I need some help with these

Post by RyanB »

The Augusta one I wasn't sure on. Font doesn't look like something that be on a vintage tag, but it is 50/50 made in USA. I've never seen the Hanes tag before but again it said made in USA so I grabbed it. Pocket T-Shirt just looks plain old. It's blank. JIL says made in Egypt. The tag kept curling on me when I was taking the pics. It appears to be an Egypt tourist shirt. Design looks old and it has the vintage feel. Anyone know anything about these tags???

You are the obscure brand master!

Never seen JIL or Pocket T-Shirt brand.

The Hanes is mid/late 90s.

Augusta Sportswear is still in productions today - and it was formed in 1993.

A hint on determining the era is the pit to pit - I bet the Augusta XL is 22+ inches right?

The 80s definitely had much smaller sizing - an 80s XL is like 21 inches max when it's never been washed.

Its a little under 22 inches. It's a YMCA tank top. It's alright if it's not that old. I can always wear it around the house. lol

The Hanes shirt is on the small side. 17" pit to pit and 24" collar to bottom.

Pocket tee is 80's for sure. I've had a bunch of those. Maybe as old as the late 70's. JIL- I almost never grab the foreign tourist tees because all of the tags look like our vintage ones, and the material almost always has the soft vintage feel to it. I see a lot from Egypt and elsewhere in Africa.

I'm with Oscar on that one. I always pass on the foreign tourist for the same reason.

Here's the design of the JIL shirt. I know you can't truly tell much by a design with no copyright, but I figured I'd put it up anyways.

Also, I found a copyright on the Hanes. It was so small I didn't see it. Looks like 1991.
