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.

A friend of mine pointed me to a page on yourprops.com where seller “coolcap” is selling an original piece of Chris Evans’ Captain America t-shirt.

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.

Price: $100

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.

  1. Any update on finding how to get the shirt.
    If I were tshirt factory owner I would make shirts close to that white shirt and take advantage of the demand

    • heya calvin, good to hear from you buddy.

      actually, the article has the latest information on what t-shirt chris evans was wearing — looks like it was just a plain-old hanes or mossimo t-shirt that was customized by a costume designer.

      i don’t think there’s much demand for this t-shirt and i doubt anyone could rightfully copy the graphics on that shirt exactly and commercially sell it, due to copyright infringement.

  2. See, the continuous theme; and at times for fashionable “strenuous” of these shirts translates to “The Avengers” movie. Where we see this young buck wearing a similar vintage shirt.


    I believe personally that it is vintage. For the main reason being that there is nothing out there of similar value or structure.

    If anyone has any idea’s on what this shirt/shirts may be. I would be very interested to hear. I’m going to look into the contume designer for futher inspection. If I could get ahold of them, I’m sure they would be of some help.

    Keep looking folks and keep posting! Get website!

    • hey devon! thanks for your contribution!

      like the seller above said, the prototypes were hanes and mossimo. wondering if the tee chris is wearing in the image you linked to is one of those.

      let me know if you find anything out about the captain america t-shirt. would love to have the deets.

  3. Do you really believe that to be the real movie prop?
    I mean, when you look at those two pictures side by side, the SSR logo just doesn’t seem the right size.
    Just what I think.
