Description


The Stardust was famous for its endless neon signage, beautiful topless showgirls… and notorious for its underworld connections. It was a frequent haunt of Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack, the longtime Las Vegas Strip home of the illusionist duo Siegfried and Roy, and the scene of reputed organized crime activity that inspired the book and film “Casino.” The plot was inspired by the real-life story of Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal who managed the Fremont, Hacienda, and Stardust casinos in Las Vegas for the Chicago mob back in the ’70s and ’80s. The Stardust opened in a blaze of fireworks on July 2, 1958, and with its 1,000 guest rooms, it was bigger than any hotel previously opened in Las Vegas. Its 16,000-square-foot casino was immense for its time, and the 140-foot bar that ran along much of its east wall was the longest bar in Las Vegas, but the real star of the Stardust at its opening was the Lido de Paris, the first topless French revue production staged in Las Vegas. Producer Donn Arden became renowned both for the technical complexity of the Lido – the stage mounted on six hydraulic lifts that could raise and lower it as the drama demanded – and the beauty of the costumed showgirls. Shortly after the resort opened, the defunct nearby Royal Nevada hotel and casino (opened in 1955) was converted to become part of the Stardust, further expanding the massive property’s footprint. All told, the Stardust was a Las Vegas fixture for decades and remains synonymous with classic Vegas today, though most of the modern casino complex – including its main 32-story tower – wasn’t actually built until 1991. The Stardust officially closed at 12:00 p.m. on November 1, 2006, after operating continuously for 48 years. It was imploded on March 13, 2007, around 2:33 a.m.

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.
