While message tees aren’t for everyone (it’s sort of like paying Gap or Abercrombie to be their billboard), band tees pretty much are. And vintage rock shirts are even better — especially when they’re actually new shirts with retro pictures (’cause wearing someone else’s ragged-out, sweat-stained tee is lame). Voltage Records (90 N. Lexington Ave., 255-9333) has a great selection for men and women including Blondie, the Gore Gore Girls, Jimi Hendrix, the Ramones and more. They run $18.
Looking for hard-to-find music tees? Rerock4ever.com has a good selection of punk and vintage shirts. Wolfgangsvault.com is pricey, but actually carries the real thing from back in the day (the Sammy Hagar 1980 “Taking It To The People” tour ringer-tee runs a wallet-squeezing $98). Shirthunt.com is the place to look for, say, that T-Rex tee with Marc Boland wearing the top hat ($20/men, $24/women).
