Oh my stars, look at this RAD collectible rare shirt by International News, aka I.N. Ware, out of LA in the 80's and 90's. KaPoW your friends with envy for this ultra hip over 20 year old retro manga printed shirt. It was purchased by an old surfer at a garage sale in a California beach town. More items from that cute couple coming soon!!!

This shirt is cool on so many levels: hip, double novelty prints of yellow stars and characters from what looks like it would come from an early manga fantasy comic strip, one guy has horns and a fro. International News Ware branding on characters uniforms. "ACTY3" printed in red in places, too.

Manga is a Japanese word, literally translated to mean "whimsical pictures." Indian cotton and washed to the ultimate softness, perfect for that evening garden party. I spotted two flaws on front of shirt, near left underarm, but it does not detract from the overall wearability of this gem. Snags that created lines in fabric at underarm seam are 2 and 4 inches long and the price reflects these two lines. A couple of slight pinpoint size gray spots throughout but that could have been done during the dyeing of the fabric.

Tag sewn at inner side seam says:
"This is a life style garment to ensure that you will enjoy for a long time, wash seperately in cold water. max 40 degrees for best wearing, hang to dry iron if you like."
Printed in French on other side of tag.


It's lightweight, so you or yours will look HOT while keeping COOL!
