Good afternoon, Wednesday! Good afternoon, WTF!

Here we have a majestic bald eagle. Painted on velvet.


This lady golfer is wearing pilot goggles, staring into the sun, and seems to have lost her clock.

screw you, vince lombardi sweater! i found the russia sucks hat!

in a turn of events i can only describe as tragic, some other vintage sellers from tennessee recently came into the asheville thrift zone and found a vince lombardi west point sweater, which they proceeded to sell for over $40,000

well guess who found the vintage 80’s “russia sucks” *blinking light* velvet mesh trucker hat?

it is cold war chic, rocky 4 come to life. 

at the modest price of $10,000, you could buy 4 of these for one vince lombardi sweater. but good luck finding 3 more.

my old clothes: tarheels edition: part 2

when last we left, i’d shown 5 of my favorite vintage unc t-shirts.

here are 5 more favorites – all basketball-related. 

soft, thin, and true. carolina basketball is a perennial power.

looks pretty basic here – carolina basketball school – vintage t-shirt from the summer camp:

but it’s a champion blue bar tag, dating it to the mid 70s. sweet!

here’s another of the softest silkiest t-shirts i own. love the repeated graphics and the hair on the player. michael jordan era – ncaa champions 1982. 

1981 1982 ncaa champions t-shirt

this must be one of the most obscure carolina basketball t-shirts ever made. gastonia, NC – city of the all-americans – russell athletic from the late 70’s. honoring james worthy (UNC) and sleepy floyd (georgetown) – who both grew up in gastonia. 

sleepy floyd james worthy gastonia 70s t-shirt

last but not least, coach k drinks winecoolers. this is not as old as the others, probably only 15 years or so, but it makes me laugh every time. 

coach k drinks wine coolers

you know he does! 

although the tarheels did not advance past the sweet sixteen this year, it was a great season, and we can all still find pleasure in the remaining games by rooting against duke.
