The creator is Ross Valory, founding member and bass player for the band Journey. On a break from touring one day, Ross saw his friends’ kids playing shark, making chomping noises as they hugged their shoulders and flapped their elbows up and down, like the jaws of a man-eater. Twenty years later, he had a flashback to that moment and thought how cool it would be if there were shirts that showed a face and a mouth when you put your arms together that way.
Ross enlisted fellow Journey member and graphic artist Prairie Prince, and the duo created these hoodies with illustrations of chomping critters. Their shark hoodie (available in kid and adult sizes) features realistic airbrushed jaws and teeth and when you fold your arms across your chest, the image changes to reveal an open-mouthed shark. We’re also offering Mouth Man’s T-Rex hoodies (just for kids). The front of the T-Rex hoodie features the dinosaur standing in front of a field of flames, and there's another open-mouthed T-Rex on the back.
And just in time for Halloween, we're excited to try out Mouth Man's brand new skeleton hoodie (in kid and adult sizes). It's perfect for scaring up some fun in the fall.
Mouth Man’s animated hoodies were a huge hit at Casey Leathers’ high school. Casey and a bunch of her friends decided they were the perfect accessories for senior activities, and she wrote to tell us about the fun. Don’t Stop Believin’ these hoodies are awesome. We’re forever smitten, Faithfully…
