POPCORN SUTTON MOONSHINER T-SHIRT
An American Icon t-shirt available in black cotton.
'Jesus Turned Water Into Wine, I Turned It Into Likker.'
The Popcorn Sutton Moonshiner T-Shirt celebrates the legendary American Appalachian moonshiner and bootlegger from Maggie Valley, North Carolina.
Never straying far from his rural roots in Maggie Valley, Marvin 'Popcorn' Sutton found a certain degree of fame thanks to his appearance in a number of documentaries featuring the lives of mountain men and hillbilly folk. Sutton also self published an autobiography and guide to moonshine production called Me and My Likker, reviewed by no less than the New York Times who described it as "a rambling, obscene, and often hilarious account of his life in the trade".
Despite countless run ins with the law, Sutton had managed to avoid a prison sentence, that was until 2008 when he was convicted for illegally distilling spirits and firearm possession and was sentenced to 18 months jail time. Sutton was discovered by his wife in his green Ford Fairmont with the engine still running, an apparent suicide coming just days before his prison sentence was due to begin.

Please be aware that we do not hold any items in stock. All t-shirts are printed on demand when ordered by our trusted print partners in the UK. Because of this, there is a required lead time from the date of purchase for your order to be picked, printed, packaged and dispatched.
Average lead times are between 3 and 5 working days. During exceptionally busy times (for example Christmas) production can take longer.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE
Due to the current lockdown situation and social distancing guidelines, workforces have been drastically reduced at every stage of the production process, from t-shirt suppliers to printers. This has had the unfortunate knock on effect of extending lead times significantly as a far smaller number of t-shirts can be produced and shipped.
Our printers are currently advising that orders can take up to 7 working days to be shipped.
While we appreciate this is far from ideal, we hope you can understand that these are exceptional circumstances and that everything that can be done is being done to get these times back down to normal levels.
Royal Mail suggest the following average delivery times.

Please note, we use First Class services within the UK, and many items can arrive extremely quickly (often 1-2 working days) however we have to advise that items can take their working day periods as stated in the average delivery time above. There is no guaranteed delivery date or tracking number available for First Class post.
Due to Royal Mail guidelines we have to allow a certain length of time for items to be delivered before they will be considered 'lost in post'. For deliveries in the UK this is 10 days, the rest of the world the wait period is 28 days. While it is rare for items to go missing, it can sometimes happen but on those rare occasions we'll do everything we can to assist and will, where necessary, arrange for a free replacement to be issued.
