GET Teejerker Vintage Band T-Shirts

July 19, 2017

There are two types of people in this world: Those who think it’s absurd to spend more than a hundred bucks on a potentially sloppy-looking piece of cotton, and the ones who are perfectly comfortable with it because they appreciate the timeless value of a great T-shirt. It’s something you want to live in; it almost instantly becomes an old friend. There are a few elements that make a T-shirt great: the texture (thin and soft), fit (loose with some slouch) and the attitude (nonchalant—it’s a T-shirt). While some brands, like Iro, Isabel Marant Étoile and Alexander Wang, generally make pretty stellar new ones in possession of that already worn-in quality, it’s the vintage finds that always ultimately win. 

Enter famed collector Teejerker. They track down some of the most covetable old band T-shirts so you don’t have to with prices ranging from about $63 up to $180 for really rare editions. The 1992 Black Sabbath U.S. tour, 1992 Pixies Trompe Le Monde, and 1987 Anthrax Spreading the Disease European tour, to name a few, are all up for grabs. Remember: It doesn’t make you a poser to buy an old piece of clothing that originally went for, like, $15, for several times the price. It also doesn’t hurt if you’re an actual fan of the band. 

Teejerker just collaborated with British streetwear shop Goodhood London on a capsule collection of 15 iconic band T-shirts at higher price points, which are already sold out, proving the power of the tee should never be underestimated. The collaboration also offers a paperback book for mega-fans, aptly called More Than Just a T-Shirt
