Q: What is the best way to keep my shirt looking as good as possible?
A: Turn inside out when preparing laundry, wash in cold water with like material, DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER, and hang dry. Hang-drying will stretch the fit a little bit, while throwing the shirt in the dryer will shrink it a little bit.
Q: Are you sold in stores?
A: Nope, Transit Apparel and The Lost Borough is only available on our website and area festivals. Check out the events page for where I’ll be next.
Q: I don't see my neighborhood/area/community!?
A: I am working hard to represent all of the many diverse neighborhoods and communities, tying them together with the public rail system. Some neighborhoods aren’t close enough to the subway line for me to connect to a station, so for those areas, I’ll be utilizing trolley lines.
Q: Are you affiliated with an organization or advocacy group?
A: Officially? No. There are many advocacy groups and organizations I agree with and work to support, like Reconnect Rochester and Young Urban Preservationists, but I have no formal affiliation beyond a kindred spirit.
Q: I don't see the size I want available, when will it be back in stock?
A: Each shirt is limited run, so when a particular size isn't shown, it's no longer available and won't be reprinted. Printing limited runs helps add to the value and exclusivity of our shirts, so if you see a shirt you like, don't hesitate as it might not be available in the future.
