worn[BUT NOT]forgotten captures a lifetime of sports passion in an original piece of art.

It’s simple and brilliant. Vintage team t-shirts, folded, arranged on top of one another and then photographed close-up creating a classic design. It's as if the old t-shirts featuring your favorite teams on them were stacked perfectly and resting comfortably on your closet shelf. Instead, they're framed on your wall.

Sketches small rev 1Each image truly is a piece of art. It starts with an idea and a sketch - an overall vision of color and design. It’s finding the right vintage shirt, which can take months, even years. It’s meticulously placing the t-shirts on top of each other, pulling, stretching and shrinking them until they completely match. Then once they're lined up, the photo is taken and the art is created.

"It starts with an idea and a sketch"



worn[BUT NOT]forgotten speaks not only to die-hard fans that have stuck with their team through thick and through thin, but also to new and young fans alike. Each piece of art has its own personality. You’ll find them in offices, man-caves and little boy’s rooms. Oh, Moms love them too.

Just one look at the fine-detail, the close-up fabric and the brilliant colors that represent your sports journey and you’re transported in time.

Above all, worn[BUT NOT]forgotten is art that transforms. Remember those old t-shirts? They had a smell to them. They were paper-thin. The ink was all crackled and they might have become a bit snug over the years. But they were the shirts you just couldn’t part with because they meant so much to you. Those are the ones that are brought back to life as pieces of vintage sports art that resonate with passionate fans.

It’s old-school, artfully done. And there’s nothing on the planet like it.

The Story

There's a wonderful story behind worn[BUT NOT]forgotten. It happened by accident, as many of the most amazing ideas do. In fact, it happened one night when Steve Makransky was folding his laundry.

Steve- Cuse"I guess that week I had worn all my Philadelphia team t-shirts. You know, the old ratty ones that have a hole or a stain. We all have t-shirts like that. We had those when we were kids and maybe our Moms threw them away. Our favorite shirts,” Steve says.

As he stacked his clean, Philly t-shirts on top of each other and was about to put them away, he then saw it. His life-long teams, folded in a way where there was just enough of each emblem showing. He snapped a photo.

And worn[BUT NOT]forgotten was born.

Steve began finding, buying and collecting old, vintage t-shirts of teams from other major cities, folding them and shooting them, creating original pieces of sports art. A former advertising professional in New York, Steve followed family to Las Vegas in 2003 and was working in sales. After hanging some pieces of his sports art in his cubicle, colleagues began buying them. Soon, Steve and his wife, Jodi, began showcasing his vintage sports art at events in Las Vegas and beyond.

"It’s a great feeling knowing I’ve created an image that people will like,” says Steve who puts a lot of passion into each piece. "If it’s not perfect, I start over.”

An artist, photographer, die-hard Philly fan and Syracuse grad, Steve has taken sports & art and created something different, something truly unique for the fan that has everything.

As Steve says, “It’s art that you can wear on your wall.”
