This is a LIMITED EDITION Tee we only launch for the summer and part of our Independence Day series. Once we sell out we will not remake it until the next summer.


Elizabeth Griscom "Betsy" Ross, also known by her second and third married names, Ashburn and Claypoole, is widely credited with making the first American flag. According to family tradition, upon a visit from General George Washington, commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, in 1776, Ross convinced George Washington to change the shape of the stars he had sketched for the flag from six-pointed to five-pointed by demonstrating that it was easier and speedier to cut the latter. However, there is no archival evidence or other recorded verbal tradition to substantiate this story of the first American flag, and it appears that the story first surfaced in the writings of her grandson in the 1870s (a century after the fact), with no mention or documentation in earlier decades.

She did though make flags for the Pennsylvania Navy during the American Revolution.

We decided to use her last know name which was Elizabeth Claypoole as her signature under her portrait.

Our shirts run a little small and are athletic fit so if you are in between sizes or are unsure, please order up one size.

Perfect Tee!

Quickly became one of my favorites. I’m tall, and this shirt fell perfectly at my hips. Not too short like some slimmer fits are. Highly recommend. Super soft but great structure. Bad to the bone. Thanks for existing! New Fave T-shirt company. I’ve ordered two more!
