How to Spot Fake Vintage T Shirts

Fake vintage t-shirts can be easily identified if they have modern labels that are made by brands that are in production today. Labels from the 1980s and 90s are usually composed of silk or paper, either in the USA or Australia, or a combination thereof. These are all signs that a vintage shirt isn't authentic. If you're not sure, you can always buy the original one from a local store.

Unsound Rags

For vintage T-shirts, look no more than Los Angeles's Unsound Rags. The brooding store has everything from Levis to work jackets and an exotic selection of vintage T-shirts. There are hilarious graphic t-shirts as well as rare t-shirts from the shoegazer band. You can also visit Select Vintage to find a collection of t-shirts from 1990s and 2000s.

Sweet Vintage T-shirts

For a vast selection of tees, consider Sweet Vintage T-shirts. Their name is Google-friendly, and they offer everything from sweatshirts to t-shirts with vintage designs. Some brands are more specific than others. "No Maintenance" T-shirts view stains on the back of an unadorned T-shirt as flavor. The store has a loyal following of customers who prefer to wear their vintage t-shirts as is and others are looking to revamp their wardrobe.

Although the term "vintage", is not used loosely it does not mean that the tee is new. The majority of vintage tees were at the very least 10 years old. In the past, Defunkd Collective required that the t-shirts had to be 15 years old to qualify. However, today, any t-shirt produced prior to 2002 is considered to be vintage. This is due to the fact that the designs aren't based on modern-day t-shirts.

Metropolis Vintage

If you've been a shopper of vintage style clothing for years, you've probably noticed the line of Metropolis Vintage t-shirts. These retro-inspired shirts were created by independent artists and are available in sizes XS through XXL. There are many styles and colors to pick from that include crew necks slim fit, a slim fit, and short sleeves. You can also choose a moisture-wicking active t-shirt for those hot summer days.
