Skeeter’s

$29.50

Old-school saloon-keepers and diner owners are a dying breed. And when it comes to the history and the man behind Skeeter’s Big Biscuits in Old Gainesville, you really can’t make this stuff up folks. Asher “Skeeter” Sullivan opened the original Skeeter’s on the edge of town on Hawthorne Rd in 1975. Record stores, bellbottoms and mustaches ruled the day back then. After a kitchen screw-up resulted in Frankenstein-sized biscuits, the gimmick was formed that would propel Skeeter’s to the top of the campy-country-hangover-grub joints, and grateful college kids rewarded him with their loyalty. Soon needing a bigger spot, Sullivan moved the business to the vacant Walgreen’s store on 13th Street, and added goofball entertainment and stayed open 24 hours. And while most patrons were too “impaired” to notice the sub-par food, the place sold tons of eggs, hash browns, sausage and more...and it was delicious as it was after midnight and greasy and perfect! After about 10 years or so, Asher sold Skeeter’s and went on to open the uber-classy “Café Risque” off I-75 in Micanopy…which some would say was a fitting final chapter to an original Gainesville character and entrepreneur.

Read This to Hekp You Pick the Right Tee!

In an effort to offer as many options as possible, we've got a few styles and fabric weight, materials, etc, for you to choose from. Here's a little more info on the various options you see in the pull-down menu on our product pages. Hope it helps! And as always, if you have a question, please reach out via the MESSAGE US box below):

Fabric details:

  • Men's Lightweight T-shirt - Our most popular options are the Lightweight Heather (a blend of cotton and poly for a little more "stretch") and Lightweight Cotton (100% cotton) options. These run true to size, so you can feel comfortable ordering your normal size. These are brands like Canvas and Next Level. Similar to the more high-end "fashion" tees you see at Banana Republic. High-quality stitching and weaving create a light-feeling fit while wearing. 100% ring-spun cotton (Heather colors are 35% cotton/65% polyester). The heather blends have a slight stretch to them and are very lightweight, super soft, and will not shrink.

  • Ladies Racerback Tank - These are a featherweight, but very sturdy "triblend" fabric blending 50% polyester, 25% combed ring-spun cotton, and 25% rayon. Extremely lightweight and just the right amount of stretch.

  • Ladies Regular-fit T-shirt - Tapered-cut for women. 100% combed ring-spun cotton (Heather colors are 35% cotton/65% polyester). Cap sleeves, tapered through the torso, thinner, slight scoopneck collar. A true ladies-cut! They run a tad small, so order up if you prefer a little more room but still want a real ladies-cut shirt.

  • Thermal Hoodie50% cotton/ 50% polyester. Warm, fleece-lined. Perfect weight and size. Run true to size. Great for smashing it on Game Days...or any day it's a bit cool out!

  • Men's Long Sleeve T-shirt - 100% cotton, slightly-fitted, but not overly so. Pretty true to size. Very soft, ringspun cotton.

  • Men’s Heavyweight T-shirt100% cotton (Heather colors are 90% cotton/10% polyester). Choose this if you want a heavier weight, feel. Heavier weight and "boxier" cut than the Lightweight tees. We use the desciptor "heavyweight" to denote the weight-feel of this option is thicker than our two "Lightweight" options (see below). Choose this option is you want an old-school, more 80s-style boxier cut, thicker collar, longer sleeves, wider body. Think Gildan or Comfort Colors style here. These are for guys (and gals, too!) who don't want today's lighter fabrics that are definitely all the rage. These feel a little "rougher" out of the package but will soften after a few washes.
