Re: Deadstock 80's Rip Curl

Fun follow up to this... Through selling some of this online, I made a contact who works at Rip Curl Head Office. We set up a meeting and I took a bunch of this stuff with me. Ended up selling them roughly $2000 worth of stock. I've still got HEAPS left but this deal got rid of 60 or so items in one...

Re: Strange Adidas with paches

The easiest way to tell on this one is that it has 2 spelling mistakes on the tag. Pretty sure I can read "THE BRAND WITN THE a STRIPES". Plus the logo on the tag is the wrong shape and the font is slightly off too. With this sort of clothing (vintage streetwear) men's is usually worth more because ...

Re: Strange Adidas with paches

It's a bootleg from the 80's or 90's.
Can't imagine it's worth much at all, especially as it's a women's shirt.

Re: Anyone need help with Australian brands???

Yeah I've seen many. It's genuine merchandise from an Australian stage show or musical. Unfortunately they can be really hard to date depending on the show. They used almost the exact same tag for a LONG time. They might still use it now actually. Definitely dates to post-1995 as we added a 9 to the...

Re: Foolproof method of removing ink?

Thanks! It's definitely working gradually. Using rubbing alcohol seems to work a bit but I've been having the most success applying laundry detergent directly on it and scrubbing with a toothbrush. Think I'll just wear this one for a while and keep treating the stains after ever wear. I see what you...

Foolproof method of removing ink?

I've read about a million different ways of removing ink from white shirts.

Just got a bunch of 90's band shirts and this Nirvana one unfortunately has some black stains.

Wondering if anyone has a way to remove ink that has always worked for them?

Would I be best off just to use peroxide?

Re: Rammstein Sehnsucht unknown tag

I think it may be one of those Thai bootleg labels.
I see lots of Thai bootlegs here in Australia because lots of us travel to Thailand.
It's probably not as old as it looks either as they reproduce old images.

I could be completely wrong though...

Re: Deadstock 80's Rip Curl

Thanks for the advice! I wasn't exactly looking for these but when given the opportunity to buy I couldn't really say no. Rip Curl are from my home state so it makes sense that there'd be lots still around here. The main issue is working out how to sell them all and maximize profit. For example, The...

Deadstock 80's Rip Curl

So I recently scored a massive amount of deadstock Rip Curl T-Shirts, Tanks, & Singlets from around the late 70s-mid 80's. There's heaps like the ones in the photos and probably another 50 other designs. Just wondering if anyone has experience dealing with multiple of the same deadstock shirts? Obvi...

Mystery XMAN 1991-1992 T-Shirt

A while ago I bought this from a guy who worked security for lots of hard rock bands in the late 80's-mid 90's. I got a bunch of deadstock shirts. Every other T-Shirt I bought from him were well known bands (Iron Maiden, KISS, Guns n Roses etc.) and one other one had a picture of a made up band whic...
