Sizzlean 1977 Vintage Men’s T-Shirt

$26.95

Sizzlean was a cured meat product manufactured throughout the 1970s and 1980s that was marketed as a healthier alternative to bacon, though those claims were considered dubious as the product did contain less fat than bacon, but was still 37% fat by weight, causing complaints that the “lean” inference of the name was not accurate. Sizzlean was advertised through a series of memorable commercials featuring the tagline “Move over, bacon, now there’s something meatier!” which was a nod to the product’s beef origins. Swift & Co. originally produced the product and rolled it out to major United States markets in 1977. Sometime in the 90s, Swift was sold and the product took a major backseat to other initiatives, but the new owners continued to sell Sizzlean in limited markets where it performed well until about 2005.

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 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.
