Rin is a very cool guy,inquisitive and super friendly.When he gets his teeth into something,he really goes for it.I have been lucky enough to meet him several times and have submitted clothing to his guides.He does have a good knowledge,but by seeking out the top dealers/collectors he manages to expand that knowledge and make usfull,informative reference books.

I tried to interview him, but he's not so good on the ol' internet. Here's the 4 reviews I did:

There's another book called, "T-Shirts" By Susan Miller that didn't make the cut. It was all mid 90s and beyond, lots of Gildan, Delta, and modern FOTL tags. Not sure what the point of it was. Avoid.

Wow.

Of the clothing that you've owned/sold, what are your favorite pieces?
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!

So many,for so many different reasons.Heres just a few:
1.Dead Kennedys 'kill the poor shirt'.This is front and back print heavy cotton,soft and out of shape but original and a great reminder of my youth.
2.Vintage Stone Henge 'stoned henge' festival shirt,home made and a classic.
3.70's Star Wars 'iron on' shirt that I managed to get Ewan McGreggor to wear in a photo shoot many years ago.
4.My first pair of Levi XX that I bought from someone in the street.
5.Original Terry DeHavilland 2-tone snake skin pimp shoes.
6.A-1 style 30's/40's goatskin jacket.
+100's of others that I hoard and occasionally move on.
