Mr. Conservative's 1964 campaign may not have had much of a chance against LBJ, but Goldwater's presidential bid did inspire a generation of American conservatism and likely set the stage for Reagan in 1980.
These "reproductions" are quite a bit nicer than any campaign shirt you would have gotten 50 years ago. In fact, we're pretty sure there weren't any Goldwater campaign t-shirts. Even though it was more than a decade before 64 Dewey's campaign put out what was possibly the first promotional printed t-shirt in history, the trend didn't really pick up until closer to the 1970s.
So they're really not reproductions as much as historical fun. Like it's 1975, and you open up an old chest filled with college t-shirts and slap it on before jumping in your Camaro and grabbing a six-pack of Pabst with the boys.
This tee has it all - thick, structured, and super soft with the perfect amount of breathability. Made from 100% ring-spun cotton, the garment-dyed heavyweight t-shirt is perfect for any look and will fit you just right in its regular t-shirt style.
