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.

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.
