Looking for a retro t-shirt
July 26, 2011 8:37 AM   Subscribe

I'm trying to find a retro (80s-ish) t-shirt with the Good Humor ice cream logo on it and not having any luck.

Unilever owns the Good Humor brand now and they don't seem to have a merchandise section. (If you go to their FAQ, they say "We’re sorry but at this time we do not have any promotional merchandise available to consumers. ") They did give away t-shirts in 2010, but I'm not sure if that's the right shirt.

I'm looking for the older logo like this on the shirt (small on chest, larger on back).

Short of trying to print my own, is there anyone selling such shirts ? I think I went through most of the 80s retro t-shirt web sites, but did not see the shirt I'm looking for.

You could try writing them (old-fashioned style with snail mail).

Dear [Good Humor customer service folks],

I really love the retro Good Humor logo [perhaps include photo, or sketch it so they know which one you're talking about]. It makes me remember those long, summer days of my childhood when the Good Humor man would drive through the neighborhood. My friends and I used to save up the change from our paper routes to buy ice cream. [Basically just put some schlocky, over the top, I-heart-your-brand nostalgia crap in there; they eat that stuff up.]

I have been searching in vain for a t-shirt with that logo on it, but can't seem to find one available for purchase anywhere! Do you happen to know where I could find an official Good Humor shirt? If you have any in stock, I would love to buy one!

Thank you!

Best-case scenario, they have a few extras lying around and send you one, gratis.

Worst-case scenario, they don't have any t-shirts (for purchase or to give away) and try to appease you with some coupons for free ice cream.

I've had a lot of good luck getting what I want by sending letters to companies, so you should definitely give it a shot.

Well, I gave it a shot, and ended up talking to a representative, but was told they don't have any branded/promotional shirts at this time. Bummer.
