If you lived in the great San Diego area in the ’70s and ’80s, odds are you remember radio, TV, and print ads for Beau Gentry’s Waterbeds. Beau Gentry was a retired western actor that lent his name to the enterprise that started up when America began going wild for waterbeds in the early ’70s. Starting with one location in Lemon Grove, by the late ’70s, they had four locations – Clairemont, Lemon Grove, National City, and Santee. Unlike a lot of the waterbed shops at the time, Beau Gentry’s actually made their own beds. They manufactured their own bed frames, bladders, and associated furniture, billing themselves as the biggest waterbed manufacturer on the West Coast. Sadly, the waterbed fad sprung a leak by the end of the ’80s, and Beau Gentry’s Waterbeds had started closing locations before shutting down for good.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
