I live in Vietnam so this is pretty rare to come by. My mind was blown away after reading the back story behind this piece. This is absolutely an interesting T-shirt.

Thanks for sharing! beauty! I did a little digging and that design seems to be more unique, I found other don't bug me shirts and none like yours.

Now that the single stitch double stitch thing is on my radar - I noticed the collar was double-stitched, dug around, and found another example of the same Hanes tag with double stitching on the collar.

And a second one with the more standard stitching.

Interesting comparison between the two - the more modern one has that strip of fabric above the tag (what is that called BTW?!), whereas the double stitch one has a more raw construction and the rear seam is visible.

Woa nice found. I also live in Vietnam. I'm always a bit jealous with thrifter or vintage sellers in USA because it seems so easy to get a nice quality vintage piece over there. But your found encouraged me. I'll try to dig deeper :lol:
