About WWII B-17 Flying Fortress Denim Vest

This a german denim utility vest was transformed into an iconic WW2 authentic piece!
On the front you have a hand made and hand painted leather patch with 8th Air Force emblem. The patch was fully distressed to totally look authentic!

On the back, I painted a simple, grey B17 with dropping bombs. The entire art piece was slightly distressed by hand.

Craftsmanship:

Hand Printing Method

This t-shirt is 100% hand printed. It takes a couple of hours to a day to finish the printing of one t-shirt.
To apply the paint on the shirt, I use my custom-made stencils, Speedball paint and a pastel brush. Each t-shirt is unique! The stroke of the brush can’t be copied and pasted on each t-shirt. Each one has its own unique finish.
You’re getting an art piece, that no machine can reproduce.

Hand Weathering Method

Weathering is a long process that can take 1 to 2 days to finish. Each section of the shirt is carefully distressed with various type of tools such as: sand paper, paint, x-acto knifes, metal brushes, razors and bleach.

Hand Painted Packaging Method

Packaging is the last and most important part of the design process. Since this t-shirt is all hand painted, it’s only natural to have the same method applied to its packaging.
I used a recycled paper box, that I customized to look like a used ammo box. The olive drab color is my own acrylic mix and all the weathering is done my watercolor paint.
Finally, all the tags are water colored too (please look at the pictures). Every single detail, has a countless hours of hand work.
