On Aug. 1, 2016 Grand Rapids, Mich.-based lifestyle company, The Mitten State (TMS), has partnered with General Motors to develop an exclusive new line of t-shirts inspired by the company’s iconic and vintage performance cars. The new premium t-shirts offer a modern shape, fit, and feature a vintage look that is revved up to celebrate the passion of auto-lovers in authentic and fashionable designs.
The partnership was formed as a unique way to help General Motors celebrate its rich vehicle heritage. Being auto-enthusiasts themselves, the owners at The Mitten State, Scott Zubrickas and Will Bransdorfer, gladly accepted the licensing opportunity.
“General Motors approached us with the idea and of course we were thrilled to be a part of it,” said Will Bransdorfer, co-owner of The Mitten State. “Being fans of vintage muscle cars ourselves, and with Michigan’s historic connection to the automotive industry, we knew it would be a perfect fit. It’s been a fun history lesson working with GM to explore their logo and photo archives, some of which haven’t seen the light of day for decades.”
