Continuing in the tradition of my last post (link), here is another new shirt currently being sold at Walt Disney World. It looks very similar to the design of a shirt I own from the 1980s. However, claiming that this shirt is trying to replicate the overall look and feel of an older product is a bit of a stretch considering it uses such an iconic image. Still, it looks too much like something I own to go unnoticed by yours truly.
This is the shirt I own. It is from the 1980s and is as brilliant and appealing as it was back then. A few noticeable differences are the newer shirt is already designed to look old, the material is see-through and the colors are faded. Also, the newer shirt is made for girls, while mine--though probably made for men at the time-- could pass as a unisex.
Similar to the "new vintage" WDW t-shirt from last post, these Mickey Mouse shirts are sold in different colors. While they may not have the zest of my yellow shirt, I do think it's a good idea to appeal to more people and their taste in fashion.
I'd like to see this color paired with a Minnie Mouse design.
This shirt is one of many examples of the return to truly great Disney theme park merchandise. While I do have reservations about how thin the material is, I can't help being won over by its simplicity and use of a great design. Expect a couple more posts about new Disney t-shirts as there are quite a few winners currently on the market at WDW.
