Horace Long – The Bearded Heart

Hey, I’m Horace.  I create tees for people who secretly yearn for some really Damn Fine T-Shirts! Each shirt is sprinkled with a whole lotta love, a dash of sarcasm and  chock-full of absurdities. These Tees will make you feel like a super-model luxuriating in a bath of ecstasy!

When I’m not figuring out what absurd things I can hand screen on a t shirt, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the creatures in my salt-water aquarium stay alive, or traveling to exotic locals.

If you’re dying to know more, here are some things you might not know about me… I was a radio DJ at 14 years of age, I lived in South Korea for two years teaching English to little kids, and I wear Olivia Pope Underoos!

Stay in touch by signing up to my newsletter, I hate spam too, so I only send out one newsletter a month. In it you’ll get exclusive coupons, sneak peeks at upcoming designs and products, and other fun and absurd things!


All shirts hand screen printed in North Carolina on 100% pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton t-shirts.
