Vintage Single Stitch T-Shirts

Single stitch vintage t-shirts refer to the finishing on the hem of the vintage t-shirt. Look at the t-shirts that you've bought recently. Check the end of the sleeve. Do you see this parallel line of stitching to finish the sleeve opening? This is double stitching and it is the way 99% of all modern t-shirts are finished. But there was a different way. Starting in the 50's until the late 90's, the USA produced their t-shirts themselves. You can already guess, these t-shirts were single stitched. When massive clothing production moved away from the USA, single stitched t-shirts were no longer produced. Therefore, single stiching in combination with a tag that says "Made in the USA" is a reliable way of dating vintage t-shirts.
