    Any idea how to determine the age of this NOS Adidas shirt?

    I called Customer Service (no help) and I tried the live chat. No help.

    Also googled adidas labels and I think this is from the late 70's or early 80's. But, The collar/style looks a little newer than that. I have included the paper tag if that helps.

    That ATP logo came into being in 1973.

    So, between 1973 and 1990. According to the Fashion Guild website, here is a logo/label from the 70's.

    Looks like the one on the shirt

    But, I don't know how to narrow it down. I would think if it were really 70's, the collar would be bigger. Maybe its late 70's?

    Who posted recently about selling NOS Hanes T-Shirts? I found a six pack of them. Unfortunately, it has been opened and there are only two left. But, they are new. Still folded from the factory. The copyright on the package is 1988. Just wondering what to do with them.

    1988 isn't old enough IMO. I think he was talking 70's or older. I think his were from the 60's.

    Just one thing, but so beautiful.
    Paul Stuart multi-color glen plaid sportcoat without content tag, but feels like silk/wool and fit like 39R

    Damn! I wish that I still owned my break dance era boom box. It was one of those huge ones that even had short wave 1 & 2. It only had one flaw. One of the speakers had a small dent in it where I kicked it after becoming enraged over cutting myself trying to free a Doug E. Fresh cassette from one of those barbaric plastic anti-theft contraptions.
