Bowling Shirts from AMERICANA Classic Vintage

From AMERICANA’s book A-Z of Classic American Clothing

Bowling shirts are short-sleeve shirts that are loosely fitted with a straight hem so that they can be worn un-tucked.  The collar of a bowling shirt often has a loop fastener that secures the top button, although this button is never fastened.  The shirt was designed with these specifications so that it would not interfere with the bowler’s movements.

Bowling Shirts are usually solid in color and can be decorated with a contrasting color, which made bowling teams easily identifiable in the lanes during competitions.  They can also have an embroidered bowling club insignia on the back and name of the wearer on the upper front.

Bowling shirts have been popular since the 1950s in the United States, when youth began wearing them as a cool look outside the confines of bowling alleys.  In the last several years, bowling shirts have become a status symbol amongst urban street gangs in the US, although seeing a person wearing a retro bowling shirt usually makes others smile.

Classic brands of bowling shirts to look out for include Hilton, King Louie, Pin Splitter, Service Bowling Shirt, Imperial and Da Vinci.

Bowlingskjortor

Bowlingskjortor är kortärmade lössittande skjortor med en rak fåll så att de kan bäras utanpå byxorna. Kragen på skjortan ofta har en tygögla som kan fästas över den översta knappen, trots att den knappen aldrig kannäpps. Skjortan designades på detta vis så att den ej skulle hindra bowlarens rörelser.

Bowlingskjortor är i regel enfärgade och kan dekoreras med en kontrasterande färg, så att de är lätta att identifiera under tävlingar. De kan också ha ett broderat märke på ryggen för den bowlingklubb spelaren tillhör och namnet på spelaren på övre framsidan av skjortan.

Bowlingskjortor har varit populära sedan 1950-talet när ungdomar i USA började ha dem på sig för att se coola ut. Under de senaste åren har bowlingskjortor blivit en statussymbol för ungdomsgäng i Amerikas städer, trots att folk ofta ler när de ser någon som har på sig en gammal bowlingskjorta.

Americana...STRIKE!

Klassiska märken är Hilton, King Louie, Pin Splitter, Service Bowling Shirt, Imperial and DaVinci.
