Russell Brands tag Ornamentation

The WPL# checks out to Russell Brands. Any idea what era?

(Also, where is the best way to post stuff like this? New post like this, latch on to another post dealing with the same brand, or post in the comments section of the brand's blog post?)

Re: Help with authentication vintage stevie nicks shirt on ebay

I'd suggest clicking on the "Ask a question" link below the description of the shirt, asking the seller what type of tag it is, and even asking if they would post a picture of it. From the main picture, where you can barely see the back of the tag, it looks like it has the yellowing of an old Screen...

Nike blue tag torso graphic vintage t-shirt

Has anybody ever seen this graphic before? I haven't been able to find another example of it. Shirt was originally a Medium, and it's in decent vintage shape, with some hard to see stains on the lower front, and some red-ish/pink-ish discoloration on the middle back.

Wilker Industries WIC Motorcycle Jacket - Is it vintage?

I need some help dating this jacket. Any idea what era it's from?

There are details that make me think it could be older, and others that don't. There's also next to nothing I've been able to find out about the company, either in Bakersfield or Nashville.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: ESPN early Screen Stars tag red t-shirt

Thanks, Jimmy! Yeah, the tag is really crisp, so it could be deadstock.

ESPN early Screen Stars tag red t-shirt

I couldn't find any truly old ESPN stuff online. Anybody seen something like this before?

There's a really small hole on the middle front, and a few really hard to see grease-like marks right below the graphic. I'm a little scared to try and get these out.

Any ideas?

Re: Screen Stars has a cousin?

Huh, I never knew that about Art Works, but thinking back on a few shirts I've found with that tag, it makes complete sense now.

Re: Etsy Listing Deactivation Notices

Thanks for the response! In slightly different terms, the notices have mentioned trademark infringement. The Utah item looks to be licensed. It's a Russell Athletic sweatshirt. It looks like you're right about the Nebraska Blackshirts tee, which was probably unlicensed. http://www.defunkd.com/produc...

Etsy Listing Deactivation Notices

This is for any Etsy sellers: Are you guys getting deactivation notices from Etsy's legal department? I've gotten a few pertaining to vintage shirts/sweatshirts of colleges (Utah and Nebraska). The colleges are obviously contacting Etsy and requesting that they take the items down. Etsy does so, and...
