Thanks to Ben Powers for his helpful suggestion about the shirt color—not as dark as the shirt we use for the WWII soldier shirt—and for additional information for the hang tag that helps deliver an even more powerful account of what actually happened.

And thanks to Larisa for getting this all going by pointing out the anniversary last fall and encouraging me to come up with a special design even though, up until then, almost all of our designs were focused on the Revolutionary War.

Very happy!

I received my shirt yesterday and love the quality, look, and fit! The design is great and has already gotten compliments from the family before I’ve even worn it. I also received a D-day magnet that has found a home in my office. Great quality products. Thanks!

GI Shirt

I purchased the GI History Nerd shirt in OD green. I love the quality. I got a Ben Franklin as a gift and a LG ran small for me so this time I got an XL and it fits me well. Keep in mind that they are slimmer patterns.

Thanks for your order and your review, Dave. Glad this shirt is the a good fit for you. We'll follow up separately to get you the right size 'History Nerd' with Ben Franklin shirt. For others who want to confirm that their size, you'll find size charts here: https://store.thehistorylist.com/pages/t-shirt-size-chart — Lee

"I covet your shirt"

Whenever I wear this shirt, no matter where I go, someone tells me they want my shirt. One person actually said, "I covet your shirt. I also make a new history nerd friend.
