The latest T-shirt design from Lost Art Press is now available in 100-percent lightweight cotton and made completely in the United States.
The front of the shirt features the compass from Joseph Moxon’s “Mechanick Exercises,” which is our company’s symbol. The back of the shirt features the slogan: “Cutting Deals Since 1678.” What’s the joke? (Hint: “Deal” is an old word for dimensional softwood.)
The shirts come in navy blue and are printed on American Apparel shirts made in Los Angeles. We’ve been experimenting with these shirts during the last few years and have concluded they are even more durable than the heavyweight imported T-shirts we’ve used in years past. Plus, these American Apparel shirts are lighter in weight (less sweating), more breathable and less scratchy.
Switching to a USA-made shirt increased our costs by $1 compared to the imported shirts, but I think you’ll say, “I’ll buy that for a dollar” when you put it on. Shirts in size medium, large and XL are $16. XXL shirts, as always, cost $2 more.
The shirts are a deep navy blue, but they look almost black on some computer monitors. Trust us, they are blue.
