Slow Death Long Sleeve Tee
The new “Slow Death” Tee is your wearable reminder that your life is your own story to write, the pen is in your hands and the clock is tickin’. Read on to catch the heart of this piece and what a “Slow Death” means to us. Wear it out.
He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
He who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "i’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
He who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
He who abandons a project before starting it, who fails to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.
Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.
This is a poem by Brazilian writer and journalist, Martha Medeiros. We posted it in a blog on May 19th, 2019 as our best explanation of what the "Don't Die" part of GFDD means to us.
Three years later it's still our most shared, most read blog post and we thought we'd share its content with you today. We hope you take some time this week with each line and decide how it challenges your story.
The goal, for us, is not a slow life or a swift death - it's to live the longest, "fastest" life with as few dead moments as possible.
Are there any slow deaths you are allowing in your life?
What would it mean or look like to replace those moments with more LIFE?

Rad shirt. Very comfortable and just what I want/need during the cooler days and nights. I’d like to see more designs offered in the long sleeve option. Go fast, don’t die…. and make good choices!
My package came in on time and I absolutely love it. The checkered design along with the smoothness of the pants are top notch. I haven’t worn them yet but I’m looking forward to it! :)
material and quality is amazing i wear it all the time! sleeves aren’t as giving at the rest of the hoodie but it fits well i sized up to a L to get a baggy look !
I would liked it to be a bit thicker.
These are fantastic “ride a wheelie on your mini bike with a beer in your hand pants!”! Casual, comfy, stylish. They are made of decent material. I don’t think they’ll fall apart in the wash. The fit is roomy and comfortable. And the waist is strong enough that they do t fall down with my phone and pocket knife I. The pockets. 10/10. Great fun get.
Ordered this hat, order came in quickly. Emailed over a question I had, the team at GFDD replied promptly and notified me they were shipping another hat! I didn't even request a new hat, the team just made it happen, demonstrating they champion a quality customer experience.
Bought for my husband. He loves how light it is. Super comfy! TTS. Great design!!
Absolutely love this shirt?
So soft. And it’s been washed tons of times and has not cracked or faded
Wish the Brit started flatter, but I still love the hat!
The title is the review, and the review is what the title says . Smilage is the Title
The patch is great! I stitched it into a leather tote bag I made not long ago and it’s the perfect subtly existential reminder to be present.
Coolest company out there. Very nice quality gear, I love my shirts from GFDD! Best stickers for your moto too
Nice sticker! Fast shipping.

It's such a great shirt I bought my sister one. She doesn't understand the joke and that's ok.
