An Old English "CFA" short for Colt Firearms, motif on the front chest of this standard fit t-shirt.  The back features elements of the Colt seal that was used throughout wartime on stock certificates and other company certificates where it was used to authenticate transactions.  Artisans create the sun faded look by hand, each piece is unique.  

This particular seal features an early version of the rampant Colt that is seen prancing rather than rearing, an old english C replaces the hands of God holding lightening from the original.  Made from 100% Cotton with a distressed garment-dyed antique finish.

This fit is our Standard fit T which is more forgiving through the chest with a longer length of the body and the sleeves than our "muscle" tee.

As always Made in America.

About the CFA & Seal Short Sleeve T-Shirt in Sun faded Gray

Rampant Colt

Sam Colt was an innovator in many ways, he was among the first to harness the power of the brand name and image. For example, Colt used a four-headed colt image inlaid into the first pistols he ever made in Patterson New Jersey. He began developing the idea of the Colt as a representation for the brand. As his ideas of the colt imagery grew so did the size of his business and the opportunity to use them at scale. There are literally hundreds of colt images that have been uses as engravings, letterhead, stamps and even as the lead image on the stock certificates of the 1940s.

Colt Signature

Fortunately for us Sam Colt had great penmanship. The signature we use comes directly from a letter that exists which he signed and dated. There are many such documents and on every one his signature is just as crisp and clean. This signature started the thread of authenticity that weaves throughout Colt Manufacturing.
