I am part of a club (or cult?) of people who consider In-N-Out to be The Greatest Restaurant in the History of the Universe. We, meaning other believers like Anthony Bourdain, French Laundry and Per Se head chef Thomas Keller, and Flavortown Mayor Guy Fieri, take shifts guarding the secret sauce recipe in a bunker in Irvine.

Anyway, in addition to a mighty fine burger, In-N-Out also makes pretty sweet T-shirts ($12 to $14.95) featuring groovy retro graphics. They call to mind simpler times when we only thought of orange things — like the “spread” — as wonderful and delicious.

Even better, In-N-Out lets you buy any T-shirt from its archive, meaning they can potentially make really awesome gifts. I know this because my girlfriend just got me one for Christmas and as I unwrapped it, she explained that it features the graphic from the year I was born. It takes the present from oh, nice, an In-N-Out tee to Oh my god that is so thoughtful and sweet.

And for less than the cost of two #1s, it’s a pretty perfect present for the In-N-Out stan in your life.
