Motivating Seafarer T-Shirts

This Sailor T-Shirt Helps You Weather the Storm

— November 6, 2013 — Special
This sailor t-shirt by Sean McCabe helps put struggle into perspective. The shirt, which features an anchor illustration reads "a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor." The next time you find yourself in troubled waters, remember that the experience is aiding in your self-improvement. After all, it's widely known that hardship builds character.

Don't get down on yourself just because things aren't going as swimmingly as they could be. In fact, you can use your adversity to your advantage, because if there's one thing you have over the trust fund babies and silver-spoon glitterati, it's your skills at navigating the turbulent waters of life.

This unisex shirt is printed on a poly-cotton and rayon blend American Apparel tee. If you need a little bit of grounding, this anchor shirt is a perfect reminder that you're doing you're best.
