Description


The 1986 World Exposition on Transportation and Communication, or simply Expo 86, was a World’s Fair held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from May 2 until October 13, 1986. The fair, the theme of which was “Transportation and Communication: World in Motion – World in Touch,” coincided with Vancouver’s centennial and was held on the north shore of False Creek. It was the second time that Canada held a World’s Fair, the first being Expo 67 in Montreal (during the Canadian Centennial). Expo Ernie was the mascot of the event and while often mistakenly referred to as an astronaut, Ernie was actually supposed to be a robot, or perhaps an astronaut robot? An animatronic version of Expo Ernie was built and became a familiar sight, though many remember when he fell on its face while attempting to hand then Washington State Governor Booth Gardner a ticket to Expo 86 at a Vancouver media event in 1986.

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.
