Atari T-Shirt by Soffe - Help, please!

Post by mrs_stout » Wed Jan 09, 2013 11:22 pm

I'm trying to date this t-shirt and I'm a little stumped. the fabric is not a typical t-shirt fabric, but almost like a very lightweight knit with a t-shirt feel (very 70s/80s type of fabric with thicker athletic trim typical of the period), but the label seems like early 90s to me. Confuses me a bit.

Hmmm yeah chest seems pretty big for a vintage S. Never really explored Soffe but could be an 80s throwback from the 90s.

Soffee brand is late 90s early 2000s. I have an Atari shirt from the 90s and it is a Changes label.

Yeah - 90s for sure. And the company is still going today! But the company info says 1946. And certain I've seen 80s versions of this brand.

I guess I'm over due for another blogpedia update! Just found this:

Further to earlier replies - I have one of these (in green) and I bought it between 98 and 2000.

Still very desirable, everyone loves an Atari! :shock:
