A beignet (pronounced "beign-yay") is a pastry made from deep-fried dough and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Beignets are often found in, and typically associated with, the city of New Orleans, in places like Café Du Monde in the French Quarter.
If you ever go to Café Du Monde, you should get an order of beignets with extra powdered sugar, pretend to have to sneeze and then blow the powdered sugar all over your little brother or sister. They'll hate it, but you'll thoroughly enjoy yourself. And when they grow up, they'll pass the tradition along to their kids.
"Beign-Yay" is a Storyville Original, designed by LSU alumna Elizabeth Harvey and William & Mary student Bailey Thomson and Texas State student Sara Ruffin.
"Beign-Yay" is printed on an eggplant-colored, 100% cotton American Apparel tee with white and gold inks.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS item?
Most Storyville tees are printed on 100% cotton, American Apparel brand tee shirts. These shirts are not pre-shrunk, so they will shrink if they are placed in the dryer. The unisex-cut American Apparel tee shirt is cut like a traditional men's tee shirt, although it runs about a half size smaller than Hane's, Fruit of the Loom or Gildan brand t-shirts. The female cut American Apparel tee shirt is significantly smaller than the unisex cut (a female XL tee is about the same size as a unisex medium tee). Compared to the unisex cut, the female cut tee also has smaller sleeves, is more narrow in the torso and is shorter in length.
If a product is printed on something other than a 100% cotton American Apparel t-shirt, it will be noted on the product page. Below are the sizing charts for the unisex cut and female-specific cut American Apparel crew t-shirts.
