DetailsShare a little bit of history with the world. This shirt displays the history and origin of the Barber Pole and why it has red and white stripes. It also features our now famous Wow, I Never Knew That! logo. Slim fit, runs a bit small.
"Did you know BARBER POLES are red and white because barbers used to perform surgery and bloodlettings.
After the operation, the washed bloody bandages would dry outside their shops and twirl in the wind. Today, the bloody bandages have been replaced with a pole painted with red and white stripes."
