Now that we have the “definitions” out of the way, let’s focus on how you can get your hands on them, without having to spend a fortune. Trust me, if you happened to enter a store that sells premium vintage clothes, you might just have to fork out a pretty lump sum amount. But that’s not going to happen here because we will provide you enough tips and tricks that’ll keep your hard-earned money where it belongs, in your wallet.
The clothes are sometimes sold in bulk for a very low price, which is an absolute bargain. Plus you’ll have a ton of variety to choose from. Talk to store employees and managers to get tips on when high-end clothes will be placed for sale.
Since the t-shirts have been either previously worn and discarded or are old, the labels will generally be faded. At times, they don’t even have any brand stamps (t-shirts manufactured before the 70s).
Most vintage t-shirts are a 50/50 poly-cotton blend, and the screen prints on the t-shirt have a rubbery texture. This happens because the polyester can’t absorb the ink that is sprayed over the t-shirt.
Take the t-shirt in your hands. Does it feel soft, or thick and starchy? Well, if it’s the latter, then perhaps you don’t really have the right one.
Your regular t-shirts and the vintage ones will not be of the same size; the latter will be smaller. If you’re at a store, do make it a point to try them on. And if you’re making an online purchase, be sure to compare the chest size, and the length of the t-shirts.
Keeping the thrift stores and Salvation Army stores aside, if any stores or websites claim to be selling “authentic” vintage t-shirts, the price will give away its true value. A reproduced t-shirt will not be as valuable as an authentic one.

Going to the beach or hanging out with friends, there’s no specific reason or time to wear vintage t-shirts. Give yourself a fresh new look by wearing quirky vintage t-shirts with shorts, pants, and jeans. And in order to pull the look off flawlessly, choose other clothing items with care. There’s absolutely no need for layers, unless the weather pressures you into it. You want to capture the I-just-woke-up-and-put-this-on kind of sexy look.
