Pull-ring zipper shirts:

These were popular circa '71 - '73. I had one just about the time Maureen was modeling hers (although hers seems to be more like a sweater). Even though they were kind of popular and alot of people had them, it's almost impossible to find a picture of them on the internet these days. Mine was a long sleeve navy blue shirt with white bicycles printed all over it. Yeah, it was awesome...

I found a whole bag full of these zips at a thrift store last year...round, rectangular, brown, blue, red...fabulous! Still haven't used them yet, but I have some great '70s patterns that are just screaming for them!!

I loved my zipper shirt but never wore it to school because stupid dumb boys would walk up to you and pretend they were going to yank the zipper down.
