Note while some designs are instrument specific, most are not. Ladies, there are shirts cut just for you, and fyi the "dark shirts" come in multiple colors. Also, we are working hard to give you more text color options! More designs are always in the works, so check back often. And please be sure to check out my book, Real Men Don't Rehearse, my family concerts (Peter VS the Wolf), also videos on my website and my blog at justinlocke.com!
Okay, below you will find a fun little tour of a few samples to browse through. Fyi, clicking on a design will make dozens of options appear at right, on shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and so on. Also, for your convenience, all designs are listed above. New items are being added constantly! These are perfect gifts for the musician who has everything . . . or nothing! Also, if you haven't already done so, be sure to check out my book, "Real Men Don't Rehearse"!
Okay, here we go: Nothing leads to success quicker than lowered expectations! When you walk in wearing this first shirt, everyone will be thrilled with you no matter what you do:
Note, "Dark" shirts are available in many other colors.

Next: We have all known the misery of having a conductor who will actually ask the bass section for things like articulations and vibrato and all sorts of other things that I could never remember how to do. If you suffer from this problem, a simple gesture to the pithy text on this t-shirt or sweatshirt may be all you need to save the day:
Next up: Are you scheduled to play Bartok's Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celeste next week? Or worse, are you playing one of those contemporary pieces where the part looks more like stereo instructions than sheet music? Then you can't afford to go to rehearsal without one of these:
Next: You've been through it a thousand times: a stand partner, or maybe even more annoying, a cello player in front of you, saying "Ewwwww! That B flat was OUT OF TUUUUNE!!!" Well, always remember, justifiable homocide is a dodgy defense, and besides, it will be much less messy to just wear one of these two items:
Or even better:
Okay, we've all been there-- that starnge bizarre portal into the fourth dimension where time becomes meaningless-- I am referring, of course, to a Bruckner Symphony Rehearsal. To create an ilusion of time moving again, may we suggest the following divertissement
And the following two t-shirts, well, hopefully you can find lots of places to wear them:
