora PJs which are food-related--coffee cups and donuts, tropical drinks, and candy.

                                            I also own tee-shirts from fine drinking establishments such as Jeffery's House of Foolishness, and Cactus (a bar by the Chicago Board of Trade with with warning "don't drink and trade" on the back.

                                            Oh, and several items of clothing with retro 50's cherry prints.

                                                    One of my favorite T-shirts, besides the usual ones I wear (CIA, Jessica's Biscuit, Slow Food, various wineries) is from the Summer Shack group of seafood restaurants in New England. Across the back is their trademark logo "FOOD IS LOVE". Always gets comments at farmers markets, cooking classes, etc. I tell people it's my motto as well.

                                                            Two that I've seen and enjoyed: T-shirt with the words Make 7 on the front, and Up Yours on the back. And a girlfriend used to have a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup T-shirt that said "Two great tastes" across the front...that one certainly got some comments!

                                                              I had a coarse fabric Dos Equis “serape” that I loved and wore everywhere. Everywhere that is until it mysteriously vanished one night. I was pissed, but hope that someone, somewhere is enjoying it like I did.

                                                              Also I remember the “Grab a Heinie” t-shirts were very popular in high school, until they were banned.

                                                                I make many of my clothes, particularly shirts/ blouses. I often shop in the juvenile section of the fabric store. I made hot pepper shirts (of two different fabrics at two different times) for my husband and myself. I have a blueberry blouse, a mixed veggie top, a mixed fruit top, a blouse with avocados, walnuts, strawberries, and grapes on it, etc. My husband has a hot pepper necktie and hot pepper socks. I have also received as gifts a shirt with mixed fruit on it and a (night)shirt which says "Milk is a Natural?" and shows a man and a boy on their knees drinking directly from a cow's udders...

It has lots of bright hibiscus flowers and a petroglyph-syle line drawing of a guy on a surfboard holding a steaming plate lunch in one hand and a cold drink in the other. Best part is the caption: Fat Boys Club.

As it is, it'd be false advertisement. I just bought my first rolling pin two years ago. Before that, I used wine bottles. :)

I'm interested in picking up a few and just wondered if anyone had positive/negative experiences. They appear to have some really fun tees.... pho done as an iphone app, "it's espresso not expresso" heh.

Not overpriced (although I think the individual "vendors" [?] set the prices). The shipping was also reasonable, and faster than expected - they must have handled the order quickly.

Tacky, and I never have seen anyone wearing one. However, to move to something more widely acceptable, how about Hawaiian shirts with cocktails or pineapples on them? I have a glasses case with sushi on it, Plenty of shirts from eating places here and there. Ditto caps. Does jewelry count? Probably 20 pairs of food earrings, including sushi. Several brooches, including one made from crackers. Tried to persuade DH to get the sushi tie with no success.

Here's the Beef!" t-shirt from the 80s (referencing the 1984 Wendy's ad campaign: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug75di... ). The t-shirt has an arrow on it pointing to his chest.

A common tourist T reads "This is not a beer belly, it is a fuel tank for this love machine" (arrow pointing toward the center of the earth).

Also have sox with tropical drinks on them--festive for Fridays (along with my South Beach socks). And socks with a coffee and chocolate theme. I have a stuffed teddy bear (gift from an old beau) that says "I looooooooooove chocolate!" when you squeeze his paw.

                                                                                                                    I have a top with a sequined champagne flute for festive occasions.
