They nicknamed the USS Constitution "Old Ironsides" for her ability to take an absolute beating in battle and still be floating when the smoke settled. Old Ironsides went 42-0 before she was finally retired, and is now the oldest commissioned battleship in the world still afloat.
"Her deck, once red with heroes' blood,
Where knelt the vanquished foe,
When winds were hurrying o'er the flood,
And waves were white below,
No more shall feel the victor's tread,
Or know the conquered knee;--
The harpies of the shore shall pluck
The eagle of the sea!"
-- from Old Ironsides, Oliver Wendell Holmes

The fit is perfect for me and I love that we are celebrating our history of naval warfare with the worlds undefeated American ship. I will be buying more from you! God bless America!
Old Ironsides is a perfect shirt!
Great fit! and awesome quality! like always!
Great shirt. Excellent fit. Excellent feel. Felt 1776x more American from the second I put it on.
Great shirt, a well thought out and respectful design for a great American legend, not the tacky cartoonish type. Very soft shirt and so glad I ordered a size up, fits perfect. - JR
