Just out of curiosity, and to keep myself from doing something more important, I typed the word "retro" into the search bar at Zazzle.com. Zazzle is the site we're affiliated with that sells all of the awesome and unique invites and gift items that we're always talking about here on Retro Invites. I was pretty surprised when a Mickey Mouse t-shirt popped up.
Of course it was the vintage style (my personal favorite) of Walt's famous mouse that is being sold by the Disney shop. But... I guess I just always thought of that design as something that would be considered "vintage" and not necessarily "retro".
And even more surprising was that it wasn't just one Mickey shirt but a whole page of mostly old-fashioned style Mickey shirts and gift items.
In order to better serve this blog and anyone who reads it, into the future, I'll be searching for and exploring the subtle differences between retro and vintage design styles and try to describe the differences as best I can.
Follow along as we learn together. ~Retro Robin

They have 174 shirt styles with many to fit infants all the way up to large adults. After visiting the page, scroll down a bit and look to the side to see a link where you can see all of the styles.
