About Nineteen82 Tees

Darrell LaSane started Nineteen 82 Tees in her kitchen, on her birthday (May 25). She spent 2 days making her birthday shirt from hand; tracing and cutting each letter (talk about a headache). "But when I was finished, I was so proud of it, wore it all day with my kids, and took tons of pictures. My cousin said, "I need that shirt," and it made me think, maybe someone else would too! "And Nineteen82 Tees was born.

The first shirt, of course, was the inspiration for it all, "Me, est. on this day in 1982." 

Only positive messages of inspiration, confidence, black excellence and thought provoking content here. "There is enough negativity and ugliness out there. I want people to feel inspired by the shirts they wear and have others be inspired and feel joy when they see them."
