“Back in my day…”
“Get off my lawn!”“
No matter the generation, or the people saying it, there has always been phrases in our lexicon to let people know that they are out of touch.
It’s a pretty strong bet that if we wanted to subtitle our website, Mondo Monster Wear, it could easily be geezer wear (although we prefer Geekwear). I mean let’s face it, the majority of our items are based on pop-culture that took place in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Get Smart, The Odd Couple, The Honeymooners, Star Trek were staples of prime time decades ago. Now? Poster children for late night reruns.
Mondo Monster Wear was founded because of our love for those shows. We couldn’t find T-shirts that honored our favorite shows or other pop culture references. So, we made up a company that created those items. The ironic thing about our product line, is because of the popularity of the shows in reruns, and the movies playing on classic movie channels, is that a younger generation of people have been purchasing more and more of our items.
Whether you’re a Trekkie or a Trekker, age should not come in to play when choosing one of our shirts. We have shirts that are parities of the original series, next generation and even Deep Space Nine.
Star Wars has been a vibrant presence in our pop culture zeitgeist for over 40 years. It’s why our mash-up shirts are big sellers and popular amongst millennial purchasers. We even jumped into several items for The Mandalorian.
How do you explain that our most popular shirts are from the Bad News Bears and Sanford and Son? Frankly, no clue. Why ask why?
So enjoy your shirts. Be a boomer. Or be a millennial. Do what you wanna do because you want to do it.
