Craftsmanship For Vintage RAF & Spitfire T-Shirt

 

About the Tee

This lightweight cotton t-shirt makes for a go-to wardrobe staple! It’s comfortable, soft, and its tubular construction means it’s less fitted.

The lightweight tee, is little see through.

As a designer, I’ve always used high quality cottons for my printing projects. But this particular USAAF tee, my objective is to give you the best comfort and cotton there is.

โ€ข 100% ring-spun cotton
โ€ข Fabric weight: 165 g/m2
โ€ข Pre-shrunk
โ€ข Shoulder-to-shoulder taping
โ€ข Double stitched sleeves and bottom hem

 

Hand Dyeing Method

In my various research and documentation, during ww2 combat operation, military t-shirts from WW2 were never perfectly clean or white. They showed signs of sweat, elements exposure and wear. My goal is to mimic that by giving the shirt a soul! To make it even more authentic and comfortable for you, I used natural dyes such as curry powder and coffee. And for extra staining effect, I also use water based paint for fabric.
The dyeing process takes between 2 to 3 days to be completed, but the result is worth the wait.

 

Hand Printing Method

This t-shirt is 100% hand printed. It takes a couple of hours to a day to finish the printing for one t-shirt.
To apply the paint on the shirt, I use my custom made stencils, Speedball paint and a pastel brush. Each t-shirt is unique! The stroke of the brush canโ€™t be copied and pasted on each t-shirt. Each one has its own unique finish.
Youโ€™re getting an art piece, that no machine can reproduce.

 

Hand Weathering Method

Weathering is a long process that can take 1 to 2 days to finish. Each section of the shirt is carefully distressed with various type of tools such as: sand paper, paint, x-acto knifes, metal brushes, razors and bleach.

 

Vintage Royal Air Force T-Shirt Hand Painted Packaging Method

Packaging is the last and most important part of the design process. Since this bag is all hand painted, itโ€™s only natural to have the same method applied to its packaging.
I use a recycled brown paper bags that I customize just for you. I lock the packaging with a military wax seal until it reaches you.ย Every single detail, has a countless hours of hand work.
