Saving Detroit - one T Shirt at a time

Aug '08
Robert Dempster just returned from a store where he received roaring applause. As a well-known musician, Dempster is accustomed to a jubilant reception, but this time it was not for his music, but for his T-Shirt.

Dempster was wearing one of his company's 'Save Detroit!' T-Shirts featuring Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick behind prison bars.

With the beleaguered Detroit Mayor's legal woes now including jail time and the threat of more jail time, the T-Shirts are more popular than ever.

The rest of the day saw similar reactions to the T-Shirt. An otherwise routine morning of running errands culminated in Dempster leading a small convoy of people eager to get their own 'Save Detroit' T-shirt to his store to purchase 'Save Detroit' T-Shirts.

"In my 30 plus years designing and selling shirts, I have never had a shirt that generated this much international attention," said Dempster from his Royal Oak store.

Even a visit to the prestigious PGA Championship at Oakland Hills led to a reception usually reserved for a hole in one.

"People actually left the PGA so they could follow me to the store and buy T-Shirts. This is just crazy," commented Dempster.

Dempster, all too familiar with having a hit on his hand, has ordered his production department to stock their inventory with an unprecedented amount of shirts.

"We're getting calls from all over the place and our web site, has been getting orders around the clock," said Dempster.

Robert Dempster's love for Detroit and its people and future is what makes this T Shirt connect. "Everyone just wants to move on and get back to revitalizing our great city. If my T-Shirts help in that process, I am absolutely thrilled," said Dempster.
