Just so we’re clear, they were NOT on a break. Or at least that’s how Jennifer Aniston sees it.

On Monday, August 2, Central Perk’s finest took to our feeds to announce their latest endeavor: a limited-edition apparel line, highlighting iconic quotes and moments from the hit show. From custom-designed tees to hoodies and baseball caps, we suggest making room in that closet of yours.

As the official site teased, each drop will be available for 4 weeks only,  “never to be sold again.” That’s right, we’d act fast before it’s too late.

As the cast proudly revealed, they’ll be donating half of their proceeds to a charity of their choice: Jenn, Americares, a charity dedicated to providing aid during Covid-19; Court, EBMRF, a non-profit raising awareness for a rare skin disorder; David, The Rape Foundation, giving back to survivors of abuse, and so on…
