40 Rad Vintage T-Shirt Designs

The whole vintage t-shirt craze of a couple years ago was one of those rare instances where I was on board of a trend well before it actually became fashionable.  Now that the trend is slowly “fading” out and mall kiosks are overstocked with tacky reissues of unsold Ramones concert tee’s – I’m still rockin’ my vintage shirts looking like Johnny-come-lately.

It is in celebration of this slowly dying fashion trend that I have put together a showcase of 40 Rad Vintage T-Shirt Designs for your amusement.  Enjoy.

  1. Nice T-Shirts. My favorite would have to be the Retro Apple Logo. Classic.

  2. Nice line-up – especially the baseball strike one – I found that relic years ago during one of my my hunts, but the armpits were crusted with a deodorant mishap, and it couldn’t be saved, and I haven’t seen it again until now.

    Slowly dying? Noooooooooooooooooo, say it ain’t so! We’re keeping the vibe alive at our vintage t-shirt blog, thanks for the link!
