Vintage Tags is a field guide designed to assist thrifters and vintage t-shirt collectors in dating shirts by examining changes in the tagging of vintage t-shirt brands over three decades. This book focuses on vintage tags from American brands who produced shirts from the 1970s through the end of the 1990s. Every tag inside the collar of a t-shirt gives clues as to when a shirt was produced. Studying the color, the size, the logo design, and the fonts can help identify the era from which a shirt was made. Half field resource, half art book, Vintage Tags displays large images of each tag in chronological order to feature each brand’s progression of design throughout the years. This accessible guide documents the history of vintage t-shirts and pays homage to those still collecting them.
