Father of All T-Shirts.

The story between this T-shirt and man points us eastward, to the Mediterranean, where sailors and fishermen have worn snug short-sleeved shirts like this one for centuries.

I thought the oyster shuckers in Baltimore were fast until, in Piraeus, I saw a man wearing this shirt use a shucking knife; he was faster.

On the banks of the Seine, lots of students and tourists hoping to be mistaken for natives, lots of blue-and-white striped shirts… but that deckhand over there, throwing a hawser out to a tour boat, he’s wearing this shirt.

In Bilbao, I observed a crew of moving men uncrating a giant piece of highly advanced sculpture. They were built like great sagging old bulls; in this shirt, they looked formidable.

Father of All T-Shirts (No. 1305). In a soft, very stretchy jersey knit that fits snugly. (Makes you feel like a healthy animal.) Tapered sides. Finely ribbed neck, not big and clunky.

The sleeves have a way of gathering emphatically at the top of a man’s arms, even if he is the sort of man who rarely lifts more than a fountain pen. Imported.

Men’s sizes: S (34-36), M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50-52).

Colors: Navy Blue, Heathered Grey, Black, French Blue, White, Heathered Burgundy, Olive Drab Green.

Great Shirt!!
My advice to you is to buy up a bunch of these tees. They have a great fit and I really like the banded sleeve. It rides up on the arm, thus allowing more freedom of movement than an regular sleeve. The only critique I have is that they don't come in tall sizes. Still, it's a great buy.

Great t-shirt, Very flattering
Soft tee that comes in great colors (I have 6 I especially recommend the french blue and the burgundy). Cuts a flattering silhouette. Elastic at the sleeves gives arms some definition. You'll feel good and look good.

A great, basic fitted t-shirt
The first thing to note with these t-shirts is they are fitted, if you wear the vintage t-shirts the Father of All T-Shirts will feel like it fits a size smaller across the torso since it is tighter. The material is stretchy, if you are fit this is an amazing shirt for you since it does show off your arms and overall build a lot more. Its a great shirt to show off in and pairs amazingly well with jeans, it could even work as an undershirt if you wanted.
