Deep summer. You're in the backyard, eating a hot dog. A few folks gather around a TV propped up in an open window, rabbit ears bent just right. The set shows a flickering account of a game across the country. Endless rows of color and sound. A green, empty field stretches for miles. It's like nothing most of these barbecuers have ever seen. Nobody seems quite sure what to do.
Until the anthem starts. Then they get it.
Pasadena, California, 1994. The game felt new, the world came to our doorstep, and we greeted them with a uniquely American message: we're all about hard work, hot dogs and blue jeans here, friends. It's been nearly 20 years since the only American World Cup, and about as long since we had a national shirt as striking.
Our new shirt, The Pasadena, pays tribute to the landmark jersey, club, and event that we all enjoyed almost 20 summers ago. It's made for US fans who want to honor those moments, while cheering for this generation's national team as they march on to the next Cup.
White and red on a (denim-inspired) blue-heather cotton-poly tri-blend. Count the stars - there are 20 of 'em.
Note: Clean Sheet makes shirts in batches. We'll be making and shipping a batch of Pasadena shirts in July (2013), so they'll be out to fans in plenty of time for the build-up to the 2014 World Cup.
Shirts are shipping to original Pasadena orders now, and we have a very limited amount of overstock which will become available on 7/31. Order quickly! Also, if you're a stylish female soccer fan (or are purchasing with one in mind), remember that our small and medium sizes are great fits for women!
This is a sturdy, soft t-shirt with stretchy, slightly form-fitting feel. Available in small, medium, large, x-large and xx-large (+$2.25).
