80s FLY T-shirt.. Nike? Levi's?

Anyone ever seen one of these? I can't tell if it's referencing Levi's, Nike, or none of the above. Screen Stars label.

Never seen. But definitely Levis comes to mind. Best explanation is that it's a bootleg version of this Button Your Fly print. Def. similar font, just dumbed down to avoid a lawsuit?

...or it could be some obscure print as the term FLY was big in the world of 1980s hip hop.
