Stay Gold Tee (The Outsiders + Robert Frost)

$29.99

This tee was inspired by our latest reading of S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders and our love of Robert Frost. If you've never heard of either one, you still might have heard the iconic line, "Stay gold, Ponyboy." Well, here's the original poem, for your enjoyment:

"Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Isn't it marvelous? We think so, too. This unisex tee in oxblood black features the closing lines of Robert Frost's poem, which entered the public domain in 2019.

Care instructions:
For best results, machine-wash cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors. Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You shouldn't use any fabric softeners or dry-clean the items.

DTG-printed apparel can be tumble-dried on a low cycle, but hang-dry works best. When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out. Don't iron the print.
