9780061144622: Vintage T-Shirts: More Than 500 Authentic Tees from the '70s and '80s

T-shirts have become an essential fashion and lifestyle statement. However you wear them, or whatever picture they depict or slogan they announce, they are a form of self-definition for both the average person and kids in cutting-edge subcultures. A true T-shirt aficionado can tell a vast amount about a person's style and attitude to life, just from the shirt they wear. "Vintage T-shirts" pays homage to the obsessional love of tees in all their guises - and the nostalgic memories they bring. The book takes a visual journey through the world of music, television, film, art, sport, advertising, skate and surf, hip-hop culture, cars and girls, games, and all aspects of popular culture that make this item of clothing such a long-lasting and covetable staple. In addition, there are several special feature spreads that take a look celebrity wearers, collector profiles, street style, customization and manufacturing.
