I purchased this shirt at Brush Creek Media’s BEAR STORE in San Francisco sometime in the 1990’s (from the on sale “AS IS” bin). The bearclerk wasn’t terribly friendly (maybe because I was only looking in the on sale as-is bin?), but I found something that suited me. A simple logo – Bear – Built Tough – discolored/faded, but 5 bucks! But alas, I’m moving, and haven’t be able to squeeze into a “small” in years (decades)…. so…this and a handful of other t-shirts aren’t coming with me – check it (them) out!
