I hadn't seen that "The Knits" tag before either.

That is definitely a real 1979 Grateful Dead tour tee.

Not sure exact year on this one. Came from a lot of blanks between late 70s and early 80s. Can't pinpoint where the designer was pulling inspiration from for the design haha.

This one came from a lot of unlicensed Girls Just Wanna Have Fun shirts. Should be around 1985.

Thanks dude - I updated our BrandPedia entry using the RN number on that tag....reveals a lot.

here's the RN details:

and here's a lengthy read about Union and Fruit of the Loom - which merged in 1985 so it makes sense of that Screen Stars style Knits tag:

That's the great thing about this forum, the beige tag is totally foreign to me as well.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!
