Helltown Merman Tee Shirt


The quintessential Provincetown tee shirt - designed and made locally, exclusive to Arcadia.

A furry, muscled merman rises from the bay, covered in tattoos of Provincetown lore.

Helltown refers to an old fisherman's settlement out at Herring Cove beach aka Boy Beach and Hatches Harbor (where the breakwater is now), which was beyond the last Puritan parish church district. It was therefore the scene of much carousing, drinking, partying and carrying on when the fishermen were not hard at work, and condemned as a helltown by the righteous of Truro parish.

Not much has changed, thankfully!

NOTE: American Apparel (Cranberry, Heather Black and Indigo) shirts are discontinued - so when they are sold out, those colors are gone for good.

American Apparel shirt is tri-blend (50% cotton, 25% polyester, 25% rayon) for superb softness from the first instant and long lasting wear without any shrinkage.
