We get a lot of questions on where our vintage tees come from, whether they're all different, and if customers can request certain characteristics about their tee, so we wanted to share a little bit more info on how the picking process of our vintage tees is done, along with some good examples of the incredible variety of vintage we get our hands on.
- Our vintage t-shirts and thermals are authentic vintage pieces from the 1960’s-80’s. These are pieces that have survived the last 50+ years, let's all give them a round of applause.
- They come in all different shapes & sizes, just like an old rock n' roll tour tee, or boobs, do
- They are at times marked, discoloured & sun faded, sometimes slightly damaged - some more than others, and are each unique in their wear, size, fit, color and condition. Remember, they are older than most of us!
- All of the Born A Bad Seed vintage t-shirts and thermals are unisex and follow the same sizing guidelines as our NEW t-shirts and thermals in the chest measurements. However, each vintage garment has it's own characteristics that will potentially fit differently in length, neck line, and even the shoulders
We get to hand pick these tees and thermals from a very limited selection of well sought after vintage collectors. People spend days digging through piles of donated clothing just the pull one of these gems up from the bottom of the bin 1-2 times/day. It's not an easy job, trust us, we've done it. Given the rarity of them, we try to hand pick the best of the best to offer our customers the highest grade vintage products we can!
If you have any specifications about your vintage tee, please leave notes in the comment/notes section at checkout. We will try our very best to make your personal request happen, but because of the nature of the items we can’t cross our hearts! For example, acceptable requests would be "Thin & soft but with minimal holes & rips, please", an unachievable request would be "super ancient, paper-thin (not so thin you can see my bra though), 100% cotton, small pinholes (around the neckline only) but zero markings whatsoever, thanks". We're happy to accommodate the first note, it's almost impossible for us to deliver the second!
Please enjoy the uniqueness of your vintage tee, or thermal, and we hope you love them just as much as we do.
