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.-TJ (Air Force)
Steve Rogers: Wearing White T-shirt (After Transformation Scene)
Here’s a clip from the scene:
Here’s another scene where Evans’ character Steve Rogers (Captain America) woke up 70 years later after his transformation, wearing a similar white t-shirt, but one with the SSR emblem.
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!
My guess is that the two t-shirts are the same — one without the SSR emblem/logo, and one with.
Separately, but somewhat related — 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.
