I thrifted this Nike tee - It’s repo, but damn convincing

Post by Inmind »

To the untrained eye. I bought it so that it could not be passed off as true vintage by someone. The shirt has stitching that definitely new shirt stitching, the tag is a throwback style but with a website. The print is flaking and is very convincing that it might be from 1990 if one didn't know better.

pretty obvious repo to anyone who frequents this site..but I definitely could see someone trying to sell that rig. You saved someones ass, that was cool of you.

I've been picking for a few years and this is the first dated repo that I've seen. I couldn't let it be passed off as legit. If those tag were cut out it would make it tough for even a well trained eye unless it was seen and felt in person.

It does seem like a pretty odd/random shirt for Nike to make a reproduction of though.
