What Character From "The Office" Do Your Custom Apparel Preferences Align With?

Check out what custom apparel the characters from "The Office" might rock.

Welcome to Real Thread—Custom Apparel Company. Call us the "people person's t-shirt people."

"Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation." -Michael Scott. 

Take some time with us and discover the custom apparel items that our friends from Dunder Mifflin might own.

Michael Scott

"I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do."

Let's start with one of the funniest and craziest characters of our favorite group of co-workers. Michael Scott is the leader—good, bad, or indifferent. He guides the team as a successful branch of Dunder Mifflin. 

Michael's strongest desire is for people to like him and be his friend. This desire drives everything he does. His over-the-top personality doesn't always fly with his co-workers, but they generally understand his love for them at the end of the day. 

The Next Level Apparel 3604 Ringer T-Shirt gives all the team sports vibes, and Micheal's dream is for everyone to be on his team. Are you someone who tries to make people laugh and have fun? Michael would undoubtedly rock this Ringer tee; who's to say you shouldn't too?

Dwight Schrute

"Whenever I'm about to do something, I think, 'Would an idiot do that?' and if they would, I do not do that thing."

Here we have it: Michaels's left-hand man. Or at least he *thinks* he is. Dwight Schrute is many things; beet farmer, prepper, unofficial volunteer sheriff deputy, paper salesman, and arch-rival to Jim Halpert. 

Dwight is always looking to be in charge, partly because he thinks he's the most intelligent, prepared person in the room. 

If you consider yourself always prepared for anything, love to test the people around you, and want to be the next leader, the AS Colour 1001 Carrie Tote would be a perfect choice. 

This apparel item gives one the ability to carry everything you need to sell that next order of high-quality Dunder Mifflin paper, make sure your co-workers are ready if the office catches fire, and get back at Jim for the latest prank he pulls on you.

Jim Halpert

"Fact: Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica." – Jim 
"Identity theft is not a joke, Jim! Millions of families suffer every year!" – Dwight

One of the most prominent characteristics of Jim is his obsession with pulling pranks on his deskmate, Dwight. He always tries to find fun in the monotonous tasks accompanying his job. While Jim spends a lot of time planning and executing these pranks, he also completes his work to the point that he is comfortable and has enough for his children's college fund.

You might align with what we'd assume to be Jim's custom apparel pick, Bella+Canvas 3021 Unisex Jersey Pocket Tee, if you always try to find the fun in your day's mundane, tedious job while working hard. You have that favorite "friend" that you pick on and are a bit sarcastic.

Pam Beesly

"Jim is not allowed to talk until after he buys me a Coke. Those are the rules of jinx, and they are unflinchingly rigid."

And now Jim's partner in crime—Pam Beesly. She is always up to joining Jim in pranking Dwight while she tries to make each day better than the last. Throughout the series, we see her desire to be and do more. She becomes the voice of reason, develops her artistic skills, and becomes a leader in the workplace. 

The Comfort Colors 1717 6.1 oz Ringspun Garment-Dyed T-Shirt is a robust and reliable tee. Its color options provide a bit of artistic flare. If desiring to challenge yourself, dive into creative hobbies, and pull pranks with your best friend, you might align with Pam and this trusty tee.

Andy Bernard

"I'll be the number two guy here in Scranton in six weeks. How? Name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake."

Next up is the entertaining and loud salesman: Andy Bernard. Did you know he graduated from Cornell University? Everything he knows comes from his time at Cornell—at least according to him. Being a Cornell Alum is basically a personality trait to him. Andy has an eccentric and dramatic personality. He aspires to climb the corporate ladder and frequently desires to become the Regional Manager. He often clashes with Dwight due to their competitive ambitions.

Andy is well-dressed and enjoys his clothes being over-the-top, along with his personality. He would wear a Cornell University embroidered Independent Trading Co SS3000 Mens Crew Pullover Sweatshirt when not in his business suit and bow tie. This garment might be your pick if you are competitive when advancing your career. Sometimes your personality goes over the top, but you are okay with that. 

Stanley Hudson

"I Have Been Trying To Get On Jury Duty Every Year Since I Was 18 Years Old. To Get To Go Sit In An Air-Conditioned Room, Downtown, Judging People, While My Lunch Is Paid for… That Is The Life."

Next up, we have seasoned Dunder Mifflin salesman Stanley Hudson. Stanley values his space and doesn't care what is happening around him. He appreciates efficiency and looks forward to the end of the work day—and, of course, that annual Pretzel Day. Just give him a crossword; anything can happen around him without him noticing. 

A embroidered AS Color Mens Oxford Shirt 5401 would fit with Stanley as a simple, reliable dress shirt—however, Stanley dreams of wearing a light Hawaiian shirt in Florida and driving a red convertible. 

Are you a seasoned and knowledgeable worker at your company? You might see yourself as Stanley- rocking the Oxford shirt or dreaming of that Hawaiian shirt.

Kevin Malone

"Sometimes I feel like everyone I work with is an idiot. And by sometimes, I mean all times."

Now on to the accounting department! Kevin Malone is that loyal, food-loving guy in the office. *Cue the famous chili-dropping scene.*

While he comes off as having low intelligence through his speech patterns and how he expresses his ideas, he is highly skillful in accounting. Kevin also has some surprising talents, like playing the drums and holding The Office basketball high score. 

Kevin's pick would be the Allmade AL2004 Unisex Tri-Blend Crewneck T-shirt. You may not expect him to pick this sustainable, organic cotton tee, but we all know Kevin is full of surprises. 

Kelly Kapoor

"My resolution was to get more attention."

The Scranton branch customer service representative is known for her dramatic interaction with colleagues and on-and-off relationship with Ryan. Kelly desires the glamorous life of a pop culture icon. Despite her periodically superficial demeanor, she also displays traits of intelligence and resourcefulness.

Kelly's pick for custom apparel would be the most fashionable. She would align her pick with the color of the year. Her pick would be Bella+Canvas 7503 Women's Cropped Crew Fleece, specifically in the mauve shade. 

Erin Hannon 

"Disposable cameras are fun, although it does seem wasteful. And you don't ever get to see your pictures."

Erin is the replacement receptionist when Pam moves to sales. She is another upbeat, bubbly person who brings positivity to combat office antics and craziness. She sees the world through rose-colored glasses, often taking things at face value and trusting others easily. 

The AS Colour 5001 Staple Tee would be Erin's go-to. It's a reliable tee with a color selection to match her bubbly, upbeat personality.

Creed Bratton

"I've Never Owned A Refrigerator Before."

We are ending this post with the most mysterious person at Dunder Mifflin. In almost every interaction, new layers are added to the mystery, leaving us with more questions. Creed Bratton is an odd guy- or is he? We will never truly know.
