as promised, what seems like 16 years ago, i'm addicted to vintage t-shirts and am going to share some of my favorites here.
we'll start with my most blockbuster of heavy hitters - my parents' college t-shirts. i don't wear these, but i could.
first off here is my mom's souvenir from the University of Rhode Island SAE Spring Weekend 1970.
it's a beautiful faded red-orange color.
awesome contrast stitching seams
sweet v-neck style
ooooold sportswear label
best part is it's a nightshirt! pretty bold that the fraternity t-shirt giveaway is a NIGHTshirt. gotta love the 70's!
(my dad was not an SAE. i'm not asking too many questions about how she got this one. just loving it.)
the other most prized t-shirt in my collection is this one of my dad's also from URI, circa 1968.
extremely faded navy blue
distressed, but hanging in there
check out that 60's vintage champion runner tag
air conditioning vents on back
these shirts are not for sale, nor will they ever be for sale. you know what, if somebody wants to send me $1 Million for them ($2M for both), i would part with them. other than that, forget it.
this concludes the priceless edition of 'my old clothes.' stay tuned for more of my favorites, ones that i actually wear, sometime in the near future.
