Velva Sheen is one of those companies that takes us back to the good ol’ days when sportswear was made really, really well made and everything seemed right in the world. Hailing from the hard to spell city of Cincinnati back in 1936, Velva Sheen made their name making sweats for college sports teams and t-shirts for the US Marine Corps.

These days their stuff is still made in the U.S., and for that Maggie Cassidy-era Jack Kerouac look, their t-shirts can’t really be beaten.
