Pioneer Chicken (or Pioneer Take Out, as it is officially named), was a Southern California fried chicken chain once heavily endorsed by O.J. Simpson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, that boasted hundreds of locations in their heyday. Founded in Echo Park, Los Angeles in 1961 by H.R. Kaufman, he grew Pioneer Chicken with heavy franchising, though their signature recipes probably did most of the heavy lifting, all with their mascot, Pioneer Pete, driving the chow wagon high above each location. When Kaufman sold the chain in 1987, there were 270 stores operated by 220 franchisees.

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 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.

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.
