Fight in the Shade T-Shirt


According to the Greek historian Plutarch, during the Battle of Thermopylae between the Spartan 300 and the Persians, a Spartan warrior complained to King Leonidas that "Because of the arrows of the barbarians (Persians) it is impossible to see the sun.” To which Leonidas responded with his typical Laconic wit: "Won't it be nice, then, if we shall have shade in which to fight them?”

Our Fight in the Shade tee is inspired by these immortal words from King Leonidas. It’s a reminder both to keep fighting even when the odds are long and the going will be tough, and that you have the power to turn every obstacle into an aid towards victory.

The shirt is a 50/50 cotton/poly blend. Graphic design by Tankfarm & Co.
