1988 the Smiths "This Charming Man"

Post by caspersphere » Sat Jul 14, 2018 11:23 pm

Here showing a Smiths "This Charming Man" promo tee I have recently acquired. What would you guys say a shirt like this is worth today? As noted, this was originally purchased in 1988 on Melrose ave in Los Angeles. No idea which store this was originally purchased from, but the shirt remains in fairly good condition for it's age and color (an actual beige blank rather than the white one used on the original 1983 release of this shirt, along with different orientation along the text). I've never seen a promo tee for the single that looks like this one anywhere, so I'm stumped as far as value goes.

Thank you for any responses!

Hmmmm. That tag doesnt strike me as 88. I'll post it on our instagram and see what people have to say.

What is the pit to pit measurement?

When I had purchased from the original owner I noticed the tag seemed different, I'm open to hearing anyone else's thoughts on the production date of either this particular tee or this specific era of "Lofteez".

The pit to pit measurement is 24 inches, Im not sure about length since I'm currently not home

Suspicion was confirmed on Instagram...visit our profile and view the feedback. def 90s...likely mid. 24" chest would not exist in the 80s.

That makes sense, considering the 1992 re-release of the single. Maybe this was made to promote that instead.

Thanks for the info!
