SCHWARTZ tag: Any info on this Motorhead shirt and brand?

Post by tendodojoman »

I can't seem to find another one like it, and nothing on the brand. There are similar ones on eBay but they all say England or something else under the graphic, and I can't find anything on this oddball brand. Any help?

I would RUN from anything with this tag. Backstory:

I buy liquidation lots and periodically I search for vintage. Finally a few lots came up by Schwartz and I bought a lot of 40 t-shirts, supposedly sitting in boxes for years, deadstock.

Um - NO.

There were all brand new with some of the worst printing I've ever seen, all the with same tag as above. Notice how the tag is stitched in OVER the seam? The tags are added after market and the original tags are removed. If you lift that one, you might even be able to see remnants of the original tags.

Anyway, I file a dispute and this guy from the company calls me about 6 times trying to convince me that these are vintage t-shirts. They had Schwartz tags sewn in over the seams and the originals removed, except they forgot to remove a few. Vintage t-shirts don't have Gildan-Made-in-Honduras tags. I'll post photos of the stuff I got (and returned) below.

Also noteworthy is that ALL the t-shirt I received were single-color prints.

And last, below are photos of another shirt where remnants of the original tag are clear and you can see on the back where the Schwartz tag was stitched in.

Thank you Jimmy! So, the schwartz brand, was never a brand of t shirts? Bucause the tags on this one are really really old. I own a vintage shop for almost 6 years now, so I can tell when a tag is old. The quality of the screenprint is good too, the fabric feels super soft and old. So, now I'm very confused.
