Good eye. How did you access those items?

Two more sought after vintage Harley t-shirts with a 22" chest? And keeping all the items private? come on.

Here's more photos from this seller's previous listings - both shirts have 22" chests. Incentive to be extra careful when purchasing these designs.

what the eff is that? I guess the new trend is to write a name on both the tag and the shirt...it helps legitimize the piece and makes a connection between a tag sewn in to a foreign shirt?

Not even close. He'd be better off cutting off the hem/sleeves and selling it as a reconstructed garment.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!

I remember coming across that shirt in one of my searches. Some excellent craftsmanship going on. the initials thing is like the total sign of it being authentic, going to get me some junk food shirts now and start initialing them, i mean making them original hahaha!

new faker?

http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-HARLEY-DAVI ... 0714006265

to his credit this guy is labeling certain ones REPROS in the listing. however, given he's obviously a vintage dealer - it's deceptive to put repros among true vintage items and not list it in the title of the auction - it's obviously paying off given people are paying $50-400 for them.

here's some shirts he has labeled as REPROS - so beware of these designs.
