Description


In the mid 1800s, the Irish-born Grace brothers established a shipping business in Callao, the port of Lima, Peru. They prospered, especially in the exporting of guano from the Chincha Islands to the United States, where it was used as a fertilizer and gunpowder ingredient due to its high levels of phosphorus and nitrogen. Grace Line began offering passenger service in 1882, with ports of call between Peru and New York, sailing under the British flag. Ships built outside the United States prior to 1905 were banned from US registry, so US-flag service didn’t start until 1912. During the ’30 and ’40s, Grace Line ran ads featuring confused pirates experiencing cruise travel for the first time, which were both a little odd and kinda clever, but apparently worked well for the time period. At its peak, the Grace Line was a major force in American merchant shipping and cruise travel, owning 23 ships totaling 188,000 gross tons, plus 14 more on bare boat charters shortly after World War II. Grace Line would continue to prosper until 1969 when the company decided to go out of the steamship business and concentrate on chemical manufacturing and other ventures.

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.
