SHQ Club Shirt 2.0

IMG_2614
The SHQ Club Shirt is back by popular demand, in a new colorway AND with a pocket! Available in the shop and through our online store.

We got together with Filth Mart and made an extremely small number of super high quality silkscreened shirts. Printing was done with water-based inks using Filth Mart’s press in the back of their shop on Fairfax.

Blanks by Filth Mart. Made in downtown LA.

– Tubular construction (no sideseams)
– Blindstitch on sleeves and hems
– Set on rib collar
– Slightly heavier cotton that has been washed for vintage look and feel
– Shorter body and sleeves like vintage shirts from ’50s to early ’70s
– Print will fade slightly after one wash
– 100% cotton, pre-shrunk
