"80s Vintage"-styled Shirts

Wed, 06/11/2019 - 05:44

This has bothered me for a while...

A lot of bootleg shirt distros and have been creating "vintage-styled" t-shirt artwork over the last couple years and to be honest they look nothing like the metal shirts that are authentically from 1980s. It seems like an excuse to cut corners and only screen print primary colors to save money and time. Look at the detail of an Iron Maiden shirt in fuggle74's gallery or tour shirts from the Big Four in their prime; I think it's ridiculous to call 4 blocky ass colors and zero details "vintage" or "80s" inspired!

Anyone else notice this and feel the same way? Or am I just becoming a grumpy old man hahaha
