Description


The Colourbox opened their doors in 1991 at 113 1st Ave S in Pioneer Square, right as the ‘Seattle sound’ began blowing up national charts and the local music scene exploded. Located in the Terry-Denny Building that was the Northern Hotel in 1889 after the Great Fire, the venue was a small space that gave emerging artists a high visibility location to play. With a low stage and a long bar serving stiff drinks, the Colourbox was an intimate space with surprisingly good sound that saw countless acts throughout the club’s near decade long run. Owned by a former cobbler and notorious Seattle slumlord, the rent was cheap, but the owner’s lack of maintenance was the club’s ultimate undoing as the building’s ancient pipes routinely failed, causing raw sewage to back up into the restrooms and the alley behind it. As the sewage issues became more frequent, the club was closed more than it was open for clean up, and as one might imagine, the funk began to stick around after a while, which was not exactly good for business.

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.
