View Full Version : Fake vintage t-shirts

A few years ago, this trend started in Spain. Franchises like Springfield, Pull & Bear (Inditex group) and the like began selling T-Shirts that looked like they were taken out of the "That 70's show" costume department.

They had printed fake american football teams logos and similar things, like: "Arkansas Wild Raptors" or "Dakota Mountains Gas Station Company", or "Montana National Forest Reserve Staff", or "Kentucky Tigers" and such. More often than not, they even sport fake slogan, usually with unaccurate or plainly bad english grammar.

I personally didn't like them, even if some of them were kinda appealing, but I would feel silly wearing a t-shirt about a fake football team, or something like that.

I was hoping they'd eventualy run out of states and cities, but it's been five years or so, and the trend is still going strong.

Do you have this kinda sutff overseas too? Because my guess is that if I was walking in the 'states wearing a t-shirt with the slogan "Hawaii Coastal Lifeguard Personell" with a fake logo and all, I'd probably be laughed at.

Too bad I can't find a pic of what I'm talking about at the moment, will try later.

There's nothing wrong with that, except that graphic ts are not a classic look. You can rock a white tshirt with dark jeans like its the 50s and not look dated in the least, but we're talking about copping a dead trend from half a decade ago here.

Striped and ringer ts are classics. Gaphic ts aren't necessarily bad but they can be dangerously trendy.

Thrift stores are mostly crap, though you can luck out now and then. You have to look for dedicated vintage stores or ebay sellers with new old stock if you want a good selection of vintage clothes in good condition.

BTW, I beleive this is the second time you subtly dropped that I should dress 50's style, altrough I don't know why.

Here's what I usually wear. No, I ain't posting pics. Feel free to critiquize my lack of taste.

I beleive I developed "my style" during college and at 30 I'm still dressing that way. If this is good or bad, is something I've yet to figure out.

From bottom to top:

-Sneakers, from different brands and different types, from Chuck Taylors to Vans, Ascis and Adidas.
-Jeans, blue jeans with different fading, from somewhat clear to dark navy. I have loose fit and slim fit, but usually stick to regular fiut because they are the ones who look best on me.
-T-shirt. Stripped, ringer and both. Also graphic t-shirts, but I try to avoid the ones with stupid slogans.

This is my basic gear for summer time.

In fall I usually put on a jumpjacket, I really love them, have a few in different colors 8my favourite being a orange one, and the green one coming as a close second). If it is getting cold I like to put on a short-sleeved tee over a long-sleeved tee. I usually try to get somo colour contrast out of it (red/blue, or if it's a stripped long-sleeved tee, I try to match the short-sleeved one to one of the colours in the stripped tee).

Sometimes I swithc the jumpjacket for a cotton open hoodie. I also have several in different colours. A couple of them are stripped too.

Or, alternatively, I put on a light jacket, which I also have several.

Of course, fall and early springtime are my favourite periods when it comes to dressing up because I really love jackets, almost any kind.

Sometimes I put on my "nice 1976 you got there" gear, which consists in Chucks, faded jeans, faded denim jacket and a graphic tee-shirt.

And I also have a leather jacket I'm quite fond of, that I usually wear in winter time, similar to this one:

http://clothingtutor.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/leather-jacket-sample.jpg

Sometimes, if it is really cold, I wear a vintage german military parka I bought at el rastro in Madrid. Or one fo the jackets I have for snowboarding.

There, feel free to put me down.

Why can't you take a Japanese person's photograph without getting the peace sign? I found a camera on a bench at the Osaka Aquarium once and tried to look through the pictures to see if I could figure out whose it was and EVERY SINGLE GODDAMNED PICTURE had some dork throwing up the peace sign in it. People even try to get me to do it when they take my picture and I have to explain that we don't do that anywhere else in the world.

The only reason there's no peace sign in the first picture is because the guy didn't see the photographer, I'm convinced. Otherwise he'd toss one over his back.

Didn't it used to be "V for victory?" Perhaps all the US Marines were over there gloating, and the Japanese just thought it was some gesture of greeting we round-eyes did.

i'd explain these shirts with my theory (http://www.sociocide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53901).

for example, the "1973 tai chi chamionships" one i've seen. it conjures up things like being well-traveled, athletic, competitive, spiritual. and the decade in itself is kinda cool for various reasons.

by wearing these shirts you attach yourself to the attributes they connote.

Basically, associating with a certain sports culture (american football is non-existant in Spain... well, I think there was one american football team) while at the same time not sticking to one particular real team and thus, avoiding the implications.

football (like many sports) represents strength, athleticism, commitment, competitiveness and so on.

if you saw someone wearing the real version of these shirts in america, you might assume they've played football. so you're taking on their attractiveness without having to do any of the hard work.

I've seen many people who are really out of shape wearing soccer shirts and the like.

I don't think just because somebody is wearing such a shirt actually plays the sport. Specially in a country in which said sport is only known thanks to movies and tv shows (something big happens in american football on thanksgiving, right?). Besides, I doubt any football player can fit in an european 'S' size shirt.

Well, they were oversized, but the fit was just the same.

I have yet to buy online from an american seller, the sizing issue is what's keeping me from doing so. It doens't help the put the measures in inches.

Years ago I bought a few shirts from this place:

http://www.t-s.fr/

They fit perfectly, and the quality is really good. I have worn them a lot and washed them a lot too, and the graph hasn't faded in the slightlest. And the t-shirts in themselves have also aged pretty well. You can tell they ain't brand new, but they don't show how much they've been worn and washed.

In this particular case I beleive they are rather associating themselves with the aesthetics of old America rather than anything else.

As I said, the America of the 50's, 60's and 70's has some kitsch component to it that us, europeans, find quite attractive.

I guess people are trying to look more like a character from "that seventies show" rather than associating with the sport in itself.

On my defense I must say that they were cheap and they fit me quite nicely. It helps that all theexercise I've been doing lately is begining to show.

I bought this one (http://www.jackjones.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10051&storeId=11201&productId=136002&langId=110) and this one (http://www.elcorteingles.es/multitienda/producto/producto2.asp?hddref=110067&cpam=0144&tpam=ccm&ccat=&ecip=956&ecipd=602&ecis=225). Can't find a pic of the third one.

The Jack & Jones shirt I bought in L size, and it fits quite tight, as the black one I bought in M.

I'm noticing that lately, some franchises in my area no longer have XL sizes available and are reducing the sizes. And no, it is not me getting fatter, in fact, I'm getting leaner. And considering I'm quite average in height and weight, I'd say they are banning slightly fatty people from buying their stuff.

Maybe that's why I'm finding men reaching middle-age or overweight guys wearing the same shirts as me. That bothers me a little, I must confess.

EDIT: The Jack and Jones shirt I bought is not exactly the same in the pic, the grpah is slightly different, but the color is the same.

that's what i'm saying, if the brand name wasn't durable enough to last to today there was probably a reason, and it's unlikely that you managed to find some limited run artisanal designer from the 60s so they're probably shit. When I'm buying sight unseen I tend to stick to old classics like Pendleton or Woolrich.

I was taking a little walk on the mall after work and ended up buying more crap. Like if I had space left for more clothes.

A t-shirt with a vintage looking graph of a pair of boxing gloves (couldn't resist) and yeat another track jacket. currently I could wear a different track jacket for every day of the week and still have a couple more for next week.

I bought it because I really liked the coulours, but dislike the fake vintage football team shit it has on the front. But since everything cost me less than 20€... (less than a supporting membership, conversion rates, motherfuckers, do you know what those are?).

Oh, and also got myself some cologne. I remmember it smelling quite good when I tried it months ago, but since I have a bit of a cold, well, it could smell like dog ass and I wouldn't notice.

Storm Riders usually are, I've never seen one with a cotton lining like that.

LO you should take up silk screening and make your own tacky ass american shirts. Sick ass 70s fonts and all the above stated usage of using words like, athletics, or dates ect. I will give you examples, you could like make one that says
"N.A.M.B.L.A. Father/son basketball champions 1982" or a cool ringer tee that just says "RAPE FANATIC" shit man almost anything will do. "carrier of herpes since 1979."

Its funny for all who are in on the joke and the non english speakers are stoked that everybody thinks they are superior N.A.M.B.L.A. members, and atheletes!

Like which, blanket lined or the one in the link? Come to think of it, i'm not sure if the blanket lined jackets I've seen were Lee or Levis.

Actually, I have a couple of those. Took a kickass drawing I found on the internet of a Ford Mustang Boss to a shop I know which personalizes t-shirts and walked out with a new custom ringer t-shirt. And since the prints fade after the first wash, it looked vintage in no time.

Next time I'm on the big city, I'll make sure to get me a couple more.

Storm Riders are usually blanket lined. I've seen Levi's with blanket and sherpa lining, but I've never seen a denim jacket with a quilted cotton lining like that.
