Well here is another question from a reader about a t-shirt worn in an action movie. This time the question is about what t-shirt Chris Evans wore in the Marvel movie Captain America: The First Avenger.
The Reader’s Question
How can I get the same heavy white cotton t shirt that Captain America had when running through wharf NYC early in that movie?
Looked thick and of very high quality!
Thanks and are these around or some like it? V-Neck t-shirt preferred.

The scene TJ was referring to is the film’s end scene where Evans’ character Captain America woke up 70 years later after his transformation.
Here’s a clip from the scene:
My Investigation on Chris Evans’ T-Shirt
I sent out a couple inquiries and got some initial intel that appears to be accurate.
I created an account and emailed coolcap to see if I could get more information.
I got the following response about the original white tee.
They used a costume designer and the prototypes were Hanes and Mossimo, but they just went with a costume designer and yes its for sale.
I emailed coolcap back to see if I could get some more details. But might just drop the 100 bucks to snatch up this Captain America SSR shirt and get the details.
Still waiting to hear back from a couple of folks, so stay tuned. Hopefully, we’ll get some more specifics over the next couple of days!
If you are into 60s’ teen films and James Dean, you may want to know about the white t-shirt he was wearing in Rebel Without a Cause.
