Yeah i figured it was not a authentic shirt,even though the seller says it is,vh could learn a thing or two this,like selling the fans good quality stuff,not the crappy thin shirts that were falling apart the first time i washed them. :x

shorty,

Actually, Van Halen does indeed make very good quality shirts that are exactly the same quality as the bootleg shirt that you purchased that you are so happy with. ALL of the official VH shirts that Van Halen Store sells are high quality, thick, 100% cotton.

View all official VH shirts here.

The only time Van Halen ever sold the thinner shirts was during the first two months of the 2007 tour. Then they switched back to the thicker tees. And at Van Halen Store, we only sell the thick shirts.

shorty,

Glad you like all the stuff from VH store!

Some people actually prefer the thinner, fitted, shirts (myself included) because they look, feel, and fit more like the vintage shirts from the '70's & '80's. The thinner ones actually cost more than the thicker, regular-fit shirts (believe it or not). But most VH fans prefer the thicker shirts, which they are more familiar with, so VH switched back to the thicker ones.
