Tom Hanks Tweets True Herban to Millions

Don't Forget to Be Awesome - True Herban

Tom Hanks Tweets True Herban to Millions

Don’t Forget to Be Awesome. We at True Herban try never to forget that, and so does Tom Hanks. Last week we were in Boston, MA and came across a utility box with a sticker that read, “Don’t Forget to be Awesome”, and so we slapped a True Herban Clothing sticker right beneath it! We figured, we try to be awesome, so people should recognize that. Well last night, Tom Hanks recognized that and decided to tweet this picture of the sign and our sticker to his 3.6 Million Followers on Twitter.

This goes to show if you put yourself in the path of awesomeness, awesomeness is bound to pursuit. Tom Hanks didn’t see our True Herban sticker and say, “I need to tweet that!” but I like to believe that he respected the way we complimented the great sticker, and the balance our logo brought to the box, so chose to frame the picture with our True Herban Clothing sticker.

Thank you Tom Hanks. Thank you for being awesome.

Celebrate Black History Month


Black History Month is an observance of the history of the African diaspora in a number of countries outside of Africa. Since 1976, it is observed annually in the United States and Canada in February, while in the United Kingdom it is observed in October. In the U.S., Black History Month is also referred to as African-American History Month. Black History Month was begun as Negro History Week by historian Carter G. Woodson in 1926. His goal was to educate the American people about African-American history, focusing on African Americans‘ cultural backgrounds and reputable achievements.

T-shirt Spotlight: True Herban Crossroads

True Herban Crossroads represents choice, power and potential. In life we all have choices, responsibilities and possibilities. The choices we make determine the next moment and phase of our lives. That decision-making ability is our power. Even when we feel we are powerless, we have the power to choose. And because we have the power to choose, we have the potential to shape and guide our lives.. By choosing not to decide, you’re still making a choice. Within the design, straight lines, intersections, a circle curve and arrows pointing all ways effectively represent the choice, power and potential each of use possess.
