Late Night with David Letterman was an American late-night talk show hosted by David Letterman, whose persona was that of a wise-ass little brother, that premiered on NBC on February 1, 1982. He invented, or at least personified, a generation of ironic comedy that commented on the media, even as his show was a part of it. He developed signature goofy segments like “Stupid Pet Tricks” and often found comedy in the mundane, just by being himself in unexpected situations. He hosted Late Night on NBC for 11 years, and then lost out to Jay Leno in the bitter battle to ascend to Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show chair. As a result, Late Night moved to CBS, where he was expected to turn into a grown-up, but Letterman stayed goofy while also finding his more serious side. Politicians came to visit, and he became known as a great interviewer, but remained a comedian and a true king of late night TV.
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 super-soft Gildan 18500 hoodies 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. With a large front pouch pocket and drawstrings in a matching color, this hoodie is soft, stylish, and a perfect mid-weight for laying in cooler weather or keeping the chill off during summer nights at the beach.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current sweatshirts, laying it flat, and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the hoodie laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the sweatshirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam.
All sizes are provided in inches!
