    I know everybody here thinks those pseudo vintage t shirts you find in stores is a fashion faux-pas. Instead, you should keep it real by wearing a t shirt that's naturally faded into a vintage look. However, I've noticed that with my t shirts, I wouldn't be able to wear them long enough to get that look because the collar has already loosened too much and stuff like that. I'm just wondering how people can get that authentic vintage look without the shirt coming apart first.

    And, what about finding any interesting local t shirts when you go traveling. I know you can find some pseudo ones at the mall, but I've never found any authentic ones: either the shirt is too bland or the shirt itself has become too touristy. It seems its getting harder to get a real sense of any city you visit; they've become a disney version of themselves.

    I don't know about how you'd get what you're looking for through laundering, but go to the Salvation Army. It's the best source for what you need. You can find perfect old shirts for $2 or $3. It takes some looking, but it's worth it if you have the time.
