Re: What's up with this Sneakers shirt?

It happens sometimes when the garment is being constructed. The sewers are moving so fast that a section of the t-shirt gets caught and stitched together that shouldn't be. It's purely human error during the manufacturing of the t-shirt.

Re: New York dolls vintage shirt

Someone at some point was attempting to fool their buyers. Upon closer inspection of the suspect tee, you can see where the copy right date and info was rubbed off along the backside of the cowgirls left boot. Original reproduction t-shirt printed by Junk Food Clothing Company with copyright: 2006 O...

Re: New York dolls vintage shirt

Here it is. The exact reproduction t-shirt made by Junk Food, auctioned off by eBay seller parinya1984 claiming it's an original from the 70's. The tee in the auction photos has just been dirtied up a bit with the tag torn out. http://www.asos.com/Junk-Food/Junk-Food-New-York-Dolls-T-Shirt/Prod/pgep...

Re: New York dolls vintage shirt

Ya for sure Jimmy. Typically a tee from the 70's would be like 18" x 28". Very thin and long. Or just completely tiny like 16" x 21" The design is definitely 1973-74. I've seen the genuine t-shirt in book somewhere I just can't remember what book it was. The original is valued at over $1,000.00 I fe...

Re: Ocello?

This graphic is very distinctive from between the years 1980 to 1983. It's definitely early 80's. The muscle tank was also very popular during this time. Just look at how many of the 1983 "US Festival" tees are the muscle tank. By 1985 surf and skate companies had transitioned away from this kind of...

Re: New York dolls vintage shirt

The seller's eBay ID is parinya1984 in Bangkok, Thailand. I studied the photos of this auction for the entire week it was listed. The more I looked at it the more I became convinced that it is a fake. Here's the original listing http://www.ebay.com/itm/290773245825?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p...

Re: 1987 Harley Davidson Tee with Hanes tag

Ya the modern day tees have the Harley tag.

It takes a while to have an eye for spotting the new from the old sometimes. ;)

Re: 1987 Harley Davidson Tee with Hanes tag

@RyanB where's the 1987 date? Is it real small at the bottom of the graphic? If so, that's the copy right date of the artwork not necessarily the date the t-shirt was printed. Many times earlier copy righted graphics are used repeatedly years following the original date the artwork was created and l...
