Soldiers returning from battle following World War I often suffered shell shock. The nation was struggling from fatigue. It was long and costly war and in the years that followed there was a desperate attempt to settle back into some semblance of normalcy. In the heart of Harlem, New York, at the corner of 116th Street and 8th Avenue Billy Grupp opened Grupp’s Gymnasium. It would become known as the preeminent gym in New York City during this time period and offered everything the young, driven boxer could want. Grupp’s Gymnasium provided an open layout and an abundance of light. Some of the world’s best fighters called this place home and even nicknamed it Grupp’s College.
Slinging on this comfortable tee with Grupp’s logo can immediately conjure forth the attitude so many fighters had when training at this gym. Enjoy style and comfort while sporting a legendary boxing gym’s logo.
