Description


In 1934, three California men worked in a converted garage on a tropical tasting syrup for a line of ice cream toppings. A decade later the fruity syrup was finally being offered as a ready-to-serve beverage and by 1955 the bright red drink was a national brand. In 1961 a mascot of sorts was created and given the name ‘Punchy.’ His first television spot ran in 1962. He wore a striped shirt and a hat of grass, and he carried a glass of Hawaiian Punch. Skipping along, he approached an island tourist named Oaf who wore a flower shirt and a hat and Punchy would ask Oaf, “Hey, how about a nice Hawaiian Punch?” Oaf responded with “Sure!” at which point Punchy socked Oaf in the nose and skipped away, leaving Oaf out cold on the ground. This ad format would run for years and Oaf never learned his lesson – always getting a punch in the face and never receiving a drink. Eventually, the violent behavior was no longer considered funny and by the late ’70s, Oaf finally got a reprieve from getting knocked out by a jerkface Punchy.

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.

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.
