“I WAS GIVEN A STATESIDE SHIRT FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND WORE IT FOR A WEEK STRAIGHT. THE MATERIAL USED AND SHAPE OF THESE T-SHIRTS ARE PERFECT!”

Where are you from?
Kalamazoo, Michigan (yes, it’s a real place)

What do you do?
I make 90’s inspired pop-culture pins at PattiLapel.com.

What are you working on now?
We’re gonna try to bring POGs back. You know, those round cardboard things that people obsessively collected in the 90s. It could be a huge failure or an incredible success. Can’t wait to find out!

What do you like best about Stateside?
I’m a white t-shirt connoisseur. My wardrobe is 90% white t-shirts. Am I crazy? Maybe. But I’m always on the lookout for amazingly fitting shirts. I was given a Stateside shirt for my birthday and wore it for a week straight. The material used and shape of these t-shirts are perfect! My dream is to have a closet full of only Stateside T-shirts. One day…

Anything else you’d like to tell us?
I play on a women’s basketball team called the Pistol Shrimps. We’re so awesome (personality-wise, not so much skill-wise) that a documentary was made about us. You can watch it on Seeso! We play every Tuesday in LA, follow us on Instagram for the schedule: @thePistolShrimps
