This awesome shirt features a classic iron on Roach design which reads, "Let's Boogie" and shows a pimp eying up a woman standing beneath a nearby streetlight. This sweet design is thanks to Russ and Dennis Roush who were inspired in the early 60s by the California car scene and artists like Ed Roth, Stanley Mouse, and Von Dutch. The two sought to capture the imagery seen in Hot Rod Magazine and Zap Comix and repurpose it for use on t-shirts. Air brush and silk screen artist, Stan Peterson, was brought in to help grow the company, and Roach benefited not only from his art but knowledge of the iron on transfer process, which allowed Roach to mass produce their shirts more efficiently. Eventually Peterson took over the company along with John Baird, and they hired the head artist at Roth Studios, Ed Newton, to produce the majority of the art featured on Roach shirts.
Fits like a modern unisex adult extra small. There are some small repairs and a large light spot, see pics.
