Default Rocket T-Shirts

Comrades:

SWMBO wants to know how many of you have rocket building/flying t-shirts. I am lead to believe that after a certain age, men should not have graphic t-shirts, an age which I have apparently past. Seems like its not OK or at least geekier than usual to wear a rocket t-shirt when you take the kids to launch. And most certainly not OK when being seen with her on weekend errands.

I attached some pictures. These are from various sources. The kids got me the Lego Space shirt and my cousin sent me the Yuri's Night from Europe (she lives there). Some do need to be sent to the thrift store, but today is not that day.

So post a picture or at least describe some rocket t-shirts in your wardrobe.

I still have a NASA meatball shirt my kids got me a couple years ago. My son works for Lockheed so I have an F-22 shirt. Most of my t-shirts do have graphics, but they are work related.

That Rocketdyne shirt is cool and nobody that isn't a space buff would have enough sense to know it's nerdy.

AWESOME!!! The R.M.R. T-shirt ripoff fiasco that some suckers are probably still waiting for refunds for.

He sure has been LYING low since he got kicked out of (or not let into) the Old Rocketeer Reunion for not paying like everyone else did. But that's historically typical.
