Triumvir – Victorian Thieves T-Shirt

September 1 sees the release of the Triumvir Australasian Exclusive “Victorian Thieves” T. Coinciding with the Fall 1 drop, will be this very special product made exclusively for select Triumvir accounts in Australia and New Zealand.
The T will be available in Sydney (Espionage), Brisbane (Laced), Auckland (Qubic), and online at FreshIn.com with only 12 produced for each store.
For this regional exclusive release, the team at Triumvir took the time to come up with a concept that fitted the project, explained here by Brandon of Triumvir:

“Queen Victoria- Many Australians have ancestry linked to the United Kingdom, and scores of them still see the Queen as a direct/indirect symbol of their past. The Thieves- When Australia was first occupied by the British; She was a transport ground for prisoners from the Empire of the United Kingdom. The Arm & Sword was actually taken from the flag of Thomas Tew (a pirate from the 17th century), however- we altered it to a sword that was commonly known as a “Gothic Hilt” from the Victorian Era. We also incorporated a tattoo with the stars of the Southern Cross shown on the Australian flag to mirror the fact that in the past, Thieves were tattooed and branded.”
Check out more pictures of the actual t-shirt after the jump.
