Paper Street Soap Co. is the fictional company created by Tyler Durden in the 1996 novel, Fight Club, by author Chuck Palahniuk, and popularized by its film adaptation starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. Tyler uses Paper Street Soap Co. as an anarchic and simultaneously capitalistic enterprise that produces soap out of rendered human fat stolen from the dumpsters of liposuction clinics. The soap is then sold to retailers, particularly department stores, as a high-end product. The money made from these sales serves at first as a side income to Durden, who works part-time as a projectionist and waiter, and later becomes his sole source of revenue as the members of his Fight Club become the dedicated workers of his soap factory – the soap production becomes a full-time, round the clock enterprise that pays for the expenses to house and feed its members and to finance the guerrilla tactics of Project Mayhem.
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 Gildan 5000B tees, one of the best-wearing kid’s 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, this youth pro weight tee is perfect for every kid who wants a comfortable shirt to play, relax, or romp around in and our durable, high-quality prints will survive many adventures.

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.
*Sport Grey is 90/10 cotton/polyester and Ash Grey: 99/1 cotton/polyester. **Due to the nature of the printing process and different sizes of shirts offered, imprint position and scale may vary slightly from the product images, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible.
