Temple University Students Establish Unconventional Website


Huntingdon Valley, PA – You’d think that people would have had enough of silly t-shirts. But look around and you’ll see it isn’t so. Therein lies the motivation for two Montgomery County (PA) college students, who have launched, an internet site selling “the most original t-shirts on the web!”

Temple University students (and brothers) Cale and Rudy Mezzy’s shirts range from the irreverent (“Dog Fighting Champion #7, Atlanta,” an allusion to the Michael Vick saga), to the ridiculous (“3rd Grade Pogs Champion”), to the sublime (“Pennbrook University,” a reference to the college setting on the old TV show, “Boy Meets World”).

A total of 40 t-shirts have been placed on the fledgling website, which can be viewed at An additional 40 are expected to be added within the month, says Cale Mezzy, the 20-year-old “business” end of the brother act, entering his junior year at Philadelphia’s Temple University, where he is preparing for a future as a sports agent.

The shirt ideas are hatched from the brain of Rudy Mezzy, 18, a fledgling comedian who begins his freshman year at Temple’s College of Media this fall.

After surfing the multitude of websites offering offbeat t-shirts popular with devotees from grade school through college, the Mezzy brothers saw a niche heretofore untapped: a high-quality, low-price, original t-shirt. After Cale hired website designers and purchased the necessary ingredients to produce the shirts, Rudy went to work on the creative end.

At, buyers can own their very own “If you look at my shirt, I get to punch you” shirt at prices lower than offered by the more well-known t-shirt sites. To help promote the introduction of the site, the Mezzy brothers are offering a free "” shirt with every purchase. A free shirt is also available to those whose photo (wearing a MezTees-designed shirt,of course) is selected for use on the site.

Cale and Rudy Mezzy are graduates of Lower Moreland High School, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Their t-shirt headquarters is currently the basement of the home where they grew up. Both the brothers and their parents are hopeful that someday soon, the business will be successful enough to require a larger, off-site location.
