My thanks again to Kevin Cornell for the new “helmet” shirt design, and to my friends at Oddica for their printing and shipping expertise.

What You Should Do With Your Daring Fireball T-Shirt

Any high-profile situation where you need to look your best is a good time to wear your DF t-shirt. One highlight from last year came when reader Josh Dickens wore his DF shirt to a taping of the Food Network’s “Bobby Flay’s Throwdown”. Another all-time favorite was Eric Case taking his DF shirt to the 20,000-foot peak of Stok Kangri in the Indian Himalayas.

Here’s another example. Let’s say you’re a successful screenwriter who has written and directed a film that’s playing at Sundance. What do you wear for the promotional photos? John August wore his DF t-shirt.

(August’s movie, The Nines, looks very clever and got great reviews, and he writes an excellent weblog about screenwriting.)
