Creating high quality embroidered shirts
that can change the world....
Solomon's Robes was founded in 2014 by Jim and Dorothy with a desire to provide Christians with a high quality 100% silk, button up men's dress shirt that includes beautiful artistry and a powerful message. Now you can own a high quality, beautifully crafted men's dress shirt that you can wear anywhere, especially Church. Feel free to "dress up" with slacks or "dress down" with jeans in our 100% silk embroidered shirts and spread the message. We are just starting out with this first offering but will be adding designs and shirts to suit every need - check out the "shirts" tab
In the words of St. Francis - "spread the gospel, and if necessary use words."
100% Silk Embroidered Men's Dress Shirts with a powerful message for the wearer and the reader
King Solomon was granted anything that he wanted from God and what he chose above all else was "wisdom". With that gift, he chose well for his people and served the Lord. We here at Solomon's Robes also want to serve the Lord. We have pledged to donate 15% of our profits to charitable organizations. Currently we support child outreach services with sponsored children in third world countries. With every dollar we make, we can help that many more children. Know that when you wear a Solomon's Robes shirt, you are spreading not only the message of God, but His love and compassion as well.
I WAS MADE FOR HIS PRESENCE
What does that even mean or “Why that phrase was chosen for the first shirt offering.” I was reading a devotional piece a while back and came upon that phrase, or something like it. It just jumped off the page and went straight to my heart. The message for me was that “God created man in his own image (KJV Genesis 1:27). In and of itself it pretty cool…..BUT though his Son Jesus Christ we are also allowed to “put on the new self, created to be LIKE God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24) WOW!!! We were created in God’s image and then through Jesus, given all of the potential to be like God in righteousness and holiness. We were wonderfully and beautifully made to have His Presence. All of the tools and grace required to be like God in righteousness and holiness are in fact with us ALL right NOW, right here. The shirt proclaims the basic truth that we/I are perfectly capable of being like God in righteousness and holiness.
And so was born the initial offering of Solomon’s Robes. The Holy Spirit, the Advocate, the Helper, the Counselor the Comforter symbolized by the Bird with Fire, who Jesus sent from the Father (John 15:26) surrounded by the acknowledgement that “I WAS MADE FOR HIS PRESENCE”…a tall order to live up to, but an absolutely life changing declaration. We are not human beings having a periodic “spiritual experience” – we are in fact Spiritual Beings have a human experience. Through the grace of God we are able to experience all things new again because of the Father’s great gift of the ultimate sacrifice of His Son and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
I knew that only the best would be good enough for that kind of message so I searched for two years to find a 100% Silk shirt. I worked for two years on a design that was simple, yet elegant enough for the message that we are all capable of being like God in righteousness and holiness. Finally I was able, with the help of a friend find an embroider who could put all of this together.
I hope that helps explain why the first ever shirt from Solomon’s Robes is what it is…I hope that this explanation helps you to want to spread God’s good news and help change the world – one shirt at a time.
