Our closets here at Retrospace are so full of T-shirts, we couldn't fit them all into one post. Here's another round of glorious vintage tees... and please, I beg of you, don't ever wear your t-shirts ironically. Iron-Ons - Yes. Irony - No.
The 1970s truly was the decade of the T-shirt. In prior decades, it was just too casual for public use - plus, they weren't emblazoned with your favorite bands, etc. In the 70s, it was an identity statement, and with iron-ons, you could have a limitless selection of choices.

The men's action rag gets a bad rap for being misogynistic. Sure, there's no doubt they were... but they also featured a ton of powerful women as well. For every helpless damsel being tortured by Nazis, there was a badass chick with a gun some schmuck's hide.
So, here's a stack of dangerous dames, lethal ladies, and warrior women for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
