When my Dad was a teenager, he, my uncle and my late grandpa opened up a little joint at the Lake of the Ozarks on the Bagnell Dam strip here in Missouri. They had a few pool tables, some pinball games and a bowling game similar to shuffle board but on a smaller scale. I've always heard about this place but never got to see it. They were only open for one summer, the Summer of '69. The only thing he's had for all these years were memories and three photos. So between my brother and I, we put our heads together and decided to get him something he could wear proudly. I designed the graphics and between us we got it printed just in time for his birthday.

The Combine Honnete Ober Advancer Mercantiles or CHOAM controls all economic affairs across the cosmos, although it relies upon the Spacing Guild for transport across space due to the Guild's monopoly on faster-than-light travel. CHOAM touched almost all products the Guild will transport, from art forms to technology and of course melange. Many Houses depend on CHOAM profits, and an enormous proportion of those depend on melange. Of course if you're interested in this shirt, you probably knew all that already as you've read Dune. This original CHOAM design includes some heavy vintage wear to give it plenty of authenticity and galactic cred.
