A shifter is the lever through which one connects to their gears, car, road, and world. A shifter is also one who drives. The beauty of a manual transmission lies in its endless opportunities to engage. At every transition, there is a possibility for perfection.
Silky-soft premium American Apparel Tri-Blend shirt made in the USA
Water-based discharge ink for supple feel and vintage look
We use a Tri-Blend American Apparel shirt for this design, made proudly sweatshop-free in the United States. This incredibly soft and light shirt is the most comfortable we’ve ever worn and will become your go-to favorite. Sure, these cost us a few more dollars than other brands, but we believe the premium quality is worth every penny. Polyester (50%) retains shape and elasticity; Ring-Spun Cotton (25%) lends both comfort and durability; the addition of Rayon (25%) makes for a unique texture and drapes against the body for a slimming look.
Our shirts are silk-screened by skilled craftsmen in Orlando, Florida, at a shop renowned for their work with water-based and discharge inks. Unlike plastisol inks which place a layer of plastic-like ink on the surface, these special inks actually dye the fibers of the fabric. This leaves a printed area that is light and soft to the touch that won't crack and disintegrate from wear and washing. When using a lighter ink on a darker shirt (such as in this design), a discharge agent is added to the ink that bleaches the original dye from the organic fabric; this creates a distinct heathered effect when used on tri-blend fabric, giving the print a broken-in or vintage feel.
