Cosmic t-shirt

Marshall Lester London was not a label I’d heard of until I bought this fabulous, long-sleeved nylon t-shirt at The Garment District (vintage store in Cambridge, MA).

There's some info on the label here.

Bright golden yellow plastered with red, white and blue stars, the planet Saturn and the number ‘7,’ I think it's a highly visible garment that's just perfect for Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday.


Worn with my trusty 1970s bronze moon face pendant, 1930s bakelite pin, and a thrifted cotton vest.

Stars, suns, and moons are my leitmotifs. Here are some photos I took on my travels this year.

Top two: Sun and moon from stonework frieze from the 18th-century Circus (townhouses arranged in a circular shape) in Bath, UK. The Circus was supposed to represent 'the sun’ whereas the nearby Royal Crescent represented ‘the moon.’ Bottom left to right: Sun detail from a 16th-century maiolica plate, National Museum of Ravenna, Italy. Sun detail from a stained glass window in the Winter Smoking Room, Cardiff Castle, interiors designed by William Burges (1827-1881).

You're back! That tee shirt is fantastic, I'd definitely have snapped that up, too. Vintage tees are as rare as hens teeth. xxx

That's fantastic t-shirt, what a great find. Vix is tight, you rarely see vintage t-shirts, I guess they were worn so often that in the end, people just threw them away. xxx
