THE NEW YORK RIPPER T-SHIRT
An infamous serial killer t-shirt available in black or white cotton.
Introducing our chilling and thought-provoking New York Ripper T-Shirt, a must-have for true crime enthusiasts and those who appreciate the darker side of history. Inspired by the infamous crimes of Richard Cottingham, this unique design captures the essence of a notorious era in New York City's criminal history.
Delve into the disturbing background of Richard Cottingham, a man who instilled fear in the hearts of many during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Cottingham, known as the New York Ripper, was a serial killer whose heinous acts shocked the nation. His crimes included a series of brutal murders, often characterized by mutilation and sadistic violence.
Born on November 25, 1946, in the Bronx, Richard Cottingham grew up in an unassuming working-class family. Little did anyone suspect the darkness that lurked within him. Cottingham's criminal spree began in the mid-1970s, where he targeted vulnerable women across New York City's seedy underbelly.
His modus operandi involved preying on sex workers and engaging in acts of extreme violence, often leading to the tragic loss of innocent lives. Cottingham's reign of terror escalated, leaving the city in a state of constant fear and apprehension.
However, justice eventually caught up with the New York Ripper. In 1980, Cottingham's crimes came to an end when he was arrested by the dedicated efforts of law enforcement agencies. His capture marked a turning point in the pursuit of justice for the victims and their grieving families.
Richard Cottingham's trial unfolded as a stark reminder of the evil that can reside within seemingly ordinary individuals. In 1981, he was found guilty on multiple counts of murder and other related charges. The court delivered a resounding verdict, ensuring that Cottingham would spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Our New York Ripper T-Shirt pays homage to the captivating and disturbing story of Richard Cottingham, serving as a conversation starter for true crime aficionados.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
