The photo shown doesn't look like the tee. The collar is not distressed, the heather grey is lighter in person and the letters are navy & black, which I like. I recommend updating the image to match the actual shirt. Luckily I really like the shirt that I received, thanks!

There are reputable shops I looked at first but I really liked the graphic of this shirt and for the price I thought it would be of higher quality. The yellow was super brite not at all like the altered photo which makes it look washed out. The graphics were pretty and I think they were trying to make it look old or vintage but it just look cheap, amateur and blotchy. Very disappointed because the pics look so good. I contacted the shop letting them know I didn't like it and wanted to send it back and I got a curt email informing me they don't accept returns. My fault... read the shop policies.

A Short Story about AVTOMOBILE

AVTOMOBILE was actually inspired from a structural drawing of a car. Originally AVTOMOBILE was used by Maris and a couple of artists when they collaborated to have art galleries. We use the letter "v" to differentiate from cars and other automobiles. It's actually an old English "u" , but still pronounced automobile.

Maris and I both come from design backgrounds, graduating
from Columbus college of art and design in Columbus, Ohio. Him being more illustration/graphics driven and I follow along the lines of fashion design and fashion illustration. When we first met we were living in the big apple working for a cooperate co. American eagle outfitters. Both feeling a bit stale and stagnate with the corporate world we combined our talents and skills to create our own adventure. To birth a business in which reflects our personal taste style and love for art and American history.

Both being from Midwest , him michigan and i ohio. Dispite the states' famous arch rivalry we bring the love for the outdoors combined with current trends and vintage apparel to the table. As you walk through the store all of your senses are being stimulated. By the smell of piñon insense uplifting memories of summer camp and your cottage in the upper peninsula. From the feeling of the soft, worn in fabrics of the Avto brand. To the sight in which you see the walls covered in watercolor illustrations and exposed brick at wall. Each piece/garment has had a personal touch from Maris and I. From marketing tags to hidden details throughout piece.
