Screen Printed Unisex Power Washed Tee-US Flag Vertical (£26)
This ladies t-shirt is quite appropriate for the anniversary of 9/11. The price is more than what you would pay for your normal t-shirt. The t-shirt has been given an enzyme wash treatment that simulates 40 typical laundry cycles , thus giving the t-shirt a super-soft feel. The neckline is more open and fits loosely to the body. Sesame Street Bert and Ernie Poly-Cotton Loose Crew Neck T-shirt (£22)
This men’s t-shirt is £4 cheaper than the ladies flag t-shirt. Considering the fact that the t-shirt features two characters, you would expect to pay more. The t-shirt is made from a poly-cotton blend with a loose crew neck. The t-shirt is printed with Bert and Ernie. It’s quite a slim-fitting t-shirt. Kids Sesame Street Super Grover Poly-Cotton Short Sleeve T-shirt (£12)
This kids t-shirt is half the price of the ladies t-shirt. The poly-cotton kids t-shirt is printed with a printed image of Grover. The t-shirt celebrates the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. The t-shirt can be worn by both girls and boys. Infant Sesame Street The Count and Elmo Baby Rib Short Sleeve Lap T (£13)
This babies’ t-shirt is the same price as a t-shirt for an older child. Many people are quite surprised as they think it would be slightly cheaper. The t-shirt is a classic comfortable lap T. The neckline is quite open so it’s not constrictive round the baby’s neck. The t-shirt features images of The Count and Elmo.
