How does your apparel fit? November 18 2014

Our shirts are super soft and treated to feel like they came from a different era. We use a variety of techniques to achieve this vintage look and feel. As a result, each of our shirts is unique with slight variations in color, distress and level of fading; wearing and washing continues this process.

To ensure the best fit for you, be sure to refer to the fabric blend and size chart on each product page while browsing particular styles and follow garment care instructions.

*Both of our Women’s and Men’s shirts are form-fitted. That said, most of our customers find that our men's / unisex shirts are generally true to men's standard sizing and our women’s line runs a little on the small side. Our women's and men's t-shirts do vary in size from one style to the next. We always recommend that customers measure themselves against the individual size chart found on each product page for the best fit.

Cleaning and Care November 18 2014


Please see care instructions on inner neck label. In general, we recommend machine wash cold with like colors, tumble dry low, no iron and no bleach.


Machine wash warm. Tumble dry low. No bleach.


We recommend customers spot clean the tote bags and pouches as they get dirty instead of washing them. Typically you don't want to machine-wash a printed canvas bag because it can damage the print and shrink the fabric. If needed, the best way to keep it clean is to hand-wash with laundry detergent and warm water. For heavier stains, a scrub brush can be really effective, and for general grime, a terry cloth or regular wash-rag should do. *We do not recommend washing the colored tote bags. They are made with dyed canvas and are not colorfast.*
