Last shirt I have to post. Its from the Journey Force Fan Club featuring art from the Time3 box set. It dont really fit in with the collection. But I have to post it. Still has the beetle on there.
Hope to post a couple more shirts for I will never stop checking eBay and vintage clothing stores around the world. I hope to share this blog with the band (I have a lead on the current drummer) and whomever else can fill the gaps in this collection which is nearly complete. I may move on to random thoughts and postings from here, but hope you come along and check out the garb from time to time. I love Journey.
Here are a few poorly captured shots of some of the tags on the Journey shirts I own. Just to give you an idea what to look for if you are trying to determine if a shirt is fake or real. Good luck and dont get ripped off.
I think I already posted this one, but its a roadie sweatshirt from the Journey Escape tour and is one of my favorites ever. The neckhole is a v-neck and misshapen so i generally wear it around the house to the delight of Ginger.
Here is another rarity. A road crew shirt from 1980. Pretty straightforward as you can see. I did include the last image as a comparison to the neato Journey band member softball shirt that I also am blessed to own. One says Road Crew, other says Artist. A notable distinction.
If you dont know what trim means, I cant tell you now. But this is another Journey roadie shirt relating to womanizing. This was a lucky find - someone was selling some random concert shirts on eBay, so i looked at what else they were hawking and this was in there. I wouldnt have known it was a Journey related one unless I had gotten the pink one in the previous post. I love how inappropriate this is.
Ahoy. This is a beat up Journey roadie shirt got as part of a group being sold on eBay that included my Journey Escape Japan tour rising sun shirt. I guess this was their secret club logo for chasing skirt. I am posting another here in a bit. This one is pink and i have never worn it because its so beat up. But i like that i got it
These two shirts were created in honor of Pat Morrow, the tour manager for Journey in the 80s. Apparently up close he looked like the Gerber Baby or quasi-moto depending on whom you asked. I wear the shit out of these and people always ask what its about. Got them as a lot from the Herbie Herbert auction a couple years back. Never seen anything like them elsewhere.
