About the OUTSpoken Black Muscle Tank with Black Ink
This tank says the words OUTSpoken in bold black letters, that sit across the chest. We created this shirt for a few reasons, and we've actually written a blog about the tank because this design is so important to us. If you'd like to read the blog post, head here. There are folks who are outspoken in various ways. Some speak up by telling everyone they can't what they think. Others prefer to act in a way that they think humans should act, but they don't talk about their beliefs. We also love the play on words with the word "outspoken." Strong Athletic is an LGBT+ company and similar to many people in our community, Nadia Kean, founder of Strong Athletic has her own coming out story. She now lives openly as a queer woman, unless she is in situations in which she doesn't feel safe in doing so. Being "out" as a queer person is a human right and it is also a privilege that not everyone in our community has. Within the fabric of this shirt and the ink that is printed on it, we send so many different messages every time we pull this shirt on over our shoulders. Enjoy. Join us.
The tank is a black marble by Bella Canvas muscle tank. On the front is the word "OUTSpoken" and the Strong Athletic logo, on the back is the Strong Athletic logo, all in black ink.
The OUTSpoken Muscle Tank was designed by Nadia Kean in the fall of 2017 and screen printed by hand by Amanda at the Austin Screen Printing Coop.
What Bella Canvas says about their tank:
A feminine version of the muscle tank, this must-have style is designed with our exceptionally soft poly-viscose fabrication that softly drapes around curves. The modern elongated armholes and curved bottom hem make it perfect for layering. Offered in a variety of solid and marble colors and more fabrications. The sizing of this shirt is sized to the average body size of a cis woman. If you wear shirts that are marketed to women, you will find the sizing to be in alignment to those styles, but if you wear shirts that are marketed to men, you will find these shirts to be a bit smaller.
