I’m a true vintage junkie. How do I know? Because I’ve always been the weird kid that wanted everything to feel like someone had already broken it in for me. There’s nothing more satisfying to me than finding a pair of jeans that have already been softened, a t-shirt that’s been washed to the point of feeling like a second skin. It’s a very male practice of shopping: I don’t buy things that itch or don’t feel good.

Let’s also admit that I have quite the collection of vintage concert t-shirts. Other people are on the lookout for handbags and the perfect designer ashtray when they troll vintage stores and eBay; I’m still on the hunt for the raglan-sleeved Police concert t-shirt from the Synchronicity tour. When I get my hands on that shirt, it’ll be my Holy Grail and I WILL put a ring on it.

Clearly, this is a rather liberal interpretation of how to style a vintage t-shirt, but this threadbare Iron Maiden version of my uncle’s (I found my grandmother cleaning the house with it and pulled it from her hands almost immediately) is one of my perfect tops to wear with a summer suit. Throw on some gold jewelry, Ray-Ban sunnies and my new favorite Jimmy Choos, and I’m ready for meetings. If you’ve got t-shirts that are just taking up room, try this look  for your next girl’s night out or fun function.

  1. […] worried about looking like a nerd in a suit, here’s a picture of my friend Kristin from Fashion Style Beauty looking nothing but h-o-t in an H&M suit (worn verrrrry casually, obviously). – Above the Law […]
