  • What Happens When Chefs Design T-Shirts
If it's already one of those "Say YES CHEF and that's it" or "I don't SCREAM I express myself" sort of weeks, you're in luck. Flavour Gallery, the L.A. based T-shirt designer with an eye for dining-inspired designs, has expanded recently beyond its typical "swirl and sip" logos. The company began collaborating with a handful of chefs to design some pretty fantastic T-shirts.

We like to think of them as that rare multipurpose T-shirt for those "tricky" attire moments in life: The obligatory summer barbecue at your boss' house, the first time you meet your future in-laws. Yeah, Rick Tramonto's "Every chef needs a good acid trip" T-shirt (above) is pretty perfect for both.

That "Say YES CHEF and that's it" T-shirt? Three guesses which L.A. chef inspired that one (answer after the jump).

Was it that obvious? Ludo Lefebvre is behind both the "Say YES CHEF and that's it" and "I don't SCREAM I express myself" T-shirts. Coming soon, a Flavour Gallery representative tells us, are T-shirt collaborations with Timon Balloo and several other chefs.

Our T-shirt wish list? A swearing soliloquy from Gordon Ramsay, a few diet suggestions from Anthony Bourdain.
