Sourcing this image was no easy task as we had to convince an artist of the vision that we saw with their specific image. Frank believed in our vision and decided to give us a shot. Now with the image in our possession, we headed to the doorstep of the local print shop.

    Best described as my go-to flannel. This piece is incredibly versatile. It’s the perfect weight to wear for fall or spring by itself, but adaptable enough to layer with, in the coldest days of winter. Made of 100% cotton that has been double-brushed for an insanely soft feel. These shirts truly feel better as they are broken in and worn. Created with tightly woven dyed yarn that maintains its color and minimizes shrinkage.
