Do It With Flair (Revisited)

In 1985, Jim Crockett Promotions released their first line of commercial merchandise that was based on their wrestlers. They previously had released some event-related t-shirts, but none directly related to the wrestlers themselves. These were sold at the live events as well as through mail order.

Ric Flair's first shirt was a classic. The phrase "I do It With Flair" was boldly emblazoned in sparkling gold on the front of a royal blue t-shirt. This particular shirt was only available for a short period of time in late 1985 and early 1986.

Thirty years later, in 2015, Ric's daughter Ashley, working under the name Charlotte Flair in the WWE, featured a very cool shirt that was a variation on that same theme.

Charlotte's shirt had a two-sided message. On the front it said  "If you're gonna do it..." and then the back says "Do it with Flair."

What an awesome tribute to her Dad and a long forgotten piece of memorabilia from the Crockett days.

We love it!
