You’ve probably come to realise by now that I’m a bit of a hoarder? I prefer to think of myself as more of a ‘historian’ (at least that’s what I tell my wife!) Some of this old crap has survived for over 40 years. I’ve lugged it all with me from house to house / attic to attic, all in the belief that one day future generations might find it remotely interesting. I guess there was also the belief that some of this shit “might be worth something one day” but, to be perfectly honest, I don’t think I could bring myself to part with any of it now unless somebody was to make me a ridiculous offer!
During another recent foray into the attic I decided to open up an old suitcase that was sat gathering dust. I could vaguely remember what was in the case but I was a little apprehensive about what state it might be in. Despite smelling a little ‘fusty’ I was pleasantly surprised with what I found and the condition of the items inside. Here is a selection of classic rock and metal T-shirts that I purchased and wore during my youth in the 1980s. If you don’t believe me I’ve included some pictures of me wearing my vintage merchandise ‘back in the day’ – except it wasn’t vintage then! Enjoy…
