Holden Sandman 1974 Vintage Kid’s T-Shirt

Holden Sandman 1974 Vintage Kid’s T-Shirt

$24.95

Holden introduced the Sandman ute in 1974 as part of the HQ series and based on base models, but with extras including the comprehensive dashboard from the Monaro, two seats, and sport wheels. It immediately hit a sales sweet spot with younger male buyers, outselling the Monaro, and promptly dubbed “shaggin’ wagon” and “sin-bin” and becoming the catalyst for similar vehicles from other manufacturers trying to cash in on the Sandman craze. By the late ’70s, the fizz had almost completely gone from the Sandman’s market as people who wanted a surf wagon already owned one and new buyers were moving on to other trends, so 1978 was the model’s last hurrah, though they very much have held their cult status to this very day.

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 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.

  • Regular fit
  • 100% preshrunk jersey knit cotton (fibre content may vary for different colors*)
  • Light fabric (5.3 oz/yd²)
  • Tear away label
  • Seamless double-needle 3/4″ collar with double-needle sleeve and bottom hems

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.
