The original and still the best. I picked this up recently from Andrea, the same guy who sold me the Contempt shirt. Straight Edge clothing companies sure don't make em like they used to. The first in a long line of great shirts produced by the Andrew Thomas Company...speaking of which does anyone know who ran ATC (was there an Andrew Thomas?)? Curiousity...

Chris Sleboda of Pittston, Pa had the ATC. Last I talked to him, he had just finished Yale design school. Great guy and cool ideas from that fella.

Oh yeah! That was my fave shirt for a long time. Size XXL. I bought so many shirts from them...Taco Bell SXE, Drug Free Stormtrooper, Sweathogs SXE...great shirts!

I agree, there are no current SXE shirt companies that can touch A.T.C. and Cabal for cool designs and great shirts. I miss them.

nice! i still have this one, XXL as well, plus the taco bell rip off. i ahd a few others aswell but those were the best. i got a bootleg wide awake shirt from him too. this was when there was still a sense of fun with straight edge stuff. now you see sxe shirts and its all bats and brass knucks and tougher-than-you slogans. can't stand it.

Haha! Great call back! Andrew Thomas was Chris Sleboda's dad's name: Andrew Thomas Sleboda. Named the company after his dad in honor of his work ethic, I believe the story was. I still have my Taco Bell Straight-Edge shirt somewhere size XXXXXXXL makes for a cozy night shirt.

i still have one Andrew Thomas shirt, it says, "It's Okay To Be Non-Violent" in huge letters on the back and a little crest on the front. great company, had some of the best stuff back in the day.
