Frankie Goes to Hollywood camouflage bootleg

Post by lord ched » Sat Nov 14, 2009 9:50 pm

A nice surprise from Value Village: a surprisingly creative Frankie Goes to Hollywood boot printed on a camouflage shirt. Wouldn't be much without that touch (and in true bootleg fashion, the gimmick is only marginally connected to what's actually printed on the shirt) but it's unusual and a nice substitute for the official shirt I'm too poor to afford. Is this just an amusing anomaly, or is it worth some scratch?

That's the record that made them famous..and typically FGTH tees do really well, but the camo might not fly. People like to wear this stuff and camo isn't all that popular. What brand is on the tag? is it actually old?

It's an Electric-T- made in Canada, 50/50. NOS, too. Here's a picture:

Nice, I have seen that brand before, definitely 80s. Could go well in your store at a fixed price with offers activated. Lots of crazy FGTH fans out there.
