Cockshutt was a large Canadian tractor and machinery manufacturer, known as Cockshutt Farm Equipment Ltd. Founded as the Brantford Plow Works by James G. Cockshutt in 1877, the name was changed to the Cockshutt Plow Company when it was incorporated in 1882. After James died, his brother William took over as president. He remained until 1888, when another brother, Frank, became president of the company. In 1910, Henry, the youngest of the brothers, took over the leadership of the company. Under his direction, the company was able to obtain financing for acquisitions and expansion. Known for high quality and innovative designs, the company became the leader in the tillage tools sector in the ’20s and by the ’40s, their tractors were known across Canada as one of the best tractors a farmer could have. Cockshutt was based in Brantford, Ontario, Canada and was finally able to enter the U.S. market by signing an agreement with the Bellevue, Ohio based National Farm Machinery Co-operative (NFMC) in 1945. This deal had NFMC acting as their exclusive dealer network in the states which brought Cockshutt’s innovative line of tractors and equipment south of the border where they quickly became popular with American farmers throughout the midwest. This design features a farmer operating his top-line 1953 Model 50 tractor.
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 Next Level 3900 Premium Women’s tees, aka ‘the boyfriend tee, one of the softest, best-wearing women’s t-shirts available today.

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. The Next Level 3900 is a fitted women’s t-shirt, so if you are looking for a roomier fit, we suggest going up a size or with the unisex Bella + Canvas 3001 we print our men’s t-shirts on as they are the same super soft ring-spun cotton that feels like an old favorite. 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.
*Heather colors are 90% ring-spun cotton and 10% poly. **Due to the nature of the printing process and different sizes of shirts offered, imprint position and scale may vary slightly from the product images, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible.
