I am about to list this really cool paper thin San Francisco Tee. I cannot figure out the date though. The tag is the unbranded 50/50 (reverse side just states the RN# and Made in U.S.A.;I think it is possibly 70s or earlier. Anybody have a guess? The birds on the shirt make it look like a vintage knockoff from that one mall brand.
and in my opinion, 50/50 tees are from 80's.
RN 17251 (that 5 could be a 3, but looks like a 5).
Is there a RN directory somewhere?
and it turned out that number(17251) indicates HANES!!!!!!! and with 17231 i got Little coleman co. i bet former one is correct. congrats man!! but that just tells current company. i mean if the brand that produced your tee 30 or 40 years ago are today possessed by the other company, that number doesnt give a clue to reveal original companies.
say....the other day, i searched with champion's RN number and they say it is HANES.
i dont know the details but Champion is a part of Hanes company now isnt it?
and i got to know this way, searching RN number at one vintage blog. and ive been thinking that i should share with you here.
poor english. sorry about that.
