Coming from Marseille, Overlord Brand produce upcycled vintage clothing and military inspired pieces with a modern twist. The Overlord Choice of Champions T-Shirt is a recreation of a classic souvenir style of the post-war years and comes in a lightweight, organic cotton that is soft and durable.
The print is a reproduction of a vintage style and pays homage to the Schiefer Manufacturing Company, an iconic name from the golden years of hotrods and custom cars. Founded by Paul Schiefer in La Mesa, California in the post-war years, Schiefer Mfg. would go on to become the biggest manufacturer of speciality drivetrain components in the world. Much of the company’s research would take place on the Bonneville Salt Flats using a 1925 Ford Model T Roadster.
The Overlord Choice of Champions has a vintage fit and comes in a 6oz organic cotton that ensures comfort, ruggedness and durability. The t-shirt has a tubular construction, which is typical of t-shirts in the post-war years. More time consuming and less cost-effective to produce, tubular t-shirts have a much better fit due to the elimination of side seams.
The t-shirt is printed with water-based inks, again, sympathetic to the processes and techniques used in years gone by.
