Papa Nui collaborates with the best in the business and this union brings to you the first name in tactical radios and comms equipment, Five Four Communications.

James Foley and I have many shared passions that we’ve discussed over the years and these conversations have resulted in our latest product offering, The Nam Skies Tee.

Based on the original 1965 United Airlines marketing slogan, “Fly the Friendly Skies”, enterprising tee shirt printers lampooned the advertising campaign to suit the Vietnam War generation and turned the copyrighting onto its head with an 

ironic twist on the original. An image of a fully armed and loaded McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom fighter aircraft replaced the commuter Boeing 737 and the slogan became “Fly the Friendly Skies of Vietnam”.

Originals are very hard to come by so with the assistance of UK based graphic Artist, Adrian McKay, James and I engaged him to research what original images we could find. What Adrian came up with is a testimony to the man’s talent. The best in military style graphics, Adrian has put together a killer interpretation of the real war time shirt, that’s printed on American 100% cotton blanks in California in an original colour way, white on navy, with the large graphic encompassing the back of the tee and a smaller version gracing the left chest.
