I bought a new Alternative Tentacles tshirt to replace the one I bought in the early 1980s. I didn't realize how faded it had become until I placed them side by side. I like the way the old one looks and feels better than the new one. The new one will improve in a few years.
The design is from 1979 by the great Winston Smith.
