    The Turk was one of the greatest hoaxes of all time. Built in 1770, the Chess Playing Automaton, nicknamed The Turk, was said to be a machine that could best any man at chess. While in fact, The Turk was an elaborate mechanical illusion that swindled people on both sides of the Atlantic for nearly 100 years before being destroyed in a warehouse fire in 1854. The Turk's victims included both Napoleon Bonaparte and Benjamin Franklin. Edgar Allen Poe even tried to debunk the machine, but was wrong with several of his assertions.

    Endgame Clothing believes that intellectual passions, like chess, are at the very core of being human. Passion of the body is nothing without passion of the mind. It's our body that engages in the act, but it is our mind that provides us with the lasting joy of it.

    Endgame strives to create the finest chess apparel on the planet. The thought, care and craftsmanship that go into each design are second to none.

    All shirts are printed on 100% ringspun, preshrunk cotton for an amazingly comfortable playing experience. All shirts have a classic athletic look. If a looser fit is preferred, consider ordering a size larger.

    The Turk shirt: Black shirt with large front print design, using discharge inks for a super soft feel and vintage look.

    Printed on 100% ringspun, preshrunk cotton Amazingly comfortable playing experience. Classic athletic look.
