Re: BVD 70s?

Sorta related question.
In what year were garment manufactures required to list the fabric content in percentages? I know at some point it switched from "all cotton" to "100% cotton" etc...

Re: Hello... what vintage shirts do you actually wear?

Random white label Screen Stars tees. But nothing too pricey. I don't want to flip out when I spill BBQ sauce all over it.

BBQ stains do however = WASTED!! Worn to perfection = double the value

Re: Raiders Blue Bar

I priced it high. I'd rather let this one sit around the store and look pretty. I'm a sucker for Raiders gear. I've been buying bulk from a guy I met on a vintage trip a few hours from Tennessee. Working out very nicely. Scored over 300 random Screen Stars shirts in 2 trips. Yeah, I was totally thin...

Re: Most you've ever spent on a shirt?

I sent pictures when he authenticated the piece. I'd definitely feel comfortable with my purchase if the pics were published at some point. My heart goes pitter pat when I daydream of this unrealistic fantasy. (usually, I'm skipping through an airbrushed meadow with Mouse chasing butterflies wearing...

Re: Most you've ever spent on a shirt?

That Stanley Mouse sweatshirt that made a cameo on the forum a while back. Had the Mouse studios authenticate it. Had to own it after that. I probably paid too much for it, but I loved the content and knew I wouldn't get a second chance at it.

Re: Is there a market for non-pop culture-related vintage tees?

Depends on how much you feel your time is worth. Lots of random shirts will sell in the $10-$15 range. If buying them to sell, you will probably need to let them sit for a while and sell to the right buyer. Localized shirts will often sell to people in that area. Hometown appeal. Lots of buyers like...
