Gulf’s storied racing history extends further into the past than most may realize. It was their interest in frontier-extending racing research that prompted it to attack the Indianapolis 500 with the legendary rear-engined “Gulf-Miller” four-wheel-drive cars back in 1938 and while their first outing at Indy was a bust, the very cars that lost that day soon hit the Bonneville Salt Flats and set numerous world records. Thankfully, Gulf stuck with their racing pursuits as they went on to be one of the most formidable teams in racing history with countless wins and records set everwhere from the World Endurance Championship and 24 Hours of Le Mans, to Formula One, IndyCar, and Can-Am. With lots of racing going on, you’d think that the distinctive blue and orange livery was well known by the late ’60s, but it wasn’t until 1967 that the iconic team colors were first introduced and just in time too, as the team would go on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1968.
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 Gildan 5000B tees, one of the best-wearing kid’s 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, this youth pro weight tee is perfect for every kid who wants a comfortable shirt to play, relax, or romp around in and our durable, high-quality prints will survive many adventures.

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!
*Sport Grey is 90/10 cotton/polyester and Ash Grey: 99/1 cotton/polyester. **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.
