You gotta love the Pants On The Ground song. I know I do! With that said, we would like to introduce you to a very cool pair of vintage Budweiser shorts.
Here is what the seller, LuxuryLuxury, has to say: These unbelievably RARE, undoubtedly ridiculous Budweiser Shorts are the ultimate conversational piece for your wardrobe.These are made of soft cotton denim with all the features you'd find on jean shorts, belt loops, front and back pockets with snap button above zippered fly.
We say click on the picture and have a look at their amazing Etsy store. Also check out their fine Ebay Store.

The question of the day is a very meaningful one for us here at VP's. The first person to comment below the month and year vintagepimps started selling on Ebay, as well as the reason why we LOVE vintage tees, wins a Premium Vintage tee. This is kind of a subjective question, so the best answer wins! Happy Writing!
The Ebay Tee of the Day goes to none other than Wyco vintage. This amazing Harley tee has some bad ass attitude and is a must have for any Harley tee collector. Put something exciting between your legs, and also put something exciting on your chest. Buy this tee before someone else does!

Here at the Pimps, we love stand out graphics on a vintage t-shirt. They are works of art that reside on our chests. The fun thing about vintage is that people before you wore them with pride and considered it to be one of their favorite pieces of clothing. Passing down the torch from generation to generation. We want to profile some of the greatest graphic vintage tees currently for sale at Hattrick Vintage and SoCalVintage. Enjoy the show!
Molly, owner of ValueSavvy, sure knows a lot about vintage boots. That is one of her biggest sellers in her online store. The above pair of boots are in amazing shape and need a home in a bad way! Here is what the seller has to say about them:
Fabulous vintage 9West brown leather "riding" boots up for auction. Made in Brazil. Attractive design with Mock Croc in the middle of the shafts. Excellent lightly enjoyed condition with only minor scuffs on heel area. Hard to find in such GREAT CONDITION!!!We recommend that you check out her Ebay store, and in particular a cool Smokey and the Bandit sweatshirt that was just listed. We have only great things to say about Molly and her passion for vintage clothing, and we find her love for the vintage business infectious.

Today is one of those days when I can't decide between 2 tees for the Ebay Tee of the Day post, so I figured why not put them both up. The above 2 tees are being sold by Ebay Blog Sponser and vintage t-shirt legend Vintage Retro Wear. I think I might have to buy these! How can you go wrong with a Dr. J Last House Call tee and a Andre The Giant 1980's WWF tee? Aren't vintage tees just works or art?!

The Ebay Tee of the Day is this amazing Michael Jackson 1984 Kansas City tour tee being sold by Wyco Vintage. They say a picture is worth a thousands words. Check this MJ Tee out, as well as their amazing Ebay Store, and don't be shy about leaving comments below, 1000 words or less!
- When did you first get into collecting and selling vintage t-shirts? I''m going on 10 years selling vintage shirts.
- What is the most money you ever sold a vintage t-shirt for? 350.00 for a 1977 led zeppelin.
- Which shirt in your personal collection would you NEVER part with? And why? A 1983 clash tee I bought at the US festival...why I wouldn't part with it...well that is my favorite band and that was the last gig those guys did with Mick Jones in the band...plus it's just a kick ass shirt.
- For someone starting to collect and wear vintage tees, what suggestions do you have for them? Buy from someone you trust so you don't get taken by those who sell reprints as the real deal. And if your think they are rock shirts....make sure they have the copy right date below...as 99% of rock shirts from the 80s will have a copy right date below the print ...most 70s rock tees don't!
- What is the driving force behind your passion for vintage tees? Is this a lifelong affair?! I worked for rock bands selling their t-shirts from gig to gig...worked for acts such as Social Distortion, The Cramps, Rollins Band, Peter Murphy, Joe Jackson, Lords of the New Church, OMD, Stan Ridgway (wall of voodoo) just to name a few..so I really just have fun selling swag, plus some of these shirts bring back a blast from the past for me.

Here at VintagePimps, we love caricature tees. What is there not to love about them?

Nasa tee being sold by Ebay vintage legends Smith and Pooter. These guys were one of the first sellers of vintage tees during it's infancy in the early 00's, and have been going strong ever since. I even have to give them credit for getting me started with finding and selling vintage tees. Thanks fellas. Keep up the great work!

The Ebay tee of the day is this really nice Rodney Dangerfield 1980 comedy tour t-shirt. Rodney was one of the funniest comedians of all time. All he ever wanted was a little respect...isn't that what we all want? The seller of this fine tee is Doublesixvintage. They always keep their ebay store stocked with vintage t-shirts and have a very nice feedback rating. They get the vintagepimps stamp of vintage approval, so we recommend you check them out!
