Chief Warrior 1944 WW2 T-Shirt Theme

This t-shirt is from the same collection as the hand-painted Native American Chief Duffle bag. It is also inspired by the Dirty Dozen 101st Airborne paratroopers who landed in Normandy on D-Day. This is why there are three C-47 Skytrains in the background.


About the tee

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

This lightweight tee is a little see-through.

I’ve always used high-quality cotton for my printing projects as a designer. But for this particular tee, I aim to give you the best comfort and cotton.

Hand Dyeing Method For the Chief Warrior 1944 WW2 T-Shirt

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


Hand Printing Method for the Chief Warrior 1944 WW2 T-Shirt

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 brush strokes can’t be copied and pasted on each t-shirt. Each one has its unique finish.
You’re getting an art piece, that no machine can reproduce.

This t-shirt has 7 hand-printed designs.


Hand Weathering Method the Chief Warrior 1944 WW2 T-Shirt

Weathering is a long process that can take a couple of days to finish. Each section of the shirt is carefully distressed with various types of tools such as sandpaper, paint, x-acto knives, metal brushes, razors, and bleach.


Hand Painted Labels

This Distressed Chief Warrior 1944 WW2 T-Shirt has its unique label tag from l’Atelier. The tag is numbered with the tee’s unique serial number and has a red wax handmade quality control seal. On the back are two other stapled tags: one for the -REMAKE©- list, one for measurements, and a care instruction tag (all handmade and hand-dyed).

Inside the t-shirt, there’s also a custom-made, hand-dyed, care instruction tag that was sewn in. After reading you can tear it away. If you ever lose this care tag, there’s an extra one on the original external tag.


Chief Hand-Painted Packaging Method

Packaging is the last and most important part of the design process. Since all my items are hand-painted, it’s only natural to have the same method applied to their packaging.
On a beautiful large brown bag, I spray paint the 88th Company logo on a custom stencil. After inserting the custom item inside the bag, it is folded and closed with a vintage twine string. Finally, like a top-secret letter, the string knot is sealed with a custom wax seal.


Flat Rate Shipping

This item receives a flat rate shipping worldwide through DHL Express. However, taxes may apply from your country’s customs. So please, make sure to contact your local customs for information.
