Something that I have loved to do since I was a kid was travel. I didn’t get to fly on my first plane until I was around 8. Of course, I can remember flying from Chicago to California for my very first flight. I already loved traveling before that; however, experiencing the flight made my love that much stronger. Some people are scared to death of flying but for me, I LOVE IT! I can remember going into the cockpit as a child and getting a pair of the pilot wings. Also, flying over Salt Lake was a sight! 08 Left has art to fit every travel lovers needs and wants!
My brother-in-law is an aviation engineer and used to fly some as well. I was telling my sister about 08 Left and she has received a few shirts for him for Christmas that have special meanings. 08 Left has shirts, hoodies, mugs, pillows, coasters and wall hangings that have everything from airport codes, diagrams, famous towers and even military related art.
Some of My Favorite 08 Left Designs
The 08 Left designs are available in a variety of different product forms. You can choose the same design for a t-shirt as you can a pillow when it comes to most of the designs.
One of my favorites is the Custom Name. It allows you to choose a name in which they will make an acrostic for using NATO’s phonetic alphabet. The photo shows one I had made with my last name, SMITH.
With the different states largest airports, a map of the United States is made of their airport codes. Very creative design!
With using the NATO phonetic alphabet, a box shape is made up of a list of the alphabet in order. The beginning letter of each is highlighted making it easy to see each individual word.
Of course, being born and raised in Chicago, I spent a lot of time at ORD. Therefore, this was one of my absolute favorites. Adding letters before and after ORD making the shirt say unORDinary. Perfect shirt for me!
If traveling is among your list of hobbies, make sure you check out 08 Left. I am SURE you will find something special that brings back some fond memories!
