Vintage logo T-shirts celebrate iconic North Shore places and pastimes

We rummaged the North Shore News archives to bring you these iconic logo tees, with all proceeds to support local journalism.

A T-shirt from the North Shore News Vintage collection sports the iconic logo of the Seven Seas Restaurant, which operated out of the old No. 5 ferry, moored at the foot of Lonsdale for 40 years. It was a popular destination for North Shore residents and visitors alike.

If you rocked out at Deep Cove Daze in the '90s, ate surf and turf at the Seven Seas in the '80s or played racquets at the Lions Gate Tennis Club in the '70s, now you can own the T-shirt to prove it.

Earlier this week, North Shore News launched its e-store of vintage tees with a distinctly local vibe.

We rummaged through our newspaper archives for all things North Shore, and found some real gems. It’s our way of honouring the past as well as the businesses that shaped our amazing North Shore community.

Our T-shirts are printed in and shipped from Vancouver. We’ve partnered with custom clothing company, Coastal Reign, whose twentysomething co-founders, Eddison Ng and Boaz Chan, have printed more than 200,000 shirts for their Canadian customers.

All T-shirts are 100% cotton, preshrunk jersey knit, and available in a variety of colours and sizes, priced at $35 plus tax. Shipping is free.

And here’s the kicker: all proceeds go to support local journalism at the North Shore News.

For now, we’re sharing just a dozen golden oldies. If you don't see an old favourite, keep checking back. New designs will be released weekly. You can find them all at the e-store on our North Shore News website.

Have an idea for a design? We’d love to hear about it. Email
