A notorious serial killer t-shirt available in black or white cotton.
The Collector - Bob Berdella T-Shirt is inspired by the infamous American serial killer who who kidnapped, raped, tortured, and murdered at least six young men in Kansas City, Missouri, between 1984 and 1987.
Born on January 31, 1949, Robert Andrew Berdella Jr. ran a store in Westport Flea Market, selling all manner of curios and unusual items, called Bob's Bazaar Bizarre.
Beginning in 1984, Berdella abducted several young men, imprisoning them at his home where he would torture, rape and ultimately murder them, keeping a grim log of every act of depravity and recording his victims suffering with scores of polaroid photographs.
At 1:00 a.m. on March 29, 1988, Berdella abducted his last victim, a 22-year-old male prostitute named Christopher Bryson. After several days of abuse at the hands of Berdella, Bryson managed to leap, naked but for a dog collar, from the second storey of Berdella's house and escape, reaching the safety of the local police who eventually arrested Berdella.
Ultimately Bob Berdella plead guilty to two counts of first degree murder and four counts of second degree murder, receiving a life sentence. Berdella died in prison at the age of 43.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
