El Porto Fire t-shirt
Both our traditional "classic fit" and new Next Level "premium fitted" shirt styles run true to size. (If you traditionally wear a large, a large in these should fit you. If you like your shirt a little roomy and are ordering a fitted style, you may want one size larger.)
Our shirts are never cheaper DTG printing, these are genuine silkscreen - printed with pride, folded by hand, and shipped with care by humans in Southern Calfornia.
Classic Fit T-shirts:
Our Classic Fit Shirts are made by Gildan and 100% lightweight cotton with a seamless collar crew neckline and full double-needle stitching. A softer, thin feel but a traditional sizing and cut. (Heathers and some colors are polyester/cotton blends.)
- 100% Cotton Preshrunk Jersey knit
- Seamless double needle 7/8" collar
- Taped neck and shoulders
- Double needle sleeve and bottom hems
- Quarter-turned to eliminate center crease
While shirts are labeled "preshrunk" by the manufacturer, like most cotton shirts, these will shrink upon washing. For best results, wash in cold water inside-out and hang dry. That said, these classic fit shirts are traditional shirts and traditional silkscreening, so they should stand up to the normal wear and care of similar shirts you have experience with.
Premium Fitted T-shirts:
Our Premium Fitted Shirts are made by Next Level and are 60% combed ring-spun cotton, 40% polyester in most colors. These are made with top of the line fabric that stands up to consistent wear without sacrificing fit or feel with a set-in collar and side seams. While these shirts are fitted, they do run true to size. (Some solid colors may be 100% combed ring-spun cotton.)
- 60% combed ringspun cotton/40% polyester jersey
- 4.3 oz
- 1x1 baby rib-knit set-in collar
- Slightly heathered (unless 100% cotton solid)
- fabric laundered for reduced shrinkage
- 32 singles for extreme softness
- tear-away label
While shirts are labeled "preshrunk" by the manufacturer, like most cotton shirts, these will shrink on their first washing. For best results, wash in cold water inside-out and hang dry. That said, these premium fitted shirts and traditional silkscreening are known for being durable along with incredibly soft and lightweight, so they should stand up to the normal wear and care of similar shirts you have experience with.

When I print a new batch of shirts, I often try to do a custom preorder period. This way, you can order the design printed on another color shirt or a different style of shirt; the ink color and design can not change. Be sure to be on our email list or watch our social media accounts for news of when we are offering this - sometimes the order window is only for 2 or 3 days. Here are the color options to choose from when ordering a custom preorder:
Even when El Porto was its own town, it never had a fire station. But we always thought how cool their shirts could be if they did, so we made one! Our take on what an EPFD shirt could be features the wavestacks design in the center flanked by surfboards to form the departments Maltese Cross, featured in full size on the back of the shirt, and as a small pocket area print on the front.
New stock of this design is now being printed in white on our old school Navy Classic Fit tees. . Custom preorders closed 9/12, but you can still preorder from the regular stock currently being printed. Preorder shirts are expected to be ready to ship on October 10.
Our classic fit shirts are a more relaxed, traditional cut and feature a seamless collar crew neckline and full double-needle stitching with the classic cut and sizing. Heather options are softer blends, while solids are 100% cotton.
