A new season of Mezcalistas t-shirts

Sure it’s the lead up to the holidays so it’s time for mammon to come full bore but no, we didn’t plan on unleashing our new t-shirts on you just to grab a quick buck from the consumerist whirlwind. No, we had higher motives, we wanted to get our t-shirts in front of Mezcal: Mexico in a Bottle participants and, since that tasting was November 13th, it all just sort of worked out this way. And, there always was that idea of holiday related commerce in the back of our heads.


Anyway, we are happy to unleash our latest t-shirt design and two variations on previous classics. Everyone at Mezcal: Mexico in a Bottle was in love with them, we sold tons, got tons more compliments, now it’s your turn. These shirts are printed on American Apparel or Next Level shirts in both men and women’s sizes so make sure to specify which. Women’s sizes run small so keep that in mind when ordering.


Our new design is Pinche Topes which translates into “F…..g Speed bumps” for, as anyone who has traveled to Oaxaca knows, speed bumps are everywhere, in town, the highway approaches to towns, unmarked in the middle of nowhere on a highway – the the exclamation is common and bundles together so many things that are wrong with Mexico. But it’s also a metaphor for life in a minor key, no matter what you’re going to run into speed bumps, the real question is how you deal with them.


We brought back our Quitapenas and El Prometido (men’s in orange, women’s in purple) designs because they’re much loved classics. Seriously, we strive to give the people what they want!

Lots of people have asked about these designs since our last print run so have at it!
