Mccoys or Flat Head

Mccoys

Flat head

I think the RMC looks better. Flathead just looks somewhat uncomfortable.

another consideration...is the Flathead made of horsehide? If so, the sleeves shorten as they crease and wrap to your arms with wear. They’re already kinda short so I might go for the RMC based on that alone

I tend to avoid things that become extremely trendy, much as I may be initially drawn to them. It’s not just a knee-jerk cooler-than-thou reaction to trends. It’s because I know I almost always regret purchases I’ve made on that basis. And as far as extremely trendy goes, not much can match vintage Ts right now.

Is vans sizing tts brannock?
I do TTS sneakers for lace ups (so, up 1 from my Brannock: 8.5–>9.5). I used to go down .5 from sneakers (up .5 from brannock) but they was too small in retrospect. I do however go down .5 from sneakers (up .5 from Brannock) on my Vans Vault slipons.

Is the crap old tees a thing?
If so, I have a bin full of them.
Starting @ $200, I offer a "Free OJ" and a Bart Simpson Oakland A's tee in mint condition.

I don't understand why anyone would want to wear a Nascar T-shirt of any vintage, but that one looks particularly bad. And at $115, someone is laughing all the way to the bank.
Pair it with some Oakleys and you got a good redneck dad look going on. It’s fun 👍

I would love to find my old 90s tees, but have no idea where they are. Used to have some great ones, although I don't know if they'd fit me anymore.

I'd happily buy some old rap tees, but those are near the top of the price scale in terms of this trend.

Every t-shirt I wore in the 90s is exactly where it should be...a landfill.

The weird thing about that trend is that it veers towards the most mallcore of 90s tees. I remember Wu-Tang shirts were considered wack in the 90s, even though everyone liked the group. Same with the super expensive Fugees and Tupac type of tees.
