T-Shirt Gift Guide:
So many firefighter gift options, where do you even start? Well, right here! T-shirts are the most popular firefighter purchased item and a gift giving favorite. Why? Firefighters dedicate themselves to risking their lives to save others and the Firefighting Brotherhood. They rely on each other for support and if in jeopardy, to save each other’s ass, literally. This selflessness and courage also bring well deserved pride. Thus, most firemen want to wear and be recognized off duty as well as on duty. There is no better way to show firefighter pride and be in support of the Firefighter brotherhood than a shirt.
We have outlined the t-shirt collections to assist you in finding the best gift for your Fireman!
This is our recommended place to start if you are not sure what your looking for! This collection is designed for all firefighters, no matter their rank, to wear. We have a wide variety of shirt categories included: Thin Red Line, Brotherhood, Fearless, Old School, Fire Rescue, and Patriotic. The Thin Red Line shirts are bold statements of honoring the firefighters that paid the ultimate sacrifice, showing the support of all firefighters, and showing the willingness and dedication to risk ones live to save another. TRL is an extremely popular style of shirt. Brotherhood apparel are for the firemen who are true believers in the fire fighting lifestyle. It’s not ‘just a job’ for these guys, they live and breathe their lifestyle and believe in keeping the brotherhood traditions alive. Next, the shirts classified as Fearless are those that are graphically designed the show the strength, courage and perseverance of firemen. Old School is for the classic man. These shirts bring you back to the Firefighting heritage, perfect for an experienced firefighter or old soul. Fire Rescue shirts are specifically for departments that offer rescue services and the equipment that is required. Most departments are now Rescue departments, however, we suggest that you double check this before choosing a Fire Rescue gift. Last, but surely not least, are the shirts with Patriotic feel to them. Whether that’s with the American Flag or saluting the 343 firefighters of September 11th, these tees will be appreciated by any freedom loving firefighter.
On the job shirts that are a must for most. Most guys and gals will need at least a couple of Duty T-Shirts available. We offer Fire Rescue, Dept, and IAFF duty shirts in the classic look and with the ability to customize. If you are not sure whether your gift receiver is Fire Rescue, we suggest the Fire Department duty tee for you, because “Fire Department” will be appropriate for any Fire fighter. Our IAFF duty shirts are for the International Association of Fire Fighters union members only. These are Professional paid firefighters who are also unionized. As a gift giver, Firefighter.com allows you to purchase IAFF apparel for your firefighter as long as they are IAFF union members. Firefighter.com is an Officially Licensed IAFF retailer and are committed to upholding the value and mission of the IAFF. Custom Duty shirts are available for Fire Rescue, Fire Dept and IAFF. Most firefighters like to customize their duty shirts with the last name and rank (Firefighter, Firefighter/EMT, Lieutenant, Chief, ect.) Although, we have many less so serious firefighters that customized with nicknames or sayings. We get some good laughs with some nicknames that get packed and shipped! The IAFF custom duty tee has an 3rd custom line available on the back of the shirt. This is typically for their Local Union Number. We have Duty long sleeves, hoodies, sweatpants and gym shorts that would pair perfectly with your gift. Click here: Other Apparel- Duty Apparel.
