Father's Day Gift Ideas -- 100% Recycled Clothing from SustainU Clothing (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.

What guy doesn't like to wear a comfy t-shirt.  Or, for that matter, what lady doesn't like to steal her guy's shirt to wear it to bed?  :-)  If you were to walk into my husband's closet, or go through his dresser drawer, you would find over 50 t-shirts.  I am not kidding you.  We stopped counting the number of t-shirts he owns after he his 50.  :-)  Oh, and don't ask him to toss a shirt, as it would be like asking him to get rid of a part of himself.  Just the other day, I was organizing his dresser drawer and swapping out winter clothes with summer ones, and found a few t-shirts he had when we were dating back in college years ago.  I pulled them out to show him that night, as I asked if it was time to retire them.  He said, "they are still good -- nothing is wrong with them."  So, back in the drawer they went.
One of the perks of being a blogger my husband thinks is being able to get free t-shirts for him to try out. So, when I was putting together my Father's Day gift guide, I knew that I had to include a t-shirt vendor, as I know firsthand how men love their t-shirts -- either plain, graphic, etc.  While searching the Internet for men's t-shirts, I stumbled across Sustain U Clothing, which sells 100% recycled clothing for men and women, made by American craftsmen and women in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.  After browsing their selection of t-shirts, I fell in love with their Water Cobalt SS Crew Tee, which is made from 50% Recycled Polyester from plastic bottles and 50% Recycled Cotton scraps.  Just looking at the t-shirt image, I knew it would be a comfy t-shirt that my husband (and I) would enjoy wearing.

I reached out to the folks at SustainU Clothing, and was excited when they said they would send along a sample of this crew tee for review.  And, within a few days, the tee arrived at my door.  I was right, this t-shirt really was soft and comfortable.  And, before my husband came home, I took the liberty of trying it on.  If I hadn't told my husband about the t-shirt earlier, I would have kept it for myself. :-)  But, that night when he arrived home, I showed him this 100% recycled t-shirt.  He couldn't wait to try it on, and took it into the bedroom to change.  As I was cooking dinner in the kitchen, I glanced out of the side of my eye and saw my husband kneeling down and showing off his new SustainU t-shirt to the girls.  

They were all taking turns feels just how soft the t-shirt was.  And, all throughout dinner, my husband couldn't stop talking about the unique design, and raving about how comfy it was.  He loved how the collar around the neck was loose, and how flowed nicely and wasn't oversized.  To him, it was the perfect fit t-shirt, and one that become a favorite.

Since receiving the Water Cobalt SS Crew Tee (valued at $25) to review from SustainU Clothing, my husband can't stop wearing it.  He loves working out with the tee and makes a point to wash it mid-week, so that it is ready to wear over the weekend with his relaxed jeans.  And, on the few occasions he has worn it out in public, he always gets stopped by people commenting on the water drop design.  They either ask if he made the shirt, or where they can get one.  He tells them about SustainU Clothing and how they offer 100% recycled clothing like this t-shirt, and even promotes their Wear 1 and Share 1 Tee Offer (learn more about this offer below). 

So, I can safely say that my husband and I are fans of SustainU Clothing, and that we now have another clothing site we can shop for when we are looking to add new t-shirts and hoodies.  And, the prices are reasonable, as their t-shirts are between $20 and $30 dollars, and hoodies are $40.  If your husband/dad loves his t-shirts, why not surprise him with a t-shirt to add to his collection, which he probably doesn't have -- one that is 100% recycled?  Once he puts this t-shirt on, he, too, will agree with my husband and I about how soft and comfy they are. :-)
