I worked for Bread and Circus Whole Foods Market for a few years at the turn of the century. Every once in awhile, the managers would roll around a cart full of t-shirt or sweatshirts and every employee would get one. It was a nice perk. I’ve been wearing this one for a good ten years now, much longer than I ever worked for the company. I’ve held on to it because it’s easy to throw on over anything, and, it’s a reminder of my time at the Fresh Pond Bread and Circus. The color has faded a bit, but it was always a weird shade of blue. I suspect they may have gotten a discount on a bad dye lot. There are bleach stains and oil stains and paint from projects and at least one hole. The neck is frayed and the sweatshirt just keeps on trucking.
