The Memorial Day weekend is here, and in addition to using it to honor those who fought and died in military service, we’ve decided to honor you guys with a NO LIMITS $10 Parkour Tee Sale! It’s just like it sounds – virtually all of our Parkour tees are $10! … and there are no limits and no minimums so you can get as many tees as you want!
The summer is getting closer and closer so we keep rolling out the summer gear! We’ve just launched 10 brand new Parkour® tees!! They are made from 4 unique designs and we’ve printed them on our Take Flight (Ultra Comfortable) Custom Tee. Designs were created with involvement from Take Flight pros Nikolay Stasolik, Danee Marmolejo, D’Ondrai Jones, Adam Dunlap, and the entire crew who gave their input on some of the finishing touches. That’s how you know our gear is made for Traceurs and by Traceurs.
The 2013 summer launch event is in full swing! On Thursday we unveiled 12 new tee designs. The trick is we are only going to make 5. The coolest part of it all is we are letting YOU decide what shirts we make.
Deciding what Take Flight shirt, pant, or hoodie to choose can be difficult. We have so many items that the choice can be overwhelming! Something that can make it even harder is deciding what size to get. So in order to make your purchasing experience and decision a little easier, we’ve decided to provide some really good sizing recommendations from three of the guys that wear Take Flight the most. Here it goes.
Name: Joey Adrian Height: 5’4″ (163m) Weight: 140 lbs (64kg) Shirt Size: Medium fits me perfectly! Not tight, and not too baggy. I love training in this shirt size. Pant Size: Again Medium is my size of choice. They fit very well around my waist. They are baggy enough to be comfortable and flowy without being too big to the point that they drag under my heels. Even if you have shorter legs a slight fold at the bottom works great to insure there is no drag. Hoodie Size: Same as the others, I rock the Medium here as well! If you like the baggy look I would go a size higher. I haven’t tried the large out yet since the medium has felt great so far! Unlike many other hoodies I can actually train in these. Most others I feel held back by the bulk of them and have to take it off before training lol.
Name: Adam Dunlap Height: 5′ 10″ (1.78m) Weight: 155 lbs (70kg) Shirt size: Medium is the best best fit for me, no doubt. Not baggy at all, and not too tight. I just make sure to hang dry them because if I dry it and the shirt shrink then it’s just slightly too small for me. But if that happens I wear it anyway. The Medium is the best either way. Pants Size: I prefer Large but Medium is great as well. The Large is a little baggier which I like, but quite honestly I barely notice the difference between the two. Both sizes give me ample room to move and the drawstring tightens well, so even with a larger waist on the Large pants I barely notice the difference between them. Hoodie Size: I like the Large hoodie! I originally thought I was a medium, but I tried one and it was too tight for me. I don’t like baggy hoodies, but I don’t want them to restrict my movement or my style. The large is perfect no doubt.
Name: Nathan Jones Height: 6′ 0″ (1.83m) Weight: 180 lbs (82kg) Shirt size: I prefer large because it’s not too tight nor too baggy. It provides comfort and the image of flow which is ideal for any Traceur. Pants Size: I like Large / Extra Large I prefer the baggy look! The pants work well for all seasons. They look good, feel good and are Parkour specific. What more could you ask for? Hoodie Size: Extra Large is the perfect size for me. Great for all seasons and looks good when training or in videos. It gives a very underground vibe which personally suits me best.

The discussion goes back and forth as the pros for both tee are formidable. Here is a common conversation we’ve been hearing at the office between our shipping manager and TF founder Adam Dunlap:
________ Rick: “The Original Parkour Tee is definitely the essential Parkour tee. It was the first Parkour tee and it has 17 color combos now. I mean everyone just loves it! What is better than that?” Adam: “Yeah, well that’s cool, but it’s not the essential Parkour tee. The Simply Parkour Tee is simpler and best embodies efficiency, so that makes it the essential tee.” Rick: “Huh? No way. Look at the tee! That line underneath Parkour make no sense. That’s not efficient at all. Essential? Hardly.” Adam: “Oh yeah?! Well then what’s with all the cracks in the Org PK Tee? How is that efficient and essential?! Plus the Org PK has no Stinger version. But with Stinger? Now we’re talking essential.”
The discussion goes on and on, round and round and it’s pretty much just a matter of opinion. So as stated we’ve decided to bring you in on it. Which tee do you think is the essential Parkour tee: the Original Parkour Tee or the Simply Parkour?

We always have at least 1 shirt prices at only $12. It’s our commitment to the Parkour community to make Parkour clothing affordable! Well, we’ve taken it to another level and right now we have 12.
We have 12 shirts that are priced at $12. They are all on closeout, meaning we are not planning to restock them anytime soon. So if you pick on up, not only do you get an amazing deal on a Parkour tee, you’ll also going to be one of the last ones to get your hands on the shirt! You can wear it or save it for your collection. Up to you. For $12, either way you can’t go wrong.
The waiting is finally over! The Christmas season gave us a made rush for Parkour gear, and left many of the community’s favorite shirts unavailable. But we have finally been able to reproduce all of our designs and get those out of stock items back in stock.
What does this mean for you? Well, if you’ve been waiting for a Parkour tee that has been out of stock – now is your time! This includes the highly coveted Original Parkour Tee – Donatello which we’ve reproduced as well.*
Hope this gives you some excitement for the weekend! Train hard and stay safe.
*The Original Parkour Tee – Donatello is a limited edition item. We never planned to reproduce the shirt, but due to high demand we have given in (whether that is a good or bad thing is your call.) With that said, in order to keep the tee limited edition we have only produced 40 more of the item.
Day three of our highlight of the 2010 Parkour Clothing line is here, and today we are focusing on the PK Splat Tee!
The PK Splat Tee has already distinguished itself as one of the favorite designs from the new launch both because of its design and its color combos. The tee is simple and yet bold, highlighting Parkour with its underground initials. The tee features a giant “PK” written across the chest in a textureized and urban roman font, and has an additional design component made up of subtle splotches that bring added effects and urban feel to the tee.
We don’t have much to say about this tee in terms of the conceptual design or the developmental process. The concept design for this tee and the inaugural color schemes actually came directly from Take Flight founder Adam Dunlap who had a very specific idea for the shirt from the beginning. Suffice to say, that given the origins of the tee’s design, the final result is a true and authentic Parkour tee that every Traceur can be proud to wear.
We are giving one of these PK Splat Tees away today on our Facebook page. If you’d like a chance to win all you’ll have to do is comment on the contest post we make! If you don’t win, you can also pick one up from our store for only $19.95.
