When faced with the choice between Lucky and Gorgeous, the best choice is... both. The harder choice: how much cotton do you want in your shirt?
- Navy Blues -- 100% cotton
- Black Soul -- 50% cotton 50% polyester
- Rhythm Red -- 25% cotton, 50% polyester, 25% rayon
With the help of our friends at Forward Printing in California, these super-slick shirts are printed with a special discharge process which "burns" the ink into the fabric for a sharp, soft, thin print.
The Navy Blues shirt is printed on fitted, 100% cotton American Apparel 2001 shirts. (Ladies: 2102, 4X-5X: Gildan 2000, 6X: Hanes 5250) The Black Soul shirt is printed on American Apparel's BB401, which is 50% cotton / 50% polyester -- a slightly tighter, taller, and much thinner version of the Navy shirts. (Ladies: BB301, 3X-5X: Gildan 8000, 6X: Hanes 5250) And finally, American Apparel's TR401 forms the base for our Rhythm Red shirt. It's a 50% polyester, 25% cotton, 25% rayon garment with a heather texture -- like a gym shirt, except that you'll be excited to put this one on every week. (Ladies: TR301, 3X-5X: Gildan 8000, 6X: Hanes 5250)
Each shirt comes with a complementary 1" pin, a metallic print manufactured by the pros at Busy Beaver.
