Wintage Wessels

I had some trouble thinking up a good name for this one. I don’t know why, but I did. Probably obvious when you compare the title of the sale to the title of this write-up. So what I’m gonna do now is brainstorm some alternatives, maybe for the future.

Here we go: we have ships. Let’s call them classic ships. Classic sci-fi ships. They’re done-up in a vintage car garage poster sort of style. You get Vintage Vessels.

With how Chekov pronounces “V,” you get Wintage Wessels. We gotta go deeper.

The Serenity is a small transport ship crewed by a group of lovable scoundrels that act as smugglers and rebels. If this were the Millennium Falcon and Serenity, we could go with a smuggling theme or something. Maybe play on how both the ships are considered hunks of junk, except for by their crews.

Instead, we’ve got the goody-two-shoes Enterprise as her running mate. Top-of-the-line, on a mission of exploration and peace and the greater good of all beings.

Hang on though. Both of the crews have a tendency to meddle when ideally they would try not to. It’s part of what Star Fleet is supposed to do, and the Firefly group are trying to keep a low profile. So maybe something like “Stella Incognita!” Fancy. Plus it hits on that whole final frontier thing, because terra incognita! And Firefly is like a Western. And that whole opening monologue in Star Trek.

Alright we’ll go with that. Except we didn’t. Hey, look, some shirts!

Vintage Vessels by RetroDivision

Better refresh your times table knowledge, because we’ve got some RetroDivision today! Ugh, no, that barely makes sense. Better check your horoscope, because Division’s in Retro… grade… No, no, there’s gotta be a better one. One shirt if by land, two shirts if by sea, the RetroDivision is marching onto Mediocritee…

You know what, just, if you like what you see or just plain enjoy pop culture icons reimagined in retro branding styles, go check out RetroDivision on Twitter or Instagram.
