Description


Unless they’re very bad or brilliantly good, most of us take headlights for granted, but driving a Stratos at 100+ mph through a rally forest special stage at night behind the artificial daylight of six halogens and lights suddenly take on more significance. Cibie’s high-performance racing lights were common among all the quickest rally cars in Europe. There’s no question of nationalistic pride among the world’s teams; they must have the best and the best lights for rallying are Cibie. Founded in 1919 as Societe des Projecteurs Cibie by the remarkable Leon Cibie, who in 1913 had produced the first aircraft landing lamp in the world, in collaboration with Bleriot and Farman, using a propellor-driven generator controlled by his own design of voltage control. Fast forward to 1975 which saw Cibie manufacturing more than nine million car lamps, one million motorcycle lamps, and three million front and rear light clusters making them the single largest manufacturer of lighting in all of Europe.

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.
