Out of Print Clothing Holiday gift Guide 


Every once in awhile I work with a company I am already familiar with and LOVE.  Such is the case with Out of Print Clothing.  At this point I own their Long Sleeve Poe's Raven Shirt, Call of the Wild Sweater, Where the Wild things are Sweater, Alice in Wonder Land Tee, Catch 22 and my newest addition the Library Stamp fleece sweater.
Now if you read the list of items I own I'm sure you caught onto the fact they are all book/poem titles.  And if you know me at all you know I am an obsessive reader.  I read everything from classic, paranormal, historical, sci-fi, poetry, contemporary, biography, mysteries and everything in between.
I love to read, so it is no mystery I love a clothing shop whom clothing features some of my classic favorites.  Now I own several items for myself, but they also have men and children items.
They have so much to choose from too, long sleeve, fleeces, tees, bags, socks, notebooks, totes and so much more.
"Each product is treated to feel soft and worn like a well-read book."
As someone whom has many worn, dogged eared, broken from being open so many time spines I had to smile at this.  My books aren't "ruined" they are worn :)

So lets focus more on the item I was able to review:

LIBRARY STAMP - WOMEN'S FLEECE

Express your love for libraries in this vintage library stamp-inspired long sleeve. 
Product Details 
Super soft blended fleece 
Front kangaroo pocket
 Ribbed hem finish 
Softened print 
Color: gray 
Size & Fit Fits true to women's sizing 
And the purchase of this fleece sends one book to a community in need 
As a kid and even as an adult the library is one of my favorite places.  To be surrounded by books and have endless stories to be read, is a book lover's heaven.  So I adore the cute library stamp design. 
My library has switched to a digital system so they no longer use the stamps, but as I look at the shirt it reminds me of when I was a kid standing on my tiptoes to give the librarian my books.  She would take out her stamper stamp a date and hand it back to me.
I would then open it to look at the dates it was checked out prior to me.  I even remember in school (When we also had to write our names) checking out the names to see who else read the book.
For me this shirt brings back so many memories of days spent reading in my room, of walking through my library and getting excited over find my next adventure.
And of little tiny me standing on her tiptoes reaching out to get the infamous library date stamp. 

The shirt has meaning, unlike most of the items in my closet.  
So for those of you wondering, well that is great, but tell us more about the quality.
So the fact I own several items should speak volumes about the standard of clothing offered by Out Of Print Clothing.
I will point out a few things I think I love most

Softness - The fleece inside is super soft and warm.  Last year I wore my two fleece sweaters nonstop and was always impressed that even after several washes they kept their softness.

No Tags-  All of the shirts features no tags.  So I don't have to worry about annoying rubbing.  To be honest these are my favorite shirts to read in.  I hate being distracted when I'm reading and having something poke me in the back is so annoying, I don't have that issues with Out of Print Clothing.

Durability - Now I can't comment about this shirt see as I just got it, but I can say all the other items I own have held up to multiply washings, my 4 year old's constant tugging and has never stretched out no matter how many times I've worn them.  So yes A+ for durability.

Style - If you are a book lover like me this is so your style.  They fit true to size.  Men have their sports team shirts, kids have their band tees and now we finally have something too!  The shirt I reviewed does come in other colors.

As I mentioned the Library Stamp Fleece is one of many items offered they have so much more and will make the perfect holiday gift to any book lover.
