What started out as looking for a way to cheer up some fellow lineman who were down in the dumps has grown into the phenomenon that is The East Coast Lineman.  You love his videos and now you can show your support by getting the brand new East Coast Lineman long-sleeve Flame Resistant T-Shirt.

About The East Coast Lineman

The East Coast Lineman idea started with a guy wanting to make his co-workers smile during some tough circumstances.  “I was on a small crew and the guys and they were all pretty miserable.   We were working long hours and being away from our families had everyone in a bad mood.  I started making the videos just to lighten things up for a little bit and over time it just took off.”

The East Coast Lineman’s goal is to bring a little humor to what is a very serious and dangerous job.  “When I make a video, the goal is that if someone watches and gets a laugh from it, they pass it along and keep the laughter spreading.  Linemen do serious work, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun as well.”

We couldn’t agree more!

The lightweight jersey t-shirt looks and feels like a normal t-shirt until you get to the label and see the codes and certification this holds! This long sleeve t-shirt is UL certified for NFPA 2112 compliance for protection against flash fire (oil and gas industries). It is compliant to OSHA 1910.269 and NFPA 70E compliant for protection against electrical arc (utility, electrical, manufacturing). Each USA Made shirt has an individual serial number and comes with a one-year free repair warranty.

The material is specifically designed to be used with a unique water based ink system which does not affect the flame resistant properties yet creates vibrant graphics and designs. Now the coolest shirt you own can be worn on the job.

Stop & Wash: The graphic t-shirts are treated with a nontoxic water based treatment, around and under, the graphic. This acts as a primer so the color is vibrant and does not soak into the fibers of the shirt during printing. A new t-shirt can feel slightly “starchy” due to this treatment; we suggest washing your flame resistant graphical t-shirt in cold water prior to wearing.

Shrinkage After Laundry: Shrinkage is controlled with this FR T-Shirt. You can expect your shirt to shrink about 4% total after the first one or two washes. For an average size XL this means about 7/8” in the width and about ¾” in the length.

Laundry & Care: To preserve the graphic we suggest you wash cold or warm temperature using liquid or powder detergent.
