FAQ: What Does ODG mean?
Ever heard of Charles Spurgeon? Our first shirt ever was our Charles Spurgeon Gangster T-Shirt.
Charles Spurgeon was a bold & powerful pastor who is known for his eloquent & fiery style of preaching. Some even called him the Prince of Preachers.
In college, my friends and I used to refer to him (and others like him!) as OGs, original gangsters or ODGs for old dead guys.
We had grown tired of the famous pastors of today who are sometimes a little too fluffy, preaching a message that is watered down & bleh. But not these guys (and girls!). They were bold. They were powerful. They spoke with fervor & zeal!
That's why we call them the OGs... or the ODGs, old dead guys.
There is something different you experience when you read sermons & books by these ODGs, you see men & women who knew God differently.They spoke as though they really knew God. This is why we call them the ODGs.
Old dead guys (or gangsters!) whichever you prefer!
FAQ: Why don't you have crosses, bible verses, or obvious Christian symbols in your designs?
We don't want our designs & apparel to be bold for us. We want to be bold. We want to have real conversations with real people about the good news of Jesus.
That doesn't happen when they look at a religious, obviously Christian t-shirt. They just walk on by. But when we can have someone engage with a design and ask the question, "What does that mean?"
Now, the fun starts.
