Grazing in the Grass Men's T-shirt

Unless your a jazz fan, most people never heard of Hugh Masekela.  But you've heard of his featured song, “Grazing in the Grass,” which is one of the anthems of the late ‘60s.  A trumpeter whose sound infused melodic jazz with contemporary soul during the ‘60s, recorded “Grazing in the Grass” in 1968 as a piece designed to capture the vibe of the era.  It worked: “Grazing in the Grass” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Singles chart on July 26, 1968, sold over 4 million copies and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Pop Performance – Instrumental. 

A year after its release, the Friends of Distinction covered “Grazing in the Grass” creating an up-tempo, dance version and adding vocals.  It was a stone-cold winner reaching #3 and #5 on the Billboard Pop and R&B charts respectively in 1969. 

The groove-centric cover art that reflects the feel of the song works perfectly for a t-shirt.  If you’re wondering what “Bajabula Bonke” is that’s the B-side of the single and means the Healing Song.  The graphic is printed on a soft 4.3 oz. premium tri-blend t-shirt.  The shirt runs a little small so if you like a looser fit, order the next larger size.

The T-shirt

The t-shirt we use to print the designs is from a company call Next Level Apparel.  They make some of the best t-shirts in the apparel biz.  Our base t-shirt is their premium tri-blend crew neck t-shirt.   This t-shirt is a mashup of 50% polyester, 25% combed ring spun and 25% rayon.  That mix makes for three things:  an extremely soft t-shirt that drapes nicely with a vintage-type look.   So you’re getting a cool looking shirt that feels great.  The t-shirt weighs 4.3 ounces.  So you’re not wearing a bulletproof vest but a mid-weight garment.  And since the fabric is mostly polyester and rayon, there is little, if any, shrinkage.  Now the t-shirt does run a little small so if you like a roomer fit, please select the next size above what you normally wear.

Also, we don’t believe in offering you a one-style-fits-all or “unisex” t-shirt (whatever that is).  We give the fellas and ladies a t-shirt that’s specifically made for them and their unique features.  If a particular style of t-shirt isn’t available for a gender then we’ll let you know and recommend a size in that shirt that may accommodate you. 

In the future, we’ll rollout different styles of tees like a scoop neck (for that off-the-shoulder Flashdance look), long sleeve, hoody and ¾ sleeve raglan so you’ll have a variety of options to choose from year round.

Care Instructions

We recommend turning your t-shirt inside out when washing.  Please machine wash in cold water with like colors.  It’s best to hang dry but it’s cool if you tumble dry on low setting.  Please do not iron on the decoration.
