A couple of years ago, I was introduced to a company out of Houston that made Texas themed, retro video game t-shirts, cannedoxygendesign.com.

The shirt that turned me on to them was the state of Texas imagined as the first level of Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. 3.

I've had this shirt for a couple of years now (and still looks great even after being washed countless times). Any time I where this shirt, I get all kinds of compliments and also asked a lot about where I got it.

A second shirt I ordered from Canned Oxygen Design features our great state, but as a level in the arcade favorite Donkey King. I love, too, how the "score" is the year Texas declared it's independence from Mexico. This shirt gets me noticed every time I wear it.

I wish I got some kind of kick back for talking about cannedoxygendesign.com, but I don't. I just like their stuff. They've got shirts for men, women, kids and even infants. Check 'em out.
