This Los Alamos, New Mexico T shirt is a reproduction from an original WWII design.
The shirt says “Los Alamos New Mexico” with a subtle mushroom cloud design that was also used on their patches. It’s said that the cloud and lighting bolt form a question mark, which symbolizes the unknown. The circle beneath is the atom, now split.
Los Alamos is where the majority of work was done on the Manhattan Project. The original T-shirt was an unexpected find, due to the secrecy of the project.
During WWII, athletic style t shirts were available for purchase at the PX and were commonly used in training and athletic situations. PT shirts with a variety of different unit logos are well documented in many WWII photographs.
This tee shirt is screened by hand and variation in colors naturally occur.
In addition, our WII Reproduction PT shirts have a spec tag screened inside the neck.
Just like the original t shirts, this reproduction is 100% cotton with a period correct narrow 5/8″ neck, shorter sleeves and a slim/snug fit. These WWII Reproductions are true to size. This WWII Los Alamos t-shirt comes in men’s sizes. Women’s sizes are available upon request. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
