Triumph Engineering Co. Ltd. was a British manufacturing firm, originally based in Coventry and later in Meriden. Founded in 1885, the firm’s humble beginnings focused on bicycles which were initially imported and rebranded for sale under their marquee until they were able to get their own factory up and running. Their bicycles were in high demand, especially by overseas customers, but in 1898 Triumph decided to extend production to include motorcycles, and by 1902, the company had produced its first one – a bicycle fitted with a Belgian Minerva engine. After selling more than 500 motorcycles in 1903, they began production at a dedicated factory. During the first few years, they based designs on those of other manufacturers, but in 1904, they began building models of their own design, and 1905 saw the first entirely house designed motorcycle. They would go on to produce some of the most iconic motorcycles in the world, but sadly, just shy of their 100 year anniversary, Triumph Engineering Co. Ltd. was forced to shutter their factories and went into receivership.
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.

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.
All sizes are provided in inches!
