Bantam(s)

A comprehensive resource of defunct t-shirt labels manufactured prior to the year 2000.


Brand #8: Bantams, Bantam

Circulation: Fairly Common

Era: Late 1970s to late 1980s

Information: The original Bantams tag (far left) featured two roosters who appear to be engaged in a cock fight. At some point in the early 80s the tag was revamped to feature a single rooster and the “s” was dropped from the name. Perhaps one rooster killed the other during the viscous battle? We can only assume given there’s no information about the vintage Bantam(s) brand anywhere. What we do know is that the term ‘bantam’ originated from the city of Bantam which was a major seaport in Indonesia that supplied small poultry to European sailors.
