Your Hunt For Red October Has Ended With This ‘Crazy Ivan’ T-Shirt!


We are exceptionally excited to unleash our next and arguably most exciting installment in our series of very limited run T-Shirts that we have designed in partnership with the mad transportation apparel scientists over at This time around we dove deep to come up with a design that would speak to the inner Cold Warrior in all of you. Paying homage to maybe the most quoted military thriller in our highly active comments section, a film beloved by so many, The Hunt For Red October, 'Crazy Ivan' reminds us of the perils of undersea cat-and-mouse games and one of the most memorable scenes in the film.

Although Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, and James Earl Jones took center stage in the undersea thriller, the true stars of the movie were the fictional caterpillar drive-equipped Typhoon class nuclear ballistic submarine

Red October and the Los Angeles class nuclear fast attack submarine Dallas. Both of which take their rightful place at the core of our design.


Just as Jonesy called out "Conn, sonar. Crazy Ivan!"—an abrupt turning maneuver used by a submarine captain to 'clear their baffles' so that an enemy sub hiding immediately to the rear in the sonar's blind spot can be detected—you too can tell the world that you too react fast to even your most crafty and guileful opponents.
