WeLoveFine is giving Star Wars fans even more to celebrate on the 4th of July: a special sale and the launch of two new Star Wars T-shirt series!
I grew up with Star Wars. It was as a huge part of my childhood development. I am 31 years old, Episode IV is older than I am. I never had a chance to see the original trilogy in the theaters. My first memories of Star Wars came from watching The Empire Strikes Back on an old VHS tape, recorded off of television. It wasn’t until we received a collector’s edition VHS set for Christmas that I experienced a Star Wars movie without the bits of commercials. Regardless, these stories are so powerful that, for me, three decades have passed and the films are still exciting and have progressed from simply a piece of pop culture to a modern day mythology.
In February, We Love Fine, purveyors of some of the Internet’s most inventive and creative fan-made tees, asked designers to call on the power of the dark side for their Dark Side Design Contest. The theme of the contest: submit T-shirt designs featuring only Sith, bounty hunters, and other scum and villainy of the Star Wars universe. Fans embraced the challenge, and now the winners — selected by a panel of guest celebrity judges — can be revealed!
You can now show off your allegiance to the Empire or the Rebellion at work, on the golf course, or anywhere else a collared shirt is required. The first official Star Wars polos have arrived.
WeLoveFine! has released its debut line of Star Wars polo shirts, featuring both Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire logos, as well as Darth Vader and Stormtrooper character icons. Each shirt is 100 percent cotton, and every logo is embroidered on the left front chest of the shirt.
Check out the rest of the shirts after the jump, and be happy knowing that you can now dress up for slightly-fancy occasions and still show off your Star Wars love.
