We teamed up with our chums over at Heel & Toe Apparel to bring our air-cooled Guards Red Shark Werks project 964 to life in the form of this sporty, light-weight & comfy hoodie!
Made and printed in the USA using water based inks, these hoodies are ultra soft and rather stylish. They're a great way to keep warm at those early Cars and Coffee gatherings or track day driver's meetings. Special thanks to Lane Skelton from DWA for the artwork.

We use a medium-weight eco poly-blend Royal Apparel hoodie for this design, made sustainably, and sweatshop-free, in the USA. This incredibly plush and comfortable hoodie lined with the snuggliest of fleece is sure to become a favorite. This fabric is a middle ground between Tri-Blend and 100% Cotton—blending the two fabrics (50% Polyester made from recycled plastic bottles and 50% Organic Ring-Spun Cotton) increases strength, decreases weight, and adds softness and breathability.
Our hoodies are silk-screened by skilled craftsmen in Portland, Oregon, at a shop known for their work with water-based and discharge inks, and for the first time here, high solids acrylic water base ink (HSA). Unlike plastisol inks which place a layer of plastic-like ink on the surface, these special inks actually dye the fibers of the fabric. This leaves a printed area that is light and soft to the touch that won’t crack and disintegrate from wear and washing. When used on a poly-blend fabric (such as this hoodie), the discharge agent in the ink bleaches the original dye from the organic fabric; this creates a slight heathered effect, giving parts of the print a broken-in or vintage feel. Please note that some fading of the graphic is normal when washing the first time.
These hoodies are charcoal with a red & gold graphic on the back, along with gold "SHARK WERKS" sleeves and a few little details enthusiasts will appreciate.
