March graphic t-shirt designs for men


At Eastern Mountain Sports, we’re always changing with the seasons but there are three things you can always count on from us: awesome service from knowledgeable people, a great selection of top-quality gear and a new shipment of fresh graphic t-shirts every month. Every design we offer is created by one man, Mike McCooey who we profiled last year in a video so you can get to know the person behind the pictures.

For your browsing and shopping convenience, here are the styles for men available in all our stores now and at If you see one you like, just click on the design name to check it out on ems.comor stop by your local store. Be sure to check out the new ladies’ options, too!

Treedom Fighter

A wise trio of boys once said you’ve gotta fight for your right to party. The same can be said for your right to hike, camp, mountain bike or whatever else you like to do in state parks that are constantly facing budget cuts or wild spaces in the crosshairs of developers. This design feels like an homage to the cover of Green Day’s American Idiot album but with a conservation inspired twist.


At Eastern Mountain Sports, we don’t just wear our east coast pride on our sleeves, we wear it on our chest which is exactly what this design represents. Sure, we know the compass points north, but when you love the White Mountains, The Catskills, The Cape and the Islands and the Mid Atlantic region as much as we do, your compass always points east.


One of the primary sources of our aforementioned east coast pride is the sheer diversity of landscapes you can experience. For example, you can take a swim in the ocean to start your day at Acadia State Park and eat a late lunch at 5,268 feet at the top of Mount Katahdin. Simply put, the East is where the “Mountain Meets the Waves.”

Red Sun

One of my favorite things about spring time are those first few days when you can feel the sun starting to regain its strength. You can feel it on your face, smell it in the melting snow and see it in new buds on the trees and daffodil shoots. This design is a warm reminder that the best days for exploring the mountains are coming on strong.

A Matter of Life and Death

Every so often, Mike breaks out a design that makes me say “whoah.” This one definitely did the trick. My guess is a skull made out of trees and mountains won’t be for everybody but if you’re serious about outdoor adventure, it’s a strong message to take out into the world.

I hope you enjoy the March men’s t-shirt designs. Ordering one is as easy as clicking on the t-shirt name and choosing your size at Remember, we order these shirts in limited quantities so they sell out in time for new styles next month. If you see one you like, don’t wait!

Got an idea you’d like Mike to execute in a future t-shirt? Leave a comment here or send an illustration to!
