Like the famous Join or Die political cartoon, the Unite or Die image is meant to have the same representation. It is a disjointed snake making up the colonies of the United States before its formation. The Unite or Die image is very rare and uncommon, and honestly we have had trouble finding more information regarding it. It was seen on John Holt's Masthead of his newspaper, a very bold image and trend for newspapers of the time. Whether it had anymore meaning other than a heading of a newspaper is up in the air. We loved the imagery though and had to use it on a tee. Below is a photo and a link to the original copy where you can buy it for a cool $18,000.
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.
Ultra Soft Tri-Blend (50% Polyester / 25% Cotton / 25% Rayon) construction.
***This shirt is thinner and lighter than our normal shirts because of the Tri-Blend vintage construction. Please be aware it's a little more slim-fitting than a regular t-shirt -- you may have to order up one size.
Purchased as a gift for my brother-in-law; shirt arrived just as pictured. Excellent quality and also included a large, complimentary 1776 United decal as well! Will definitely be buying more clothing in the future, keep up the great work!
