There may be an American-themed shopping bonanza going on right now (thanks, Olympics), but just one look at Gap's new celebratory tees has us thinking they may have, in fact, taken the patriotic cake
. The company just released an exclusive collection of vintage-style T-shirts for men, women, and kiddies, featuring some of the coolest old-school artwork from Olympic Games past. And, between the affordable price tag (under $30!) and year-round wearability (no splashy 2012 graphics!), these duds may be the best way to show off your American pride without looking like a walking, talking Uncle Sam sandwich board.
The women's selection — tank tops and T-shirts in colors like light blue and pink — are feminine and somewhat understated, but the men's tees are where it's at
. Soft-knit vintage tees featuring bold logos from Tokyo '64, Montreal '76, and a mega-cool heather grey Barcelona '92 shirt make it look like you had to spend hours digging for them at a vintage shop
instead of popping into the nearest Gap store.
Take a peek at the selection
, and if you figure out a way to squeeze into child-sized clothes, let us know: That Seoul '88
boys' shirt is way too cool for preschool.
