Vintage T-Shirts - a piece for every occasion

Whether as a basic t-shirt or statement piece, t-shirts always accompany us . Even better if you use a sustainable alternative to the classic and fall back on secondhand and vintage T-shirts. In the following we would like to explain why we are so passionate about vintage T-shirts.

Which styles and fabrics do we differentiate in vintage t-shirts?

Double and single seams A classic distinguishing feature between secondhand (younger than 20 years) and vintage (older than 20 years) are the thread stitches or seams in English Stitches . This can be checked particularly easily on the hem and sleeves.

While today only double seams are used, as the two parallel thread stitches stabilize each other, hems and sleeves were previously hems and sleeves with a single stitch (in English Single Stitch ) sewn.

Round neck & V-neck In addition to dating the age, different styles can also be determined. Because vintage T-shirts can be easily distinguished by the neck area. While the round neck in English Round Neck defines the absolute basic style and cannot be assigned to a fixed stage, certain V-necks are typical for specific industries. Particularly deeply cut V-necks are a clear indication of the 1970s.

Cotton & Polyester Hardly any other solid item of clothing has been made from one material as consistently as the T-shirt. Originally they are almost exclusively available in thick cotton vintage t-shirts with simple stitches. In the course of the early 1970s, more and more mixed materials were added. However, the polyester and cotton blends did not prevail because they neither have the clear advantages of cotton (warmth, natural fibers, absorb sweat) over polyester (light, stretchy, sweat outwards).

This is how they developed Polyester t-shirts initially for everyday wear. However, these became less and less popular in the course of the 80s and 90s. Today there is a clear separation into synthetic fibers for sporting activities and natural fibers, especially the popular cotton. 80s vintage t-shirts can be recognized by a thick cotton blend and single stitch hems.

How did the t-shirt come about?

The T-shirt has its origins around 1800 as an undershirt, which covers the armpit and was usually worn under blouses, bodices and shirts to absorb sweat and to warm the wearer.

Hardly imaginable today, as many people wear a T-shirt for their upper body, but since it was considered underwear, it was frowned upon to be able to see a T-shirt.

Because underwear is still an uncertain. In the meantime, however, the development of the T-shirt has been able to establish itself in the seafaring industry. At that time, seafarers wore the rigging shirts, which, apart from the neck area, came very close to today's T-shirt or longsleeve.

The frequent dissemination of photos of sailors in the Navy, especially during World War II, made showing T-shirts more acceptable. But until the 1950s with movie icons and sex symbols like James Dean and Marlon Brando, T-shirts slowly became fashionable as outerwear.

As a result, vintage t-shirts found their way into the American fashion world in the 1960s and became popular in Europe, albeit 10 years later.

What is special about the T-shirt is that it was one of the few items of clothing that was immediately worn by men and women unisex. Nonetheless, the hip-hugging girlie T-shirt is still popular today as a more “feminine” version. The feminine shape of the simple T-shirt is the so-called girlie shirt.

In the German origin of the word, it is most likely the undershirts and camisoles that can be directly equated with the T-shirts Today one would rather associate them with sports bibs or tank tops. A fitting example of how fashion has become internationalized, especially in Italy, France, the USA and Japan and has displaced the names that used to be typical for the country.

Different styles of second hand t-shirts

Often underestimated and yet simply good are, in our opinion, the monochrome shirts Shirts with a small or without a logo . We simply call them Basic Vintage T-Shirts . Even if the exciting prints of earlier decades are exciting and a lot of them pass as collectors' items. At Zeitgeist, we believe that a vintage shop should also offer the opportunity to be a real alternative to fast fashion. So we also take care of the basic t-shirts.

The fun t-shirts and the crazy print motifs stand in complete contrast to the basics. They are conspicuous and loud and guarantee the wearer of one - the looks of the other . Some of them are hidden gems that you can buy cheaply from us, others are so unique that you can win a Bad Taste Contest. No matter which one you choose, our Crazy Tshirts are always unique.

Vintage sports t-shirts are particularly popular with us, especially from sports clubs Canadian and American universities and colleges . The best examples are the Michigan Spartans, Miami Dolphins, Memphis Grizzlies and many more. We are happy to send you a touch of North American flair as a vintage t-shirt .

For those who are enthusiastic about music and corresponding new and old merchandise products , our band T.Shirts are exactly the right thing for them. Whether popular evergreen rock bands like Metallica, ACDC or Guns Roses, Spanish singer songwriters or American hip-hop acts. There is something for everyone.

Do you fancy brands? In addition to the sports brands already mentioned, we also have the classics such as Tommy Hilfiger, Polo Ralph Lauren and many more. We are happy to provide our customers with small and large logos.

Below is a list of all popular t-shirt styles.
