Inspired by, and produced with a strikingly similar art style and look to the 1940-1950’s western stylized adverts, clothing fabrics and western décor.
This design is in honor of a long American tradition of Rodeos and Stock Shows. Rodeos had their beginnings as just Stock Shows to show your cattle to potential buyers. Ranchers would go on cattle drives to get to the Stock Show, but sometime during these meetings, Ranchers started showing off their skills from, herding, branding, horse breaking, roping, horse riding… to other Ranchers at the Stock Shows.
We’re not Rodeo experts and don’t know exactly how, when, and exactly where these “Cowboy Competitions” were added to the events of the Stock Shows, or by whom. It might have been the earliest existence of the phrase, “Hold my beer, watch this!” to show up in American conversation…we’re still trying to verify this through our sources.
Printed inks on this shirt are yellowish gold, aqua blue and warm red.
This t-shirt is natural color - not white.
All our newest print designs will be one-run limited prints. We don't want everyone running around wearing the same thing, so we've limited our prints to first run limits only, not to be reproduced or re-stocked again so you can look different then everyone else.
This t-shirt is printed on a natural cream-colored T-shirt, similar to vintage T-shirts. We printed these soft fashion men’s tee's with water base inks, just like they did in the 1950s so your T-shirt will feel soft, and it will never chip, peel or fade away like cheaply printed tees. As always, these are made of 100% pre-shrunk cotton for sensitive skin, breath-ability and a comfortable fit.
