Our tank tops have been a hit among dog and cat lovers from day one. Certainly they can be mistaken for the tanks worn by the young ladies at the famous chicken wing place. But when people discover they are really looking at a dog or cat in our design, they get the joke.
Well, there IS a reason our tanks look so similar! A number of years ago, NOOTERS Club® participated in the Happy Paws Pet Expo in Las Vegas. The expo invited the local Hooters® girls to participate at the event –and they did – by selling raffle tickets and raising money for the Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary of Las Vegas. The girls were wonderful—and we found out that a lot of them are huge animal lovers.
We asked the restaurant’s permission for the girls to wear NOOTERS Club® shirts at the event. Hooters® said yes, but the shirts must be tank tops—and they must be identical – in style and fabric content — to the ones they wear to work. We got a sample from Hooters and set out to find the same type of tank tops that we could imprint with the NOOTERS Club® logo. We were lucky enough to find a supplier with the right combination of 90% cotton and 10% lycra. So the girls were able to wear our shirts! We had a great time at the event and raised more than $2,000 for Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary.
So that’s the story behind the NOOTERS CLUB® tank tops. They’re meant to be worn fitted, close to the body. For ladies who prefer a looser fit, we added a SECOND STYLE OF TANK that’s 100% cotton and PROVIDES A MORE OPEN LOOK (cute with a sports bra underneath!). Either style is perfect for showing off your NOOTERS® in the summer sun!
