Description


Lee Triemert opened Lee’s Liquor Lounge in Minneapolis in the late ’50s, and ran it with his wife until he passed away in ’76. Lou Sirian bought the bar in ’77, but continued to call it Lee’s, because Lou is the kind of guy who likes to keep things the way they are. That model seemed to work for Lou, as Lee’s remained a mainstay of the city’s historically working-class North Loop neighborhood for decades. Housed in a 125-year-old former warehouse, Lee’s was the go-to watering hole for blue collar employees for generations, but as the factories left, so did many of the customers. Lou brought in pool tables, transforming the bar to a pool hall, but as the crowd got a little too rough, the pool tables got the boot and live music took their place in the mid ’80s. This is when Lee’s got its second wind as a music venue, with sort of a honky tonk dive bar vibe. Sadly, Lee’s closed in 2019 after losing their use of a city owned parking lot to light rail expansion.

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.
