The Town Too Tough to Die! One of the most historic Wild West cities in America really needs no introduction. You’ve heard of it, we promise.
Tombstone Arizona has a deep Wild West history. We designed this shirt with vintage souvenir tees in mind. We’ve added all the major historic landmarks in Tombstone worth mentioning on this tee.
The Bird Cage Theatre was a winning combination of a saloon, gambling hall, and a brothel. The Bird Cage Theatre was dubbed, “The Wildest, Wickedest Night Spot,” which I believe! Doc Holliday even gambled there – so this landmark had to be on this t-shirt.
Next, we have the OK Corral – a horse corral made famous by the Gunfight at OK Corral that lasted only 30 seconds long but we still hear stories of it today. The Clanton’s boys hated all the Earp boys and there was a gunfight. Doc Holliday was shot, Wyatt Earp was unscathed. There is history in a nutshell.
Boothill Graveyard is still pretty spooky and was aptly named after all the men who died with their boots on. Who needs to get all fancy with a name when you can just call it how you see it. The fella’s who lost at the 30 second Gunfight at OK Corral are buried here.
Lastly, the Crystal Palace Saloon was for the richer folk of Tombstone. The second floor housed doctor offices, the county coroner, U.S. Marshal Virgil Earp’s office, attorney’s office, Sheriff’s office, and the Justice of the Peace office. Downstairs was another winning combination of saloon, gambling hall, betting on horse races, wrestling and boxing matches. This was much nicer than the Birdcage, with chandeliers, walnut furniture, thick carpets, standing toilets and hot & cold running water. Sounds like heaven!
All our newest designs have silk inside neck woven labels that won’t irritate skin, and they were made from a vintage 1957 silk shuttle loom, the same as vintage Nudie suits and vintage Hawaiian shirts.
As always, these are made of 100% pre-shrunk cotton for sensitive skin, breathability, and a comfortable fit. This t-shirt is a natural cream colored t-shirt – it is not white.
