Kenny Monfort was a Colorado cattleman who wasn’t happy with his options for getting his product to the East Coast, so being the industrious type of fellow that he was, he put together his own trucking operation. Gate to plate was important to Monfort, so he wanted trucks with enough power to make the run in a timely manner. He procured brand-new KW conventionals with after cooled Cummins 350 diesels – the biggest Class 8 power plant available at the time. Not concerned with return loads, turning a profit with the trucking operation was not in the equation. He wanted each of his team driven trucks to make two rounds a week between Greeley and the East Coast and do it as fast as possible. Monfort teams ran five-hour shifts, and it’s easy to see why “The Monfort Lane” became a part of the trucking industry’s lexicon for the left lane, as the Monfort “Circus Wagons” were constantly pushing what their trucks could do to make time and blowing the doors off of every other truck on the road.
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.
While our sweatshirts are made using premium, preshrunk cotton/poly blends, there can be some slight shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence or just want to be able to layer over various shirts, we always suggest going up a size as hoodies are meant to be a little on the big side 😎
All sizes are provided in inches!
*Heather colors are 60/40 polyester/cotton. **Due to the nature of the printing process and different sizes offered, imprint position and scale may vary slightly from the product images, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible.
