7. The Fake Vintage Band Shirt

Here’s a secret: A lot of the vintage band shirts you see weren’t actually shirts! This bad boy for example is a reprint of a poster from some epic shows in the early 70s. But since Zep didn’t start making shirts until the mid 70s this bad boy isn’t a repro, just a cool shirt reminding you of a different era.
