Spotlight on a Random Top Shelfer - Back to School

T-shirt Teacher

For the past two months, students living in LaGrange Hall have had to deal with a huge problem - three days out of every week there is not any hot water in Lagrange. As a student and resident, for over a thousand dollars a semester, I expect to at least have my basic needs of living supplied, but I guess hot water is just too much to ask for.

Tag: Russell athletic

Era: early 80s

Fabric: 50-50

Size reads: M

Measures: 19 inches across the chest, 26 inches back collar to hem

Colors: green shirt with gold Lagrange Hall House Council 1982-83 print

Condition: great vintage shape, soft and thin, stretchy and smooth

For reference, Harley Quinn over there is 5-8 and taking care of nothing.

This shirt can be found here for a mere $22. Tons of new vintage hitting the website in the coming days and weeks - find it all here and here.

Donde Estan His Pantalones?

This guy's story would have been much more plausible had he been wearing a Vintage Vantage Donde Estan Mis Pantalones? t-shirt.

Half-naked motorist to cops: I lost my pants
Del. man faces charges after being pulled over while 'driving commando'

RISING SUN, Md. - A Delaware man who claimed he lost his pants faces drunken driving charges after authorities say the deputy who pulled him over noticed he was in the buff below the waist.

A spokesman for Maryland's Cecil County Sheriff's Office said 41-year-old Jonathan Schultz "was driving commando" and only partially covered with a towel on his lap, though he was wearing a shirt.

Lt. Bernard Chiominto said Schultz was stopped Saturday near Rising Sun for going 69 mph in a 50-mph zone.

Chiominto said the deputy smelled alcohol and noticed Schultz's semi-exposed situation. The Newark, Del., man told the deputy he'd lost his pants, and the deputy didn't find any in the car.

It was unclear if Schultz had an attorney, and an attempt to reach him at a relative's home was unsuccessful.
