California is a state in the United States. In 1850, California joined the Union as the 31st state after thousands of years of indigenous occupation. California is now the most populous state with the biggest economy. It's got nice weather, they make movies there... there's really a lot going for it. Maybe you live there and want to show your pride, maybe you're just a big fan and dream of visiting. Either way, this tee is just right. This vintage 70s California state shirt, with a touch of sun fade, features an illustration of a beautiful, coastal sunset.
