Description


Silent films date back to the 1830s, and better theaters accompanied them with live music and effects provided by mighty Wurlitzer pipe organs. When sound films came about in the late 1920s, theaters began removing their pipe organs in favor of new sound equipment. Many of these organs were mothballed, but in the ’60s, someone decided to put one into a Bay Area pizza restaurant, and it was a hit. Entrepreneur Bill Breuer like the concept and opened his first restaurant, Pizza & Pipes, in Santa Clara, California in 1962, choosing to get the biggest pipe organ he could find. After a decade of honing the concept, he opened another one in Seattle in 1973, and eventually opening two more in Tacoma and Bellevue. Bill’s success didn’t go unnoticed, and other restaurateurs opened their own versions of the concept, and in the ’70s and ’80s, live pipe organ music could be heard in more than 100 pizzerias across the country!

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.
