The Chukker

$29.50 USD

Opened in 1956, The Chukker (at 2121 6th Street in Tuscaloosa) was basically two long hallways running parallel, like shotgun barrels. When you entered, on the left there was pool, pinball and other games — and of course a bar. On the right side, an audience area with tables and an elevated stage at the back. By the 1980s, The Chukker had already lived through many lives and owners. It was initially a workingman's bar. But then became a steak restaurant, a biker bar, gay bar, hippie bar. And some evenings, every possible mix of person was in there, and everyone got along amid an unofficial policy of mutual respect. There were seldom fights. Many national acts performed there, from reggae-rockers Sublime to African jazz-rock legend Sun Ra. To alt-rockers Morphine, surf-guitar pioneer Dick Dale, Drive-By Truckers, British guitar shredder Richard Thompson, The Replacements and MANY more. The building was demolished in 2003 to make way for a new courthouse (which is an ironic about-face for the property!), ending an almost 50-year run, decades of memories, amazing live music, priceless mural artwork and more.

Read This to Hekp You Pick the Right Tee!

In an effort to offer as many options as possible, we've got a few styles and fabric weight, materials, etc, for you to choose from. Here's a little more info on the various options you see in the pull-down menu on our product pages. Hope it helps! And as always, if you have a question, please reach out via the MESSAGE US box below):

Fabric details: 

  • Men’s Heavyweight T-shirt100% cotton (Heather colors are 90% cotton/10% polyester). Choose this if you want a heavier weight, feel. Heavier weight and "boxier" cut than the Lightweight tees. We use the desciptor "heavyweight" to denote the weight-feel of this option is thicker than our two "Lightweight" options (see below). Choose this option is you want an old-school, more 80s-style boxier cut, thicker collar, longer sleeves, wider body. Think Gildan or Comfort Colors style here. These are for guys (and gals, too!) who don't want today's lighter fabrics that are definitely all the rage. These feel a little "rougher" out of the package but will soften after a few washes.

  • Men's Lightweight T-shirt - Our most popular options are the Lightweight Heather (a blend of cotton and poly for a little more "stretch") and Lightweight Cotton (100% cotton) options. These run true to size, so you can feel comfortable ordering your normal size. These are brands like Canvas and Next Level. Similar to the more high-end "fashion" tees you see at Banana Republic. High-quality stitching and weaving create a light-feeling fit while wearing. 100% ring-spun cotton (Heather colors are 35% cotton/65% polyester). The heather blends have a slight stretch to them and are very lightweight, super soft, and will not shrink.

  • Ladies Racerback Tank - These are a featherweight, but very sturdy "triblend" fabric blending 50% polyester, 25% combed ring-spun cotton, and 25% rayon. Extremely lightweight and just the right amount of stretch.

  • Ladies Regular-fit T-shirt - Tapered-cut for women. 100% combed ring-spun cotton (Heather colors are 35% cotton/65% polyester). Cap sleeves, tapered through the torso, thinner, slight scoopneck collar. A true ladies-cut! They run a tad small, so order up if you prefer a little more room but still want a real ladies-cut shirt.

  • Thermal Hoodie50% cotton/ 50% polyester. Warm, fleece-lined. Perfect weight and size. Run true to size. Great for smashing it on Game Days...or any day it's a bit cool out!

  • Men's Long Sleeve T-shirt - 100% cotton, slightly-fitted, but not overly so. Pretty true to size. Very soft, ringspun cotton.
