“Micha Weinblatt is not your average T-shirt designer.”

You’re darn straight Micha’s not average — he’s a former Jewish Guy of the Week!

Weinblatt’s startup capital included $25,000 from initial sales, personal savings and four maxed-out credit cards. Today, Potomac, Md.-based Crooked Monkey brings in $750,000 in revenue and has 10 employees.

The shirts sell at Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom, Kitson, Fred Segal and over 550 other retailers worldwide. Asked if he still has plans to run for office, Weinblatt said, ”Not after the T-shirts I’ve made.”
