Is That Shirt Vintage? Yes, You Are Older than You Think



To collect vintage clothes is to know that one day, you’ll come across a shirt that will send you into an existential spiral. 

For me, that moment came last month, as I was tooling around eBay in search of aged band tees. Bam, there it was. The very same Green Day “American Idiot” shirt that I bought new as a sneering tween was now being sold as “vintage” for a not insignificant sum of $100. To see your childhood resold as vintage—could anything make you feel older than that? Mind you, I’m just 32.
