Re: Choose One T-Shirt From Your Collection...

To be honest, it would be my Gary Numan... but as I waxed autistic about that on the blog, here's the biggest, best, and funnest score I ever made at a thrift store: Run-DMC!

I'm wearing my Adidas right now... though Reebok Pumps would prove to be better flotation devices. I live dangerously.

new subject heading

Right now, there's no category for "I found a neat vintage t-shirt, isn't it awwwwwesome?" without any business angle. Any chance a show and tell forum might happen? Or is that out of the jurisdiction of the forum?

Re: 3-D Emblem T-Shirts.

What is it about Thailand (it's that whole part of Asia, really) that produces such 3d mania?

Re: 1989 Wallace and Gromit

It's one of those borderline cases that depends on the marketplace. Looking at those old listings, they were generally XL shirts, and they went on the first bid- which means they might (or might not) have gone higher with a higher opening bid. Mine's an M, and it's somehow harder to find the smaller...

Re: 1989 Wallace and Gromit

For the uninitiated: W&G are part of a British claymation short film series, started on the BBC, with inventor Wallace getting his poor dog Gromit into trouble. They starred in a little-seen feature film not long ago- same folks did Chicken Run. They were all the rage when I was in university, with ...

1989 Wallace and Gromit

NOS condition Wallace and Gromit shirt from back in the day: probably not actually 1989 (that would be the first movie, and who knew what was going to happen?) but still, early 90s at most, before any feature films. Teal-coloured, sized M: 20" pit-to-pit/30.5 back-collar-to-hem. Has its own Wallace ...

Tragically Hip 1991

My brother got this when they played one of his university pubs during frosh week- they did that kind of thing a long time ago. I know the Hip are Canadian, but they do have trace elements of an American following (the live album was recorded in Detroit, after all) and this is from their high period...

The Ethics of Vintage Bootlegs on eBay

I'm always thrilled to find some unlicensed relic of the past in a thrift store (as I am with the licensed ones), and have sold a bunch, which gives me cash to supplement my disability cheque. But I can't shake the feeling that I'm jobbing somebody: I always show the tag and (lack of) copyright, but...

Berlin - Pleasure Victim

Have been interested in a shirt commemorating Berlin's "Pleasure Victim" album/tour. Preferably something with Terri Nunn looking saucy (yes, I am that guy). pit to pit should be 19-20", but 18" is okay if the shirt widens to about 20". Anybody got the item?
