Now that ToniMarie is done with her great series of Halloween costumes, I want to start posting images and videos of Rothco products seen pretty much everywhere. I want to start today with something ToniMarie saw on VH-1 this weekend, some pictures of top selling hip-hop artist Jordan "Juicy J" Houston of Academy Award winners Three 6 Mafia wearing Rothco's Skull Wing Olive Drab T-Shirt .
Seems the guys in Three 6 Mafia favor hardcore horror influenced apparel and our t-shirt has just the right edge for their style.

As I said, Rothco is everywhere, and I'll be posting more Rothco sitings very soon.

Your Last Chance for Halloween Goodies!

Wow, there are only 7 days till Halloween. This will be your last chance to make sure you have these "Halloween Must Have's".

Having these items in your store will mean great last minute sales and could make or break your month. How? These items happen to be very unique, and few stores will carry anything remotely close. For instance the Woodland Camo and Army Digital Camoshopping bags are perfect for trick or treaters to carry around their candy. They're durable and camouflage and nothing goes better with that soldier costume!

The items below are the perfect accessories for lots of Halloween costumes. Those Soldiers, Sailors and Pilots can't complete their costumes without face paint, boots, helmet and helmet covers and dog tag chains and those Police Officers need their sunglasses, boots and duty belt!
