Welkom to The Grumpy Dutchman!
We assume that you’ve arrived at TheGrumpyDutchman.com because

Trust us, we’ve browsed the pitiful selection of Dutch gear, and we feel your pain. If we have to see one more “If you’re not Dutch, you’re not much” shirt, we might go crazy too!
As an alternative to going crazy, please visit our store and prepare to be amazed and dazzled by an impressive selection of funny, witty, snarky, cute and grumpy gear that you can wear with pride! While you’re here, take a moment to Meet Grumpy (our founder and head T-shirt creator), brush up on your Dutch history with Grumpy’s Dutch Facts, and see what we’re all about in our Giving Back section.
Whether you are 1% or 100%: Let ‘em know you’re proud to be Dutch!
