    Default 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.

    Was this intentional?

    Anyway, I've noticed Europeans seem to have a fondness for Old America. Like, what is it with the French and the 50s?

    That was back when America was cool
    You are Ian's plaything, responding to his touch with shrieks of orgasmic delight. No woman in the history of the world is having better sex than sex you are having with Ian... in my head.

    They're still around in Oz.
    The Wing Chun fighter may be able to use circular lines in preference to the usual straight line attack. Circular and straight lines go together, just as yin and yang go together. Nothing in Wing Chun is done purely straight, as as nothing is done purely circular. -Patrick Gordon

    To be honest, I'm not sure. It could be "ironic", but again, who knows.

    I don't know... maybe is the kitsch element on it, or the powerful pop-culture image about it...

    I, myself, am a bing fan of old muscle cars.

    Anyway, would it be OK if I bought a couple of those t-shirts? Or would that make me look stupid?
