            Item Description

            We launched Restless Wears a T-Shirt company for music lovers during lockdown as we were unable to put on live music events. We had some great ideas for T-Shirts but never expected a psychedelic bear's face with the words "I Prefer their Earlier Stuff" to sell so many.

            Why a Bear T-Shirt Design ?


            The Bear is feared and admired for its strength & confidence as well as being able to stand against adversity and be a natural leader. It also emphasis the importance of taking rest and solitude. I'm sure so many of us would consider those values appealing in our own lives.

            The bear is an animal that lives a solitary life. Having a bear as a spirit animal can mean that you find balance and comfort in solitude. The presence of this power animal could point to the need to “regroup” and set up boundaries, so you feel comfortable in your own space. It may be a call to find time away from the crowd or busyness and favor quiet time and rest

            Fun Fact : Bear's have their own favourite trees and will walk for miles just to scratch their backs on them


            I prefer the earlier stuff is something that so many of us have said during conversations about bands. But why? When we ask people usually the answer splits people 2 ways depending on if you give emotional based responses or factual responses.

            Emotional based response groups would swear by the fact that artists write their most relatable songs when they too are facing the same struggles as the audience. The songs have that element that connects us as people and all the grit and impurities are still on the record. Its often a darker and more personal sound as the artists bear's their soul

            Factual based response's will tell you that they have been practicing these songs longer together and have toured with them, so they have perfected this sound by the time the debut album arrives. Along with the fact we wouldn't be asking the question if the earlier stuff was rubbish as the reference would be invalid.

            Some people will swear by the fact that as the band becomes more popular, the pressures from the Labels and Publishers mean they are no longer writing music personally and are now writing for a larger crowd they would like, not the fans that fell for them in the first place. Either way we are all grateful that these bands have gifted us these earlier offering

            Care Instructions


            If you want to make sure your T-Shirt stays as Vibrant as possible we have a few tips for keeping your garment bright and vibrant.
            The screen-printing process we carry out is done via hand and is prepared with love, We have chosen this method as we have always preferred the look and feel of Screen-printed items.
             In the busy world, most people want to take care of tasks like laundry as quickly as possible. Read on to learn some helpful dos, don’ts, and details about caring for screen-printed garments.
            • Definitely wash screen-printed garments inside out. This protects the printed surface from abrasions from other items sharing the washer.
            • Wash with items made of the same (or similar) fabrics to decrease pilling and lint transferring.
            • Use a mild detergent when washing.
            • Always wash in cool water. All water temperatures below 90° Fahrenheit are safe.
            • Hand-wash the garment if possible or use the washing machine’s gentle cycle.
            • Hang the garment or lay it flat to dry.
            • Use a cool iron, if necessary, and always iron inside out.
            • Don’t dry clean screen-printed items. The chemicals in the dry cleaning process can cause spotting or staining.
            • Avoid bleach, especially chlorine bleach; the agents in bleach will discolor fabric threads and the ink of the image.
            • Do not use fabric softener on screen-printed garments. Fabric softeners degrade the ink used in the screen-printing process and
            • causes cracking and/or fading of the ink.
            • If ironing do not use steam.
            Pilling: The idea that only poor quality clothing will pill is a just a popular myth. All fabric regardless of quality has the potential for pilling. Friction the garment endures from wearing or washing causes pilling. The friction loosens the fabric’s fibers and pulls them away from the fabric. The fibers then form fuzzy balls or “pills” on the surface of the garment. A hand held fabric shaver can help eliminate pills, but turning a screen-printed garment inside out before washing is a better way to prevent them.
            Hard water: The minerals found in hard water are an enemy of screen-printed garments. The minerals deposit in the fibers of the fabric and cause the fabric to become stiff. Hard water degrades the inks and the colours tend to fade or run. The same minerals also increase pilling of the fabric. Aside from purchasing a water softening system, the best way to protect screen-printed garments is to soak them in a gallon of water mixed with one cup of white vinegar prior to washing.
            Preventing laundry mishaps that ruin your garments is not difficult, but it does require attention to a few details. Use these tips and keep favorite items looking great.
