VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT "He Conquers Who Conquers Himself" Black Pocket T-Shirt


Our newest pocket tee features the Maritime Supply Co logo on the front pocket and a hand drawn illustration of a nautical scene on the back of the tee.

VINCIT QUI SE VINCIT, the Latin phrase that circles the illustration, translates to “He conquers who conquers himself.” The nautical scene depicts a sailor fending off a giant octopus with a harpoon as the octopus attacks the ship. In this example, the sailor has the strength and determination to defeat the octopus only because he has already proven his own worth and ability to himself by surviving a life on the sea this long.

A different iteration of the Latin phrase is “bis vincit qui se vincit,” which translates to “he (she) who prevails over himself (herself) is twice victorious.” This could be taken to mean that if you have successfully trained yourself to reject a fearful nature and instead go forward with goodwill and courage, then that is one major battle already won and you are much more likely to succeed in the next external conflict you face.

Shirt is unisex relaxed fit and made of 100% cotton. If you have questions about sizing, please check out the information on the FAQ page.
