I’ve been in a number of thrift stores where I’ve seen lacrosse apparel, and I can usually tell whether or not it’s new or old. If it’s old, I buy it. If it’s new, I let it sit. Recently, my man Rory Baldini sent me a photo of a very OLD SCHOOL looking Johns Hopkins lax shirt he found in a thrift store in NYC and it has my head spinning for a couple of reasons:
1) I can’t tell if it’s new or old. My gut says that it’s new and just designed to look like it’s old. But I’m not 100% here, can someone help me out?
2) The price tag! This thrift store was asking $39.99 for the T-shirt!!!! If that’s the case, it had better be old, legit, designed by Petro, signed by Quint, worn by Kyle Harrison and made out of recycled titanium lacrosse shafts.
The shirts is sweet, but the chances of me paying $40 for a worn out t-shirt are exactly 0.0%. NO CHANCE. Fashion isn’t THAT important!
I love an Old School looking lax shirt, but this is getting preposterous. And what part of a $40 T is “thrifty”? Only in NYC, Paris and London.
