An Australian woman has left hundreds in stitches after sharing the cheeky message she didn’t realise was hidden in a shirt she bought to wear at work.
Sydney author and journalist Gina Rushton was searching online for some ‘office appropriate’ clothing and purchased what looked like a normal white button-up shirt with mustard-yellow stripes.
However when it arrived, Gina noticed it had a hidden message reading ‘I only go to first base’ in the stripes.

‘I bought a shirt because I don’t have many ‘office-appropriate’ clothes and I didn’t realise it had writing on it until it arrived,’ she wrote in a tweet with an image of the top.
On sale for $79 down from $149 on The Iconic, the shirt’s description online does include the point ”I Only Go To First Base’ stripe in bone colour’ which went unnoticed by Gina.
The phrase is a double entendre in reference to both the shirt’s maker, Bondi clothing label First Base, and the common euphemism for how far someone goes in the bedroom.

Gina’s shopping gaffe amused hundreds of Twitter users and attracted a string of hilarious responses with many agreeing the shirt was not ‘ideal office attire’.
‘Just tell people you’re really bad at baseball,’ one joked while another laughed: ‘That’s one to wear for very important meetings’.
‘I bought myself a nice work shirt once with an abstract pattern on it, then realised the design was actually a hand holding a lit cigarette,’ a third shared.
