ABOUT THE DESIGN:
The Owl design was first tattooed around the early 40's and usually meant that u were a burglar or a safe-cracker. This particular owl was a nod to the old Tsarist days, before the Soviets gained power. The slogan "Got mit Uns" is German for "God with Us" and is a "grin" at the Soviet Administration which outlawed religion and God. This tattoo also represented freedom, and authority.
On the front is the Flying Skull Logo, an old "Leader of the Expropriates" tattoo. A popular tattoo during the 50's, it meant the wearer was a leader of a group of men who partook in separating Soviet underground millionaires from a little of their "extra" resources.
Each hoodie also has the "MIR" logo printed on the front pocket or the side of the hood. "MIR" is the Russian word for "peace", but in the criminal world it's an acronym that stands for "Menya Ispravit Rastrel" which translates roughly to "Execution will Reform Me".
Silk Screen Printed on an Organic Cotton medium and light weight fleece lined cotton hoodies.
