Chiles color the latest line of Crazy Shirts
food-dyed shirts and shorts.
And while the day that celebrates the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla is often celebrated with tequila and spicy food, how many of us actually don something representative of the memorable day?
Crazy Shirts has introduced a new line of tops and shorts dyed in real CHILE PEPPERS in a unique orange-red color, branded "Chile Dyed Hot Threads" on the sleeve, and finished with a tag that explains the dyeing process. Yes, real chiles are used in the dyeing process but mild ones to prevent irritation.
Imprinted on the shirts are designs like "Los Picosos," two virtual labels for "Dragon Brand Chile Sauce," and "Freak n' Hot Sauce."
The crew neck T-shirts are $24; the shorts with the embroidered logo are $36.
