From the M.Willis website:
The anchor’s ring, stock (crossbar) and shank (neck) are offset against the Clean Sheet crest, creating negative space within the shield shape. As we worked with the components, we were able to realize a wonderful secondary meaning: the negative space within the crest roughly corresponds to a stylized map of the southern Narragansett Bay and Newport, Rhode Island. +
The Rhode Island Shirt is made from 100% ring-spun, combed cotton, and like all of our shirts, manufactured ethically, and designed and printed to the highest standards right here in the USA.
