Did you know, before it was called the US Revenue Cutter Service, it was called the United States Revenue-Marine. In his famous Federalist papers (#12), Alexander Hamilton called for...

"A few armed vessels, judiciously stationed at the entrances of our ports, might at small expense be made useful sentinels of the laws."

It wasn't until roughly July/August of 1894 was it referred to as the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service. The first order was for 10 cutters not to exceed $1,000 (with each cutter's master to supervise the construction of his own cutter). The price tag seemed unrealistic as three of the cutters exceeded this budget (With the USRC Massachusetts coming in at $2,050).  

So celebrate this long line of history with these threads and show pride in the sharing the same values set forth in 1790 as being the sentinels of the laws.

This gem of a shirt uses waterbased ink on a premium blend crew neck tee (50% Poly, 25% Cotton, 25% Rayon, 100% Awesome). It's got that soft, vintage feel you daydream about while you should be manning the helm. 

Note: This shirt is fashion fit, so if you're not a fan of tighter fitting shirts, we recommend you get a size larger than what you're used to.
