Gonna Make You Sweatshirt

If it's vintage clothes and EPCOT Center, it must be another one of my posts. This fabulous sweatshirt is another testament to great design and the brilliant person(s) who were in charge of parks merchandise in the 1980s. It uses the main entrance illustration that was prevalent during the opening and early years of EPCOT Center and serves as a reminder of how aesthetically beautiful the main entrance used to--and can still!--be.

I miss the raglan style and wish it would make a huge comeback. In case you are not familiar with raglan, it's a baseball style shirt with 3/4 length sleeves. Although this sweater has full sleeves, I will still classify it as such.

The tag reads large and I hope it means a child's large because I definitely can't fit into it.

I found an super keen 1982 Epcot mug under some bushes on a Kitchener street. There are 4 bands of colour around the mug; purple, orange, yellow & red with the Epcot logo in the centre. The colours are still really vibrant. I'l send you some pics if you like. I love the fact that finding it was completely random. The mug is an 80's dream come true.
