This cool vintage tee was made back in the 70s with a colorful graphic of a cartoon rat water skiing, surrounded by flowers and the words "River Rat". Funky and vibrant graphics, like the one featured on this tee, really started to gain mainstream popularity in the 70s. 1959 was the year that plastisol ink was invented, and this new ink changed the t-shirt industry as it allowed for graphics to be screen printed onto clothing relatively quickly and easily. Graphic artists took inspiration from 60s counterculture, rock and roll, and underground comix to create unique and awesome t-shirt designs, and from there graphic tees flourished into a wardrobe staple for many people.
Fits like a modern unisex over-sized youth extra large. There is light discoloration on the front, see pics.
