Crazy Dog T-Shirts: Review and Giveaway!


Crazy Dog T-Shirts was founded in 2004, by Bill Kingston, at Ithaca College (which is actually incredibly close to my house). At first, just a few t-shirts were sold as a final project for an e-Commerce class. When the t-shirts picked up in popularity, Bill decided to extend the project into a business! In 2007, the company had expanded enough for Bill and his wife to move the company from their home in Rochester, NY, to an office space. Then, in 2012, Crazy Dog T-Shirts began operating out of a full sized warehouse, with 15 full time and 2 part time employees. 

Crazy Dog T-Shirts strives to bring you original and humorous t-shirts that are made out of quality materials. Around 80% of their t-shirts have custom designs from the company, and the other 20% come from partner companies, such as Junk Food, Ripple Junction, David & Goliath, and Goodie Two Sleeves. They also operate a screen-printing shop for customers and businesses alike.


Although there are far too many t-shirts on Crazy Dog T-Shirts to introduce you to, here are the categories you can explore:

  • Kid's Tees and Baby Shirts
  • Women's T-Shirts
  • Men's T-Shirts
  • Cool T-Shirts
  • Movie T-Shirts
  • 80's T-Shirts
  • Cheap T-Shirts
  • Dog T-Shirts
  • Funny T-Shirts
  • Graphic T-Shirts
  • Hilarious T-Shirts
  • New Tees
  • Novelty T-Shirts
  • Offensive T-Shirts
  • Retro T-Shirts
  • Sweatshirts and Hoodies
  • Vintage T-Shirts
  • Maternity T-Shirts
  • Gay Pride T-Shirts

Here are a few of my favorites that I found while browsing the Crazy Dog T-Shirts website:

Noble Gases Shirt 

I love Science related, geeky t-shirts like this one!

Shark Heirarchy Shirt

I love the simplistic design of this t-shirt...anything with animals or wildlife gets me!

Future Doctor Maternity Shirt 

This one is self-explanatory -- it's my life! (So I hope)

Crazy Dog T-Shirts was nice enough to send me a t-shirt of my choice from their website for review, so that I could share my opinions with you. I chose to review the "There, Their, They're, Thurr" T-shirt. 


This particular t-shirt can be found in the women's section of the Crazy Dog T-Shirts website. It really stood out to me because of its hilarious reference to the misuse of the English language. There are very few things in life that I am a stickler about, but grammar and proper spelling are definitely amongst them. Some people do not seem to understand (despite how many years of education they have received) that there are different variations of "there", appropriate in different sentences. This also happens with "your" quite often. I get so frustrated when I turn on the television or look in the newspaper and the editors have again missed the wrong use of one of these crucial words. My mom also finds it very annoying, so maybe I got it from her! It's what you could call a "pet peeve", I suppose. When I saw this shirt, it had my name written all over it. It was very hard to decide on a shirt, because there were quite a few that pertained to me and were humorous. Since I received the shirt, the link appears to have disappeared off of the Crazy Dog T-Shirts website, so I am unsure if they are discontinuing the shirt or just moving items around on the website. I can't provide you with a direct link to the shirt, so if you would like to purchase it, I suggest you contact the site administrators. I know that the shirt retailed for $16.99 or less, but I am unsure of the price when I selected it (sometimes their shirts go on sale for a period of time).

I ordered a medium because I didn't want the t-shirt to be too snug -- when I put it on, however, it was still pretty snug. That could be a mixture of my over-eating as of late and maybe Crazy Dog T-shirt's sizes running a little small. I also ordered the women's style, so I understand that these shirts have a tighter, body-forming fit by nature. If you are looking for a baggier t-shirt to wear to the gym or to lounge in, you might want to try your size in Men's. It won't be huge, but it won't be form-fitting, either. The first thing I noticed is how soft the material of my shirt was; it is very comfortable to wear for the entire day. I wore my shirt around the house to test it out, but I would gladly wear it to the store or to class. I will have many days where throwing on a t-shirt and some lounge pants will be the perfect no-hassle outfit for a long day at school. To be safe, I am going to hang my shirt up to dry so it does not shrink at all - right now, it is at a comfortable length and tightness and I do not want to ruin that in the dryer.

Anyone that saw my t-shirt (my friends, family, and boyfriend), thought it was really cute. Some graphic t-shirts or t-shirts with words on them can be annoying or lacking in humor, but the shirts at Crazy Dog T-Shirts are just the opposite. (You know some of those shirts at Wal-Mart that are just plain lame?) They have some unique, modern, and more inventive shirts that make them stand out in the industry. I think that my shirt will get a lot of compliments and laughs at school.

Here are some pictures - at first, I had to resort to the "mirror picture" because my boyfriend wasn't available to take my picture, but then I pulled him away from the computer. His pictures weren't perfect, so I chose the best ones. You get an idea of the fit of the shirt at least!
