I've collected Vintage clothes for about 7 years now without ever once even looking up anything up online, it's just what i did, i bought cool shirts and began to realize the difference between old shirts and repo, which i've always avoided. It wasn't until i stumbled into a brand new small vintage store in a small Virginia town on I95 on their opening weekend called Horseshoes and Hand grenades that i became hooked. I began buying everything vintage i could find in any size. I've aquired a few rare shirt, and plenty of common shirts. I've just posted my rarest shirt on e-bay and in the auction alert forum.
I'm really hoping to become an active part of this community considering 99% of my free time is dedicated to hunting for this stuff!!
