Child's J5 T-Shirt

Today Michael is modeling a child-size t-shirt with a 1972 J5 photo screened onto it.

I bought this recently from a dealer in the U.K., and, again, I can't be sure of its authenticity. It is similar to the one that Randy is holding up in this picture -- same photo, just reversed.

The shirt is tiny, about a child's size 6, and that's one of the things that makes me think it's authentic. Most creators of vintage tees make them for teens and adults to wear.

Still, a few months after I purchased this shirt another one popped up on eBay, exactly like it. This could either mean that someone is busy producing them right now. Or that someone found a supply in a warehouse somewhere, perhaps leftover from the J5's 1972 visit to the U.K.


  1. Why does Marlon have a copy of Jermaine's LP, lol.

  2. You know why, LK! Marlon's solo effort was, uh, still a mere rumor. (And, hi, by the way.)
