The horror (or not?) of non-vintage t-shirts

There's a lot of talk about current shirts- the big, chunky 100% cotton shirts generally shunned by shirties- as being "low quality", or otherwise the garment of choice for lieutenants of Satan. I figured that a combination of nostalgia and the good-feeling softness/stretchiness of the cla...

1977 Andy Gibb... and stuff

Fall of the Polycotton Empire

Alas, I looked at the balance sheet, blanched, realized this was going to be more than I expected it to be, and have elected to get out of this entertaining but exhausting racket. Most of my big-ish items are up on auction, to take advantage of the Xmas rush, and I might put one or two more up tomor...

When somebody else has your piece of merch

Picked up a lovely Portishead shirt, and was chuffed with its potentially-lucrative scarcity- but as is often the case, there's more than one of these in the thrift shops and someone in Ontario has another exact copy. For considerably less than I was going to sell it. http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI...

Frankie Goes to Hollywood camouflage bootleg

A nice surprise from Value Village: a surprisingly creative Frankie Goes to Hollywood boot printed on a camouflage shirt. Wouldn't be much without that touch (and in true bootleg fashion, the gimmick is only marginally connected to what's actually printed on the shirt) but it's unusual and a nice su...

Wrestlemania 2 bootleg

Pristine, deadstock, and hipster-friendly measurements of 17" pit-to-pit. But, sadly, a bootleg- and, up close, an obvious one, with a no-name made-in-Canada tag. How should I price this? Is it worth much, or just a little?
