Jimi Hendrix and the Flying Eyeball are images indelibly linked in the psychedelic poster art of the late Rick Griffin. Griffin discovered The Eyeball, in a much more benign form, in the 1950s auto detailing art of California pinstriper Von Dutch and reworked it over time to become the winged, bloodshot figure parting a ring of fire with serpent-like tentacles. The highlighted lettering, vivid color, and complicated imagery reflect Griffin's attention to precise details and the influence of Indian lore and archeology on his work. The Eyeball became associated exclusively with Hendrix's music in future billings and recordings of his performances.
Men's t-shirts are made using the finest combed ringspun cotton to give you the softest, smoothest t-shirt around. A select few are a polyester-cotton blend which increases the t-shirts stretch and softness. These shirts are designed to fit like they did in the 70's and 80's, tailored to the body for a more youthful fit. We suggest thinking a size up when ordering these tees. Our "full cut" shirts are a little more forgiving like the classic beefy tee. The quality and feel remain the same. Be sure to check out our sizing chart to help assure that you'll get the perfect fit on the first try.
Should a tee not fit on the first try, we offer a quick and easy return policy (domestic orders only).
