obsessing over: vintage tees

I guess I have my musician father to thank for my obsession. Ever since I was a kid, he’s had an immaculate collection of perfectly faded XL band tees—some from back when he was growing up, others he’d spent hours picking through vintage stores to find (and many served as go-to childhood pajamas). So as I got older I started my own eclectic collection of vintage band shirts (not to mention a bunch of cassette tapes and records to match), and now I just can’t stop. The whole vintage tee thing isn’t a new trend, but as someone who has spent a lot of time and money perfecting her stash, I have some tips, tricks, and advice for starting your very own collection—click through the gallery to check them out.
