Description


For almost 50 years, Los Angeles played host to two McHenry’s Tail o’ the Cock restaurants – one on “Restaurant Row” on La Cienega, and a second in the valley on Ventura. While their American fare was certainly above average, it wasn’t anything to rave about, but as the name might allude to, cocktails were the star of the show here. Tail o’ the Cock said they were the first in Los Angeles to serve Margaritas, but as you might imagine, there was no shortage of disputes of the claim The deep red leather booths were a popular place for Hollywood movers and shakers to meet for late afternoon drinks and as a result, a lot of TV and movie deals were made there over martinis. It was the kind of place where most of the staff had been there for a decade or longer and had no intention of moving on. Despite continued popularity and even becoming ‘retro’ by just sticking around, Sheldon A. McHenry sold, and the both locations shortly closed down, one after the other, in the mid-’80s.

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.
