Leo the Lion 100% Cotton V-Neck T-shirt
Leo the Lion! (23 July - 22 August)
Just as the Lion is often said to be the King of the Savannah, those born under the Fixed Fire sign Leo, ruled by the Sun itself, really are larger-than-life leaders (just have a peek at the list of famous Leos that follows, and you’ll see what I mean). The stereotypes for this star sign seem to be more prominently true (maybe because Leo is a “fixed” sign) for Leo people than they are for folks born under most other signs. Generous and kind-hearted to a fault, Leos tend to be great givers to the people around them. Because of their confidence and sense of “owning” the situations in which they find themselves, Leos delight in bringing their friends and loved ones along for the adventure. They’re passionate and confident, but also extremely determined, which makes them the kind of strong leaders that lots of people want to follow, and whom they know will actually get things done, and do them right. Leos are generally aware of their own strengths, and this can make them fall into arrogance and give them a hard time accepting even valid and constructive criticism. Their take-charge enthusiasm, high expectations and standards (which they might well apply to everyone as well as themselves) can come across as pushy, self-centred or even cutthroat to more timid people who don’t know them very well. Their honesty can border on brutal, and despite their seemingly boundless energy, Leos too can get bogged down in doing too much and being the go-to person that everyone else relies on. It’s not always easy for them to ask for help because holding themselves to extremely high standards, they feel like other people hold them to those, too, and never want to let anyone down. Leos can also be prone to naiveté, and might easily believe everything the “yea-sayers” around them (who are attracted by their lavishly supportive spirits) tell them. Despite these pitfalls, Leos’ charisma and willingness to work hard to achieve their (often very lofty) goals, paired with an intense passion that would exhaust some people born in other signs, their generous support and recognition of the talents and special qualities they see in the people around them, and their open willingness to communicate about their own needs along the way make them some of the most successful people ever to grace this planet.
Get ready for a stellar list of famous Leos: Napoleon Bonaparte, Amelia Earhart, Benito Mussolini, Erwin Schrödinger (and his cat, maybe), Fidel Castro, Mata Hari, Neil Armstrong, Lucille Ball, Louis Armstrong, Henry Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Madonna, Mae West, J.K. Rowling, Robert De Nero, Coco Chanel, Barack Obama, Whitney Houston, T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia), Beatrix Potter, Mick Jagger, Usain Bolt, Doc Holliday, Jennifer Lopez, Aldous Huxley, Alex Haley, Meghan Markle, Robert Redford, Andy Warhol, Herman Melville, Samuel Goldwyn, Henri Nestlé, Carl Jung, Martha Stewart, Louis Vuitton, Gary Larson, Malcolm Forbes, and George Soros (and we could go on and on… that’s only a fraction of the very, very very famous people who are Leos!!)
Anyway! Astrological t-shirts for the Leo in your life are here (if they prefer a round-neck, those are here, too)! Designed in the colours traditionally associated with each of the signs, Leo commands the front of this one in reddish amber, greenish yellow, green-grey and slate, presented together with the astrological symbol and a representation of the actual constellation in the sky! The back is printed with our golden triangle logo in a field of stars.
Available in (US) Sizes: S,M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL.
Please check the super-useful size chart, and measure against your own most comfortable t-shirt for the perfect comfy fit. (Sizes are measured in the chart in inches.)
About the shirt itself:
- 160 g/m2 (4.5 oz per sq yd). 100% Cotton Preshrunk Ring Spun Jersey Knit.
- Ribbed "vintage" style v-shaped neck. So comfortable!
- Double-stitched sleeves and bottom hems for strength and durability. You can do anything in this shirt (well, don't wrestle alligators in it, maybe, but then that would tear just about any cotton t-shirt. And don't let your dogs tear it to bits either! Especially if you're still in it!).
- Quarter-turned for a supremely neat finish. Seriously, these are well made.
