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.Specifications

This t-shirt is a cream/natural color – it is not a white t-shirt.
All of our newest print designs are a one-run, limited edition print. We don’t want everyone running around wearing the same thing, so we’ve limited our prints to first run, limited edition prints only, not to be reproduced or re-stocked again.Inks
Printed with vivid, soft, vintage old school inks. Old School is still the best school!
We printed these soft 100% cotton t-shirts with the same vintage style inks they used in the 1950s for that same vintage look, feel, and quality. Your new t-shirt will feel soft to the touch, the inks will never chip, peel or fade away quickly like cheaply printed tees. As always, these are made of 100% pre-shrunk cotton for sensitive skin, breath-ability, and comfortable fit.
