Jack Burton Fu Manchu Tank Jack Burton Fu Manchu Shirt Big Trouble In Little China Fu Manchu Graphic
"It's all in the reflexes." So says Jack Burton in John Carpenter's awesome martial arts fantasy flick Big Trouble in Little China. And who knows, maybe it's in the shirt too. Kurt Russell as Jack Burton wears this danged shirt through most of the movie, and now we've recreated the tank top (and shirt) for your personal wearing pleasure.

What's up with the sinister Fu Manchu design? The flowing robe? The Taoist symbols? The dragons? We dunno, but it's cooler than hell. And we've duplicated it down to the smallest detail of line, shape, and color on a solid white t-shirt or tank top if you to be want completely authentic.

The Fu Manchu tank top and t-shirt are printed on white 100% ring-spun cotton blanks. Please note that the tank top is only available in sizes S-XL.

The Check Is In The Mail

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: 'Have ya paid your dues, Jack?' 'Yessir, the check is in the mail.'

"Great, a Six Demon Bag."

I saw Big Trouble in Little China when I was a little kid. It was instantly my favorite movie for years. I must of watched it over a hundred times on cable. My best friend and I thought the Lightening Storm was the coolest mother around. It wasn't until I was a little older that I realized that Jack Burton has to be one of the coolest character's that would ever grace the silver screen. Hot damn that man is cool!!! I've used his name as an alias on more times than I'd care to name as recently as last month. As much as I'd like to be a free-wheelin', truck-drivin', Lo Pan-ass-kickin' adventurer, I know I never will be. Although I'll never get to drive the Pork Chop Express at least now I can rock Burton's sweet-ass t-shirt. Designed with meticulous care and style, it's the closest I'll ever come to feeling like the Man himself! My only regret is that I ordered the Jack Burton shirt and not the tank-top. So incredibly awesome that you offer them both though I must say!!!

The tank top is spot on. Looks exactly as the picture shows. Simply a wonderful replica of the original from the film. Highly recommended for anyone looking for Jack Burton's tank top. I'm planning to purchase another because they are so well executed.

Shirt arrived with holes in the back, had to exchange. Customer service was good and replacement (with no holes) arrived a week or so after I shipped my return item. Love the shirt, I'm 6'1 and the large fit perfect. 4 stars because I to pay for shipping twice (return shipping).

Shirt came in a week after ordering! I was surprised at how good the quality was too (Usually companies will print of some pretty awful copies of shirts like these). The tanktop was a little big but if you're wearing it Jack Burton style with it tucked in there's no problem!

Excellent Shirt!

But he should have been, to get this awesome tank top. I received this as a gift. I'm not usually a guy who wears tank tops. But, if it's good enough for Jack Burton, it's good enough for me. The shirt is a really nice quality - you expect reproductions to be cheap and thin and look good enough to make someone say "Wow! No way!" when they get a gift, and don't expect them to hold up more than a few times through the wash. It's the IDEA of the shirt, more than the execution. But this, my friends, is a really, really good shirt. I've worn this shirt dozens of times, and passers by, instead of saying 'Hey pal! Put on a real shirt!' point and smile and say,'Indeeeeeed!'. I'm giving one as a gift, this year. You should, too.

Watched It Monday, Wore It Friday

I bought this shirt for my boyfriend, along with the Stephen King Rules shirt from Monster Squad for my boyfriend & he loves it! I can't get over how dead on the graphic is. We watched Big Trouble In Little China on Monday night, I ordered the shirt for him on Tuesday morning & by Thursday night he got it. Super fast shipping! Thank you so much!

Thanks So Much!

I just received the Fu Manchu Shirt I ordered from you and it's AWESOME!!! It arrived super fast and in excellent condition too, by the way. Thank you so very much for sending me a Tank Top instead of a T-Shirt, it's exactly what I wanted and I appreciate you changing it for me so much! Thanks for everything and I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

The tanktop is comfy and sized perfectly. It came promptly within the week I ordered it and all that.

And the details are perfect to the letter. I especially like the halftone pattern on the sun. It feels like the genuine article from the classic Carpenter film.

I pretty much feel like jack burton when wearing it.

I usually wear medium shirts and this fit pretty true. My "Big trouble in little china" fan friends were pretty jealous when they saw I had this. Only washed once and colors are still bright.

I grew up watching this god damned film. Now I make films utilizing VFX.

This is not a print like any other. It's the size of the original. Fit's my frame like a boss. Ordering 2 more for my crew.

We first see the Fu Manchu tank top as Burton strips away his Baja sweater while escaping through a tunnel, right after his first encounter with the three storms. We could take a symbolic approach at trying to evaluate the significance of the Fu Manchu Tank Top. Burton enters the tunnel in one form, and exits as another. Why does he take off his jacket? There is no precedent for it in the movie. Does the Fu Manchu shirt embody some existential power to aid Burton in his battle with the three storms? And how does he get his jacket back at the end of the film? While intriguing, these are questions for another day.

Even though the Fu Manchu tank top is an integral part of the Jack Burton persona, we wonder why he’s even wearing it. Burton claims to be semi ignorant of Chinese culture (“What the hell does that mean? huh? China is here, I don't even know what the hell that means”) and yet he’s wearing the face of the archetypical criminal genius, Fu Manchu. Fu Manchu prefers more archaic methods of murder and criminal activity. In fact, Lo Pan is based on the mastermind Fu Manchu himself.

At the end of the day, we’re just thankful for the stylistic impact Big Trouble in Little China has had and we’re stoked to provide our customers with this incredible design.
