Thread: Any idea where I can find STP fabric?

    Any idea where I can find STP fabric?

    My wife is amazing at sewing. I finally convinced her to make me an STP crew shirt like the famous pajama look from the 60s. The only problem is I can't find the fabric. Any idea where one can find such fabric? Thanks.

    I'm under the impression that Granatelli had that fabric specially made.

    Here's some original NOS EXTRA SMALL shirts from the 1960s being sold in lots of several shirts (lot of 10 shirts for $199.99 or a single shirt for $27.99). You could probably cut them as needed to make what you want. I doubt you're going to find any other original material.

    Thanks guys. You've pretty much confirmed what I've found unfortunately.

    Have you checked with companies that sell sublimated shirts? Maybe they can print some custom fabric for you.

    I don't know of any body that would do a one off, maybe they would print it and send it to you to sew? I'll keep my eyes/ears open. Also know that it will most likely have to be polyester.

    Every time this thread pops up I'm reminded of this hanging in my basement:

    I'm glad you put that in a frame.
    A onesie wouldn't look good on you.

    Especially given the size of it vs the size of me. Not sure who wore it originally but he was definitely a little man!

    You can try

    searching for STP found some vintage shirts. If you want to invest the time maybe look for someone creating their own shirts that could manufacture a short run of material to resemble the original. That's the best I can come up with

    IMO no legit cloth manufacturer will touch it w/o permission from Armor All/Studebaker. Their trademark was renewed in 2017 as they're now its 19th owner. Interestingly, only the B&W design was trademarked, not the colors. A silkscreen bootleg from an art student may be your only avenue.
