Throwback design by InkAndBrandy

We are stoked to announce a new collection of shirts featuring a throwback design recalling the first shirt design, which was available for Christmas 1991 just in time for the first Worcester NYE, that featured the trademark "beanie" fish surrounded by colorful children's wood-block type reading PHISH NET (the emphasis on the dot came later).

Artist Brandy Davis (aka @smilercontrol) donated her time to create the beautiful designs for the front (shown above) and back of the new shirt to celebrate the band's first 40 years and recognize for the wide range of resources and community it has provided for decades. She has been a long time visitor to since before she began using her talent to create special works that first focused on favorite songs before evolving to celebrate other aspects of the Phish experience as well. From the beginning, her posters were adored within this community as well as everywhere on lots across the country. Explore more of her exciting work at her website and follow her on your socials!

We are excited to offer Ts in a variety of colors as well as a long-sleeve T, crewneck sweatshirt, and hoodie as well! Visit this online store to purchase or keep reading for more details and pictures!

Printed on some of Gildan's best blanks, including a women's Ts and tank, this features a hybrid screen/digital print to get all the colors and gradients to look correct. It's a water-based screen-print base layer with a digital color print on top. The touch on the print is really soft, and they wash well.

All net proceeds from every purchase directly support the Mbird's music education grantmaking, which now totals $2.4 million, and the first 40 orders get a special sparkly sticker also designed by Brandy!

The T-shirts are available in three colors: Seafoam, Dark Green, and Charcoal Gray, as well as in 100% white ideal for custom tie-dyes. The long sleeve T is black, while the crewneck sweatshirt is Dark Heather, and the hoodie is antique sapphire.

kevinAreHollo Y'all don't get enough credit! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping build this amazing community and offering us a place to gather virtually in a shared love of this quirky band of weirdos. Happy holidays to all my Phish brethren.

jackl Wow, really impressed with the design and quality production, thanks Brandy @smilercontrol! Thanks for stepping up to the plate here and reinvigorating the .net shirt tradition.

My wife Kat and I bought several T-s and hoodies and hope to be wearing them to some shows. I occasionally wear the 1994 tie-die “globe” net shirt (but admit to karma whoring it a bit more for wearing my 1993 Pollocks which get much more instant recognition, admiration and free hugs :-)

Gotta give just a word too and shout out to Matt Lawrence, the designer of the original shirts Brandy used as source art. Matt was also a Phishnet volunteer, and in addition to being a talented artist was also a musician, bass player for the Amherst based jam band “yeP!” which Kat and I also followed back in the 1.0 day.
