Fleur de lis Blackout Tee
Back in the Spring of 2007, LSU student Jesse Wong hand drew this fleur-de-lis for Storyville. At the time, Storyville was one of several local businesses that were used as "clients" of Professor Rod Parker's senior graphic design course. Storyville lucked out and was assigned to the student team of Jesse Wong, Brandon Jantz and Mary-Margaret Shread (collectively known as Mixed Nuts).
Nearly two years later, Jesse is in Brooklyn, Mary-Margaret is in College Station and Brandon is in Dallas. But many of the graphics that were created in that LSU classroom have already been incorporated into the Storyville shops and website. And here's another one -- "Fleur-de-lis Blackout."
Fleur de lis Blackout is printed on an ultra lightweight poly-cotton blend American Apparel track shirt with gold ink. This tri-blend tee shirt is available exclusively in Storyville and is modeled by LSU student James Knobloch as well as University of Texas at Austin students Joel Rajan, Ashley Berwick and Christina Tran. There's also a photo of Red Stick Roller Derby Girl Sigourney Morrison wearing the t-shirt during the 2009 Storyville Fashion Show in Baton Rouge (photo by Kim Foster). Finally, there are a couple photos of Alicia Schulz modeling the Fleur-de-lis Blackout dress during the 2009 Fashion in the Park fashion show in New Orleans. These photos were taken by Timothy Pham of Studio Pham and Lawles Bourque.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS item?
Most Storyville tees are printed on 100% cotton, American Apparel brand tee shirts. These shirts are not pre-shrunk, so they will shrink if they are placed in the dryer. The unisex-cut American Apparel tee shirt is cut like a traditional men's tee shirt, although it runs about a half size smaller than Hane's, Fruit of the Loom or Gildan brand t-shirts. The female cut American Apparel tee shirt is significantly smaller than the unisex cut (a female XL tee is about the same size as a unisex medium tee). Compared to the unisex cut, the female cut tee also has smaller sleeves, is more narrow in the torso and is shorter in length.
If a product is printed on something other than a 100% cotton American Apparel t-shirt, it will be noted on the product page. Below are the sizing charts for the unisex cut and female-specific cut American Apparel crew t-shirts.
