Gage + Desoto 1989 Tour/Lemond T-Shirt $0.00
In 1989, the world saw arguably the greatest Tour de France ever. Greg LeMond won by only eight seconds in the final time trial over Laurent Fignon, and the race solidified America?s place in international cycling (not to mention making the Oakley Factory Pilot an icon of the sport).
In celebration of LeMond's feat, Gage + Desoto produced this fabulous t-shirt. Who (or what) is Gage + Desoto? Just like you and me, they're bike racing nerds. But unlike you and me they have the sort of design nous to be thought of as trendsetters in the hyper-self conscious design scene of Brooklyn. Let's ride their coattails and look fabulous, shall we?
This is an American Apparel Poly-Cotton Short Sleeve Crew Neck shirt. It's 50% polyester and 50% combed cotton. The combed cotton is what gives American Apparel tees their ultra-soft and worn-in feel with a superior drape. It's designed to be slim-fitting and is unisex.

Nice and soft...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
What a great shirt to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Lemond's incredible comeback!!!

"It never gets easier, you just go faster."
Soft fabric, sweet cut and fit, and a fun, subtle design has earned this shirt a spot in my starting rotation. The color and print have withstood a number of washings and still look bright. American Apparel is now my favorite brand of shirt, and I am glad to see companies like this and Twin Six using them as their shirts. Their fabrics and cuts alone make them stand out, and manufacturing them sweatshop-free right here in Los Angeles puts them over the top.
Gota rep the true American biking icon, who did it all without the dope. This shirt fits great (5'10", 160lbs is a dead on medium) and looks awesome.
