I'd take a chance with a Slayer shirt. My dad has a pretty sweet one.

The more stylized the shirt the bigger chance that it's poseur.

To be honest Slayer is probably an exception. I'd be more suspect of Megadeth, Metallica, and Maiden shirts. And let's not even get started on the Nirvana and Zeppelin shirts...

Don't remember seeing any Megadeth shirts, but I haven't stepped into a Hot Topic/Spencer's/whatever in years, so things might have changed. But yes on the others. So far as I know there is no way to be sure that someone didn't buy a Metallica shirt at a poseur store unless it's a legit tour t-shirt. And no one would care if it wasn't pre-Black Album anyway.

Dude, I'm wearing a Metallica shirt right now, wtf. Can't believe you are the guys that just judge of a ****ing shirt. Just ask me about the band first before you assume.
