Would you believe us if we told you we found this design in Alfred Victor DuPont's carriage house?

Didn't think so.

But Alfred du Pont was the guy who, in 1892, donated $150,000 to the board of Louisville Public Schools to establish a training school to teach young men industrial arts ("manual") skills that would fit them for their duties in life.

The Victorian building was built on the corner of Brook and Oak Streets by the firm of Clark and Loomis, which also designed the Speed Art Museum and Waverly Hills Sanatorium.

After Manual moved out of the building it was used as a Middle School until 1974 when it was converted to apartments.

So, let all ye Crimson fans pick one of these up and take it home. In three basic colors including an interesting crimson-on-red that we think will look purty darn hip.

This thick cotton t-shirt makes for a go-to wardrobe staple! It's comfortable, soft, and its tubular construction means it's less fitted.
