Gracie vs. Kimura (Vintage)


This vintage t-shirt pays homage to the epic battle between Helio Gracie and Masahiko Kimura on October 23, 1951. The match was held at the world-famous Maracaná soccer stadium where over 20,000 people were in attendance, including the President of Brazil. To see a great mini-documentary on the fight between Gracie and Kimura, click here.

We've partnered with the premiere MMA lifestyle apparel company, Roots of Fight, to produce a limited number of vintage Gracie Brand garments. All the garments are custom built (not off the shelf), vintage dyed, and garment washed. The art is hand drawn and printed using specialty ink for the softest touch. Each garment is carefully constructed to fit exactly as if it were produced during the peak of the Gracie dynasty in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While wearing this vintage gear, don't be surprised if someone asks you if you trained at the original Gracie Academy with Carlos and Helio!

Garment Details: 100% Cotton, Vintage fit - slim body / relaxed collar, custom built, vintage dyed, specialty ink for soft touch.

Available Sizes: S, M, L ,XL, XXL

Great looking and feeling tee

This tee looks and feels great. The quality appears to be top notch and fits true to size. Can't say enough about how soft the shirt is. Feels like one of your old favorite tees that has been through many washes and is silky soft. The screen print looks awesome and if you are into jiu jitsu you will love sporting this shirt. I thought it was priced a little high (not used to paying $30+ for a tee), but if it holds up it will be well worth it.

I like the way the shirt fits me, but it is made so that it's sticks to your body. It's not a baggy shirt and if you don't want a tight fit you might want to go a size bigger. The fabric itself seems to have a bit of stretch to it and I really like the way it feels. I really like the vintage feel of the print as well and the shirt itself has a bit of vintage tone to it, so it looks a bit worn in. (But it's not, the fabric itself feels very new) There is a print on the back of the shirt, but it's done very well and tastefully and I was very happy with that print on the back. Overall this shirt has gone beyond my expectations, and if all of gracie academy shirts are like this I might want them to open up a apparel shop by me. lol. :D

So, I thought this shirt looked super dope since the first time I saw it. Then I saw the price and held off on getting it. Then, I got an email with 20% off the Gracie store so I used that to purchase the shirt. What I didn't know was that the shirt is 70% bamboo. If I would have known that, I would have purchased it before I had a coupon. Bamboo is super soft and the most comfortable shirts ever and this one is no different. As soon as I pulled it outta the bag I knew I was in for a treat. The fit is also spot on. It hugs me just enough in all the right places. Not to mention the super sick design. I absolutely love this shirt and wish I would've purchased it when it was first released. If you were on the fence, buy it! You won't be disappointed.

just got mine in. i ordered a size up from M to L because my abs and such are still under a slight protective layer of jiggly awesomeness, and this shirt makes me very happy. as another reviewer said, it hugs in all the right places and forgives you enough so you can wear it in public comfortably (lol). actually, you can wear it with confidence. the material feels amazing. i may just wear this shirt forever.
