INSPIRED BY THE SHELBY G.T.350 MUSTANG, READ THE STORY BELOW

Your Thoroughbred Crewneck has embroidery and felt appliqué.

While durable for machine wash, we suggest washing inside out, cold (30°) and lay flat to dry.

In order to best determine fit, we advise comparing our garment’s measurements to a similar garment you already own. Lay your garment flat and take all measurements from the outside of the garment. *Designed for a perfect fit on an average body type. Size up if you like a loose or baggier fit.

Our Shelby American™ Collection is inspired by Carroll Shelby and his legacy of high performance vehicles.

On April 17, 1964, the Ford Mustang debuted at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, NY. That same day, the new notchback appeared in Ford showrooms across America and close to 22,000 models were sold. The new Mustang was a success, but there was unfinished business for the Ford Motor Company.

 

The Chevrolet Corvette was dominating the sports car scene and Ford needed a response. Eight months later, they had it: the Shelby GT 350 Mustang. Armed with a 306-horsepower V-8, this modified version of the Mustang was a hit, capturing the SCCA B-Production Championship for three straight years.

The details tell a story

It's a fascinating process, the building of a garment. It starts with fabric, cut into pieces that passes through many hands, stitched thousands of times and scraped with ink.

But in the end, it becomes greater than all its parts. It tells a great story of design, craftsmanship and passion.

The chicken farmer

While tending to his chickens, Carroll Shelby's wife casually reminded him, "…don't you have a race to go to?".

Arriving late, with no time to change, he made his way straight to a first place finish – still wearing his hickory denim overalls. He made this 'fashion statement' his signature racing attire.

With a nod to his quirkiness, we've integrated the hickory striped pattern into the neck panel of this sweater.
