Aggieland Outfitters Pulls Aggie SEC T-ShirtFeatured Stories, News Tuesday, April 17th, 2012
A mistake in the design of a Texas A&M University T-shirt promoting the move to the Southeastern Conference has resulted in a recall.
Aggieland Outfitters explained on their website “the original design was to reflect the SEC states before expansion on the front, and then refer to the addition of a “Texas style of football” on the back. That’s why Texas and Missouri were left off.”
“The original sketch did not have North Carolina on it, but when an artist drew the map, it was added by mistake.”
The shirts were pulled from their stores and website, and officials stated on the website “measures are in place to make sure that this sort of error does not happen again.”
The website message from Aggieland Outfitters also took the media to task. Quoting the website, “Many members of the media, especially those connected to other schools in Texas, have insinuated that Texas A&M made these shirts, and that Texas A&M doesn’t know geography. That’s simply not true. Aggieland Outfitters designed the shirt and simply made a mistake.”
