"Band of Bros" lax t-shirt

Lacrosse T-Shirt Designs By Readers, For Readers

8 - Published January 24, 2011 by in The Life

Two weeks ago I decided to use the daily Hot Pot of Lax post to showcase some t-shirt design ideas that LAS staff members had been throwing around lately. From tank tops and pocket protectors to a Jim Brown homage, it was fun to share those ideas and get immediate feedback from readers.

On the last day of the week, I challenged LAS Readers to send in a few of their own designs. I said I’d pick one person to work with and we’d finalize a design together. They’d also win a pair of LAS Apollo Creed Shorts.

Let me just tell you, picking a winner was A LOT harder than I thought it’d be. Too many cool ideas!

Below is a handful of the submissions we received that included images or mockups. There were also some awesome, original ideas sent in text-only, a couple of which I may take a crack at over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

“99 Problems” by Mason Moorhouse (Wheaton, IL)

“Lacrosse is My Business” by Jahmas Hamilton (Silver Spring, MD)

Note: one thing Jahmas and I talked about for the back of this is adding some long hair around the neckline, kind of like the infamous Clay Matthews flow tee.

Business in the front, lacrosse in the back.

“Cruz Lacrosse, Empowered by Jah” by Eric Maciel (Santa Cruz, CA)

Note: Could be a cool sublimated tee. Here’s a little explanation from Eric:

The concept of this is the fusion of two of my passions Slug Lacrosse (my UC Santa Cruz Lacrosse team, hence “Cruz Lacrosse”) and reggae. This image holds themes from Rastafari. The rasta colors are of course one of them and the enthiopian lion (the lion of Judah). The lion represents fearlessness and strength.
