Our exclusive History Nerd design with a World War II soldier.

The shirt: We’re offering your choice of fabrics:

  • 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt — Knitted, dyed, and sewn in the USA. 4.3 oz. XS - 3X. See size chart.
  • Our standard 4.3 oz. poly-cotton shirt that gets rave reviews. Our softest shirt. It's also our thinnest and lightest. It is very high-quality and long-wearing, but it is thin and light. Lots of people love them, which you can see in the reviews, but if you judge t-shirt quality based on weight or thickness, do not get this one. XS - 4X. See size chart.

Note that the $3 price difference for the 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt is our higher wholesale cost; there is no additional margin.

    This same History Nerd design with a World War II Soldier is available as a women's v-neck shirt.

    If you are looking for our D-Day shirt, you'll find it here.

            D_Day shirt

            Shirt was well made, very good quality for the price; personally I’d have preferred more color options, but understand the color choice particularly fit that event. I love the different historical events for which things are offered- best totality of choices s of any website I’ve seen and my information isn’t shared(very important to me)

            Highly Recommend

            Top Notch!

            Purchased 3 different t-shirts. Each was of impeccable quality and truly unique in design. Was pleased to see that they use Next Level Tees (my personal favorite in that they wash & fit well and feel amazing). Will be back for Christmas!
