Description


Eagle Motor Lines was founded by Mrs. Francis W. Edwards in Birmingham, Alabama. As the story goes, Mrs. Edwards was a bookkeeper for a freight company in Birmingham and did routine collections work for her employer. After getting irritated for having to wait too long at the same trucking company every week, she vented to the owner that she should just buy the business so that it could be operated properly. Much to her surprise, the owner called her a few months later and asked if she was still interested in buying the business. Turns out that she was, so she made an offer and in January 1946, Mrs. Edwards was president of her own trucking company. Starting out with 10 trucks that came with the business, she positioned Eagle Motor Lines as a specialty carrier focused primarily on iron and steel flatbed work, eventually expanding to heavy equipment and oversize loads. Two decades later in 1966, Eagle Motor Lines had grown to 340 trucks and over 500 trailers, operating across nearly half of the United States with annual revenue approaching $20 million. Not bad for a bookkeeper, huh? 

Details


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.

Sizing


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.
