It's only a sweatshirt with Tibetan on it!
བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས bkra shis bde legs - the Tibetan greeting often written tashi delek.

This shirt is advertising the Yak & Yeti restaurant in Disney World's Animal Kingdom. The "Asia" area of Animal Kingdom has decor meant to evoke India, Nepal and Tibet. This includes a lot of signs in Devanagari, although I couldn't make sense out of a lot of them.

आनन्दपुर दूरसंप्रेषण - Anandapur telecommunication

अब आगे कहाँ - where next

 कोका-कोला - Coca-Cola

नए सदस्यों का स्वागत है - new members welcome
शौचालय - toilet

They're even throwing some Ranjana up there! I don't know if you would ever see Ranjana on a public telephone sign, but I love how the Disney imagineers know that this script exists and decided to use it.

This is Nepali! 
रोक्नु - stop
बिहिबार बेलुका - Thursday evening
