If you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been on quest to locate some of the original 1970s-80s Towncraft undershirts for over a year now, and while I’ve found some from time to time, I’ve never come across a bunch of them like I did today!
Man, did we hit the mother-load! A friend of mine who dabbles in vintage t-shirts contacted me recently to let me know he was going to be coming into possession of some vintage Towncraft undershirts.
Well, I heard from him today and got the official word he received his first batch! These vintage undershirts are so popular and wildly sought after, he’s already sold 3 of them today since I saw him earlier!
Now, for those who may recall, although I’ve heard a TON of great things about the original Towncraft undershirts, I’ve never had the pleasure of trying them for myself – that is – until today.
Well, let me tell you – these undershirts are completely amazing! I got to try a medium v-neck Towncraft 50% Fortrel Polyester / 50% Combed Cotton – it was super thin and lightweight, stretchy, it conformed to my body and are honestly one of the most comfortable undershirts I have ever had the pleasure of wearing.
It felt like I wasn’t even wearing an undershirt. I put it on and was whisked away by this undershirt’s sheer, lightweight comfort. I normally like my undershirts a little longer (the medium measured roughly 25.75″ long), but heck this undershirt was so comfortable, I almost didn’t care.
My friend sent me over a partial inventory list, so I’ve embedded it below so everyone can see some of the items he currently has for sale. He did mention that he was going to be getting more after the new year and would be sending me an updated inventory list.
If you’d like to purchase one of these hard to find vintage undershirts, please send an email to Kelly at: vintageundershirts [at] gmail [dot] com with the item number you are interested in buying and he’ll take it from there! Tell him Tug sent you.
Better act fast because these undershirts will be sold out quickly. Happy undershirt shopping everyone!
