Does anybody have any advice on where one can find some vintage band shirts? Some of the old bands I listen to don't even put out merchandise anymore, and a lot of those who do just have plain ugly shirts. Add to that that I like the look and feel of vintage clothing and I've been on the hunt for some 80's thrash and death metal shirts for a while now.

I have seen a few guys on eBay who sell some old stuff, but the prices are just ridiculous, $300 for a used Megadeth tour shirt? Forget it. I want clothes that i can wear, not some commodity that I need to keep in a safe.

Maybe there isn't anywhere you can buy these shirts at reasonable prices, maybe they're all collector's items by now, I don't know, but if anyone has any links or information then by all means share.

make buddy buddy with some of the older fellows who are more generous, you might be surprised how easily some will part with older shirts if they are giving it to a friend and not a random ebay leech

OR

Get him to make a custom shirt for you. He has some awesome stuff, waiting to see what his dystopia shirt will look like.

Saw this (original 1997 Judas Iscariot shirt) on blackmetal.com. Would've bought it if I wore XL.
