Then & Now: National Shirt Shops



 National Shirt Shops was a men's retailer that began as a line of shirts in 1911 and expanded to a full-scale storefront with many locations nationwide by the 1940s.  In Florida alone, there were nine National Shirt Shop locations.  The photo above shows their storefront in a Kentucky downtown area in 1948.


That black & white photo belies the colors that collectors seek today from the National Shirt Shop line.  This vivid tropical print rayon shirt is typical of their label's brilliant hues, meant for summer weekends of carefree style.


National Shirt Shops appeared to have a heyday in post-World War II years, benefiting from the popularity of Hawaiian shirts at the time and the prosperity of post-war America. As their slogan says, they literally spanned the country "Coast to Coast"!


This 1940s Hawaiian style shirt is currently available as of the time of posting.  Write us if you're always seeking them, and we'd be glad to hunt them out for you.

  8. Local screen printers may not have the cheapest prices, but many of them are extremely competitive considering the fact that they are a small business. Your best bet for pricing is to look the printers up in the phone book, give them a quick call, quickly explain what you want to them and ask for a quote (they should give you one on the spot). black t shirts

  10. A little over a year ago the two Jordan Shoes UK were released. With this exceptional release accompanied by a clothing capsule, Jordan Brand and Dior broke a new barrier between the world of luxury and streetwear. If at first glance the world thought it was all about one collaboration, this one would have been wrong.
    According to several rumors, it is quite possible that the Cheap Jordans Retro will drop in a series of new colorways. Exit the comfort zone of Dior therefore since the silhouette designed in premium Italian leather could drop in a Chicago color, a Royal and a Black / White. Of course, the first two are particularly expected since they are part of the legendary colourways of the pair designed by Peter Moore.
    A second wilderness-themed Dunk Low colorway from Shop Jordans 2020 emerges when we take a first look at this upcoming black, pure platinum, and charcoal arrangement. In a colourway quite similar to the BE @ RBRICK collaboration of MEDICOM TOY in 2020, this Dunk Low PRM (a non-SB) features the lightest animal prints on the black suede on anthracite parts on the toe area, ankle and carnations. A solid black adds both texture and color contrast, as do touches of pure platinum on the Swoosh, heel tab, inner liner, and tongue liner. The matching pure platinum sole completes the overall look which is sure to be a coveted item for Dunk Hunters.

  12. The number of fits and styles for jeans and there are five specific types of jeans fits. They have Skinny, Slim, Regular, Relaxed and Loose, all suitable for different body types. There are so many styles in terms of styles that I could fill the entire article with a list, but it's easier to say that the styles are based on three factors - the adjustments above, the structure of the material, as all type of jeans available in Jeans-land. , but different are the components and the color. The most common type of jeans is urban jeans, which men all over the world wear for any casual occasion. But there are also jeans that work like a casual suit with jeans, namely navy blue or beige, that suit some formal occasions.
    Most men have a closet full of jeans simply because it's the most convenient option on the market, but it still depends on the wear of the jeans. Jeans-land is very stiff when new, which is why most jeans manufacturers have jeans that are intentionally worn to make them more comfortable for the future wearer. This usually happens with most urban jeans that men like to wear all day, even if that day involves a very strenuous physical task, this is due to the comfort they offer. Depending on the fabric configuration, jeans can be breathable or very stuffy, which depends on price and quality, meaning "you get what you pay for" when it comes to the fit of the jeans.
