ENDO Apparel

Introducing a new venture and the 1st product:

I had an idea to start ENDO Apparel a while back to make some fashionable gun related clothing items I thought would be popular, and put them up for sale.  Well after lots of time put in I finally got the website and a few designs done!   I have to say I am real happy with the way the site and shirts turned out, and I really hope you guys are too.

Please check out ENDO Apparel, and subscribe to the mailing list for updates.   I’ve got big plans for this brand; and if these initial shirts sell as well as I hope, I have many more designs in the pipeline.

You’ll notice that I didn’t leave the ladies out of the mix!   I really think there is a lack of fashionable firearm related clothing for women, so i’ll always be keeping that in mind when I put out a new item.

These initial shirts are screen printed on American Apparel BB401‘s & BB301‘s.  They are high quality 50/50 (poly/cotton), made in sunny Los Angeles California.  As you can see from the American Apparel links, the blank shirts retail for $20.  Getting that shirt with a cool design and a woven label on it for $25, to me isn’t bad at all.   Notice I said “screen printed”.   This isn’t any fly by night plastisol heat transfer or direct to garment printed crap!

If you’re a bigger guy/lady and I don’t have your size, just drop me an email and let me know.  If I get enough of you wanting bigger sizes than I have, I will look into getting a batch of larger shirts printed.

As I mentioned earlier, you can subscribe to the ENDO Apparel mailing list for updates.  You can also stalk me on twitter @ENDOapparel , and like the ENDO Apparel Facebook page.

I’m currently accepting orders, and will ship worldwide.  Shipping in the USA & Canada is free, but anywhere else $7 extra.

Whether you buy a shirt or not, I really appreciate all the support you guys have given me since I started this blog.

Have a great weekend,

-Mike

ENDO TACTICAL INC.
Everyday No Days Off

Note: A few of you already have shirts.   I contacted the top 4 blog commentors from last month and sent 3 of them out free shirts.  I couldn’t get a hold on one of the guys because he used a fake email address.   I even posted a blog post, twitter post, and facebook post dedicated to tracking him down… to no avail.  Maybe OPSEC is his primary concern?  I can respect that, but if you ever want to be in the running for future giveaways on here make sure to use your a real email address when you comment.  The CIA wasn’t interested in tracing his IP address for me when I called and asked. hehe

The shirt and the site looks great Mike. Keep up the great work, we all appreciate your efforts. I like what you did with the header of the blog also. It is a lot nicer to look at on my phone now. -Ron

i love your blog, and if i had a glock i would get the stock adapter, but if I could get a shirt in a lighter (like tan) that’d be awesome, I live in a hot state, black doesnt fly to well out here.

ENDO-Mike August 12, 2011 at 04:57 pm

Thanks Razi. Good point about the dark shirts being hot… i’ll consider adding a color for the next batch! That said, you could always buy one to wear exclusively at night :P

Can’t wait to get mine, even if we don’t get free shipping to Canada. Btw, your 404 error is still 1337.

Thanks a lot for your order Ryan! That’s awesome you scouted out the 404 page on the new site haha

3 things

1) i like what your doing with the clothing and with the site
2) my price tolerance for a T-Shirt is about $20 bucks…(i’d buy them all at that price)
3) is it illegal to add the stock adapter to a glock… i.e. does it make it class 3?

thanks and keep it up

Reply

Frank August 12, 2011 at 11:08 am

About 3) You have to pay the stamp tax (200 USD) for turning your pistol into a “short barreled rifle” from what I recall. I could be wrong.

ENDO-Mike August 12, 2011 at 05:07 pm

Thanks Jason! What Frank said about my Glock stock adapter is correct . The one way around the SBR law is to have an extended >16″ barrel though, if you’re into that type of look.

That one guy August 12, 2011 at 06:52 am

Can i brag now? :D.

And i was hoping for a shirt that just basically read:

“Everyday
No days off”

But that weird design works too. And it’s comfy <3

haha yes, the cat is out of the bag so you’re good to talk about it now. I’ll have to put out an Everyday No Days Off one someday!

Hey Dillan, you were #5 last month. Pretty close!

Josh August 12, 2011 at 08:07 am

It’s a nice shirt. The design is cool because not everybody gets it. An anti-gun person who has no experience with firearms – it probably wouldn’t register with them. A military veteran who has handled an M16 or M4; they’ll get it. And like “that one guy” said, it is comfy. It’s a real lightweight shirt, and it’s great for being out and about in the summer heat.

ENDO-Mike August 12, 2011 at 05:15 pm

Thanks for the comment Josh. You summed up exactly what I was going for with the shirt/design. Glad you’re liking the shirt.

Reply

MikeD August 12, 2011 at 08:38 am

Nice shirt n all and hate to get technical but isn’t the “Auto” selection where the “safe” selection should normally be? I’ve never fired a full auto M4 M16, just 3 round burst select fire but I’m assuming auto would be where the 3 round setting would be, to the rear of the switch.

Reply

Cameron August 12, 2011 at 09:30 am

Nope, he got it right. It goes safe on the left, semi on the top, auto on the right.

Or as I like to call it, harmless, mostly harmless, deadly.

Are there plans for “safe” t-shirts? I might get in trouble at work for wearing a loaded t-shirt w/o the safety on.

Jwhite August 12, 2011 at 11:41 am

LOL! Good call!

Reply

ENDO-Mike August 12, 2011 at 05:19 pm

LOL that’s actually the position I had the selector switch in my initial design. In the end I thought having it on “rock & roll” would be more well received though. Just make sure you keep your finger off the shirt’s trigger and always point yourself in a safe direction and you should be fine.

Reply

Jwhite August 12, 2011 at 11:41 am

I’ll pick one up! I like it!

What brand of shirt at you screening these on? Some places use American Apparel, others use Hanes. I dont like the Hanes shirts or the other weird thick cotton shirts. I like the “vintage” cotton shirts. They tend to be more breathable and dont shrink like Hanes and the like. I hate when you buy a shirt say..XL because you tried large and it was a little short. So you buy the XL, take it home, and the next day you wear it… Only to find out the only difference is they made the shirt wider not longer. I find that Hanes and other generic cotton shirts (babbletees, threadless and a few other companies use) suck like that.

Go figure. Need to remember to actually read the item description. *face palm* Thanks for the heads up.

ENDO-Mike August 12, 2011 at 05:22 pm

As Reg said, I used American Apparel; I agree with you that it’s the way to go! They still look just perfect after you wash them over and over too, which is a huge plus.

Jared August 12, 2011 at 01:36 pm

Can we get some tall sizes. Maybe a M/T or a L/T.

Reply

ENDO-Mike August 12, 2011 at 05:23 pm

I’ll have to try and source out some nice comparable shirts for big / tall people. The shirts from American Apparel are among the nicest I’ve seen, but you’re right that they definitely are not ideal for all body lengths and shapes.

Very nice, I might just have to order one! I can’t wait to see further designs in the future. A shirt about “Real Rifles” would be cool.

Thanks Michael. I’m not sure I know what you mean with the real rifles idea. If you want to bounce it off me though, just hit the email link in the header or footer and i’ll give it some thought!

Well, you gotta call the FBI for that Mike; the CIA isn’t supposed to operate domestically.

Damn, I had FBI typed in.. but I googled something about IP tracing and saw CIA repeated everywhere so I just went with that.
