I was poking around in my closet- thinking about (heavy on the “thinking” part…) doing some re-organizing and started looking at some of my older concert shirts.
Now, I’m pretty fortunate- I probably own a couple hundred of them- many put away for posterity- and I realized that a few I still wear are getting fairly old and are beginning to show their age.
The oldest one I’m still wearing (and will be put away very soon) is an Alice In Chains “BlackDiamondSky” tour shirt- now over 11 years old.
It also made me wistful for all that have gone away- I had so many great shirts from the 80s and 90 that were lost to the washing machine’s rigors or to past girlfriends, (“Please get out of my Van Halen t-shirt before you jinx the band and they break up…”) or, just gone without a trace.
So I wondered- what is your oldest concert shirt you’re still wearing? Which ones do you miss? Do you put them away for safekeeping when they start to get old? Hit up our facebook page to weigh in.
If you have one of these vintage shirts hanging around in the back of your closet, you could be in the money… – – – – – – 1969 Woodstock t-shirt – $1,188 When half a million people descended on Max Yasgur’s farm in New York in August 1969 for three days of ‘Peace, Love and Music’, the one thing they didn’t find was an official t-shirt stand.
