Roach Studios – An American Original Since 1962
In the 1950’s and 1960’s tee shirt art was at its apex. The entire industry today owes homage to a small group of individuals and companies who took the decoration of tee shirts to a generation that grew up on cars, surfing, motorcycles, and early extreme sports, and established a fashion trend that is responsible for billions of dollars of sales at retail each year. The early pioneers included the legendary names of Roach Studios™, Hang Ten™, Kenneth “Von Dutch™” Howard, and Ed “Big Daddy™” Roth, just to name four. Roach Studios™ which designed and produced some of the most critically acclaimed designs ever placed on a tee shirt was at the forefront of this revolution. Today Brian Peterson, son of one of the founders of Roach, is resurrecting the label and the art. Brian’s thought builds upon today’s love of the past and a return to a simpler time. The whole retro fashion movement incorporates the looks, fabrics, and styles of the 50’s through the 70’s. The market is not looking for another printed garment or embroidered hat. It is looking for apparel and accessory items that transcend the product by telling a story. There is and was no better voice than Roach Studios™.
