Welcome to my graphic tee renaissance. I feel as if I’ve gone backwards in style time, after years of collared shirts on repeat, I’m reaching for the youthful ease of relaxed cotton and ironic screen prints that recount all the cool things I have not done. Woe is the thirty-something who now laments all the concert tees gone un-purchased in her indie band-hungry twenties! Hindsight’s a bitch.
But then I think there’s some real opportunity here. After all, today’s graphic tees are tomorrow’s vintage. So what will your vintage tee collection look like if you started now? Hey Silicon Valley, what friend’s failed startup tee will you be rocking 20 years from now? Who’s the next Bowie/Ramones/N.W.A. so we can all go now, and in 20 years sip champagne at the country club looking like a badass? “Yeah, I was there. And yeah, it was crazy.”
Also, is it cheating to buy a concert tee on eBay? What if you were totally there, but just didn’t buy the tee at the time? These are hard hitting questions, people!
