Description


The Pacific Electric Railway (PE), nicknamed the Red Car Line, was a privately owned mass transit system in Southern California consisting of electrically powered streetcars, interurban cars, and buses. The PE grew to become the largest interurban system in the world, spanning over 1,100 miles and operating 1,200 cars throughout Southern California in the pre-freeway era. Red Car service provided fast efficient passenger and freight interurban transportation in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, making commuting within minutes possible. Suburban towns sprang up and developed along the PE rails. The Pacific Electric also ran one of the few electrically-powered Railway Post Office routes in the country. The system shared dual gauge track with the 3 ft 6 in narrow gauge Los Angeles Railway, “Yellow Car,” or “LARy” system on Main Street in downtown Los Angeles (directly in front of the 6th and Main terminal), on 4th Street, and along Hawthorne Boulevard south of downtown Los Angeles toward the cities of Hawthorne, Gardena, and Torrance.

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 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.

  • 50% preshrunk cotton, 50% polyester* 
  • Fabric weight: 8.0 oz/yd² (271.25 g/m²)
  • Double-lined hood with matching draw cord
  • Quarter-turned to avoid crease down the middle
  • Air-jet spun yarn with a soft feel and reduced pilling
  • 1×1 athletic rib-knit cuffs and waistband with spandex
  • Double-needle stitched collar, shoulders, armholes, cuffs, and hem
  • Front pouch pocket

Sizing


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 😎
