Rubin "Hurricane" Carter
"Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night" - so begins Bob Dylan's epic "Hurricane," and such remains the source of great mystery and controversy in the life of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter. The one-time contender for the middle weight crown is far more famous today as having been convicted and then, twenty years later, acquitted for a 1966 triple-murder shooting spree at a bar in Paterson, New Jersey. Passions still run deep about this case, and the fact remains that today the drama of Carter's life outside the ring has almost entirely obscured his achievements inside it.
Those are the achievements that we celebrate with this t-shirt, those of an innately ferocious fighter who learned his trade in prison, a damn-the-torpedoes practitioner of "the manly art of no defense," and a puncher of such startling volume and power that to call him "Hurricane" never seemed a question of colorful nicknaming so much as a merely an accurate description of a phenomenon in motion.

      A WORD TO THE WISE
      Our shirt bodies are 100% cotton, sweatshop free, made in the U.S. of A. They are slim cut and definitely shrink some after a machine drying. If you haven't flown with us before, we recommend taking a step up in size if you think you might be on the borderline. There is no shame in being extra extra large, my dude.
