1985 was a really bad time to test the limits of free speech and censorship in America. The Senate was in the midst of hearings on “potentially offensive content” in popular music and just a few months earlier, the Parents Music Resource Council (PMRC), had succeeded in pressuring record companies to add warning labels to albums. When a San Francisco punk band released their new album that same year, it included a fold out poster known informally as ‘Penis Landscape.’ After an angry mother filed a complaint with the California attorney general about the poster, the band, their label, and a litany of others were charged with distributing harmful material to a minor. The free speech test was on, a trial ensued, and the ‘No More Censorship Defense Fund’ was set up to help defend those involved against an increasingly anti-free speech. This design was both a fundraiser by selling the shirt and an advertisement, as punks and free speech advocates alike wore them like walking billboards.
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.
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!
