This awesome vintage t-shirt is from the Nike Air Jordan "Do You Know?" commercial campaign that was launched in 1991. The campaign consisted of a series of TV commercials that were written, directed, and starred Spike Lee. In the commercial Lee portrayed the character Mars Blackmon from the 1986 film Shes's Gotta Have It, which Spike Lee also wrote, directed, and starred in. This shirt has a graphic of Spike Lee as Blackmon in the middle with the text "Do You Know?" repeating across the front.
The Air Jordan line of clothing was created by Nike in honor of NBA player Michael Jordan. The line began with a pair of sneakers produced exclusively for Jordan in 1984. The shoes were eventually released to the public later that year. Their ad campaign featuring Lee helped to boost sneaker sales exponentially and is credited as a landmark in the evolution of sneakers into massively profitable fashion staples.
Fits like a modern unisex adult over-sized large. There is a small repair on the back of the left shoulder, see pics.
