Destee-Nation Selection Guidelines

We use strict scientific methodology to determine which t-shirts we decide to offer for sale in our stores and on our website. Here is just a sampling of our considerations.

IF YOUR BUSINESS

  • is a historical landmark
  • offers a seriously cool t-shirt for sale, or used to, or wants to
  • is privately owned and operated
  • is favored by locals and tourists
  • is over 10 years old
  • is located in its own building
  • is a restaurant, bar, club, brewery, fishing boat, hardware store, coffee shop, donut shop, tattoo parlor, surf shop, biker bar, tobacco shop, music store, etc.
  • is painted pink all over
  • serves the coldest beer in town
  • has an awesome logo or exterior sign
  • has been patronized by real cowboys, riding horses
  • is in a travel destination area
  • has a dirt driveway

THEN YOUR BUSINESS may be immediately accepted as a Destee-Nation member—fill out our Suggest a Destee-Nation Form to fill us in. HOWEVER,

IF YOUR BUSINESS

  • is new within the last couple years
  • is NOT a restaurant, bar, club, brewery, fishing boat, hardware store, coffee shop, donut shop, tattoo parlor, surf shop, biker bar, tobacco shop, music store, etc.
  • is located in a strip mall or worse yet a shopping center with one of those food court places
  • is overseen by a group of attorneys
  • is part of a big chain or big brand
  • is operated by several levels of management
  • judges its employees by their level of flair
  • uses Helvetica in its logo
  • claims to be the best at everything
  • seeks to snag the tourists’ cash but doesn’t care about the locals
  • needs serious logo work
  • operates out of Muskogee, Oklahoma, or Ainsworth, Nebraska for that matter

THEN YOUR BUSINESS is probably NOT Destee-Nation material.

Please understand these are only guidelines. And our t-shirt scouts live by them. However, they do review each application on a case by case basis and have been known to be influenced by a cold beer, or three.
