Week # 5 in the “ORB IN ACTION” contest pitted three entries all submitted by men.  Well it seems the ladies took exception to being left out, and stepped up this past week as all three entries came from the gals.  Once again it was tough for the judges to pick a winner, but in the end, the FREE Original Retro Brand shirt will go to Samantha By, of Evanston, Illinois.  Here is a recap of the week # 5 entries:

Our first entry came from Jennifer Poole, of Tyler, Texas:

“I’m a huge Virginia Tech fan who currently lives in East Texas, working at The University of Texas at Tyler. I may be the ONLY Virginia Tech fan in all of East Texas! I was thrilled to receive this ORB Virginia Tech shirt as a gift, and it has helped me to share some Virginia Tech love around here. I do yoga in my shirt because it is soft, comfortable, and stretches with me. Right away, it became my favorite t-shirt. I’m hoping that Virginia Tech will beat Tennessee in the upcoming bowl game! Go Hokies! The two beagles in the picture are Tyler, on the left, and Katie, on the right. He was named Tyler before I moved to Tyler, Texas. How strange is that?  Anyways, thank you for the great t-shirt!”

This was an excellent entry, as this proves that the Original Retro Brand can put you in a “Zen-like state,” plus we are soft-tees for animals.

Our second entry came from Alina Stevens, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama: Having a few kids in the shot always pulls at the judges heartstrings!


“This is me and the cutest kids in the world, rockin’ my Original Retro Brand Alabama t-shirt at the Alabama-Georgia Tech women’s softball game.  Alabama killed them…as we do in every sport!!  Roll Tide!!  Original Retro Brand is my favorite t-shirt because it is SO comfortable, and everyone always asks me where I got it!!  Thanks Retro….keep rockin’!!!

Our third and WINNING entry came from Samantha By, of Evanston, Illinois.


“Hi, I’m a student at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.  Here I am with my sister (I’m on the left) and we’re getting ready for the holidays by finishing up a gingerbread house.  Special thanks to Northwestern Alumni Association’s website for being super easy to use so I could make this greeting card.  We both love our Northwestern ORB shirts.  I’m always getting compliments on how cute the shirt is.  I just love this logo and have not seen any other shirt that features Willie, the way this shirt does.”

The use of the school mascot and Christmas spirit shone through for Samantha and her sister.  Of course two Original Retro Brand shirts are better than one, and that clinched the victory with the judges. We will alert Samantha of her victory, and post the ORB shirt she chooses as her prize on the Original Retro Brand Facebook Fanpage.
