Vintage Clothing of the Future

Post by CRAZYBUBBA » Thu Jan 07, 2010 8:00 pm

What modern day clothing do you think will be "vintage" in the future? So much clothing today seems to be vintage influenced, and most manufacturing as already moved overseas, it seems like the scope of clothing that could be collectible or high quality is diminishing more quickly than ever.

Excellent question bubba. Most of the popular designer clothing lines are built on stuff borrowed from the past, especially the "premium" t-shirt brands.(Ed Hardy, Barking Irons, Salvage, Drifter, affliction etc.) Do you think people in the future will pay a lot of money to wear tacky junk like this

I loled. I think what becomes collectible is partly related to current fashion trends and partly due to the exclusivity of the item when it was made/ the availability of it today.

It's possible, you never know. Hold on to those Gildans too :lol:

I often ask this question to vintage sellers and collectors. In my personal opinion, anything 1990 and earlier will ALWAYS be considered vintage. Anything after can't. It just isn't right. Funny you posted the Ed Hardy shirts. I hate those tees so much. They make me want to puke. I want to come out with a line of tees called Ed Hardly. Anyone want to join me? Mike

Classic....the best is the Facebook group "Thanks to Ed Hardy I can Spot Douche Bags"

Ed Hardly could work....ha you need a play of the first word too like Fed Hardly or Cred Hardley...

I got threatened with a law suit by the dinks who have the rights to Bill and Ted's properties because of this shirt. I agreed to pull them all and then he insisted I give proof that I destroyed them. Give me a break pal. I had no choice but to pull them knowing that if he emailed eBay directly they would have done it in an instant.

BOGUS.

Copyright laws are so 2003! Whats funny is those brands like Barking Irons that made a fortune selling $80 t-shirts which are printed with 100+ year old copyright-free art. All they had to do was scan some old books at the library!

Nice shirt Jimmy, did you have them printed up yourself?
