Aerial Patent - Oxblood Short Sleeve
On September 3, 1895, Chief A.B. Cairnes of the San Diego Fire Department patented one of the very first designs for an Aerial fire apparatus. In an unprecedented effort, Hook and Irons has collaborated with the San Diego History Museum to license and bring this bit of American fire history to life.
Reproduced from the original patent drawing and in true H&I style, you can now celebrate this interesting slice of our history. Printed with no feel ink on a super light weight cotton tee, the shirt runs true to size and is pre-shrunk. Printed in the USA on an American Apparel tee, the Aerial Patent tee is one of the best selling shirts in our Signature Line.
