A rather unusual and rare creation of an early Adam Ant track "The Idea". Short sleeve tee t-shirt top, where the graphics are made up of what appear to be images of Adam and that leather gimp mask... And some lyrics taken from "The Idea" Ant's track. I'd describe the print colours as a mix of pink and grey. I'm not sure if this was an Adam Ant design originally..
Perhaps from a late 70's or 80's flyer or similar... Or just a designer's creation made in such a way as to recreate that classic Ant collage look.
By the look and feel of it it's likely 100% cotton, soft and quite lightweight... But there are no size labels so I've simply suggested a size L? Please see the measurements I've added below. There is also no evidence of the actual shirt maker going by the rather precisely removed label but instead the creator/printer has stamped the words "Westway Made in Britain" on it inside and within the back of the neck area. It could be classed as unisex, as although I've listed it in Men's, I had bought it for myself.
I've never worn it, I can't really wear white.. At a guess I'd say I bought it around 15 - 20 years ago and it is still perfectly wearable... But I've no idea of the actual year of it's creation, it could already be vintage... It does appear to be quite unique..
Although I do have a grey one of these in a larger size/thicker shirt by the same creator listed if you're interested. 21 flat across the front, underarm to underarm, unstretched..There is further stretch to this being a cotton jersey type weave. 24 in length taken from the back of the neck seam to the hem. On photographing it, I have just noticed that there are a couple of very fine dark lines on each the sleeves, which don't show up terribly well in the photos sadly, (I tried).. I will launder the shirt again prior to sending just to see if it's from being in storage, they will likely come straight out..
But if not then I've at least made you aware of them... They certainly don't affect the wearing of the shirt and aren't overly noticeable. It would be perfect for the collector of such things.. Either to keep or to wear.. Or as a gift for any Ant fan.
I will be listing a lot more Adam & the Ant's related clothing and items over the coming weeks/months... So please feel free to message me if you are looking for anything in particular.. As I have quite a large collection of books, vinyl albums, CDs, tee shirts, badges etc etc... Much of it vintage and quite rare... I'm always open to sensible offers.
Just let me know if you need any further details in regards to bust, waist or length measurements etc. I sell items I no longer wear or have bought and then never worn.. If I dont know there's a problem I can't really help. This item is in the category "Clothes, Shoes & Accessories\Men\Men's Clothing\Shirts & Tops\T-Shirts".
