Silver Star Clothing Worn Like Battle Standard On UFC Champ
Georges St. Pierre Victorious Over BJ Penn In UFC 94

Silver Star Clothing Company's signature tees are making waves in the fight world. Georges St. Pierre is one of five UFC superstars to have a Silver Star signature tee made exclusively for him and his hardcore fans.

Silver Star's George St. Pierre Fight shirt is a high quality graphic tee done in an Old English style, and has screaming griffins framing the GSP logo on a decorative background of scrollwork. The shirt is an all over front print with silver foil accents on both sides of the 100% cotton garment. The shirt comes in both men's and women's sizes and is available in white or grey.
