Virgo the Virgin 100% Cotton T-shirt
Virgo the Virgin! (23 August - 22 September)
Virgo is an Earth sign ruled by Mercury (the messenger god and uh, planet!). People born under this sign are hard-working, practical and verrrry meticulous. They may not be naturally disposed to wearing their hearts on their sleeves, but they possess a depth of feeling and passion that come out in subtle and remarkable ways. On top of this, their ability to focus can make their personalities feel very intense. Virgo people have a very active inner life that, with their practical and methodical ways, can make them very successful in creative endeavours, not least because they have the patience, fortitude, and intense focus to work hard towards their goals. The only downside to this is their gigantic capacity to OVERTHINK things, and to overwork. Virgos also have a big talent for worrying, and left unchecked, can become wellsprings of self-generated anxiety that can really wear them down. Because Virgo people tend to have exacting standards for themselves, this makes them very effective in their endeavours, but they can come across as moody or overly-critical towards others at times when they forget that not everyone has the same level of perfectionism (they also tend to say things a little bluntly without realising that their obvious “facts” might actually come across as rude or hurtful). On the other hand, Virgo folks are extremely dependable, and that amazing patience, coupled with a natural tendency to enjoy and appreciate good friendships means that even if you have an argument with your Virgo friends, they will generally take some (likely very broody!) time, and come back to try again. Little things may irritate Virgos, and they may have a hard time being prised out of their set ways, but deep down they are generous, kind and loyal — it may take them some time to know best how to interact with some folks, but once they do, their expansive, warm hearts and affectionate natures can shine through, and they are wonderful and supportive friends and lovers.
A few famous Virgos (do you see any similarities?): Keith Flint, Avicii, Nick Cave, Sophia Loren, Michael Jackson, Mother Teresa, Jessie James, Buddy Holly, Colonel Sanders, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, Freddie Mercury, Amy Winehouse, Beyoncé, River Phoenix, Mary Shelley, Keith Moon, Peter Sellers, Keanu Reeves, Bill Murray, Bernie Sanders, Idris Elba, Stephen Fry, Otis Redding, Howard Zinn, Elisabeth I and Ivan the Terrible (to name only a few…)
Anyway! Astrological t-shirts for the Virgo in your life are here (if they prefer a V-neck, those are here, too)! Designed in the colours traditionally associated with each of the signs, Virgo graces the front of this one in yellow-green, slate grey, grey-grey and a hint of plum, presented together with the astrological symbol and a representation of the actual constellation in the sky! The back is printed with our glorious verdant triangle logo in a field of stars.

About the shirt itself:
- 150 g/m2 (4.5 oz per sq yd). 100% Cotton Preshrunk Ring Spun Jersey Knit (white contains polyester).
- Seamless double stitched 2cm neckband - not a floppy thing, it holds its shape well, even after constant wear and washing.
- Taped neck and shoulders for comfort and to keep it looking smart.
- 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).
- Quarter-turned for a supremely neat finish. Seriously, these are well made.
These make great gifts.
