Gear retailers who operate strictly online enjoy a freedom that I find refreshing — mostly because, in their ads, many of these companies call it like they see it.  Take this ad from Duluth for example:  Not only do they tell you why you need a three-inch tail on your T-shirt, they show you why.

This is about as clear-cut as ads get.  They obviously know their customer — dancing around the subject doesn’t work with tool guys.  Just tell us, “Hey, Bob, your ass is hanging out, man.”  It’s effective, to the point, and we know what to do to remedy the situation.  It’s a win all the way around.

Now the real question:  Do you care enough about being considerate to your fellow human beings to blow $14 on a shirt?  I lean towards no myself.

    Duluth Trader has a great catalog as well. They also package this t-shirt in a gag-gift bucket of “crack spackle”

    Plumber’s butt? Just use some Crack Spackle ™!

    Thanks! That’s both the best laugh and the best link that I’ve had in a day or two!

    They are nicely made shirts, I’ve got 5 of them. Very sturdy and they do work as advertised. My wife likes that I’m not showing my customers my backside too.

    I’ve also heard butt crack referred to as ‘The Separation of Church and State”.

    I prefer to find polo type shirts at Kohl’s. Look for a “T” affixed to the size to mean “tall” (i.e., LT, XLT, etc.). Much cheaper and and the extra length prevents showing crack.
