Help date this Fruit of the Loom tag in an old Beatles tee!

Post by treehouse » Fri Feb 02, 2018 12:36 pm

I know a lot of modern reproduction tees have been made with this album cover, but this shirt obviously has a lot of age to it. I can't seem to find the same Fruit of the Loom tag anywhere. Could it be from the 60s? It's quite faded but it doesn't look like it had the colourful fruit logo on it anywhere (unless that would have been printed on the tag on top which is completely washed out). Any ideas?

The double tag is just a duplicate, manufacturing error. Happened often with Screen Stars tags where two were sewn in. Def. not 60s. Maybe late 70s at earliest.
