Although UFC 118: Edgar vs. Penn II is still more than a month away, we turn our attention this week to the Top 3 RVCA tees released over the past few months in honor of “The Prodigy” BJ Penn. One of the best looking signature collections to have hit the MMA apparel scene, the RVCA BJ Penn series has given Penn fans a variety of options to choose from, including simple logo driven styles, as well as more graphic inspired designs such as the unique Gi tee featured below. As BJ prepares to take on UFC Lightweight Champ Frankie Edgar in a rubbermatch at UFC 118 in Boston on August 28, 2010, here’s a look at three of our favorite RVCA BJ Penn signature shirts.
Top 3 – RVCA BJ Penn Signature T-shirts:
As the shirt’s name suggests, this tee takes the cake with a clean design that blends simplicity and all the essentials any true Penn fan could possible wish for in a signature shirt. All white, with bronze logo hits on the chest, shoulders and sleeves, the RVCA #1 tee includes screen printed details of the Hawaiian islands, RVCA logos and “Ichi Ban” (which translates to “number one” in Japanese).

Going against the grain, compared to the simple styling commonly associated with the rest of the BJ Penn signature series, the Gi tee is one of the most unique looking designs around, with an all-over illustrated style that signifies Penn’s black belt status inside the Octagon. Drawing design inspiration from the RVCA BJ Penn Signature Fight Shorts, the Gi T-shirt features a black belt design that wraps around the waist and RVCA Gi patches on the front and back.

The list wouldn’t be complete without the RVCA signature style introduced back at UFC 112 when BJ squared off against Frankie Edgar in Abu Dhabi. Featuring a design done up in honor of the historic event, the UFC 112 signature style features a red, black and green stripe pattern inspired by the flag of the United Arab Emirates, with RVCA and BJ Penn logos on both sides, available in white, black and sand colored versions.
