One expert has had this to say

"What's that strange label in the Fifth Column / Rotten tee ? And is it printed both sides ? Fifth Column fakes tees are now all over Bangkok. Thais have been buying Seds and Boy from me, and now fakes are turning up being made in Malaysia."

This is a shirt from my brother's collection who passed away a little over two years ago. He had this shirt in storage for 30+ years along with a lot of other items. I guess there is no way to prove to you this is authentic unless I show you all the monthly receipts from the storage unit rental he paid over the years. I believe I have the provenance to back it up. I'm confident it is authentic unless they were making these particular shirts 30 years ago in Malaysia. The tag looks authentic as well. Good to know, though. I will attempt to have it authenticated somehow.
