By LOUISE BECKER, Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — It’s the first time the word “teddy” has been used in the same sentence as “dress.”
It’s also the first “tent” in the entire history of the phrase “tents” to be created.
In this week’s issue of the New York Times Magazine, Teddy and his friends, Tuff and Tuff, make their own T-shirts.
The first T-shirts came from a single woman in Chicago in 1980, when she made them out of cardboard and some duct tape.
A year later, she came up with a clever twist.
Instead of the usual cotton and wool t-shirt, she put a bunch of fleece and knit a few buttons into the shape of a giant tent.
The garment quickly became a household name, but Tuff still had some tricks up his sleeve.
For one, the fleece was too light.
The two-toned fabric, which he said he made himself, had to be stretched, pulled out and woven into a shape that would allow the fleeci to fit inside.
For that, he needed some kind of adhesive.
He got it from a friend, a friend of a friend.
The friend then got Tuff to make a few of his own.
When he got his first t-shirts, they were sold out, but they quickly became popular enough to be made into an entire line.
A second line, made from a similar material, is sold out as well.
The company Tuff makes his own now makes nearly all of his products in-house, except for the ones he sells through specialty retailers like American Apparel.
Tuff says his clothing has become synonymous with the word tent.
He sees the word as a sign of his pride in his work.
He says it’s a word he learned early on in life that helped define the brand, as well as a way of saying, “I can do what I want.”
“I want to take the word to the next level, to the level of the T-Tee, and I think the word itself has been the biggest thing that helped me make the company what it is today,” Tuff said.
“That’s what we’re all about, and that’s what this company is about.
I think that’s why we do what we do, to make people feel good about the things they wear.”
To make a tent, Truff’s crew first laid out a few hundred square feet of cardboard.
Then they rolled the cardboard up, wrapped it around the tent and taped it down.
The cardboard is then wrapped in a sheet of fleeci and wrapped in duct tape and left to dry overnight.
A few days later, the tent is rolled out and the Tuff crew cut a bunch out of it, cut out the buttons, and stuffed the tents into bags.
The tents are then shipped to the manufacturer in South Carolina.
Tuff says he’s happy with the results.
“It’s really nice to be able to make something like that for people who are interested in the tent industry,” Tuf said.TUFF’S TAILORS Tuff is not the first tent maker to make his own t-tents.
Earlier this year, the company Beadle made a series of T-Shirts out of some of the same materials.
But Beadles tents, unlike Tuffs, are made from recycled paper, which Tuff believes will keep the product environmentally friendly.
The first of these tents went on sale in September and sold out quickly.
The T-tent concept has been around since the 1960s, when a British businessman named David Beadled made a pair of pants that he called “toys.”
The T-tailors name came from the fact that the trousers were made of cotton, which is more durable than wool.
Tuffed trousers also had the distinctive tuck pattern, which Beadler thought was important because it kept the trousers warm when they were worn.
In the 1980s, Beaded expanded his line into other types of clothing, including the “T-shirt,” which he called a “toy garment.”
Tuff’s tent is not his first design venture into the world of clothing.
In 1997, he launched a line of Tuff hats.
He now sells more than 30 different hats and other accessories, including hats made from materials he used in his first tent, and hats that are made with recycled fabric.
Tuf also owns a company called The Beadlers, which makes clothes that are designed by designers like Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger.
He’s also on the board of directors for the American Applesoft Foundation, which helps small businesses create and maintain the clothing they use in their stores.
Truff says he is thrilled to see so many people using his t-tags.
“I’m very happy that I can wear them,” he said.
“I’m not wearing
