Not sure what came over us when we started the brand, but it just seemed to make sense. We needed an image that encapsulated how we felt. We, Violent Gentlemen, honor the unwritten rule of hard-fought battles on the ice to the handshakes at the end of a series - in the end, we celebrate the sport of hockey above all else, regardless of the outcome of the game. To us as a clothing brand, this image said it all. The Handshake would become one of the first shirts we ever printed somewhere around 11 years ago.
However, this image has become a stable in other areas of our brand. If you have ever ordered from us before, you're received a card we add with every order we ship. Our Handshake photo on one side and this writeup on the other.
He returned in the third period to skate through the Bruins' defense and score the game-winning goal against "Sugar Jim" Henry. After going to war with each other, the men met at center ice for this iconic handshake - a tradition of ultimate respect, that some 60 years later would be the building blocks of our brand."
The original tee had been there for some of our biggest life moments... like when Brian announced to the world he was having a baby boy, or when I [Hammer] bought my first gladiator helmet and so many more.
We're proud to have our clothing be a part of all your life moments so on this reissue we decided to print it on our Premium Tee to give the design a special place in the lineup. The Premium Tees have been a fan favorite with their roomy fit, high end fabric, and sturdy strength.
