This sweet vintage muscle tank was made back in the 80s, by the world's largest athletic apparel supplier, Nike. The front of the shirt showcases the classic Nike swoosh logo, which was first introduced in the early 70s, however the iteration of the logo featured on this tee first debuted in 1978. Nike's origins can be traced back to the University of Oregon student athlete Phil Knight and his coach, Bill Bowerman. The pair originally established the brand as Blue Ribbon Sports and they worked with the Japanese shoe maker Onitsuka Tiger.

In 1971 the company dissolved their partnership with Tiger and launched their own line of footwear under the name Nike. Graphic design student, Carolyn Davidson, was responsible for creating the iconic swoosh logo. At the time she was only paid $35 for her design, but after the company went public in the 80s, Davidson was gifted a diamond ring and 500 shares of Nike stock as thanks for her work.
