American Idol judge Keith Urban launches line of Haiti-manufactured graphic tees

Sure, Simon Cowell and his signature black crew-neck tees may seem ancient to American Idol viewers, now that Keith Urban is officially the singing show's reigning T-shirt king. And now, the country singer has launched his own line of graphic tees.

By Keith Urban -- which offers $60 tees for men and women featuring paint cans, se ahorses, key chains and American flag-printed trailers -- sees the Idol judge partnering with artist/fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco. The line is manufactured by Industrial Revolution II, a garment factory in Haiti that invests 50 percent of its profits into the employees, families and local communities.
"I've always loved cool, interesting T-shirts and wanted to share that passion, but only if I could do it in a fun collaborative way -- with social impact that can help make a difference," wrote Urban in a statement on the site. "We've created a collection we love that is manufactured with the philosophy of reinvesting back into the communities and the team members."
