I love Univers on a T-Shirt. I had a custom-made shirt made for my husbands birthday and it turned out better than expected. Also, the off-the-rack shirts they have are clever and made out of great fabrics. It's the best place to get something if you want to say "Amsterdam" when someone asks where you got that cute shirt.

Its very small store, but with a good vice. The amount of different shirts or hoodies wasn't amazingly high, but there were some fun ones and ended up purchasing a hoodie. So nothing special imo, but worth visiting if nearby :)

Wandered in because I love tshirts and I was so pleasantly surprised. Best shirt shop I've ever been in. Picked up a few awesome shirts and a sailboat hoodie that's adorable. The owner/designer was there and couldn't be nicer. The quality of the shirts and prints are outstanding. What an amazing gem of a shop. I'll be shipping to the... More

I just happily blew through some cash for two sweatshirts and on tee, with incredibly cool original graphics. The staff were sweet. I'm sure I'm going to hear "where did you get that?" when I get back to NYC.

I was looking for a gift to bring back to my wife and I happened to find this very unique t-shirt shop. The store features items designed and created by the owners (and a few by their 6 year old daughter as well) right on the premises. They utilize shirts made natural materials such as bamboo and eucaliptus fabric that... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
