The "vintage t-shirt" has become an obvious worldwide obsession. Many companies have tackeled the recreation of rocker t's and pop culture graphic t's. We see them all over the place in various fits and they continue to sell because the "past" is proven cool.
Aviator Nation has taken the vintage t-shirt reproduction to the next level. Paige Mycoskie, creator of Aviator Nation, has spent years collecting her own vintage t's. She has never been into buying the reproductions of rocker t's and other vintage reproductions because in her opinion the new ones don't look or feel anything like a true vintage piece. Paige's obsession with authentic vintage t-shirts, specifically "vintage sports t-shirts" has inspired Aviator Nation.
The passion Mycoskie has for creating a line that really lives up to authentic vintage left her no choice but to begin studying how t-shirts and sweatshirts were actually produced in the past. Paige has studied vintage fabrics all the way back to what machines were used to weave the fibers and which fibers were being used. Paige has studied screen printing, inks and techniques used prior to modern development. She has even managed to find sewing machines used to sew and finish garments in the 60's and 70's and brought them into her manufacturing plant in Los Angeles so that even the stitchwork is authentically done the exact way it was done in years past.
