      I’ve got an original Pink Floyd t-shirt in very good condition that I purchased at a concert in 1994. I should wear it more often.

      They probably have. AC/DC and Metallica are both cringe normie bands that haven’t put out a decent record in at least three decades.

      Are concert t-shirts /fashion/?

      Wearing band shirts is not cringe if the design looks cool and you can name 3 songs.

    If you wanna wear a band shirt make sure it’s a very underground band or whatever, and style around it. stylish leather jacket, be thin etc. Oh and for the love of god, don’t wear pants that are a different shade of black

        I’m saying you should avoid that combination where either the shirt or the jeans are discoloured (in a bad way) due to age, it just looks lazy and unkempt

          faded black band shirts are kino af
          more than a crisp shirt that looks like it came out of the manufacture’s plastic wrap
          You ARE actually a fan of band, right anon…?

            yea but you’re putting conditions on things as a measurement of fandom but having fashion override the fandom. i mean think about it, "faded black band shirts are kino af." We all know nowadays there’s a high chance that a faded band shirt wasn’t just in the washing machine a million times of a lot of "cool" looking people who wear it.

            Vs., contrary to what you said:

            > "more than a crisp shirt that looks like it came out of the manufacture’s plastic wrap."

            I disagree. The plastic wrapped shirt was either mail-ordered from the band directly or their distro, or it was purchased at the band’s show.

            Of course, the fade can be an indication that the shirt was loved and worn many times by the owner, i’m just saying "fade" has become very popular over the last 20 years and it’s had nothing to do with someone actually being a big fan of a band or not.

            yeah but fashion is for yourself and since you know yourself that you put in the time to love and fade the heck out of your shirt, you’ve earned the right to where it whenever and with whatever you want. In fact I will throw on my faded black Yeezus shirt with some crisp black jeans tomorrow for my OOTD just to spite you

    concert t’s are the only shirts i wear and i only get them from shows. unless it’s a band i really like that’s not on tour, then i’ll buy it from their website. i also get upset when they start to fade. i guess it has nothing to do with fashion for me but rather just great enthusiasm for the band itself. also long sleeves are preferable to t-shirts but i still have tons of those. i also have long hair down to my ribcage so i guess i look the part.

      i should also add too that i never find anything wrong with people like in OP’s pic wearing band shirts, or celebrities, even if they don’t really listen to them. i just see it as promotion for the band.

      I see clothes fading and looking more vintage as part of the charm. I have a few vintage Kanye shirts that I haven’t worn much that haven’t faded too badly but I also have gotten to the point where I feel like I wouldn’t feel to bad when they do because it shows that I’m actually wearing and getting use out of my favorite pieces of apparel. It’s a trend that started with my first pair of raw denim that kinda trickled into a lot of other things that I wear

        That’s pretty cool. I think some of my fear of the fade (haha, wtf lol "fear of the fade") comes from this danzig longsleeve i got on ebay that i always wanted as a kid but, idk, i figured my parents wouldn’t let me have it or something but, i found one on ebay a few years ago for 175 which was a total steal. And it was certainly faded to all hell but the worst part is that it ripped slightly in the shoulder and just, agh. But hey, what can ya do lol

      >Only if you went to the concert yourself

      I disagree. I think if you’re a fan of the band, you’ve got just as much of a right to wear it even if you weren’t able to make the show.

        Just buy regular band merch if you’re a fan. There’s no need to get their 2001 European tour exclusive tee or whatever. On a side note, antique or collector’s concert tees are pretty /fashion/ even if you weren’t alive to make the show. Need to be originals tho

          Well but I mean, if ya like the design or somethin

            Sure, although I think it’s silly to get a concert tee from a concert you didn’t go to, at the end of the day you can wear whatever you want to wear. I’m not here to police your clothes or gatekeep your enthusiasm for a band

    It’s no different from any other graphic/brand tee. The event that they were sold at has nothing to do with how they look.

    I like wearing band shirts because they usually have better designs than most graphic shirts, they represent my interests, and by buying them I give some money to a musician I like. I don’t think they have to be really underground but classic rock shirts are kind of played out and usually have lame designs. I don’t think they have to be bought at a concert to be valid, that’s kind of dumb. As long as it’s solid by the artist the end result is still the same.

      This basically, unless it’s nirvana or Metallica because then I pretty much assume you don’t know the music by default

    I don’t wear band shirts outside, but I have a few and wear them to the gym when lifting weights.

    So basically scruffy band shirt with sports (long) pants. I like the way it looks, maybe I’ll post it in waywt thread

    I wore a bootleg nine inch nails tee to a techno show, and got so much female attention for it, it was unreal. There were b***hes literally feeling me up, it got a little weird. Best $12 eBay purchase ever.

    Went to a ragstock yesterday to find a graphic tee to wear with an unbuttoned denim shirt. They mostly had old band shirts, weed merch and gay pride clothes. The only decent thing on the whole rack was an Eagles 2013 concert shirt with a sick design. They’d been to my city that year so I’ll just pretend I got it at the concert. The only song I know from them is hotel California though

    band tees rule, i get complimented on my stereolab and marquee moon shirts every time i wear em out especially at concerts

    record label tees are a step above imo
