Wear a little history commemorating the 100th Aniversary of WW1. In 1917, the planes of the newly established American Expeditionary Force Air Service arrived in France decked out with roundels made up of two concentric rings: red and blue, with a white center. The symbol was a variation of the markings already in use on French and British warplanes and was virtually the same as the insignia of the Imperial Russian air force. By 1919, all American warplanes had adopted new a new set of markings characterized by a white star in on a blue disc with a bright red dot in the center. Aircraft tail flaps during this period were often painted with distinctive horizontal red and white stripes reminiscent of the U.S. flag – an all too flashy color scheme that was quickly discarded at the outset of America’s entry into the Second World War.
Soft and lightweight, with the right amount of stretch. It's comfortable and flattering for both men and women. The print is press distressed, using muted hues with a warn look. All shirts print and ship directly from Liberty Maniacs.
